Fighting Through the Flu Season

The flu virus is particularly crafty, constantly adapting to survive and becoming stronger each year. As a result, people are experiencing more severe flu symptoms.

The Role of Chiropractic Care in Boosting Immunity

Maintaining a healthy immune system is crucial; chiropractic care can significantly support and enhance immunity. Recent research has revealed that 70% of our immune system resides in our gut. Unfortunately, many individuals have poor diets that don’t provide the necessary nutrients for optimal immune function.

To combat this, Dr. Denn recommends supplementing with vitamins D, E, and zinc, along with vitamin C, if desired. By nourishing our bodies with these essential nutrients, we can strengthen our immune response and improve our ability to fight off viruses like the flu.

Regular Chiropractic Maintenance for Immune Support

Regular chiropractic care addresses specific health concerns, overall wellness, and immune support. By scheduling periodic wellness check-ups, patients can ensure that their bodies align and function optimally.

During chiropractic visits, key areas to focus on include the mid-back region (T5-T9), which plays a significant role in stomach function, and the uppermost bone in the neck, known as the Atlas. The Atlas controls various bodily functions, including the vagal nerve, which supplies essential functions to the stomach. When these areas are properly aligned, the body can adapt to microorganisms and viruses.

It’s important to remember that our bodies have incredible self-healing capabilities. With the right support and ensuring proper alignment, our bodies can effectively combat the flu and other illnesses.

Incorporate Chiropractic in Your Wellness Arsenal

While the flu season can’t be avoided, you can fight back by keeping your immune system elevated with the help of chiropractic care, nutrition, supplementation, and exercise.
