Save the Tea, See Your Chiropractor Instead
By Donna Kostiew
I have been really sick the past couple of weeks and have relied on a special kind of tea to help get me through the horrors of it all. Sure, peppermint tea is known to be soothing when you are feeling sick, but did you also know that it is chock-full of essential vitamins and nutrients and that it can boost the body’s immune system as well? Want to know more? Of course you do! Because this widely available elixir has so many benefits for the body that you aren’t going to want to wait until you are sick to drink it.
Perks of Peppermint Tea
Peppermint tea is a delicious way to improve your overall health. It can be soothing, reviving, calming, and refreshing, all depending on the situation for which it is made. Let’s explore some of the reasons why peppermint tea is the first choice for so many people.
- Reduces fever
- Improves digestion
- Prevents nausea and vomiting
- Helps eliminate cold and flu symptoms
- Boosts immune system
- Reduces bad breath
- Controls your appetite
- Reduces stress levels
Peppermint tea is great to drink while you are sick, but don’t forget about seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic as well! Getting regular adjustments from your chiropractor helps stave off all of those nasty cold and flu germs ... as well as so much more.
Chiropractic Care Fights off Germs?
You bet it does! Joint restrictions in the spine cause changes to our bodies that can lead to poor immune responses. These restrictions can create pressure and irritation to the nerves which blocks the flow of information regarding our body's health to our brain. How well our bodies react to those pesky germs is based entirely on what our brain tells us to do. So if our body's communication lines are broken, or restricted, the chances of us getting sick are increased. We suddenly become more vulnerable and end up in bed drinking peppermint tea.
Wouldn’t You Rather See Your Chiropractor?
The brain needs the correct information to know exactly what is going on with the body, so if it receives partial, incorrect, or even no information at all, your immune system will not respond the way it is intended to. Chiropractors are experts at restoring those broken communication lines. The adjustments that they give properly align your vertebrae and help to reduce the restrictions that can potentially cause so many problems in your body. Seeing your chiropractor on a regular basis will boost your immune system so that you are able to fight off any germs before they have the chance to attack. And if those germs do get through and cause you to feel unwell, chiropractic adjustments will help your body heal itself naturally.
