It is officially flu season. Advertisements for flu shots are all around us - at the grocery store, pharmacy, and even the airport! For those who are looking for a natural treatment for the flu this winter, chiropractic may be the answer. Check out this video about how adult and pediatric chiropractic care can help boost the immune system.
Many people believe that germs are the cause of the flu and sickness. However, if this were true, we would all be sick because germs are all around us. There must be something different about those people who do get sick. And this is a weakened immune system. Your immune system is responsible for fighting the germs that are all around us.
The system that controls the immune system is the nervous system. The nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves. The nerve system is protected by the spine. When there are misalignments or improper motion in the spine, the nerve system will not work properly. If the part of the nerve system that controls the immune system is affected, the immune system will not function at is best. This leaves you susceptible to the flu.
Drs. Quintin and Katie Sleigh are specialists in finding and eliminating the improper alignment and movement in the spine. They see patients of all ages in the Arlington Heights, IL area. Dr. Katie has a special focus on infant, kids, and pregnancy chiropractic. So if you want to keep your family healthy this flu season, give them a call!
