CHIROPRACTIC: ONE WAY TO FEEL BETTER AND GAIN A SENSE OF CONTROL
“Listen to your elders!” A study of over-60 year olds found that 29.2% of them used complementary health alternatives in the last 12 months: herbal therapies, chiropractic and massage topped 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 enhanced 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 Augusta all need a stronger sense of control over our health and well-being. Your Augusta chiropractor is your partner in good times and difficult times, for young folks and elders! Make your appointment soon! In the meantime, 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 is not. (2)
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 undue 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 study proposes may enhance the immune system to resist such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly beneficial to improve and keep clinical depression at bay due to its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Many from government, research and industry globally recognize that vitamin D deficiency is a big problem. All 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 us talk about this at your next chiropractic visit and make a plan to boost your vitamin D level and permit your body to ward off health-compromising challenges.
