Dr Brad Ivanchuk here and I am a Chiropractor, Certified Posture Expert and a Certified Postural Neurologist at Life Chiropractic Centre located in Burlington, Ontario on Guelph Line.
This is the time of year when you are going to get a lot of pressure to have your family vaccinated for the flu. This pressure will come from your family doc, the pharmacist, radio commercials, TV commercials and maybe even your friends and family.
And if you are concerned about all the junk and toxins that are being injected into your body and your kid’s bodies – and you very well should be – then let me offer you a natural alternative to fighting colds and the flu.
Remember that your immune system is your primary defense against infection.
It has several strategies to protect you against infection; your mucous membranes, your gut (digestive system) and fevers. These weapons are highly effective in warding off intruders as long as they are working properly.
And this is the thing … the best way to keep your immune system working properly is to ensure that your nervous system is communicating precisely with your immune system so that your immune system knows exactly what to do when it is being challenged. Recent studies have shown that there is a direct connection between your nervous system and your immune system.
Maintaining an open, upright and erect posture will allow your nervous system to function at optimal potential and thus your immune system will function at optimal potential as well.
This is where your chiropractic care is so very important. Decades of studies and observation have shown that people who get regular chiropractic care and maintain a healthy posture have significantly stronger immunity that those who do not.
Other things that you can do to support your immune system during cold and flu season are vitamin D3 drops, probiotics, eating more vitamin C enriched foods (oranges, grapefruit, kale, spinach etc.) and of course regular exercise is always a must.
If you have any questions on this topic or any other health concerns you or your kids may have, please call me.
Consultations in our office are always free of charge and these include a detailed postural analysis.
