A drugless approach to boosting your immune system
One of the studies that showed the effects of chiropractic on the immune system was in 1989 by Ronald Pero, Ph.D. Dr. Pero was the chief cancer prevention researcher at New York University. Since cancer is recognized as an immune system problem, Dr. Pero decided to check the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to people in the general population and to people with cancer or other serious disease. In a 3 year study of 107 individuals who had been under regular chiropractic care for at least 5 years, he found that this chiropractic group had a 200% greater immune function than the general public. More than this, he found that the chiropractic group had a 400% greater immunity than people with cancer and other disease.
In his conclusion, Dr. Pero reported, “I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase over the normal patients.”
In addition to regular exercise, proper diet and reduced stress, maintaining the proper function of your spine and nervous system through regular chiropractic adjustments is proven to be a vital component of optimal health and wellness.
