How A Compromised Immune System Can Affect Our Health

How A Compromised Immune System Can Affect Our Health

So much has been said about how poor the overall health of our nation is and it’s nothing anymore to hear of young people getting all forms of cancer. One of the leading factors is a compromised immune system. Our immune system was designed to fight off infectious diseases. Sometimes that means a simple cold or the flu, but it can also mean the lack of ability for our bodies to fight off serious diseases.

With a compromised immune system, our bodies have a limited capacity to fight off harmful substances. And we do encounter harmful toxins each day simply from breathing the air. In addition, many people work around chemicals, x-ray machines, bacteria, viruses and many others. The human body is supposed to be able to fight these toxins, but someone with a compromised immune system has a limited ability to do this. That leaves them open to disease, toxins, bacteria and all sorts of foreign substances.

With the holistic approach to health, we attempt to bring healing through natural methods that provide lasting results. We don’t deal in “quick fixes”. Chiropractic Adjustments and massages are both good examples of this. When you’re suffering with stiff achy muscles, your first inclination is to reach for a pain killer. Though this can provide temporary help, it’s best to see your chiropractor. With manual manipulation, the vertebrae are gently moved back into alignment. This is a non-invasive method that offers lasting results.

Massage therapy can also loosen up tight muscles. With more Americans stooped over a computer all day, the back and neck muscles can cramp up and cause pain. A relaxing massage can deliver almost immediate healing to those muscles. When the musculoskeletal system stays healthy, it grows stronger, offering better support to the whole body.

Everyone at Atlanta Spine would like to wish you a happy, healthy 2016. We’re here when you need us with massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment, nutritional counseling, EMS therapy and other services designed to keep you healthy. Please call us if we can be of service.
