Bee Cave Chiropractor Discusses How to Avoid the Flu Without Getting the Flu Shot
It’s that time of year again; Doctors & Minute Clinics will urge their patients & visitors to get in line for a flu vaccine. Some people are quick to roll up their sleeves and receive a small dose of the flu virus into their body hoping to avoid disease, while others are apprehensive and want to know “Is there any other way to prevent the flu?” The answer is yes. There are many ways to prevent the flu that do not involve vaccinations and one of the best preventatives is chiropractic care.
For centuries, chiropractic care has been shown to strengthen the immune system, and allow the body’s own defense mechanism to fight diseases. During the 1918 flu pandemic for example, millions of people lost their lives to the H1N1 influenza virus. Data gathered a few months later pointed to one interesting statistic; those who sought chiropractic care had a dramatically lesser chance of becoming sick, staying sick, or dying from the flu than those treated medically. Check out this article from Dr. Joseph Mercola.
Why does chiropractic care work?
The nervous system is responsible for every function in the body; from blinking, breathing, digestion and walking, to healing injuries and fighting disease. Therefore any misalignment in the spine will put unnecessary and dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves, causing nerve interference. Without proper nerve energy, the body becomes weak, diseased, and prone to illness.
Corrective chiropractic care through a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® aims to realign the spine back to its optimal shape, eliminating nerve interference, and promoting healthy nerve flow back to the limbs and organs. The result is a much stronger immune system, healthier organ function, renewed sense of health and wellness, and of course an end to back and neck pain.
