Chiropractic Helps Prevent H1N1 Flu in Kids

chiropractichealthOn September 4, 2009 a Swine Flu (H1N1 virus) update from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reported that 36 children died from complications of the virus.

All 36 children previously suffered with neurodevelopmental disorders. Many of these kids had chronic heart disorders and were obese.

Regardless of whether or not your child suffers with such nervous system disorders or is perfectly healthy, there are TWO IMPORTANT STEPS you can take to help protect your child from the H1N1 flu: CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS and WASHING HANDS FREQUENTLY.

Chiropractic adjustments work to remove interference to the nervous system by easily and painlessly realigning the vertebrae of the spine. Correcting a misaligned spine allows messages from the brain to travel through the spinal cord, unhindered, telling all body organs and functions to operate at maximum capacity, increasing immunity. This is why it is so important to have your child’s spine checked for interference.

A healthy diet, regular exercise and proper sleep work together with chiropractic adjustments to boost your child’s immune system. Frequent hand washing and covering your mouth/nose while coughing/sneezing will also help deter the H1N1 virus.
