Flu season is here and it seems to be particularly potent this year. The best way to avoid the flu is to have a strong immune system… and the best way to have a strong immune system is to have regular visits to your Chiropractor.
My Doctor said to get a Flu Shot
General Practitioners, or GP’s, will tell you to get the Flu shot to avoid the flu. Many people, including those who have been vaccinated, still get the flu. Why? There are many reasons but they all stem from a poorly functioning immune system.
I take Echinacea and tons of Vitamin C to boost my immune system
That’s great! However, your body can only use a certain amount of the vitamins you’re feeding it. Once it has reached what it needs, your body excretes the remainder so no amount of “doubling up” will really benefit your immune system.
Why is going to the Chiropractor the best way to defend against the Flu?
Every time you get an adjustment from your Chiropractor, you’re getting a boost to your immune system. This happens because reducing subluxation allows the central nervous system to work efficiently. Since the central nervous system is the foundation for communication and function within your body, any interruption in that system can cause greater problems. Not just pain. A lack of communication between your systems can allow an opening for a virus to come in and invade. Think of it as a computer virus. When your computer is protected and its core processor (the central nervous system) is running smoothly, applications run faster and you can work on multiple projects at once without the processor slowing down. However, the minute you open that strange looking email (virus) everything crashes. The keyboard doesn’t talk to your monitor, you cannot get files you need and you may even be subject to fried nerve endings. That’s when we have to bring in a specialist to clean up our hard drive and get us back into working order. When you have regular visits to your chiropractor, you are getting rid of all unwanted viruses and spam. You are allowing your systems to operate smoothly without interruptions and gives a needed boost to your immune system, letting it know that all functions are performing at optimum levels. So the next time you think about boosting your immunity, think about seeing your Chiropractor.
