When the leaves turn gold and copper, you know winter is right around the corner. For some, seasonal allergies act up and the first colds of the season start.
Yet, if you’re like most wellness-minded folks, you want to boost your immunity. Chiropractic care is a great tool to add to your arsenal of Vitamin C, healthy eating, and exercise.
While most people think of chiropractic treatments as something for back or neck pain, it turns out it’s highly beneficial for the immune system too.
What IS the Immune System?
We talk about the immune system a lot. At least the media does and chances are, you’ve seen friends or family ask about favorite flu or cold remedies on Facebook.
But you might not have stopped to wonder about the immune system itself. That is, as long as it’s doing its job in keeping you healthy, you don’t wonder. But with cold and flu season coming and with COVID-19 still here, you might be wondering more than usual how you can boost your immunity.
As you may know, your immune system is a collection of cells, proteins, and tissues that work together to keep you healthy. When it’s compromised, your body is at risk of kinds of diseases. From annoying allergies to serious issues like cancer.
It could be possible to boost your immunity with chiropractic care.
How Can You Boost Your Immunity with Chiropractic Care?
Now, let me be clear, chiropractic care is only one component of a healthy wellness regimen. You still want to eat your fruits and veggies, get regular exercise, plenty of sleep, and reduce your stress.
But aside from those healthy habits, regular chiropractic care can also help because it’s maintenance for your spine. As you might know, a chiropractic adjustment realigns your spine which can help open up the highway so to speak between your brain and body. Essentially, when your spine is straight, your body is better able to send messages from the brain and back again.
When your brain and body have open communication, it benefits the nervous system.
The nervous system is like a central highway in your body. Your spinal cord serves as that highway and it delivers messages back and forth to your brain. You can probably see why it could be helpful to prevent roadblocks like pinched nerves and other pains that put obstacles in the way of your brain and body connection.
You want to keep the traffic flowing on that highway and chiropractic care can help.
“The World Health Organization defines health as being “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (Source)
