Sickness Chiropractic Care and the Immune System

Research from Dynamic Chiropractic shows strong evidence for boosting your immune system.  This reduces sickness and illness.  Come on, Doc, how in the world can chiropractic care help my immune system?  After all, medicine tells us that chiropractic is only good for back and neck pain.  I mean, how could it possibly help with sickness?   However, did you know that the most recent research shows otherwise?  In fact, the research shows that spinal adjustments show promise for many non-pain conditions.  Of course, this includes sickness.  Additionally, these studies also show how chiropractic helps your immune system.  Well, let’s start with sickness.  We’ll cover allergies in a future article.

The Research

Actually, research way back in the 1990s sparked the need for more recent papers.  In fact, Brennan, et al, published a paper showing that upper thoracic adjustments resulted in improved immune activity.  Specifically, it improved the number of cells your immune system makes to fight off bacteria.  However, in a second study, the same author showed that spinal adjustments increased CD4 T-cell counts.  These cells are a vital part of your immune system.  In fact, they initiate your body’s response to kill viruses.  Surprisingly, this includes boosting immune function in people who are HIV-positive.  Actually, their T-cell counts improved by an astonishing 48 percent over six-months.  Six months was the duration of the study.  Additional studies even show that adjustments reduce inflammation in your body.  And this chronic swelling can lead to sickness.

How Chiropractic Helps

So, how does chiropractic keep you from getting sick?  In order to answer that question, let me first ask another question.  What part of your body controls your immune system?  You guessed it, it’s your brain.  Your brain talks to your immune system via nerves that exit the spine.  Any misalignment in your spine can hinder the communication of those vital nerves.  The intrusion can be indirect, coming from twisted muscles, ligaments, tendons or cartilage.  However, direct interference, while less common, can also play a role.  This would mean nerve pressure caused directly from the spinal bones.

In fact, we can help your immune system work properly with several ways.  First, chiropractic care can take pressure off of the vital nerves that control your body’s defense system.  Second, the right dietary changes can help lower inflammation and boost your immune system.  Lastly, enzyme nutrition supplements help your immune system use nutrition properly.  Of course, we only make recommendations after thorough testing.  Furthermore, this testing is based on sound medical principles.

Have the Flu? The vaccine didn’t work? Try Quercetin & Enzymes

Have the Flu? Try Quercetin & Enzymes.  Did you know that in 2017/2018 the flu vaccine was only 32% effective?  In fact, each year the flu vaccine works less and less.  However, there are steps you can take to help your body properly combat the flu.

Flu vaccine alternatives.  So, how in the world can the flu vaccine only help 32% of the time?  By the way, this information comes straight from the CDC’s Web Site.  As it turns out, vaccine’s ability to prevent the flu gets weaker and weaker each year.  Additionally, the safety of this and other vaccines is highly questionable.  However, there are things you can do to support healthy immune function.  If your immune system is healthy, you may not get the flu.

Quercetin is a naturally occurring plant pigment, or color.  In fact, you can find it in green tea, onions, apples, berries, Ginkgo biloba, St. John’s wort, American elder, and others. Buckwheat tea also has a large amount of quercetin. You may know buckwheat tea by its Japanese name, “mugicha”.

How Quercetin Works

So, how exactly does this plant pigment help?  If quercetin can penetrate a flu-infected cell, it can stop several key processes that stop the flu from duplicating.  First, it can stop the virus from copying its own genes.  However, even if the flu virus successfully copies its genes, quercetin can help prevent those genes from replacing the cells own genes.  Since this is how the virus multiplies, quercetin essentially keeps the virus from spreading.

How Enzymes Help

If quercetin does such a great job, how in the world do enzymes help?  When the flu takes over your cells, the first thing it does is “fortify”.  In fact, the flu virus accomplishes these two ways.  First, the flu virus closes off the cell wall.  The cell wall is normally selectively open to allow food to enter and waste to leave.  After the flu virus closes off the cell, it builds a protein shield around the cell wall. Why would the virus do this?  To prevent your immune system, and quercetin from getting in.  The virus basically fortifies its castle walls.

The right enzymes, however, can help your body destroy this protein wall.  Yet other enzymes can help re-open the cell wall.  Once the cell wall is open, your immune system can penetrate the cell and do its job.  Of course, quercetin can help.  In a nut shell, enzymes help your immune system properly penetrate infected cells.  This helps your body combat the flu.  On top of that, study after study shows that people under regular chiropractic care get sick less often and stay sick for a shorter time period.
