CHIROPRACTIC: ONE WAY TO FEEL BETTER AND GAIN A SENSE OF CONTROL

“Listen to your elders!” An analysis 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 said it was “important” for keeping their health and well-being. They reported 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 interventions made it easier to cope with their health problems. (1) Today more than ever, we in Toronto are all in need of a stronger sense of control over our health and well-being. Your Toronto chiropractor is with you in good times and difficult times, for young folks and elders! Come see us soon. In the meantime, take advice from the CDC while the coronavirus pandemic is on our minds, too, as they are all things within our control when so much around us is not. (2)

Correcting Toronto vitamin D deficiency increases the immune system to ward off disease and even depression. 

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 trigger excessive immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution typically lands on respiratory mucosa and affects the respiratory system. (We hear a lot about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is one strategy research suggests may boost the immune system to resist 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 around the world recognize that vitamin D deficiency is an extensive 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 set a plan to increase your vitamin D level and allow your body to ward off health-compromising challenges.
