CHIROPRACTIC: ONE WAY TO FEEL BETTER AND GAIN A SENSE OF CONTROL
“Listen to your elders!” A study of over-60 year olds stated that 29.2% of them used complementary health alternatives in the past year: herbal therapies, chiropractic and massage lead the list. 60% of those folks reported that it was “important” for keeping their health and well-being. They said that it boosted their overall health, and they felt better. They had an improved sense of control over their health. They said these types of options made it easier to cope with their health problems. (1) Today more than ever, we in Easley are all in need of a better sense of control over our health and well-being. Your Easley chiropractor is with you in good times and difficult times, for young folks and elders! Come see us soon. Meanwhile, taking this sensible advice from the CDC in this time of the coronavirus pandemic is a good idea, too, as they are all things within our control when so much around us isn’t. (2)
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 helps combat challenges to it. Air pollution is a challenge as it can activate excessive immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution usually settles on respiratory mucosa and has an effect on the respiratory system. (We hear a lot about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is a strategy research proposes may enhance the immune system to fight such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly beneficial to improve and keep clinical depression at bay via its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Many from government, research and industry globally know that vitamin D deficiency is an extensive problem. They 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’s talk about this at your next chiropractic appointment and set a plan to boost your vitamin D level and permit your body to ward off health-compromising challenges.
