Your Weak Immune System May Need Chiropractic Attention

Elderly patient with Geriatric

If you suffer from a weak immune system, you may be wondering what steps you can take to improve your health outlook and live a more satisfying, fulfilling life. What you may not know, is seeking chiropractic care could help stimulate your immune system and avoid uncomfortable illnesses and communicable viruses. How? It has to do with your body’s central nervous system, which ties into natural immunity.

The human immune system fights off infectious organisms, which include viruses and some bacteria. When an immune system isn’t as healthy as it should be, it’s susceptible to sustaining a number of infections, ranging from the common cold to more serious diseases and flus.

If you find you’re becoming repeatedly ill, it could be a sign that your immune system is no longer operating at its peak. If this is the case, seek the help of a qualified healthcare professional as soon as possible. If you’re in the San Francisco, CA or Denver, CO areas, a visit to Posture Works might be something to think about!

Common immune system problems

There are a number of problems that can compromise the human immune system. Sometimes, it’s just a lack of proper diet and exercise that leaves you vulnerable; other times, it’s a more serious issue.

  • The most dangerous type of immune system-related issue is an auto-immune disorder. This type of disorder causes the immune system to attack itself, because it views itself as a threat. It can range from something as innocuous as a skin condition like psoriasis, to something as dramatic as AIDS.
  • Cancer is another disease known to cause immune compromise. In addition to the damage caused by the disease itself, cancer treatments, including chemo therapy, cause substantial damage to the human immune system.
  • Immunodeficiency is caused by genetic conditions. If you suffer from immunodeficiency, your body may be able to fight off some infections, but not others, depending on their nature
  • Some immune systems may react overzealously to allergens, causing a compromised immune system that could cause you to become sick more frequently than you should.

If you notice you’re becoming sick more often than you should be, it’s probably a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider to learn more about potential treatment options. Sometimes, something you didn’t consider (like chiropractic) could assist you in overcoming your immune system issues.

Treating immunity issues

There are a number of steps that people with compromised immune systems can take to boost their health. For instance, vitamin C is a powerful tool you can incorporate into your diet to help overcome some level of immunodeficiency. Other lifestyle changes, like quitting smoking, exercising regularly, and eating more vegetables, can also help improve your immune system’s overall health.

Additionally, seeking chiropractic care can help stimulate the human immune system and elevate overall bodily health. The spinal column is directly tied to the health of the immune system; when the spine is healthy, the immune system is much more likely to be in good condition. This includes better blood flow throughout the body, better nerve health, and less inflammation.
