Every fall, doctors across the country ask their patients to vaccinate against the flu. While most people immediately roll up their sleeves for the nurse to administer a small dose of virus into their bodies, others wonder if vaccination is really safe and effective; and if not, what is the safer alternative.
For decades, chiropractic care has been shown to strengthen the immune system, and allow the body’s own defense mechanism to fight diseases. During the 1918 flu pandemic, millions of people lost their lives to the H1N1 influenza virus around the world. Data gathered months after, pointed to one interesting statistic; those who sought chiropractic care had a dramatically lesser chance of becoming sick, staying sick, or dying from the flu than those treated medically.
Why Chiropractic Care Works
The nervous system is responsible for every single function of the human body; from blinking, breathing, digestion and walking, to healing injuries and fighting disease. Hence, any misalignment in the spine will put unnecessary and dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves, causing nerve interference. Without proper nerve energy to the vital organs, the body becomes weak, diseased, and prone to illness.
Corrective chiropractic care through a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® aims to realign the spine back to its optimal curve, eliminating nerve interference, and promoting healthy nerve flow back to the limbs and organs. The result is a much stronger immune system, healthier organ function, renewed sense of health and wellness, and of course an end to back and neck pain.
