How Does Chiropractic Care Help My Immune System?
Our body's immune system is responsible for our overall health. It is responsible for fighting off viruses, allergies, colds, and cancers. Our body's response to things relies on a properly functioning immune system and central nervous system, which is exactly what a Chiropractor can help with.
Many immune system disorders can threaten the body's ability to heal itself. If the immune system is not strong enough to fight off infections, an immune deficiency can cause you to be more vulnerable to disease and infections.
Boost Your Immune System With Chiropractic Adjustments
A properly functioning immune system is what Chiropractic Care is all about! A chiropractic adjustment helps regulate the autonomic nervous system which directly influences the strength of the immune system.
Our nervous system controls our brain, spinal cord and nerves. It is the communication center for our immune system. The brain needs to know what is wrong with the body so it can instruct the immune system to respond accordingly.
The central nervous system needs to provide information so the brain can respond. The reaction of the immune system to disease or any foreign substance that invades the body is based on proper instruction of the brain.
The direction from the brain to the immune system are only as good as the information that is received from the central nervous system.
Misalignments, or subluxations, of the spine, will cause poor communication between the immune system and the brain. A subluxation can cause pressure or irritation on the nerves in the spine. Like a roadblock, this will restrict the flow of information flowing between the body to the brain. A Chiropractors job is to remove the subluxation, and restore the communication by realigning the vertebrae with chiropractic adjustments. If the central nervous system is functioning correctly, the immune system will be adequately equipped to defend the body from infection or disease.
