Have you considered a Vitamin D supplement? This vitamin (actually a hormone in disguise) has benefits including;
Whether you don't get enough sun or don't get enough Vitamin D from your diet, a supplement might benefit you. With the current COVID pandemic and restrictions we face it is more important than ever to keep our immune system functioning as well as possible. Many people are noticing increased stress levels. Please speak to your chiro at your next visit about whether you should have your levels checked and supplement vitamin D.
And remember, another great way to boost your innate immune system is chiropractic care. A healthy spine and nervous system creates a healthier body overall which in turn boosts your immunity. As we say ‘Adjust your Spine, Adjust your Life’.
We look forward to seeing you soon
*“Vitamin D influences the production of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, all of which are key brain substances involved in the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and addiction.” Excerpt From: James Dowd, MD. “The Vitamin D Cure, Revised.”
**Research indicates that vitamin D plays a role in shutting down pro-inflammatory responses in your body as well as up regulating antimicrobial proteins (AMP’s) in immune cells- [the part of the immune system that immediately attacks and kills viruses, bacteria, and fungi – the branch of the immune system responsible for fighting colds and flu].” (Nature Immunology, (Vitamin D controls T cell antigen receptor signaling and activation of human T cells ) 10.1038/ni.1851).
Well in cooking if you don’t use the right ingredients you will not get a good outcome and our body is exactly the same. To put it simply your brain and nervous system control how your body works.
Symptoms are signs that your body isn’t working correctly.
Physical, chemical or emotional stresses produce a defensive body response.
Muscles contract, locking spinal joints. These areas inflame and aggravate the nerves, which in turn creates discomfort
This can be a precursor for ill health and disease
A thorough examination helps your chiropractor find these areas of what we call vertebral subluxations.
They then apply a precise movement to the dysfunctional spinal joints which allows the body correct itself.
Health usually returns as repeated visits restore spinal and nervous system integrity.
Making healthy choices to eat well, be fit and think well build on this just like using the proper ingredients in cooking.
To put it simply that is why chiropractic care helps so many people to get well and stay well through improved function of your spine and nervous system.
Have you booked your next spinal appointment to allow us to help you to care for yourself.
Your muscles are motors and need clean fuel to function efficiently. Your spinal muscles never switch off, mainly functioning without your conscious control and they require a lot of oxygen, glucose and nutrients such as iron and magnesium.
So if your world is chronically demanding and your system is chronically overactive then guess what? You are correct, you run out of fuel and the muscles fatigue, spasm/ cramp and the vertebra they attach to become dysfunctional.
After a period of time, in fact within hours these vertebral joints begin to fail and begin a process of losing function. As chiropractors our emphasis is on restoring function to these joints by very specific techniques. Beyond restoration we inform our patients of their responsibilities with regard to the factors that may have led to the often symptomatic state which can be pain but is often decreased movement along with poor feedback to your brain, which may lead to aches and pains, headache, migraine, various tremors, coordination and balance issues along with altered eye movements and compromised posturing.
Our job here is huge and we do not ‘fix ‘spines we simply assist in the management of your overall functionality as a human by improving the function of your spine. We do this by assessment of your lifestyle, correction of misaligned and poorly functioning spinal segments and offering you advice with regard to helping yourself.
Just like a dentist deals with a mouthful of teeth that occasionally fail, we are doing the same with your spine. The world is increasingly more demanding and our lifestyles are generally less than adequate for even reasonable health let alone optimum health. We score each of the following out of 10, sleep, water intake, quality and timing of food, stressors such as work especially the posture of seated work, relationships, time out for exercise, meditation and joyful experiences. By personally keeping an eye on these factors you can make small changes that are sustainable and will improve your overall health, so keep an eye on these lifestyle factors and make sustained efforts to improve them.
Our slogan is ‘adjust your spine....adjust your life.
We invite you to become a better you!
