Natural Cold Prevention

Dan Wood - Friday, October 11, 2013

Most people think that cold weather is the causes colds. This is actually a myth. Colds are caused by lowered immune response and because most viruses survive better in low humidity.

Our doctors at Spinal Health Professionals can help you boost your immune system and give you helpful hints to ward off these pesky colds.

Chiropractic care can help boost your body's immune system. Since the spinal cord contains many nerves that carry signals throughout the body, the slightest misalignment of your vertebrae (vertebral subluxation) can affect adjacent nerves slowing the immune system response. Thus, causing your body to be more prone to infections. Chiropractic adjustments move your spine back into alignment and allow your nerves to function properly.

Chiropractic care along with good sleep, eating well and the right amount of exercise will help fight off those annoying colds. For more information on how to stay health during this beautiful Bemidji fall, stop by Spinal Health Professionals today.
