Healthy Ways To Strengthen Your Immune SystemDecember 5, 2020
Some people may think of chiropractic care only in terms of back and neck pain. However, the benefits extend beyond that, including improved immune function.
Healthy Ways To Strengthen Your Immune System
Our body is run by electrical impulses generated from nerves that run through our spinal column and then out to every organ and muscle. If the spine is not aligned properly, the nerve function is compromised. It is similar to faulty wiring in an appliance. When our nerves are properly aligned and functioning optimally, all of our systems work better. These include the immune system, respiratory system, circulatory system, digestion system and endocrine system, just to name a few. Many patients seek chiropractic care to boost immunity. Many factors affecting our health are in our control, while others are not. Viruses and bacteria are abundant, which is a fact we can’t change. We can, however, improve our body’s ability to fight them off with healthy lifestyle choices. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:
• Don’t vape or smoke.
• Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
• Exercise regularly.
• Maintain a healthy weight.
• If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
• Get adequate sleep.
• Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently.
• Try to minimize stress.
• Get adjusted regularly
