When the immune system becomes compromised, the body is unable to effectively fight ordinary infections. A suppressed immune system over time can cause these infections to become chronic. Two very commonly effected areas are the ears and sinuses. Standard medical treatment has been antibiotics, but this treatment is becoming increasingly controversial. Many patients have become frustrated because of the ineffectiveness in successfully treating chronic ear and sinus infections.
“After 40 years of pushing antibiotics for any ailment, physicians are now confronting bacteria that have built defenses against those same drugs. Some infectious bacteria that were once treatable are stronger and often deadly. The reappearance of highly infectious bacteria is caused in part by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics, but the resilience of bacteria also stems from the ingenious biochemistry of the microorganisms themselves. To survive microorganisms and fungi mutate into resistant strains.” Morton Walker, DPM
A number of studies have found that children who did not take antibiotics for ear infections recovered completely and had less recurrence than children who were regularly treated with antibiotics. In some countries children are never treated with antibiotics.
How NUCCA treatment can help
Normal immune system function is controlled and coordinated through proper communication between the brain and spinal cord. More specifically, the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is a specific division within the body’s nervous system which is responsible for the organization of the function of the organs, glands, and blood vessels. If the ANS becomes irritated because of a misalignment of the cervical spine, the immune response may be affected and the body would have less of an ability to fight infection.
Specific imaging studies of the cervical (upper neck) region are taken to locate a misalignment of the vertebrae. Insight Millenium technology is used to scan and measure the nervous system for possible irritation. If a misalignment has been found to affect the function of the ANS, then very specific gentle adjustments are made, by hand, to correct the misaligned vertebrae in the neck. After the adjustment has been made, follow up imaging studies and nervous system scans are taken to confirm a successful spinal correction.
