To Tame Colds and Flu, Consider Newport Beach Chiropractor


‘Tis the season … for flus, colds and bronchitis.

If you want to avoid feeling miserable this winter, consider chiropractic. Accumulating evidence indicates that chiropractic can boost the immune system. At Wellness Choice Center in Newport Beach, plenty of patients offer anecdotal evidence about fewer and shorter colds and flu attacks.

But a growing body of scientific studies backs up this contention. The results date as far back as the flu epidemic in 1917 and 1918, when the death rate among flu victims under chiropractic care was .25 percent – compared with a rate of 5 percent among flu victims who didn’t use chiropractic care.

Jack Neil of the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic reviewed existing literature on spinal adjustments and immune response up to January 2012. He confirmed that spinal adjustments are associated with an anti-inflammatory response. Research suggests that spinal manipulation may reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines and increase antibodies involved in the immune response. Manipulation also may increase the production of leukocytes, which support white blood cells in fighting off threats.

The relationship between chiropractic and your immune system is simple. Your spine houses the nervous system, which controls all the functions of your body. Accidents, injuries and other activities that are a part of daily life lead to misalignments of the spine, or vertebrae that are shifted out of proper position.

A misaligned spine puts pressure on delicate nerves, interfering with their communications with the rest of the body. Much like a hose with a kink in it, your body – including your immune system – can’t function at its peak.

The solution is Chiropractic BioPhysics, which can rehabilitate the spine, reshape it, and restore your immune system back to health. At Wellness Choice Center, Dr. Nona Djavid and Dr. Jane Macris are among only a handful of Orange County, California, chiropractors trained in this discipline.

If you want to stay healthy this winter, let Wellness Choice Center realign your spine back to health. Dr. Djavid has helped thousands of Newport Beach, Irvine, Newport Coast, Corona Del Mar, and Costa Mesa, California, residents live healthier lives.
