Like it or not, winter is upon us here in Toronto, and that means we’re all more likely to come down with what is referred to as the “common” cold. In general, this means fatigue, sneezing, aches, a low-grade fever, runny nose, sore throat and stuffy head. While there are certainly plenty of over-the-counter remedies that claim to take care of a cold’s symptoms, many individuals are looking for homeopathic and natural ways to avoid getting colds at all. Among those methods is chiropractic care.
Chiropractic treatment by a licensed professional such as Dr. Gorchynski at Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic is beginning to be valued in a new way by plenty of men, women and their children as they attempt to combat the common cold. Along with keeping their hands clean and avoiding passing germs to one another, chiropractic care can be a terrific alternative to popping pills. Not only is it non-toxic, but it has no contraindications with any known medicines or homeopathic remedies. This means it’s suitable for all ages.
The way chiropractic care works to provide less opportunity for the common cold to take hold is by improving the body’s natural immune system. When the body is aligned using the chiropractic treatment methodology known as the activator method, the body is not left fighting itself to attain the best possible health. Thus, when it comes in contact with bacteria that can lead to colds, it is able to fight the bacteria.
Even if a cold does strike, chiropractic care can lessen the duration of the problem. Who wouldn’t want to spend less time sneezing and curling up in bed, and more time doing what he or she wants to do?
