Boost Your Immunity With Regular Chiropractic Care
If your immune system is weak or compromised, your body will begin to show it, by constantly being susceptible to illness and discomfort. The stronger your immune system, the better chance you have at staying healthy in the face of flu season, even when all of your friends and family are coughing and sneezing like crazy.
A strong and healthy immune system also has a better and easier time fighting against allergies, so you are less likely to feel such allergic reactions as headaches, runny noses, and coughing when surrounded by pollen, dust, or pet dander. You can wait until you develop a cold before taking medication to relieve the symptoms, or you can take allergy medication every day to hopefully prevent the worst symptoms from occurring.
However, wouldn’t it make more sense to work on strengthening your immune system before you even start to feel sick, so you can avoid all the hassle of colds and allergies in the first place? You can turn to chiropractic care in order to strengthen your immune system in a safe and natural manner.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Boost Your Immune System
The health of your spinal column really can determine the health of your overall body, including your immune system. If there is even a slight misalignment, known to chiropractors as a vertebral subluxation, in your spine, the other physical functions within your body will often be compromised as well. When there is a misalignment issue in your spinal column, your nervous system experiences interference, making communication between the spinal column and the brain very difficult. This interference and lack of proper communication can, and often does, result in a decline in the functions of your body, most notably your immune system.
The body’s immune system response is produced from lymphoid organs such as your spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and bone marrow. All of these organs rely on the nervous system to work at their optimal levels. If there is any sort of interference within the nervous system, these organs have difficulty keeping up with their workload, so to speak, and your body’s immune system therefore becomes hampered and limited. This is why chiropractic care can improve the function of your immune system. With proper spinal readjustment and realignment, your immune system can be launched back into proper working order, and chances are high that you will begin to notice a decrease in instances of getting sick over time.
