Coming in to meet with your Chiropractor is much more conducive to achieving positive health than staying at home.

Consider the following information that explains why you should receive a Chiropractic Adjustment if you are sick with the cold or flu.

Cold or Flu Relief with Chiropractic Care

Your nervous system is directly connected to your immune system.

The nervous system consists of your brain stem and spinal cord; both are responsible for controlling and regulating all bodily functions.

A healthy spine is critical for your nervous system to be able to operate correctly. Therefore, receiving a Chiropractic Adjustment while you are sick provides a boost to your immune system that allows your white blood cells to fend off harmful bacteria and viruses.

Chiropractic Care Stimulates Your Body’s Natural Defense Mechanisms

Although common symptoms associated with the cold or flu are unpleasant, they serve as indicators that your immune system is working correctly.

Experiencing a mild fever, glassy eyes, a loss of appetite, or a runny nose all speaks to your body’s natural defense mechanisms.

In fact, when you experience:

  • A runny nose – This helps drive harmful viruses and organisms out of your body
  • A mild fever – This is your body’s way of stimulating your immune system, while also creating an environment that is not conducive for viruses and bacteria
  • Water eyes – This allows your corneas to cool down so that their heat-sensitive proteins are not damaged by your fever.
  • A sudden loss of appetite – This signals that your body is trying to redirect energy from your digestive cycles to your immune system.

Your body is naturally designed to kill off serious illnesses, and the type of symptoms you experience are indicators that your body is in a particular degree of stress.

Chiropractic Adjustments support your body’s natural ability to heal itself because of how effective they are for removing various interferences from your internal systems.

When barriers such as subluxations exist within your spine, your nervous system is unable to effectively communicate with your immune system and your white blood cells are not able to combat foreign threats.
