Understanding The Immune System
The immune system is traditionally seen as a system which is made up of several OTHER systems in the body. To the degree that these systems can all communicate and work together will equal an individual’s ability to express optimal health DESPITE being faced with several “invaders” on a daily basis.
The most powerful therapeutic in the world is our own immune system
This amazing system has the ability to recognize and fight off several organisms, viruses and the like, all which can wreak havoc if left unchecked in a human body.
This is accomplished by using white blood cells, antibodies, the lymphatic system, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, together in an effort to return your body to balance.
Without an immune system, the human race would have been wiped off of this Earth eons ago.
The Chiropractic Connection
The profession of chiropractic simply seeks to improve overall body function by means of optimizing the body’s master controlling system, the nervous system.
In a sense, your body’s immune system and the nervous system are the same thing!
The immune system is viewed as a network of different organs, cells, and tissues that work together in a concerted effort to bring about resiliency to foreign invaders!
The nerves of the body are powering these tissues, organs, and cells and without proper power and full communication, one’s immunity suffers greatly over time.
Have you more faith in a spoonful of medicine than in the power that animates the living world? – BJ Palmer
At many points in history, chiropractic has shone through the darkness and proven its abilities as it pertains to improving immune system function, or what scientists sometimes call immune competency.
