woman taking vitaminsAutumn Greetings! Saying goodbye to summer is always difficult, but fall is a favorite for many of us. When a new season arrives, it’s important to prioritize our health.

Weather changes, including crisp autumn temperatures, can challenge our immune system and aggravate seasonal allergies. Did you know there are several ways to give your immune system a natural boost and feel more energized?

Chiropractic care can address chronic pain, fatigue, muscle weakness or tightness and decreased mood. Coupled with the right supplements, regular chiropractic treatment can provide the lift you need to feel your best this season!

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

October is National Chiropractic Health Month and Spinal Health Month! Especially during this unprecedented pandemic year, it’s crucial to care for our bodies from head to toe.

When the body experiences forms of excessive stress, the nerves can become irritated. Over time, areas of the spine may start to weaken and cause unexplained pain.

Chiropractic adjustments open the nerve pathways to our most vital systems. Taking this undue pressure off the nerves and eliminating interferences can also help the immune system function properly.

On this subject, did you know certain nutrients help protect our body’s main systems? As chiropractors, we are trained to treat the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Consider adding the following supplements to your daily wellness regime to support their health.

1. Vitamin D3

Vitamin D is actually a hormone that’s naturally produced by the kidneys. Perhaps most commonly known to promote strong bones, Vitamin D also boosts immune cellular function. Vitamin D3 is the most bioavailable form, meaning it’s absorbed well by the body.

The recommended daily dosage of Vitamin D3 is 5,000 – 10,000 IUs.

2. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that promotes immune strength. It’s also known to help with the growth and repair body tissues. Vitamin C supports healthy bones, teeth and iron absorption. Iron plays an important role in transporting oxygen throughout the body.

The recommended daily dosage of Vitamin C is 500 – 1,000 mg.

3. Zinc (30-60mg)

Zinc is a key mineral that supports immune function. Studies have linked zinc deficiency to increased risk for chronic inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis. Getting the proper amount of zinc can keep your immune system strong and helps with wound healing.

The recommended daily dosage of Zinc is 30 – 60 mg.

4. N-acetylcysteine (NAC)

This sulfur-containing amino acid stimulates the production of immune cells. NAC also helps replenish glutathione, a powerful antioxidant in the body, and can alleviate symptoms of chronic respiratory conditions. Studies have further illustrated NAC’s ability to impede the lifespan of the influenza virus.

The recommended daily dosage of NAC is 600 mg.
 
Including Vitamins D3 and C, Zinc and NAC in your everyday routine can help boost the strength and performance of the body’s major systems. Along with regular chiropractic care, this regimen can help you lead a healthier lifestyle!

"Been going to The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury for over 5 years and it is always been a great, safe and welcoming experience! Cannot recommend it enough."
Olivia M.
"I started coming here 5 years ago. At that time, I had difficulty walking down our hallway. With Dr. D’s care, I am at the gym 4x a week and yoga 2x a week. I will continue to come on a regular basis as part of my proactive healthy living plan. Not only am I grateful for the amazing care I receive here, but for the staff who now feel like family."

Truly a practice that cares about its patients!"
Lisa C.
"I have been a patient for over a year and have seen terrific results from my plan of care. I was introduced to the office by a friend after I told him I was having back pain. The staff and doctors have been outstanding. They took some x-rays and ruled out certain things and put me on a plan of care that helped get me straight and pain free. I can't thank them enough."

If you've had any problems with your back, you'll know that speaks volumes. We trust this group!"

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."

"There is no better place than Chiropractic Health Center, from the moment you step into the office, you are welcomed with a smile and they even manage to remember every patients name. They put a lot of emphasis on your care, you start feeling better with every visit. I would recommend this practice over any other possible treatment/office in the state."
Carlos V.
"If I could give more than five stars, I wouldn't hesitate to do so. The office staff are all very professional and accommodating. There have been several instances where I had to make a last minute change to my appointment - either a cancellation or different time - and the office responded right away to make it happen. Not only this, but my appointments are always quick, yet very efficient. The doctors take their time in addressing my questions and explaining things so that I receive the best possible care."

"Dr DeFrancesco is the best. I can’t say enough good things about him. He is a genuine and caring person. It is his help that has allowed me to continue to go to work every day and provide for my family. The staff is always super accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I have never received an attitude. When Dr DeFrancesco is not available, I am fortunate that he leaves me in the talented hands of Dr Wade and Dr LeFavor."
