With the change in temperature it is no surprise that flu season is almost here. During this time of year many people head over to the nearest CVS, hospital, or private clinic to get their annual flu shot. Did you know there is another way to combat the flu? Receiving regular adjustments will boost your immune system. Adjustments help regulate your bodies homeostasis which will keep your body healthy. Your nervous system controls your body; it tells hormones when to be secreted and excreted, it modulates muscle contraction and maintains an appropriate blood pressure. In a study conducted by Pero, patients who had been receiving regular adjustments for the past 5 years had a 200% greater immune function than those who have not. That does not mean patients are have to receive adjustments every day. Patients under a maintenance plan are getting about 2 adjustments a month, which is very manageable! Can you believe only two adjustments a month can boost your immune function by 200%! This is probably due to the increase in activity of immune system cells after chiropractic care. The body has immune cells which act like miniature soldiers and fight any viruses or bacteria that may be trying to get your body sick. Persons who receive regular adjustments have immune cells that are working more efficiently and at a higher rate than persons who have not received adjustments. This is a natural way to protect yourself against cold and flu symptoms and studies have already revealed that chiropractic care can naturally boost your immune system! The benefits are endless.
I have provided some interesting articles about how chiropractic care can help you this flu season!
