Can chiropractic care benefit the immune system?

Chiropractic care is most commonly known for its ability to relieve pain and discomfort from injuries, headaches, and more. Although we likely haven't thought of visiting our chiropractor for immune support, research suggests that we may want to reconsider.

AURORA, Colo. - June 2, 2020 - PRLog -- Balanced nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep are known immune-boosters, but research is suggesting that a visit to your chiropractor should be added to that list. Chiropractic adjustments and care have the ability to teach the body to resist a virus or bacteria through proactive immune defence.

Typical health care immediately suggests the use of medication to combat cold or virus symptoms. However, under this type of treatment, the root cause of the illness is not being addressed and the symptom is just being suppressed.

Chiropractic care, on the other hand, addresses the underlying cause and strengthens the immune system. This works to prevent the virus or bacterial infection altogether from being able to take root, which is what causes the illness.

Here's how it works: spinal adjustments strengthen the central nervous system (CNS) by increasing the communication between the brain and spinal cord, which aligns the vertebrae. When the vertebrae is aligned and functioning properly, it signals the rest of the body that everything is under control.

When the body is in alignment, it is able to work on producing immune-supporting cells and processes. One study concluded that pathogen-fighting white blood cells increased after just fifteen minutes of chiropractic care, while another concluded that after an adjustment, immune-boosting Immunoglobulin A (IgA) levels in the blood and lymph increased by 139%.

When searching for an aurora chiropractor or chiropractor near me, Dr. Hancock and his team at Discover Health and Wellness are ready to set you up for immune success.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 2, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Jul 2, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Jul 2, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jul 2, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
