With the weather changing and holiday parties beginning to take place – it’s no wonder that our immune systems tend to take a hit in November. Whether it’s the change to our routine, the added alcohol or food intake or simply the time of year that’s taking its effect on us, it’s always wise to be extra vigilant to keep an eye on your health coming up to the end of fall, the beginning of winter.
While the natural response would be to ask your general doctor how to help you when you feel your immune system weaken, you may be surprised to learn that a trip to us, at NFWC, could have the same boost that you have been seeking elsewhere.

Simply put, there is a link between the alignment of the vertebrae and the body’s ability to function properly. When this alignment is off, the ability of the nerves branching from the spinal system to communicate with the brain is inhibited. When the brain cannot send or receive signals from the rest of the body then the likelihood of illness is increased. Makes sense, right? Regular trips to get a spinal realignment can keep your body functioning and fighting through the months where it is under the most attack from bacterias and illnesses that are common at this time.
