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 going to Dr. D when my orthopedic doctor recommended him for whiplash. I had always been skeptical of chiro services, but Dr. D and his associates are wonderful. They've kept me pain free for years now, as I have monthly adjustments to ensure good health now and in the future. I highly recommend Dr. D."
Maureen Willcox
"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."

He says since he has been coming here, if his back has any issues or is out, it seems to get better much faster than ever before. If you've had any problems with your back, you'll know that speaks volumes. We trust this group!"

"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!"

"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."
