Chiropractic: Your Natural Cold and Flu Fighter

By Donna Kostiew

Well, here we are. It’s that time of year again. The time when we see the freshly hung posters in our doctor’s office reminding us to get the flu shot, when our loved ones start to complain about a tickle in their throat, and when cold and flu medicines start to disappear off of the pharmacy’s shelves. We know to wash our hands throughout the day, take our vitamins and load up on Vitamin C but still, we often end up in bed with a box of tissues wondering where we went wrong.

Having a healthy immune system isn’t just about avoiding germs. I mean seriously, how would anyone even be able to do that? So instead of attempting the impossible, why don’t you schedule a quick trip to your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic and begin a program of health and wellness that will most definitely boost your immunity during this season of sickness?

The Connection Between Your Chiropractor and Your Health

Joint restrictions are stressful and can cause changes to our bodies that lead to poor immune responses. These restrictions can create pressure and irritation to the nerves in our spine, which restricts the flow of information regarding our body’s health to our brain. How well our bodies react to those pesky little invaders that seem to attack us from out of nowhere 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 to infections, allergy attacks, and other diseases.

How Can We Stop That From Happening?

Simply put, your brain needs the correct information to know exactly what is going on with your body. If it receives partial, incorrect, or even no information at all, your immune system will not respond the way it is intended to. The “fight back, take care of these germs once and for all” response that our brains typically send out will become weakened or possibly non-existent, and it is then that we find ourselves unhappily shopping the pharmacy aisles, arms loaded with tissues, medications, and bottles of orange juice.

Chiropractors are experts at restoring those broken communication lines. The adjustments that they provide properly align your vertebrae and help to reduce the restrictions that are causing so many problems in your body. They give your body the chance to take back control and heal itself naturally. And if you haven’t been attacked yet by those unwanted invaders, chiropractic care is a great way to start preventative care as well. By maintaining a balanced nervous system free from restrictions, your immune system will be able to fight off those germs before you even start to feel sick. So turn this into a family thing. Share your time being as healthy as you can, and save the pharmacy trips for shampoo and soap.
