Staying healthy any time of the year is a challenge, but it is especially difficult to stay healthy during a global pandemic. Choosing to prioritize your health and boost your immune system is a challenging but worthwhile task. Afterall, your lifestyle plays a huge role in whether or not you stay healthy on a consistent basis, and body deserves to run the way it was designed to!
What if I told you that Chiropractic Care can work to boost your immune system? Would you believe me? Well, it’s true! We spoke to you in our previous blog, Chiropractic Care for Overall Health and Wellness about the benefits to your overall health from regular chiropractic care, but we wanted to dive in deeper into the immune system.
The Immune System
The Immune System is a network of cells and tissues that protects the body from infectious organisms. Your body’s Immune System is made up of proteins, cells, organs, and tissues. When your immune system is not functioning properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses such as a cold, the flu, or even COVID.
Problems with the Immune System
The immune system though powerful, is temperamental and thus may not work to protect your body from illness. There are many reasons one’s immune system may not function at the highest level. Some common reasons that may cause immune systems to not function properly are:
- Being born with a primary immune deficiency.
- Have a disorder such as autoimmune disorders or allergic disorders.
- Suffering from immunodeficiency-based diseases.
- Having cancer.
Chiropractic Care and the Immune System
Chiropractic care offers so much more than just helping you relieve pain. For example, did you know that adjustments work to aide your immune system. You see, your immune system is indirectly connected to your spine, and when it is not aligned it can throw off your entire system. Chiropractors often use different techniques of spinal manipulation to relieve compression and boost your immune system. There have been many studies showcasing the link between your nervous, endocrine and immune system. When one of these three systems is not working properly, your body might not be able to truly adapt and heal.
There are many options for those suffering from a failed immune system, but we at Dr. Andrea’s understand that non-invasive and natural immune system boosters are best to when it comes to building a stronger immune system. With that said, it is important for you to know that seeing a chiropractor once will not magically boost your system but maintaining an aligned spine by visiting a chiropractor is key. Plus, every time you come in you can discuss any symptoms you have and/or changes you want in your treatment with Dr. Andrea allowing a truly customized, natural treatment option designed for your individual needs.
