Regular supportive, maintenance chiropractic adjustments can help to address spinal dysfunctions that you may not realize even exist within you but can cause and lead to illness. The little boost in your immune function that chiropractic care provides is a welcome benefit of an already healthy host and a huge boost if you are suffering from a cold/flu/infection or other weakened immune system situation.
Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that will give your immune system a major boost. It is known for it’s cold and flu fighting power. To get a little more Vitamin C, you can add foods like oranges, lemons, limes, and other citrus fruits. You can also up your intake of leafy greens like dark lettuce, kale, and spinach.
Just like all other parts of the body, regular exercise will help keep the immune system healthy. It can help you to maintain a healthy weight, keep blood sugar and blood pressure regulated. Exercise is one of the best ways to keep yourself healthier and can help you fight off illness so that you can stay that way longer.
Regular Chiropractic Care
Seeing a chiropractor regularly can make a big difference in your immune system. Keeping the spine in proper alignment allows all parts and systems in the body to function more efficiently. Since the spine is part of the central nervous system, keeping it aligned allows messages to travel amongst the body freely.
Adjustments on a specific inflamed area of the body reduces stress on the nervous system, allowing it to better communicate with the rest of the body. The better your nervous system can function and communicate, the better the rest of your body can function and communicate. Save the trip to your doctor and unnecessary medications by avoiding the illness before it happens. Contact us for more information on this.
I see Dr. Vann for chiropractic adjustments and she is wonderful too. The time they spend with each patient is more than I’ve ever had with any other chiropractor. They work with you on stretching, exercises, and massages which made such a difference for me. I cannot recommend this Center enough.
