Most of us understand the importance of keeping our immune systems functioning properly. Exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet and getting plenty of rest are the building blocks of which our health practitioners constantly remind us. However, some may not know why it’s so important to have a well-functioning immune system.
The immune system plays a tremendous part in your overall health; pretty much every cell and tissue in the body is affected by it. While the immune system protects you from coughs and colds (flu season anyone?) it also helps the body fight against more serious conditions like cancer, aging and joint deterioration.
Some immune system basics:
- Plays a crucial role in maintaining proper health
- Prevents disease-causing bacteria from damaging the body
- A strong immune system can mean
- Fewer infections like head colds
- More resistance to seasonal allergies
- Less damage to the body from chronic stress
- A slower aging process
- Life changes (diet, activity, environment, etc) can temporarily impact its effectiveness
As a chiropractic patient, you understand how adjustments benefit your body when it comes to muscles, joints and your spine, and you may have experienced how they help relieve symptoms related to chronic stress. Another benefit you could be receiving from regular adjustments is an improved immune system.
Chiropractic adjustments help the nervous system via the spine. The nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) controls pretty much everything. Spinal adjustments can produce a “reaction cascade” that allows the body to do what it does best–fight germs. A boost to your immune system is a bonus of regular chiropractic care.
Research continues to explore and observe the link between our nervous systems, spinal adjustments and the health of our immune systems. Many chiropractors see first-hand how their patients’ symptoms or susceptibilities decline through regular care. If you always seem to get sick in October or experience sinusitis at the first bud on a tree, consult your chiropractor about it. An additional or modified adjustment could be the ticket to a stronger immune system. If you are not under chiropractic care this is the time to do it!
