Include chiropractic adjustment to boost your immune system- fight off the flu this season naturally.
The holiday season is just around the corner. While many of us are excited about being with family and celebrating, this also means that the flu season is quickly approaching us. The question I get asked by patients this time of the year is, “What does Chiropractic and Immune System have in common?”
The first thing you need to know about the human body is that the Nervous System is THE master control center of the entire body. Which means, the Nervous System controls every other system in the body; it controls your digestive system, cardiovascular system, including your Immune System.
How chiropractic can boost your immune system?
The Nervous System consists of 3 main parts: the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord. Chiropractors work with the spine because it directly protects the brainstem and spinal cord. By making sure the spine is in good alignment will ensure the brain is communicating with the rest of the body without interruption. In turn, Chiropractic care is one of the best natural ways to boost your immune system.
According to The World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA), they are recommending chiropractic care to people, young and old, to fight off the flu during holiday season. Researchers are saying that spinal adjustments have a direct positive effect on the body’s immune function, and can boost your immune system, so that you can fight the flu naturally.
Have you ever wondered why some people always get sick? Since the immune system is responsible for protecting us from the flu, these viruses don’t threaten us equally. Studies show that regular chiropractic care over time can boost one’s immune system by up to 200% compared to those not under care.
Having a 200% greater increase in your immune system is a big advantage. Let’s say that you have caught the flu virus, by chance. Having a big boost in your immune system can mean the difference between being sick for 2-3 days compared to 2-3 weeks. A strong immune system can also help you fight off that virus a lot quicker.
Your immune system can protect you form the flu, get chiropractic adjustments.
The infamous flu epidemic in 1917-18 was a historic moment in the Chiropractic profession. This deadly epidemic killed over 50 million people worldwide, including about 500,000 Americans.
During this time, Chiropractic was still being developed in Davenport, Iowa. Researchers there reported that there were 93,590 patients being treated by medical doctors, of which there were 6,116 deaths. That is 1 loss out of about every 15 patients.
Meanwhile, Chiropractors were adjusting flu patients at the Palmer School of Chiropractic. A total of 1,635 patients were under chiropractic care there, receiving regular adjustments with only one death. It was the great success in treating flu patients with chiropractic care during this epidemic that led to the profession’s licensure in many states.
So as you are planning for your wellness plan during this flu season, consider adding chiropractic care to the list.
