Whether we like it or not … the cold and flu season is upon us. Typical symptoms of the flu are often accompanied by backache, fever, a runny nose, fatigue, dry cough, congestion, insomnia, constipation and muscle soreness. Many people may take over-the-counter drugs that mask the symptoms which can interfere with the body’s natural defense against the flu. Unfortunately, taking drugs can come with other side effects and suppress the body’s immune system.
Your nerve system controls and regulates your immune system. It’s important to keep your body’s immune system working optimally. However, if you’re fighting the cold and flu your immune system may not be functioning at its best, which means neither is your nerve system.
Our approach to the cold and flu at Gucciardo Specific Chiropractic and Natural Health Center does not involve prescribing drugs or antibiotics. Rather, we’ve been helping people of all ages fight the flu, maintain a healthy and balanced body by ensuring that your first line of defense, your nerve system, is working well.
Are you fighting the flu? Since the flu is kicking butt this season … Why not kick back with Chiropractic Care? Chiropractic Care doesn’t cure the flu, rather it looks at the entire body and focuses on your nerve system as the source of defense and healing. It can also help increase the body’s natural resistance against the common cold and flu which your body is already equipped to defend.
When there’s a subluxation in the body it can interfere with proper nerve flow and lower your immune system. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment in the spinal column involving the first two bones in the neck. Subluxations can decrease nerve function potential which in turn decreases the immune function. and immune function. Dr. Gucciardo can help find the subluxation, remove and correct it with a specific spinal adjustment which is safe, natural, and non-invasive. Isn’t that great!
When you have a healthy spine free of subluxations your nerve and immune system can function at its greatest potential. With regular chiropractic adjustments it promotes proper nerve flow which increases your body’s natural resistance to fight the cold and flu.
It’s extremely important to keep your nerve and immune system healthy and functioning optimally.
