See Your Local Chiropractor
Your body needs uninterrupted communications with your nervous system to ensure optimal health, and the best way to achieve that is with regular chiropractic adjustments. The gentle adjustments your chiropractor provides help to improve the function of the body's major systems, support quality sleep, and alleviate pain and discomfort. And since chiropractic care avoids the use of prescription medications and invasive procedures, you will be able to witness your body's all-natural healing powers come into play!
Exercise Every Day
Speaking of all-natural healing powers ... since chiropractic care can alleviate pain and restore joint function, there is no excuse to skip your workouts! Just 30 minutes of moderate exercise is enough to provide a positive impact to your body's immune system, so be sure to prioritize some form of daily physical activity. Some good choices of low-impact workouts are walking, cycling, and swimming.
Stay on Top of Your Vitamin D
If you live in a northern climate, you are more likely to spend most of your time indoors, which means you may not be getting the appropriate amount of Vitamin D every day. Try to consume more foods that are rich in this vitamin, such as salmon, egg yolks, milk, and yogurt or ask your doctor about supplementation. You can also head outdoors for an extra dose of sunshine, just be sure to bundle up!
Get Enough sleep
Sleep and immunity are so closely tied, we may as well call them best friends. And nobody wants to break up a great friendship, right? You have to get your sleep if you want to reduce your risk of sickness, so make sure you are following a consistent bedtime routine and turn off all electronics at least an hour before you hit the hay. Also, don't forget that if you do get sick, sleep is the best thing for your body!
