Everyday millions of people throughout the world choose chiropractic as part of their healthy lifestyle. They recognize that health is the full expression of oneʼs potential physically, emotionally and spiritually, and and not just the absence of symptoms.
Here are some other reasons why….
Stronger Immune Function
“Chiropractic care optimizes whatever genetic abilities an individual has to resist disease. “ Dr. Ronald Peru, PhD, Chief of Cancer Prevention at New York’s Preventative Medicine Institute.
Dr. Peru found that chiropractic patients had a 200% stronger immune system than people who had no chiropractic care, and a 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer or other serious diseases. This response was consistent throughout the entire group and showed no decline with age!
In 2005 Dr. Peru also studied the benefits of chiropractic care on repairing DNA (the body’s building blocks) and he concluded that:
“DNA repair is the highest or most effective in individuals who had no symptoms and who had been receiving chiropractic care for the longest period of time.”
Other studies have concluded that the optimal functioning of the immune system is critically dependent on the balance of the endocrine (hormone) and nervous systems. “Loss of this balance can lead to immune defects and can significantly contribute to the occurrence of allergy and auto-immune disease.”
Higher Antioxidant Levels
In 2005, a landmark study found evidence that chiropractic care can reduce oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress plays a role in a whole host of diseases and disorders: Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and many others. Thiols are compounds in the body that act as antioxidants, reacting with free radicals to neutralize them. Serum levels of thiols reflect DNA’s capacity to repair itself, and can be used to measure aging and disease status.
The study participants who received chiropractic care for 2 or more years had higher serum thiol levels in their body. Some of the chiropractic patients even had serum thiol levels higher than what is associated with normal health and wellness!
