Traffic Jams. Paying bills. Deadlines. Pesky neighbors. These unpleasant or challenging situations create stress in our lives. So why is it some people deal with these stress situations better than others?
The answer is complex and includes many factors from genetics to weather conditions, but communicating with your chiropractor about dealing with stress is the starting point. You might be surprised to find that chiropractors are full of sound advice on ways to effectively deal with stress in your everyday life. When you are receiving regular chiropractic care, you will begin to learn that improving nerve and spinal function has a dramatic impact on improving emotional, mental, and physical function in your life.
Chiropractors, as well as others, understand that problems with your spine and nervous system come from 3 primary stresses: Physical, Chemical & Emotional. In fact, Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University, measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases.
In his initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer and other serious diseases. The superiority of those under chiropractic care also did not diminish with age.
