Keeping your Spine in Alignment Helps Boost your Immune System
Posted Nov 26 2009 12:00am
Your spinal cord and nervous system is the most important system in your body. This is why it’s encased in bone. Think about this, your central nervous system; it’s like the hard drive of your computer. If it goes, you’re in big trouble.
The CNS (Central Nervous System) consists of your brain and spinal cord. This control center helps run your other body functions like your digestive system, circulatory system, and immune system, to name a few.
We could go on for days and elaborate on all the necessary functions and what kind of problems you can have if these body components are disturbed, but today I wanted to focus on the immune system. This time of year when there are so many colds and viruses going around, it is of utmost importance you keep your body functioning at its best.
Studies have shown us that regular chiropractic adjustments boost your immune system up to 40%. That’s why using a cervical support pillow such as the cervical linear traction pillow comes in! Just like an adjustment, this pillow helps improve neck posture and maintain healthy alignment. This alignment is absolutely vital because if alignment is good, then there’s no unwanted stress on the nervous system. Therefore, important body communications can be made at 100%; and that means your immune system will work at its best. Putting pressure on the nerves disrupts things in the body and leads to poor health.
Take an active role in staying healthy this year. Start by keeping your neck in perfect alignment, it is essential in keeping your body at its best.
