Everyone is talking about immune health
And I get it, its a big deal right now with the scare over the coronavirus. What we also want to make sure of is that we are all taking steps to ensure that you’re going to be as healthy as you can be because at least right here in Southern Arizona, your risk of getting coronavirus is low.
How It Works
But you can still take steps to improve your immune health. The step we’re going to talk about in this video is chiropractic care. And for some of you this may come to a surprise. But chiropractic care is known widely for helping you to feel better, and to improve the overall function of the body but it definitely helps your nervous system. And I’ll share with you the research that shows.
- The nervous system is directly connected to the immune health, and things like an elevated sympathetic response (with sympathetic tone comes from T2-L1) elevated sympathetic tone can decrease your immune function by up to 40%. Since chiropractic adjustments help to normalize sympathetic tone, that is one mechanism that has shown the link between your adjustments and your immune system.
- Study *2 shows that individuals that had been under chiropractic care for five years or more were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not had chiropractic care; and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer and other serious diseases.
- Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to increase respiratory burst of polymorphnuclear neutrophils, those are the cells that eat up viruses like the pac man game that I’m really dating myself by mentioning this one. Definitely something that you want.
Going forward from here
So I think that’s enough for now, 3 researched ways Chiropractic can help your immune health. So now is NOT the time to avoid the chiropractors office Unless your sick and for a short while, we have to ask that you stay home if you have symptoms, but if you’re following the steps outlined in some of our other videos, then you’ll be in good shape.
Have a great week!
See you soon.
