How Chiropractic Care May Be The Future For Atlanta’s Cancer Patients
Oct 13, 2016

Chiropractic care might just be the future for Atlanta’s cancer patients.

Recent studies show a strong correlation between healthy immune systems and the ability to fend off cancerous cells.

This information supports the connection between Chiropractic care and cancer treatment since the concept of Chiropractic focuses on providing holistic solutions that support overall health and wellness.

Supporting A Healthy Immune System

You immune system is one of the most critical components of your body because of its ability to prevent viruses and illnesses from developing.

In order for you to remain healthy, your immune system needs to be nurtured in order to fight off common forms of bacteria and illness, as well as more critical conditions like heart disease.

Unfortunately, even the healthiest of immune systems is not able to completely fight off cancer. Medical experts believe that cancerous cells are undetectable by the immune system, making it impossible for your body to generate the type of white blood cells that are necessary.

The good news is that there are new treatment solutions that are currently being designed and tested, which may help your immune system identify and eliminate cancerous cells.


This concept speaks to Immunotherapy and although this type of treatment has existed for years, doctors are now beginning to understand how they can use this technique to stimulate the immune system and address radicals that turn into cancerous cells over time.

One particular method researchers have used in order to further these solutions is through the creation of medications that are referred to as “checkpoint inhibitors.”

These particular drugs prevent cancer cells from spreading throughout your body by helping your immune system recognize when such cells appear. These medications have shown tremendous results in trails, which has allowed thousands of cancer patients to avoid life-altering treatment solutions like radiation and chemotherapy.

If these checkpoint inhibitors continue to demonstrate real progress in the fight against cancer, then the focus of the medical community will shift towards creating additional solutions that focus on managing a healthy immune system.

How To Create A Healthy Immune System

You can keep you immune system in tip top condition by maintaining a healthy diet that is full of vitamins and minerals. Exercising each week and getting plenty of sleep are also positive ways to maintain a healthy immune system.

What you may not know is that receiving Chiropractic Adjustments on a regular basis is also phenomenal for supporting a healthy immune system.

When your spine is adjusted, you are able to realign your vertebra and remove all excess stress from your nerves. This in turn allows more blood and nutrients to flow throughout your body, which helps boost your immune system.
