  • See Stress Relief Workshop for details on these techniques above

ADJUSTMENTS:

  • Get regular adjustments to improve immune function.
  • Research has shown that adjustments improve immune function:
    • During the Spanish Flu in 1917 and 1918 those who got adjustments and chiropractic care had a much higher survival rate than those who were under medical care (see article)
    • Ronald Pero, PhD, chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventative Medicine Institute did a study in 1975 that found those receiving chiropractic care had a 200% greater immune-competence than those who didn’t receive chiropractic. (see article)
    • In 2014, researchers at The University of Madrid Medical School and the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Jaen Spain found a link between chiropractic adjustments and the immune system. The study found that the mechanical stimulus provided by spinal manipulation triggers an increase in neurotensin, oxytocin, and cortisol blood levels. All of these have a direct effect on immune modulation and regulation. (Plaza-Manzano, et. al.)
    • A 2011 study in the Journal of Osteopathic Association found that "Spinal adjustment increases IgA by 139% increasing immunity, decrease risk of infections." IgA is a specific immune system protein vital for immune function.
    • A 2010 study in the Chiropractic and Opsteopathy Journal found that "Those who received an adjustment had significantly higher IgG and IgM levles post adjustment compared to control groups." These markers signify increased immunity. It also showed that patients who received chiropractic adjustments showed increased levels of interlaken-2 which regulates the activities of white blood cells.
