How Chiropractic Care Can Support Autoimmune Disease
If you want to tap into your body’s own healing capabilities, you should consider regular chiropractic care. A chiropractor can help promote balance and overall health within the body by focusing on proper nervous system function via spine alignment. When your entire system is in a state of homeostasis, there are a lot of great health benefits such as better mental health, a stronger immune system, and improved general overall health. This is why chiropractic care is a great adjunct to treatment for supporting any chronic diseases like autoimmune disease.
Spine Alignment and the Immune System
The nervous system plays a vital role in a normal immune system response. If there is a dysfunction in the neural tissues, caused by underlying issues like spine misalignment, this can affect these delicate systems and the way they interact with each other. Restoring proper spine alignment can help support a properly balanced immune system. Plus, good neural health can even prevent or manage chronic issues associated with autoimmunity.
In particular, Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is an elite, research-oriented approach to address spine misalignment. The systematic non-invasive approach helps restore nerve energy blocks caused by poor spine alignment. A CBP practitioner can support your overall health from the bottom up by addressing this commonly overlooked root issue.
What is Autoimmune Disease?
The immune system is constantly monitoring the body for exposure to foreign objects such as cancer cells, bacteria, and viruses. When needed, it launches an attack to prevent or shorten the length of illness or disease. If the immune system is too weak or strong, it can lead to some major health issues. When the system becomes overactive, as it does with autoimmune disease, it starts attacking its own tissues leading to inflammation, pain, and dysfunction.
What specific disease manifests with an overactive immune system depends on what area of the body is affected. Common autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, and lupus.
Treating Disease Holistically
Traditional treatment for autoimmune disease involves harsh medications that help manage pain and inflammation. There is also a lot of supporting evidence for lifestyle modifications and holistic treatment for better managing and preventing the progression of the disease as well. Options include stress management, diet changes, regular exercise, massage, yoga, and chiropractic care. The goal of holistic care is to reduce inflammation and promote healing in the body via the body’s own natural pathways.
When there is better nerve flow, the body has more energy and resources to support any disease it is dealing with. This is why chiropractic care is a great supporting option.
