The Flu and Chiropractic Care

Posted on November 6th, 2013 by | 3 views

The Flu and Chiropractic Care


Chiropractic corrects spinal abnormalities called vertebral subluxations that result in interference of the nervous system by placing pressure on nerves. Since the nervous system controls all functions of the body including the immune system chiropractic care can have a positive effect on immune function.

What could Chiropractic Care possibly have to do with the flu?

We all know that when you are sick, your immune system is the part of your body that fights off viruses and nastiness with all its might. Therefore it would make sense to make sure your immune system is functioning optimally while the flu is making its rounds. So can Chiropractic help your immune system function at its best? Sure it can! Studies show that being adjusted once per week can increase your immune system function by up to 400%.

                  On top of this we recommend several other self care tips below:
• Expose yourself to a minimal amount of media – Doom and gloom swine flu pandemic predictions cause fear, anxiety and stress which in turn affects your immune system function in a negative manner.
• Wash your hands – Especially before eating, after going to the bathroom, and when tending to sick friends and relatives.
• Sleep – Make sure you are getting enough sleep. This is when your body does its best work.
• Limit Toxins and drugs- Limit the amount of toxins and drugs that you ingest as this will put unnecessary strain on your body.
• Eat well – Fresh vegetables, fruit and water. Less processed and junk food.
• Exercise – If the gym or running along the seafront is not your thing, find a creative aerobic activity you can do for 10 minutes a day to improve your fitness and health. The benefits on the immune system are numerous.
