Building a Strong Immune System
Keep Your Immune System Strong
Your immune system works hard in the background to keep you safe and healthy. Especially as we head into the flu season and tackle widespread and highly contagious conditions like the coronavirus, your immune system is integral to your overall health and wellbeing. However, if you want your immune system to function at its best, you must do your best to keep it strong and healthy.
Exercising, eating right, taking steps to lower stress, and frequent chiropractic care are a few of the ways you can boost your immune system and lower your chances of disease and infection. At Salud Chiropractic in Rohnert Park, CA, we provide chiropractic care, key nutrients and vitamins, and other services that help boost your immune system and keep you healthy. Call us today to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor, Dr. Angelica Farrell.
What Does the Immune System Do?
The main function of the immune system is to protect the body from harmful substances, like infections, parasites, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. If these harmful elements do enter the body, the immune system does its best to fight them off and eliminate them. Once your immune system encounters a germ, it keeps information about that germ stored so it can fight it more efficiently if it encounters it again. Your immune system also fights cells in your body that become harmful, like those that cause cancer.
Most of the time, your immune system works well, so it can be easy to forget that it’s there. However, when your immune system fails, it’s obvious – you become sick. The best time to build your immune system is when you are healthy so you can help prevent sickness in the first place.
Chiropractic Can Boost Your Immune System
Studies have shown that frequent chiropractic care can help boost your immune system. Chiropractors are primarily focused on optimizing the nervous system, which is crucial to the operation of the immune system. The nervous system helps the immune system communicate with the brain so it can develop an appropriate response to threats identified by the immune system. Chiropractic clients often report improved immune responses and faster recovery times after visiting a chiropractor.
