The immune system comprises a network of cells and proteins that defend the body against infection/s. It is made up of specialized organs and chemicals that fight microorganisms, specifically those that are bacterial and can cause infection/disease. The system records every germ to recognize and destroy any microbes if they enter the body again. Abnormalities can lead to:
- Allergic diseases
- Autoimmune disorders
The Immune System
Protection from viruses and bacteria requires a long-term solution/s for building and strengthening immunity. Chiropractic adjustments, along with health coaching, can help. The main organs are:
- White blood cells
- Complement system
- Lymphatic system
- Bone marrow
The gastrointestinal tract’s health and variety of bacteria have been shown to significantly affect overall health, including immunity. When gut health is optimized, it helps the body’s natural processes for detecting and fighting microorganisms. Simple ways to strengthen gut health include:
- A healthy diet rich in a variety of whole foods and vegetables will promote diversity in the gut.
Probiotics can significantly help strengthen gastrointestinal health.
Get Out In the Sun
- Outside provides the microbiome vitamin D, which helps fight inflammation and strengthens the sense of well-being.
Nerve Signal Optimization
- The central nervous system is primary in gastrointestinal motility and overall balance. The proper spinal alignment will help blood and nerve synapse circulation.
Maintaining Body Balance
A strengthened immune system is about maintaining whole-body balance. The body is a complicated system that operates/functions in top form when tuned up and in proper alignment.
- Chiropractic can provide expert treatment to restore spinal misalignment/s. This keeps the body functioning at an optimal level.
- A moving body is a healthy body. Regular exercise will benefit the immune system and keep it strong.
A high level of stress can compromise the immune system’s health. Regular physical activity/exercise, chiropractic, and awareness of any health issues can help manage stress. Chiropractic management will help promote a healthy gastrointestinal tract, help manage stress, get in more physical activity, and stay pain-free. Chiropractic can help kick in the body’s natural immune response and keep the flow going. Call today to see how we can help build a healthy immune system.
