Chiropractic, Immunity and YOU Posted on June 22, 2019 Chiropractic, immunity and YOU. Most people don’t understand how important their immune system is now, and most certainly, later on in their lives. Most people understand that our healing rate slows later on in our lives…as such, we need to continually train our immune system to fight when we are young. Unfortunately, we have been trained through the media and pharmaceutical companies to take a pill for every ache, cough or sniffle. This continual ingestion of chemicals inhibits our immune system in learning how to most effectively deal with pathogens and threats to our health. Our immune system is a dynamic and intelligent system that learns about bacteria and viruses and how to defeat them. If we continually pollute our bodies with chemicals…even those designed to suppress symptoms, we lose in the long run. Our nervous system and immune system work as an intimately linked team to learn about, create a battle plan for, and defeat threats such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc. Chiropractic care has been proven to enhance the function of the immune system and has even been shown to boost T4 helper cells (involved with HIV infection). Is chiropractic care a cure for things like HIV? No! Is it a sure for Cancer? NO! Chiropractic has a proven track record of not only improving the functionality of the immune system, it helps with things like back pain, headaches, neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and so many other health concerns. The best thing that you can do for your overall health and to improve the health of your spine and joints is to get checked by a chiropractor. We, at Life Lounge Chiropractic and Health Center in Burlington, Ontario have spent the better part of our lives trying to help people improve their health ands their lives. Try chiropractic and improve YOU!
