Having a strong immune system is important for keeping you healthy. As we head into cold and flu season, it is especially important that your immune system is functioning at its peak.
Your immune system fights off viruses, toxins, colds, allergies and cancers. Your body’s response to small things can reflect a properly functioning immune system. The nervous system and immune system work together in order for healing and adaptation to occur. If you have any spinal misalignments, your immune system can be compromised. Having regular chiropractic adjustments can help boost the immune system.
What can cause problems with your immune system?
There are a few things that can cause dysfunction including autoimmune disorders, cancer, immunodeficiency disorder, allergies, stress.
Our nervous system communicates to our immune system. The central nervous system provides information so the brain can react. If you have misalignments of the spine (subluxations), this can cause poor communication between the immune system and brain.
How can Chiropractic care help?
Chiropractic adjustments will restore the misalignments in your spine. This will restore the communication between your brain and immune system. With a central nervous system that is functioning at its best, your immune system becomes equipped to defend your body from diseases, illness and infections.
