Today we learn about alternatives to the flu shot.
As this is the time of year when you may be pressured into getting the flu shot, and I am not telling you not to get the flu shot, I would like to tell you how chiropractic care can be a natural, healthy and safe alternative for you and your children.
I could tell you about the countless cases of excellent immunity I have seen in my own practice members over the past 30 years, but what does the research have to say about this?
We already know that chiropractic adjustments and good posture regulate your nerve system which controls everything in your body including your immune system.
And, researchers in New York found that people who received chiropractic care for more than 5 years had 200% greater immune function than non-chiropractic patients.
Another study measured a 48% increase in CD4 cells in HIV patients who received chiropractic care for 6 months compared to an 8% decrease in the control group (no chiro care) over the same period of time.
CD4 cells are found in your blood and play a major role in protecting your body against infection.
Another study demonstrated enhanced white blood cell activity with chiropractic care.
These too protect your body against infection.
So, if you eat reasonably healthy food, practice good personal hygiene, get adequate exercise and keep your nerve system functioning at top notch, the flu will not be a dangerous threat to you or your children.
And as always, no shots equals no potential side-effects.
If you have any questions on this topic or any other health concerns you may have or your kids may have, please give me a call.
Consultations and posture checks are always free of charge in our office and family appointments are also available.
