Nicole decided to come to our clinic and try Corrective Chiropractic Care because she was impressed with the improvements her mother had received in regards to her headaches. Nicole did not have headaches, she had chronic atopic dermatitis. Her skin was always itchy and medicinal creams and medications only seemed to take the edge off and left her not feeling well. After starting care, Nicole began to notice that her skin was far less itchy and irritated. She no longer needed to take her medications. She had her life back. Not only did her dermatitis improve, but her amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) stopped and her menstrual cycle returned. This will have a huge effect on her ability to have children in the future!
Many people across the world experience the immune-boosting benefits of Chiropractic. Chiropractic adjustments do not treat allergies or the immune system. They remove interference to the nervous system to allow the body to function and fight like it was designed to do.
A study published in 2004 (cited below) showed amazing immune-boosting results for a group that started getting spinal adjustments. In this particular study, 1,028 people had some form of allergies (the most common was atopic dermatitis and bronchial asthma). X-Ray evidence and physical exams proved that 98% of these allergy patients had remarkably similar vertebral misalignments in their mid-back. Over 88% of the people with dermatitis who received consistent spinal adjustments showed massive improvement in skin itching and over 71% showed improvement in overall skin condition. Compare that to 0% improvement of the patients who did not receive adjustments.
This study is just another profound example showing how detrimental a vertebral Subluxation (spinal misalignment) is to human health. The problem continues to be a lack of education. People who do not know the scientific evidence continue to believe the profiteering message of pharmaceutical companies. All allergy drugs are harmful to your body and proven to produce nasty side-effects. Chiropractic evidence proves that the solution to most allergy problems already exists within the body. Remove the interference and people like Nicole with her dermatitis, Jeff with his asthma, and Marie with her seasonal allergies, are given the freedom to heal without drugs and chemicals.
