Why is Upper Cervical Care so Effective?

Upper cervical chiropractic is effective because it goes straight to the heart of your immune system by improving how your brain communicates what needs to occur in order to protect you from dangerous germs.

If your neck vertebrae aren’t aligned properly, the major nerves that control your immune system will not be receiving the instructions they need in order to do their jobs properly.

On the other hand, when your nervous system has a free, uninterrupted pathway to regulate all the different aspects of your immune system, it can fend off the inevitable threats that affect all of us this time of the year.

In fact, several studies have been carried out in recent years that have shown that Upper Cervical Chiropractic treatments on a regular basis can significantly reduce ear infections, colds, and other common winter ailments by nearly 200%.

Though the study size was small, preliminary results suggest that chiropractic adjustments of the upper cervical spine may increase the CD4 levels in HIV positive individuals. These results suggest that follow-up studies of the link between the nervous system, immunity and the upper cervical region are well warranted The Effects of Specific Upper Cervical Adjustments on the CD4 Counts of HIV Positive Patients Jeffrey L.

Statistics reflect a most amazing, almost miraculous state of affairs. The medical profession was practically helpless with the flu victims but chiropractors seemed able to do no wrong.” “In Davenport, Iowa, 50 medical doctors treated 4,953 cases, with 274 deaths. In the same city, 150 chiropractors including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic, treated 1,635 cases with only one death.” “In the state of Iowa, medical doctors treated 93,590 patients, with 6,116 deaths - a loss of one patient out of every 15. In the same state, excluding Davenport, 4,735 patients were treated by chiropractors with a loss of only 6 cases - a loss of one patient out of every 789.Why? The answer is reasonably simple. Chiropractors got fantastic results from influenza patients while those under medical care died like flies all around.” “Statistics reflect a most amazing, almost miraculous state of affairs.

These figures are exact, for in that city these are reportable diseases.” “In the same epidemic, under drugless methods, only 25 patients died of influenza out of every 10,000 cases; and only 100 patients died of pneumonia out of every 10,000 cases.
