How Chiropractics Helps Protect You From Free Radicals

If you have heard anything about chiropractics, you know that it can really do a world of good for bringing all natural pain relief, particularly for people who are dealing with back and neck pain. Maybe you are someone who gets chiropractic treatment on a regular basis, and you have begun to notice many of its health benefits. While chiropractic treatment has been linked to the improvement of a wide variety of conditions, from back pain to anxiety to even frequent leg cramps, there are still new ways being found about how chiropractic works to treat the body.

One of the more surprising facts that I recently learned from an article by Chiro Nexus is that the physical act of chiropractic treatment itself can actually work to increase the amount of antioxidants in a patient's body. What's more is that chiropractic care can also improve the effectiveness of these antioxidants so that they are much more capable of fighting off free radicals, and preventing the harmful oxidation of cells in the body. This is especially important for your skin cells, as oxidation of these types of cells can often lead to the development of skin cancer.

Researchers suggest that the method of correcting misalignments in the body with manual manipulation techniques really works to improve circulation and blood flow throughout the entire body, which may play an important part in increasing the amount and effectiveness of the antioxidants in the body. Of course, you should always be sure to apply sunscreen every day at an SPF of at least thirty, if not even higher than that. It is also a good idea to wear sunglasses and a big hat while out in the sun, and be sure to, if you can, limit your sun exposure as much as you can between the hours of twelve noon and two in the afternoon.

This time is often when the sun is at its highest zenith in the sky and will therefore emit the most amount of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Also be sure to eat a diet that is health and balanced with plenty of nutritious foods. The omega 3 fatty acids from salmon and chia seeds are beneficial for warding away cancer, while the compounds that are found in carrots and tomatoes are also extremely beneficial for fighting off free radicals.

Stick with a balanced diet and a regular regimen of exercise and chiropractic to keep your health stable.
