Improve Immune System Function with Chiropractic

This winter season may have had you lying around in bed with an irritating head cold or missing work due to a stomach bug.  Sickness can’t always be avoided, but with regular visits to a John’s Creek chiropractor, the frequency of illness can be drastically reduced.  The immune system is responsible for fighting off sickness and disease.  The stronger your immune system, the easier it is to avoid sickness altogether.  The central nervous system controls how different systems in the body function, including the immune system.  Whether you realize it or not, improving your spinal health with chiropractic is incredibly beneficial for also improving your immune system, and this applies to both children and adults alike.  If sickness has affected you this winter, John’s Creek chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja wants to help build up your ability to fight back.

The Correlation Between Spinal Health and the Immune System

The central nervous system, made up of the brain and spinal cord, is responsible for sending and receiving messages throughout the body.  Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that disrupts this communication.  When messages can’t get through, the body can’t function as it should.  For instance, when sickness invades the body, nerve communication can alert the immune system to increase white blood cell production or release antibodies to fight off infection.  When spinal misalignments block these messages from getting to where they need to go, immune system function goes down and the body is more susceptible to longer, more severe, and more frequent illnesses.

Chiropractic Adjustments Remove Nerve Interference

If you are ready to say goodbye to sickness and hello to health, then turn to John’s Creek chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja.  Gentle chiropractic adjustments by Dr. Widjaja will remove spinal misalignments and reduce nerve interference so the body can function at optimal levels of health.  Your body will be better equipped to fight off viruses and infections so that you can stay healthy and productive all year long.

Chiropractic Is Directly Linked to Better Immune Health

The correlation between chiropractic care and increased antibodies to fight off illness is so strong that case studies have proven the effectiveness of chiropractic care over and over again.  One case study looked at 650 children who suffered from chronic illnesses and poor immune system function.  After just three months of chiropractic care, the health of all the children improved significantly.  Another case study focused on two young boys with HIV who experienced severe vomiting, an inability to walk, and a low immune system.  After being under regular chiropractic care, both boys were able to keep down food without vomiting as well as walk on their own without help from others.  The study also found that their viral load decreased drastically.
