Beat Illness With Chiropractic This Holiday Season
By Genevieve Cunningham
The fall and winter are full of tons of holiday fun. This is the time of year that so many people look forward to all year long. Somehow, it seems almost unfair that it’s also the time of year for colds, the flu, and other illnesses. But what can we do about it? In order to protect yourself from sickness, it’s best to start with prevention. And this can be done by strengthening the immune system. If you would like to get a jumpstart on protecting yourself this season, take a look at how chiropractic care may be able to help.
Why Now is the Best Time
What is it about the holidays that makes it the perfect time to watch your health? There are so many things. For starters, the holidays are stressful, and excessive stress is a natural immune depressant. This means that if germs are able to invade, your immune system may not be able to fight them off as quickly as it normally would. The holidays are also packed with travel and numerous groups of people. This means that you’ll be exposed to so many more germs than at almost any other time of year. You’ll be bombarded! Because of this exposure, it makes perfect sense to get the immune system as strong as possible so that it can handle the influx of germs and other invaders.
How Chiropractic Can Help
So what does chiropractic care have to do with the immune system? It all starts in the spine. The spine is a part of the central nervous (CNS), and the CNS is responsible for communicating with other systems in the body … such as the immune system. When the spine is in poor health, the CNS suffers. This also means that communication suffers, and other systems in the body are unable to work at full capacity. Chiropractors may be able to enhance the health of the spine, setting off a chain reaction that ends in a stronger, more efficient immune system to last you through the holidays.
