Did you know that your nervous system and immune system go hand in hand? Your nervous system which is your brain and spinal cord tells everything in your body what to do and your immune system works right beside it. So, if you are susceptible to colds, flu, or you have a general fatigue, your body is working much harder than it is supposed to.
Are you concerned when someone sneezes or coughs around you? You quickly get antiseptic wipes because you’re afraid you are going to catch that cold or you just know you are? That’s 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. 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 is to look (video showing head turning) 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, are not functioning correctly right 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 colds, flu, and general fatigue which decreases your immune system.
Now, there are other factors that are involved as well. There are chemical type stressors. These are things that you are putting into your body to use as food or things that are in your environment that might not be good for you. These can also suppress your immune system and also give you misalignments right up under here (video showing you the back of the skull and upper portion of the neck).
Also, emotional type stressors can decrease your immune system. What I find with my patients is that when we work on strengthening the nervous system by decreasing interferences within the spine while looking at the nutritional aspect of what you are putting into your body to use as food or any chemical exposure you might be having on a regular basis; emotionally you’re feeling better, your spirits are better, and your immune system is stronger.
