Boost Your Immunity with a Chiropractor

ayogaDid cold and flu season totally know you out? If so, you are probably thinking that your immune system could really use a boost!

You may not realize it, but research has made connections between chiropractic care and immunity!

When you see a chiropractor in Vancouver WA, part of what they are doing is dealing with problems in and around your nervous system. It might be news to you, but your nervous system and immune system are intrinsically linked.

When your nervous system detects damage or infection, its job is to employ the immune system to get to work on repairing and healing the damage.

That said, a sluggish and faulty nervous system will be as effective in alerting the immune system, giving sickness and potentially long-term illness the opportunity to reek havoc on your body.

Does Chiropractic Care Really Help Boost Immunity?

Here are just a few research studies that show a positive link between chiropractic adjustments and a strong and healthy immune system:

  • In a research study done over 5 years, those who received regular chiropractic adjustments for all 5 years had 200% increased immunity over those who did not!
  • One study that measured how enzyme level increases the body’s ability to develop resistance to a variety of illnesses showed that healthy patients had 2 times the amount of enzymes as the seriously ill patients and that those who received regular chiropractic adjustments had double the amount of those enzymes as the healthy patients.
  • One other study showed that patients who are HIV positive and received regular chiropractic adjustments had a boost in the presence of CD4 cells of 48%.

So there you have it, not only does chiropractic care help your physical and emotional woes, it helps your immunity too! Give your body an extra line of defense with regular chiropractic adjustments from a chiropractor in Vancouver WA! Contact us today!
