‘Tis the season that people are most aware that a strong immune system is vital to living and enjoying a great quality of life. This is especially true if you’re one of the unfortunate ones whose immune system has been depressed enough to experience symptoms of sickness completely taking you out of your normal, happy and productive lifestyle.

    Whether it’s the extreme climate conditions, increased intake of dietary sugar, or just the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we are constantly in a health environment that stresses your immune system during winter and the Holiday Season.

How would you like to upgrade your immune system naturally? Doesn’t that sound better for your overall health than having to take drugs every time your immune system is compromised?

     Recent studies have shown that NeuroStructural Shift occurring in the middle of the spine, called the thoracic spine, will negatively affect the function of the spleen causing a downregulation of splenic Bcell activity and lowering serum immunoglobin M levels. The spleen is an important immune organ and receives nerve control to function from the nerves branching off of the spinal cord at the thoracic structural level area of the spine (T6-T10). Immunoglobin M (IgM) is an antibody produced by the spleen in response to antigens being present in the body.
How this study relates to chiropractic is it showed that participants in the research that had spinal (chiropractic) adjustments in the T6-T10 spinal region had a statistically significant increase in serum IgM levels than did the control group. The research also showed that these levels were increased still several days afterwards.

     What this means for you is the research shows that if NeuroStructural Shift is suppressing your immune system, its function can be restored by a NeuroStructural Corrrective adjustment. This will naturally upgrade the function of your immune system so that you will be more capable of fighting different types of bacteria, viruses, etc. Put simply, NeuroStructural Chiropractic patients have fewer colds and flu episodes.

     NeuroStructural Chiropractic care more than just a treatment of secondary conditions such as neck pain, back pain, and headaches. In my office we help you gain a better understanding of how your body works and how restoring the NeuroStructural integrity of your body, optimizes your health.
