Boost Your Immune System with Corrective Spinal Care
Maintaining a strong and healthy immune system is vital for overall well-being and resilience against illness. While proper nutrition, exercise, and hygiene play important roles, many people may not be aware of the benefits that chiropractic care can provide to the immune system. At Corrective Spinal Care of California in Escondido we offer chiropractic services that can support and strengthen your immune system. In this article, we’ll explore how chiropractic care can benefit the immune system and promote optimal health.
Nervous System and Immune Function:
The nervous system and immune system are interconnected, and proper communication between the two is essential for a well-functioning immune response. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore and maintain proper alignment of the spine, which can improve nervous system function. By reducing interference in nerve pathways, chiropractic care promotes optimal communication between the nervous system and immune system, enhancing the body’s ability to fight off infections and illnesses.
Stress has a significant impact on immune function. Chronic stress can weaken the immune system and make individuals more susceptible to infections. Chiropractic care can help reduce stress by relieving tension and promoting relaxation. Adjustments to the spine release endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood enhancers. By reducing stress, chiropractic care supports a healthier immune system and enhances the body’s ability to defend against pathogens.
Enhanced Circulation and Lymphatic Flow:
Proper circulation and lymphatic flow are crucial for a strong immune system. Chiropractic adjustments can improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage throughout the body. By optimizing circulation, chiropractic care helps to deliver vital nutrients and oxygen to cells while removing waste products. This enhanced flow supports the immune system by providing the necessary resources for optimal immune function and aiding in the elimination of toxins.
The Results of Chiropractic During the Flu Pandemic of 1918:
 In Davenport, Iowa, 50 medical doctors treated 4,953 cases, with 274 deaths. In the same city, 150 chiropractors including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases with only one death.
In the state of Iowa, medical doctors treated 93,590 patients, with 6,116 deaths – a loss of one patient out of 15. In the same state, excluding Davenport, 4,735 patients were treated by chiropractors with a loss of only 6 cases – a loss of one patient out of every 789.
National figures show that 1, 142 chiropractors treated 46,394 patients for influenza during 1918, with a loss of 54 patients – one out of every 886.
In the same epidemic, New York health authorities (who kept records of flu as a reportable disease) showed that under chiropractic care, only 25 patients died of influenza out of every 10,000 cases; and only 100 patients died of pneumonia out of every 10,000 cases. This comparison is made more striking when viewed in the following table:
The same epidemic reports show that chiropractors in Oklahoma treated 3,490 cases of influenza with only 7 deaths. But the best part of this is, in Oklahoma there is a clear record showing that chiropractors were called in 233 cases where medical doctors had cared for the patients, and finally gave them up as lost. The chiropractors saved all these lost cases but 25.
