Strengthen Your Immune System

You probably never think about your immune system and how important it is to keep it healthy. Your immune system works 24/7 and its job is to constantly check every part of your body and destroy useless and dangerous things inside you such as bacteria, viruses, dirt, splinters, dead cell, cell pieces and even cancer.

The book Spontaneous Remission has hundreds of documented cases of individuals whose cancer; infectious and parasitic disease; endocrine, nutritional, metabolic and immune disorders; diseases of the blood and blood-forming disorders; nervous system disorders; mental disorders and other diseases spontaneously healed.

Everyone has unimaginable healing ability protecting the body all the time. Your skin and the mucous membranes in your nose and throat create a physical barrier to invasion; digestive juices dissolve germs; urine cleans your urinary tract and skin secretions kill many germs when you are alive. Other defenses that your immune system handles are fever to fight infections, swelling to bring healing to injured areas and specialized cells that attack and eat intruders.

If your immune system is unhealthy it can overreact as in allergic or hypersensitivity disorders, it can underreact as in immune deficiency disorders or it can attack the body itself as in autoimmune disorders.

Some more common disorders of the immune system are: allergies, asthma, lupus, cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and others; even depression can affect the immune system. Today some scientists and clinicians are finding that childhood vaccinations are the cause to various immune system disorders.

There are many things that can boost your immune system such as inspiring stories, comedy, laughter, humor and relationships with people as well as with animals. These things can improve your immune defenses against colds and cancer, decrease your stress hormone levels and protect against heart conditions and high blood pressure.

Chiropractic care can improve your immune system. A chiropractor will analyze your structural system to locate subluxations that can cause the spine and nerve stress and impair your immune function. It has been found that psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is increasingly finding that the health of your brain, spinal cord and nerves greatly influences your physical and emotional health.

There was a study done that showed that the three most common reasons for visiting a chiropractor were ear, nose and throat/respiratory disorders followed by musculoskeletal disorders and gastrointestinal disorders. In the study 74 patients reported improvements unrelated to their presenting complaints such as improved sleep, improved immune function and improved mood.

Your body is always working to balance your chemistry, strengthen your systems and awaken your connection to life.

Let chiropractic “wake-up” your immune system. See your chiropractor on a regular basis to correct subluxations so your immune system will function closer to its optimum level.
