With cold and flu season sneaking up upon us here in Tennessee you might be asking yourself what you can do to avoid a cold naturally. The chiropractic cold remedy is a wonderful all-natural cold prevention choice. So much time, research, and medication have gone into cold prevention and cures. Unfortunately like all other medicines on the market, including the flu shot, receiving chiropractic care can’t guarantee that you won’t get a cold.

The good news though is that the chiropractic cold remedy, in other words getting a chiropractic adjustment, can be a helpful step in cold prevention and a great way to avoid a cold naturally with out medication!

Having a healthy immune system that can fight off the cold and flu virus is vital to keep from getting sick. We put so much effort everyday into strengthening our immune system: taking vitamins, eating healthy, and washing our hands often to avoid germs. Proper nutrition, exercise, and sleeping enough all play a big part in keeping your body healthy. We do so much to avoid getting sick. Why not go the extra mile and build an even stronger immune system by getting adjusted.

How Chiropractic Helps You Avoid a Cold Naturally :

Our body’s immune system is responsible for keeping us safe from all things icky and gross, such as bacteria and viruses. If our immune system becomes compromised or weakened we are left more susceptible to sickness and colds.

How does chiropractic care affect our immune system you ask? Research has shown a connection between the health of the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain and spinal cord, and the health of the immune system. When either of the systems is weakened it directly affects the strength of the other.

Once you understand that the health of the immune system and the central nervous system are related it is easy to see why chiropractic care may be used as a prevention tool against colds.

When subluxations, or misalignments of the vertebrae in the spine, are present the central nervous system is not able to perform as nature planned. Subluxations lead to nerve interference and irritation. Nature intends for nerve impulses to move unobstructed from the brain to the organs and extremities in a never ending cycle. Whenever these nerve impulses become blocked health issues arise.

Chiropractic adjustments to the spine can correct subluxations affecting your nervous system. This will allow for better communication within your body, a healthier central nervous systems which leads to a stronger immune system and therefore greater overall health.

While receiving chiropractic adjustments may not guarantee that your body wins the fight and stays cold free this winter season, it definitely heightens your immune system’s chances for a win.
