Since 1999 there have been studies published in peer review journals that have outlined the effectiveness of our own immune systems in killing cancer cells. It has been a pretty cool ride. Greater understanding of the intelligence of the immune system, how it can so deftly increase specific immunoglobulins in order to counteract the environment of the body… the hostile environment.
That is the incredible, wonderful, job of the immune system. Perfectly designed to be able to crush your worst enemies… piercing the cellular membrane of viruses, bacteria, and cancer. It puts the value of the immune system in an entirely different light, the main protector of your entire body… all under the control of your central nervous system. Such a beautiful creation.
So about this nervous system. When asked what to do, when a patient shows up in my office feeling sick. My response is always:
- Get Adjusted
- High dose Vitamin C
- High dose probiotics
- High dose Vitamin D
- Possibly some other oils, supplements, depending on your goal
In this order we have at the top, the one thing that controls the immune system is being addressed, and below that we are addressing all of these things that support the immune system. So I put the adjustment first… before the support. Control over assistance so to speak.
In a study from Patricia Brennan, PH.D., leading a team of researchers, she conducted a study that found improved immune response in her test subjects following chiropractic treatment. The study specifically demonstrated the phagocytic respiratory burst of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes were enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors.
This has been my favorite study to quote out of any. The increase was directly related to atlas adjustments, and it took place within fifteen minutes, and it was a 10% positive change.
Let me make it clear what this looks like.
You show up with a sickness. Perhaps a virus, or maybe a bacterial infection. Perhaps you show up with a cancer that you aren’t even aware of.
We check and adjust your atlas. Within 15 minutes there is a 10% rise in the PMN Neutrophils in the body, and they convert to exactly the kind of cell you need to defeat any one of the above. Poly – morphic = many “possibilities”.
Another study –
Performed by Dr. Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New Yorks Preventive Medicine Institute and professor medicine at New York University. It showed the positive effect that chiropractic care can have on the immune system and general health.
Dr. Pero measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases. His initial three-year study was of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more. The chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than those people who had not received chiropractic care, and they had 400% greater immune competence than those people with cancer and other serious diseases. The immune system superiority of those under chiropractic care did not appear to diminish with age. Dr. Pero stated:
When applied in a clinical framework, I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important. We have never seen such a positive improvement in a group.
Get adjusted. Christmas in July is your chance to invite people to come get checked out for free. Hope to see you and those you care about soon!
Be well and Be blessed! Dr. E
