Every day we are exposed to more and more environmental toxins which enter our bodies and disrupt our internal defense systems. Since these toxins are nearly impossible to avoid, then we must rely on our immune system for defense. By having an efficient immune system, then our bodies’ defenses are at their highest potential to fight off infections and diseases, especially autoimmune diseases. The problem is that in today’s world, we are not eating right. Sure, we all know that fast food is bad for us but we eat it anyways. Some of us can say that we never eat fast food and think we eat healthy but the thing is that we are actually not. Today’s fruits and vegetables are not the same that they used to be in the past. With an increase in genetic engineering and pesticide usage, the nutrients that were once available are being depleted. Another problem is that when fruits and vegetables are cultivated, the longer they are not on their plant the more they lose their nutrients. The same goes for beef as for the genetic engineering and the feed they eat. As our food continues to be depleted in nutrients, then our body does not get the necessary nutrients to feed our immune system. In-turn, our defense system is non-effective and we are more susceptible to illnesses and diseases. This along with lack of exercise and inactivity is why we get sick.
So why are we constantly waiting to get an illness and then treat someone for that? Why don’t we try to maintain a good defense system and prevent these situations from happening? Well, in order to maintain a really efficient immune system now days, it is critical that we take supplements. I have searched hard for the best supplements to take and I finally found them. They are called glyconutrients. Glyconutrients are carbohydrates (sugars) but they are not the type that get stored and burned off as energy. They are short-chained carbohydrates whose primary role is to attach themselves to the outside of your immune system cells and help these cells to communicate with each other. Thus, it is safe and effective for people who have trouble with high blood sugar. This, along with a good multivitamin, increases the efficiency of the immune system and strongly decreases your chance of getting sick. If you or anyone you know are interested in obtaining some more information about this awesome product I found please give me a call or come on down and see for yourself.
I also wanted to let you know that we have a new promotion here at Nill Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center. From March 1 to May 1, for any new patient who comes in for a treatment, a FREE 15 minute massage will be given. So come on in, even if you are in pain or not, and take advantage of this opportunity. Remember that Chiropractic is good for not only treating pain but preventing it as well. Studies show that chiropractic can help the immune system and prevent other diseases like arthritis. We accept all insurance and if you’re a cash patient who doesn’t have insurance, or their insurance doesn’t cover chiropractic, call and ask how you can get 25% off of your bill. Until next time, I am Dr James P. Nill DC.
Take care and have a healthy day.
