Cold and flu season is already getting into full-swing. From North York to Ottawa, people everywhere are stocking up on tissues, throat lozenges and vitamins. But what many individuals are forgetting to do in their haste to be prepared is schedule regular appointments with a chiropractor. After all, chiropractic care has been shown to help boost immunity naturally.
How does chiropractic help the body in this way? Think of a human like a vehicle. If all the parts are moving in tip-top shape, it’s going to be able to handle the stress of operating day-in and day-out. On the other hand, if the parts haven’t been maintained, a small problem could turn into a much larger one.
The same holds true with humans. Our bodies have all the protection they need (unless there is an extenuating circumstance, such as an underlying health condition that is affecting immunity levels); as long as they are kept in decent shape, they can fight off bacterial infections and viruses. The problem comes into play when they aren’t getting what they need. When that’s the case, the door is left wide open for colds and flus to take over.
This isn’t to suggest that you’ll never get sick again if you go to your chiropractor consistently. Part of the human condition is getting ill from time to time. Yet if your body is in alignment, it will be able to help you better resist succumbing to ailments, as well as recover faster when you get aches, pains and fevers.
Why wait until you’re completely feeling under the weather to do something for yourself? Contact your chiropractor today and set up your next visit. If you haven’t been to a chiropractor before, simply give Dr. Stan Gorchynski and his team a call at Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic. They’ll be happy to fit you in as soon as possible.
