One of the many benefits of Chiropractic care is that it helps to boost the immune system. With the start of school many kids will be exposed to illness and have their immune systems compromised by lack of sleep, injuries on the play ground, as well as being exposed to numerous new viruses and bacteria from their classmates coughs and sneezes.
In our family, when we know we have been exposed to a sickness the first thing we do is to get adjusted! (Insider Tip: A quick way to get rid of a sore throat when you first start to feel sick is to have a chiropractic adjustment of your neck!) After our chiropractic adjustments we take a healing bath with our Dr. Ortiz's Sea Salt Soak Mineral Bath. For our daughters we stress the need for them to soak and swish their ears in the salt bath to help cleanse their ears.
Next we make sure we drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and we overload our bodies with nutrients through the foods we eat (Vegetables, Fruits, Brown Rice and Mushrooms) and supplements such as MycoForce Immunity from HealthForce (which makes a delicious and healing broth that you can add vegetables and rice to for an extra healing punch).
We use this same protocol when we want to boost our immune systems to prevent sickness (daily to every couple days). Chiropractic is for the whole family! Call us to set up an appointment for you and your family. Children are the future and it is our responsibility as parents to make sure they are their healthiest to learn all they can and grow to be their best possible selves! But we also need to lead by example so that they see that healthy living is a lifestyle!
Here's to a happy healthy school year!
