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!

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time."

"Amazing place to get realigned! Everyone in here is highly knowledgeable and genuine. I've been a patient here for 10+ years and recommended it frequently!"
Kyle Maglio
"The administrative staff and practitioners are all friendly, capable, efficient, and very responsive. In addition, Dr. Keith Wade is knowledgeable, passionate about his craft, patient and thorough in answering questions. As a direct result of all that, my low back, ankles an knees feel much better, I am in less pain, and I am less afraid that my back will keep hurting or "going out." I am very grateful."
Malinda Branson
"I just finished my 30 session program and went over my x-rays with Dr. Wade. The improvement in my scoliosis shown in the x-rays was remarkable and corresponded with the greater mobility and wellbeing I have been experiencing. Dr. Wade is very professional and always willing to answer questions and address specific concerns. I highly recommend him."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"

"This practice has been the only place that got rid of my shoulder pain. Prior I tried an orthopedic and PT with no success. I was told it was just due to getting older. Dr. D doesn’t believe people have to live with pain and helped it go away. To top it all off, you never have to wait long in the waiting room."

"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."

"Dr. Wade has been wonderful! I never thought spinal care was a preventative health measure until I started here. The entire staff are very accommodating and friendly! My back has never felt better! I plan to continue to come for maintenance."
Amanda Smith
"I strained my lower back a month prior to an Ironman race. I was unable to sleep, walk or sit, never mind continue training as planned. The entire office staff is beyond kind, caring, professional and runs extremely smooth. I was explained every step and procedure, along with a patient education class that really helped me understand what was wrong with my back and steps to fix it. Dr Wade was able to get me sleeping, walking and able to compete in my triathlon. 5 stars for many reasons and would highly recommend."
Dylan Howley
"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."

"From the moment you walk into the office, you are welcomed with a smile and they even manage to remember every single patient's name. They treat you like family and put a lot of emphasis on your care. I started coming to this office when my son was about 4 months old and now at 11 months old, I have seen SO much progress with his neck that I myself started to see Dr D. and I am very grateful to have found such a wonderful place."
