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

“Listen to your elders!” An analysis of over-60 year olds discovered 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 reported that it was “important” for maintaining their health and well-being. They reported that it improved 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 Vancouver all need a better sense of control over our health and well-being.

Correcting Vancouver vitamin D deficiency boosts the immune system to ward off disease and even depression. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Take Vitamin D

A healthy body needs a healthy, well-functioning immune system. Vitamin D supports a health immune system and helps fight challenges to it. Air pollution is a challenge as it can activate excessive immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution typically lands on respiratory mucosa and influences the respiratory system. (The news is filled with talk about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is one strategy study proposes may boost the immune system to resist such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly advantageous to improve and keep clinical depression at bay via its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Many from government, research and industry around the world recognize that vitamin D deficiency is an extensive problem. They are seeking for ways to deal with it and respond to the questions “How much vitamin D should I take daily?” and “How best do we ensure everyone gets that?” (5) Let’s discuss this at your next chiropractic visit and make a plan to increase your vitamin D level and allow your body to fight health-compromising challenges.
