Happy New Year 2016 to all of our wonderful patients! This year is the year to invest in your health and wholeness!
We are also entering the thick of winter, the time when most people get sick with colds and flus, experience depression, and other health problems due to multiple factors particularly lack of sunshine, colder temperatures, dehydration, staying indoors/lack of exercise, eating poorly, etc.
Chiropractic kinesiology is one of the BEST ways to strengthen your immune system. Your immune system is what protects you against organisms of disease and sickness.
Chiropractic treatments positively effect your neurologic system, which controls much of your immune system. Chiropractic treatments aid in balancing the "flight or flight" vs. "rest/digest/heal" sides of your nervous system.
Also, when you are stressed (due to any of the stressors in the picture below!) your body increases cortisol hormone output. Cortisol is also known as the "stress hormone" and it inhibits your immune system (which is why stress can make you sick, literally!).
Research studies have proven that chiropractic adjustments reduce cortisol, and thus improve your immune system!
In addition, a series of studies published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Theraputics (JMPT) by Brennan and Triano showed that several types of immune system cells, including phagocytes, neutrophils, and PMNs, showed increased biological activity after a chiropractic adjustment. Pretty awesome.
Buffer yourself against all stresses this year with regular chiropractic kinesiology treatments to address all physical, chemical, and emotional factors affecting your health.
We look forward to an incredible 2016 here at Synergy Chiropractic!
