Is Stress Increasing Your Risk Of Getting Sick?

Cold, flu and now, Covid season are upon us. We are experiencing something that many of us probably thought we would never see during our lifetime, another pandemic. It’s unsettling, scary, and frustrating for many people. We have learned from watching what has unfolded this year that we need to take extraordinary measures and be proactive rather than reactive. 

……………………………..

Your best defense against the cold, flu and covid is a HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM!

It’s important that we are all prepared and thinking about how we can strengthen our immune systems to help avoid getting sick or to help us fight it if we are infected.

Stress on the nervous system can weaken your immune system and with all that is going on in the world today, we are under a lot of stress. Physical stress, emotional stress and chemical/toxic stress…….resulting in stress overload. Going back to a study of 222 college students in 2013 showed that even just the short term stress of final exams lowered immune system function. (1) There are numerous ways to help you deal with stress via lifestyle changes. In addition to these lifestyle changes chiropractic adjustments have been shown in research to reduce stress on the body leading to better function of your brain and nervous system.

Chiropractors have been trained in helping patients make lifestyle changes that have been shown in research to lower stress levels. 

Be proactive. Ask us what lifestyle changes are best suited for you and get adjusted.
