It’s that time of year when everyone’s allergies are hitting them in full force. I have seen many people with terrible congestion, sinus pressure, and sinus headaches. Often we will get calls from patients saying that they’re not feeling well and want to cancel their appointment. What many people don’t know is that it is actually VERY beneficial for you to get adjusted when you don’t feel well!
All of the nerves that help supply and regulate your immune system come from your upper neck. Misalignments and subluxations in your neck will interfere with the message your brain is trying to send to your immune system. An adjustment will remove that interference between the two and get your brain talking to your immune system again! Research has shown that an adjustment will release 200-400x more immune cells!!
If you’re suffering from allergies or a cold, vitamin D is a fantastic supplement to help boost your immune system as well. Being proactive now by taking or increasing your vitamin D can help protect yourself this winter and help you avoid colds and the flu.
Next time you’re not feeling well or your allergies are flared up, make sure you get adjusted ASAP to boost that immune system!
