Cancer Killer Essential #2: Nerve Supply
When you have a subluxated area of your spine (section that is not moving properly or is shifted out of place), pressure is placed on your nervous system. This is like dealing with bad cell phone reception and communication within your body breaks down. The longer this interference is in place, the more damage is done on your nervous system. How is this related to cancer and disease? Well your immune system is completely controlled by your nervous system. If your nervous system is damaged, it cannot send the proper energy and nerve supply to your immune system.
In a healthy body, the immune system sends out countless cells to protect your body. It creates specific cells meant to kill off cancer. When your cancer-killing system is activated, it sends out a substance called interleukin-2 (IL-2). These power-house cells promote the growth of new T-cells whose job it is to attack disease-causing agents, activates T-cells and natural killer cells (NK) that kill off viruses, and stimulate Lymphokine-Activated Killer (LAK) cells that will destroy tumor cells.
In a subluxated body, many of these processes cannot take place with the nerve interference. Realigning the spine restoring proper curves, and aligning the skull and pelvis will reinstate proper nervous system function. The process of doing this is called spinal correction and that is exactly what we specialize in. Through spinal correction, we are able to address the underlying issue, remove the interference, and maximize function of the whole body. Chiropractic is not all about spinal pain alone. Revitalizing the nervous system is our main goal, reduction in pain just happens to be a positive side effect.
Research has long shown the positive effect chiropractic care can have on the immune system. In the 1918 Flu Epidemic, the death rate of chiropractic patients was 1/40th that of non-chiropractic patients. In 2010, a study was done on the effects of a chiropractic adjustment on IL-2 cells. “Chiropractic adjustments temporarily influence interleukin-2-regulated biologic responses following a single adjustment”.
It is astonishing what are bodies are capable of, if we only eliminate the interference.
