Your Body's Autonomic Nervous System Needs Help




It is the responsibility of your immune system to protect your body from toxins and foreign substances that may cause harm.

Many limit chiropractic care as only caring for the body’s

structural system­ your bones. However, did you know it can play a vital part in boosting the

body’s immune system?

It is now a well­known fact that Chiropractic adjustments help the body to keep the Autonomic

Nervous System (ANS). The ANS controls the entire nervous system, including the brain,

nerves and the spinal cord. Many researchers believe that chiropractic care has a way of

“communicating” with immune tissues and the endocrine directly, signaling them to modulate

the chemical reactions that keep us healthy.

Subluxation

Subluxation is the term used in reference to the misalignment of the spine. The condition is best

known for causing compression and for irritating nerve pathways that in turn affect the body’s

organ systems. Subluxation is a prime example of the physical nerve stress affecting neuronal

control. Stressful conditions have time and again proven to alter one’s immune function, leaving

the person more susceptible to a broad range of diseases.

Experienced chiropractors know how to analyze the spinal cord for subluxation. They are also

trained to give corrective measures that not only help to align the spine but can as well help you

to curb stress and keep the nervous system stay in shape.

The brain has to communicate with the nervous system during an immune response so that the

immune system can be able to function at 100%. Each time the immune system fails to function

at full potential, the body becomes vulnerable to viruses, bacteria and all sorts of illness.

However, with the subluxation removed (through chiropractic manipulation), the brain can

effectively communicate with the nervous system, thus paving way for a nearly 100% immune

response.

Research

In the 1970’s, research by Dr. Ronald Pero at New York’s Preventative Medicine Institute

measured over 100 patients who had received long­term chiropractic care. The studies

concluded that patients receiving the care were shown to have a 200% greater immune

competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and a 400% greater immune

competence than people with cancer, or other serious diseases.
