Did you know that your immune system and nervous system go hand in hand. Your nervous system which is your brain and spinal cord tells everything in your body what to do. Your immune system works right beside it. If you are susceptible to colds, flu, you have a general fatigue then your body is working much harder than it is supposed to. Are you concerned when somebody sneezes or coughs around you? You quickly get antiseptic wipes because you are afraid that you are going to catch that cold or you know you are. That is your body’s way of telling you that it is not functioning properly for you. Most of the time, the first two bones in your neck are not aligned properly and when that happens, your immune system cannot work at its optimal potential.
A great way for you to check yourself to see if these bones are aligned properly, look from one side to the other and straight ahead. If your ears are not balanced, one ear is higher than the other or you are rotated that tells you that your nervous system, brain and spinal cord, is not functioning properly right at the beginning stage of it where the brain and spinal cord meet. That puts your body in a state of dis-ease. When you are in a state of dis-ease, where your nervous system has to function harder for you for the day, it makes you more susceptible to cold, flu and general fatigue. That is what decreases your immune system.
There are other factors that are involved as well. There are chemical type stressors. These are things that you are putting into our body to use as food or things in your environment that might not be good for you. Those can also suppress your immune system and give you misalignments right up under your skull.
Also, emotional type stressors can decrease your immune system as well. What I find with my patients is that when we work on strengthening the nervous system by decreasing interferences within the spine, looking at the nutritional aspect of what you are putting into your body to use as food or any chemical type exposure you might be having on a regular basis; emotionally you are feeling better as well, your spirits are better and your immune system is stronger.
