Boost Immunity Naturally with Chiro Care!

The following are clinical studies or documented cases which have shown that Chiropractic care naturally boosts the immunity of patients by 200% or more.

a) Author Katie Gilbert’s great article, “Immune Boost: This is a Spinal Zap covering how immune function is greatly improved with regular chiropractic care” was published in Psychology Today 24 August 2006. It contained the following Interesting paragraph on the flu:

“Chiropractic care was first linked to improved immunity during the deadly flu epidemic of 1917 and 1918. The funny thing was: Chiropractic patients fared better than the general population. This observation spurred a study of the field. The data reported that flu victims under chiropractic care had an estimated 0.25 percent death rate, a lot less than the normal rate of 5 percent among flu victims who did not receive chiropractic care.” This equates to Chiropractic patients having a 20 fold (20 times better) result.

b) The study performed by the chief of cancer prevention at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University – When interviewed, Ronald Pero PhD, stated in his 3 year study he found that the 107 chiropractic patients had a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and in fact a 400% greater immune competence than other people who had cancer or other serious disease. Further he found that the immune system superiority of those under chiropractic care did not diminish with age. Dr. Pero commented, “I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group experience a 200% increase over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important.” Specifically the study demonstrated that the cells responsible for engulfing and destroying viruses, bacteria, parasites and cancer cells are anywhere from 2 times to 4 times more active in people who get regular chiropractic care. Scientifically the study demonstrated that the “phagocytic respiratory burst of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes were enhanced in people that had been adjusted by chiropractors.” Later it was commented by other parties that the study should have taken into account the diet of the patients.

c) A small study published in Chiropractic Research Journal, 1994; 3(1) showed that Chiropractic adjustments increase immune cell counts 48% in HIV+ patients. At the same time for the control group who did not receive any Chiropractic care the immune cell counts actually fell 8%.  So the patients receiving the Chiropractic care were very much better off for it.  Although this was a small study, it shows promise for those with immunity issues.

For all disease the central nervous system plays a major role in healing, chiropractors are the only professionals specifically trained to locate and adjust subluxations thus removing nerve interference. Chiropractors generally tend to have approx 3 times as many class hours (USA numbers are some 320 hrs vs some 112 hrs) on neurology as the medical students’ course.
