Boosting The Immune System: Family First Chiropractic

Posted by Dr. Dawn Bortoluzzi B.Sc, D.C. on Friday, September 25, 2015

The immune system is your body's way of defending itself against the outside world.  It is a complicated network of structures and biologically adaptive processes that keep you healthy. The immune system is arguable the most important system in the human body, since it defends each and everyone of it's complicated systems.

However, sometimes the immune system encounters a problem by either being too weak or by functioning in a manner that is the opposite of what is desired; For example, you may be more likely to get a cold or even suffer from allergies. A weak immune system can be caused by:

  • Not Drinking Enough Water   
  • Not Sleeping   
  • Stress   
  • Overactive Lifestyle
  • Consuming Drugs and Alcohol   
  • Lack of Exercise

Taking steps to improve your immune system becomes an important part of your everyday life. While taking steps to prevent the above is a good way to start, there are other methods to improve the state of your immune system and turn yourself into a much healthier person.

Chiropractic has been linked to improved immune system since its inception. Since chiropractic treats every facet of the human body, the fact that it affects the immune system in a positive manner is to be expected. Chiropractic has been seen to reduce the severity of allergies while also significantly lowering the rate at which a person suffers from a cold. those who practice chiropractic have also seen the adoption of a much healthier lifestyle which by definition strengthens the immune system and the rest of the human body.
