The cold weather is upon us in Geneva, IL and we know this time of the year is known as the “Cold & Flu Season“.  Have you ever stopped and thought about why the cold weather leads us to believe it is flu season? Are the viruses and bacteria only alive this time of the year?

The truth is the viruses and the bacteria did not go into hibernation and are now waking up. The viruses exist all year long.  However, our bodies become more susceptible because our systems are weaker. We experience more stress, less fresh air, less natural sunlight, less exercise, and poor nutritional choices.

I believe one of the best ways to fight these seasonal stresses is by taking Vitamin C. And that Vitamin C is Vitamin Chiropractic Care.

When you are sick, your immune system is the part of your body that fights off viruses. Therefore, it is important to ensure your immune system is functioning optimally this time of the year.

Chiropractic adjustments restore proper spine function, which allows your nervous system to perform optimally When the body is in alignment, signals can make there way through the body without interference. When our body does not have to fight through interference, we are able to heal and perform at a faster rate.

One of the most important studies about Chiropractic and the immune system was performed by Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University. In his initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer and other serious diseases (1).
