What goes around doesn't have to come around

What goes around comes around. But what if it didn’t have to?

Of course, I’m talking about the colds and flus that get around at this time of year. It’s the season when workplaces and schools become incubators of viruses. Everyone knows someone who is going through tissues at a prodigious rate. We all have an immune system, but what is it doing at this time of year?

Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for immune response

Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for immune response

Winter is an opportunistic time for viruses to take hold. Generally speaking, we spend less time outside because the weather is less pleasant. We get less fresh air, spending more time sharing air with others, and, importantly, less sunshine. The sun is also further away, so each drop of sunshine contains less vitamin D, meaning you are more likely to be deficient in one of the most important vitamins for immune response.

As vitamin D also regulates mood, a lack of it is likely to send you to the cupboard looking for sugar to lift your mood. Sugar may boost mood, but it weakens the immune system through multiple methods.

Another important aspect of immune response is proper functioning of the nervous system. Like it does for every other organ in the body, the nervous system coordinates communication for, and acts as a stimulant of, the immune system. Our team of Chiropractors are professionally trained in assessing, and removing, sources of interference to the nervous system. Removing interference to the nervous system is one more thing you can do to keep what goes around from coming around.  Book in to see us and have your nervous system checked!

To Your Best Health!
