Press Release Summary: Chiropractic can be used to prevent the flu and strengthen the immune system. Dr. Mitchell Shea offers an insight to why and how we can fight the flu using all natural methods.
Press Release Body: According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, up to 50 million Americans will get the flu this year.
There are natural preventative measures that can increase your chances of escaping this years flu season. Chiropractic care may be your answer to a clean bill of health. Dr. Mitchell Shea, chiropractor and owner of Shea Chiropractic in Cookeville, TN, can give your immune system a boost using all natural methods. \"Chiropractic may be a superior alternative to traditional methods of fighting the flu, like the flu vaccine. The reason being, it uses natural methods to strengthen the immune system and allows the body to work more efficiently,\" said Dr. Shea.
A study shown in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research in 1997 showed chiropractic care to be effective in treating the flu. Over 2,800 individuals received regular chiropractic care and the result was an average 15% decrease in the incidence of colds and the flu.
According to the World Chiropractic Alliance, spinal adjustments can help your immune system function better. An adjustment corrects what are called vertebral subluxation\'s, which cause interference of the nervous system. When an adjustment is performed, it releases pressure on the nerves and allows more efficient interaction between your body\'s nervous system and immune system. When your immune system is healthy it is better prepared to prevent or combat the flu.
According to Dr. Shea, preventing the flu is just one of the benefits his patients have seen. They report less back and neck pain, fewer headaches, and more energy. Since a large part of the population does not need the flu shot, natural preventative methods should be a priority. Eating healthy foods, exercising, having good hygiene, and having a healthy body are all important issues in combating the flu.
