Prevent Illness with the help of Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellnessin Minneapolis

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Ach. Ach who? Bless you! Does it seem like everyone around you sneezes during this season? Cold, cough, flu, strep, it floats all around you! People stock up on masks and wipe down everything with Lysol and bleach, which can help the environment around you, sure. But why focus on what’s around you versus what your own body can do to help prevent the common cold and flu that seems to be everywhere this season? Did you ever wonder why everyone in the same environment doesn’t get sick? Having a strong immune system starts with a healthy nervous system. At Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness, we can help you find relief, correction and even a higher quality of life, including helping to protect against the common cold.

How Do We Really Get Colds?

If you could live in a bubble and keep a distance from everyone during cold and flu season, would you? It would certainly be a lonely life. The common cold, as well as the flu, is a virus that can affect your open respiratory areas, meaning your nose, throat, sinuses, and even your voice box. Commonly, the virus is spread through droplets in the air and on surfaces where others with the virus have been. While this is typically a standard fact, what most people don’t know is that these viruses don’t really affect people with strong immune systems. Just breathing them in will not make you sick. However, in a fertile environment, like a weakened immune system, viruses will thrive and grow and make you feel downright miserable.

Chiropractic Care with the Common Cold

To be clear, there is no cure for the common cold. Viruses cannot be treated with antibiotics and only time will heal a viruses symptoms. However, chiropractic care can increase your natural resistance to colds! As our Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness staff aligns your back and vertebrae, subluxations are corrected, which free proper nerve flow throughout your body, raising your natural resistance. Studies have shown that when subluxations are present, which are the misalignments of vertebrae in your spine, nerves are not able to communicate, which in turn lowers your immune system and makes you more susceptible to the common cold.

While there are several factors to keeping a healthy immune system such as exercise, reducing stress, and getting quality sleep, Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness can increase your immune system and boost your fight against all of those pesky viruses floating around this season.
