Boost your Immune System with Chiropractic Care
And today helpful learn how to best protect yourself and your family from the seasonal flu and h1n1, Doctor Austin Cohen with the Cohen Chiropractic Center. Good afternoon doctor, great thanks for having me.
Let’s start with shattering a myth about how we catch the flu and about germs,
Dr. Cohen says, Absolutely and many people have that perception that germs are the single cause the disease and if that were the case then everyone has sick everyone have the flu because germs are everywhere, so it’s more important than germs is our body’s ability to fight off infection adapt to the environment and regulate the immune system.
Now how can we do that, well there’s one system that controls the immune system and that’s our nervous system which I brought this Spine as a model and partner systems composed of our brain, which appear are spinal courtney’s delicate nerves that control and coordinate every function in our body. And there’s a condition out there known as vertebral subluxation which is when the spine this alliance and it puts pressure on these nerves not allow for proper communication from the brain down the spinal cord now to the rest their body and this decrease our body’s ability to a fight off infection and regulate the immune system.
Now how often what I need to have this look at and have my spine adjusted in order to keep my body’s immune system healthy, and the first thing we tell people is you want to first check to see even if you are can 24 chiropractic care and there’s a couple ways that people can find out if they are candice for
chiropractic care and there’s two test they can do:
Whenever wanna they can check the movement movement is life and the more movie we have in our body the stronger are nervous system, will be and of course our new system and what people can do they can turn to head to
the left, turn their head to the right.
If they moved equally then that’s a good sign however one side moves more than the other then that’s a bad sign they may want to get checked further from a chiropractor and also you can also check your posture you want to close your eyes and have someone look at you see. If one shorter time the other if one has tilted to one side compared to the other and that’s a great indicator cuz posture the window to respond and how our posture looks that’s pretty much how our spinal a point taken a trip to watch the perfectly straight.
