According to CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Threats Report, more than 2.8 million infections occur in the United States each year.  Out of that, more than 35,000 people die because of antibiotic-resistant infections.

Many experts believe that it is better to give the body a chance to heal itself with rest, fluids, sunshine, and natural remedies along with chiropractic adjustments that remove pressure from the nervous system. Unless there is an extreme elevation in body temperature, and depending on other symptoms, allowing your body to heal itself naturally helps your immune system build the resistance it needs to keep you healthy and fight infections more effectively.

Stop treating your body’s symptoms – they can hide the real cause!

Since nerves control every cell, tissue, and organ of your body, problems in the nervous system can cause or mimic nearly every symptom imaginable. Consider the case for “referred pain.”

This means you can feel a symptom in one part of your body while the cause or the origin of that pain is somewhere else. For example, very often the cause of arm, hand, or finger pain is in the neck. Leg and foot pain will often originate from a problem in the back.

Problems with the gallbladder will often refer pain to the nerve roots in the middle part of the spine, and vice versa. Chiropractic works to restore health and vitality to the nervous system, and as a result, the entire body often becomes free of symptoms.
