CHIROPRACTIC: ONE WAY TO FEEL BETTER AND GAIN A SENSE OF CONTROL

“Listen to your elders!” A study of over-60 year olds found that 29.2% of them used complementary health alternatives in the past year: herbal therapies, chiropractic and massage topped the list. 60% of those folks wrote it was “important” for maintaining their health and well-being. They reported that it boosted their overall health, and they felt better. They had a better sense of control over their health. They said these types of options created an easier way to cope with their health problems. (1) Today more than ever, we in McHenry are all in need of a stronger sense of control over our health and well-being. Your McHenry chiropractor is your partner in good times and hard times, for young folks and elders! Make your appointment soon! In the meantime, taking this sensible advice from the CDC in this time of the coronavirus pandemic is a good idea, too, as these are all things within our control when so much around us is not. (2)

Correcting McHenry vitamin D deficiency increases the immune system to ward off disease and even depression. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Take Vitamin D

A healthy body relies on a healthy, well-functioning immune system. Vitamin D plays a beneficial role in supporting a health immune system and aids fight challenges to it. Air pollution is a challenge as it can activate extreme immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution usually lands on respiratory mucosa and influences the respiratory system. (The news is filled with talk about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is a strategy research suggests may enhance the immune system to fight such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly beneficial to improve and keep clinical depression at bay due to its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Many from government, research and industry globally are very aware that vitamin D deficiency is an extensive problem. All are working to find ways to deal with it and answer the questions “How much vitamin D should I take a day?” and “How best do we ensure everyone gets that?” (5) Let us talk about this at your next chiropractic appointment and make a plan to increase your vitamin D level and allow your body to fight health-compromising problems.
