Our office will remain open during this Coronavirus outbreak.
To help prevent the spread of the virus we have instituted some new measures.
1️⃣We will be wiping the adjusting table down between each patient as well as frequent cleaning
of the door handles and surfaces.
2️⃣We will also maintain a limited number of people in the reception room.
If you are immunocompromised, please contact us so we can find a time for you to get adjusted when the office is empty.
If you have a cold, cough, or fever, or have recently travelled, please call and notify us.
If you are worried about the virus this is the best time to get in to see us. Chiropractic care should be an essential part of your immune system optimization.
During this time of fear and reaction, your autonomic nervous system will tend to be stuck in a sympathetic dominant state(fight or flight) which will suppress your immune system. Optimal nervous systems operate in a parasympathetic rest and repair mode most of the time.
Chiropractic care is a vital component of a maintaining health, especially during times like this.
Research has shown chiropractic adjustments can massively boost the immune response and help turn you from sympathetic dominance to parasympathetic dominance.
Chiropractic care was shown to be extremely effective during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. It is the number one thing our doctors do for ourselves and our families to optimize immune function.
Your best defense against any pathogen is having a robust immune system. Along with chiropractic care here are some of the other immune powerhouses you can add to your routine.
➡️Deep breathing. Breathe slow and deep through your nose 4-5 seconds then breathe out slower through the mouth making a “ha” sound. Take 3-4 breaths throughout the day.
➡️Meditation. I recommend the Headspace app. It’s free to try.
➡️Improve sleep. A Pitch black, cool room, with no electronics in your room. If you have to bring your phone, turn it on airplane mode and don’t keep it in bed. Don’t look at a screen for an hour before bed. Do your deep breathing while laying in bed.
➡️Diet. Limit sugar intake. Limit flour intake. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables as well as healthy meats and fats. Drink lots of clean water and warm or hot beverages are better than cold ones
➡️Supplements: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Selenium, Zinc, NAC and/or Glutathione. These have been shown to be necessary and beneficial for a proper immune response during viral insult and respiratory distress.
➡️Get outside and get some sunshine if you can. Go for a walk. Walk through the woods. Get into nature.
➡️Moderate exercise. Too much can stress the immune system by leaving you depleted. Too little means low muscle density which is one of the reasons the elderly succumb to all sorts of immune challenges. Besides muscle density there are numerous other benefits to exercise on the immune system like maintaining lymph flow, cardiovascular health, digestive health etc.
➡️Mindset. Turn off the news. Limit your screen time. Get the junk out. Turn on your attention to your family and friends. Be grateful for the many blessings in your life.
We are here for you during this time. If you have any questions please reach out. You can message us here or on our Facebook or Instagram pages.
