The immune system is made up of a network of cells and proteins that defend the body against infection/s. It is made up of specialized organs, and chemicals that fight microorganisms, specifically that are bacterial and can cause infection/disease. The system keeps a record of every germ so it can recognize and destroy any microbes if they enter the body again.
Immune system abnormalities can lead to:
- Allergic diseases
- Autoimmune disorders
The Immune System

The health and variety of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract have been shown to have significant effects on overall health, including immunity. When gut health is optimized, it helps the body’s natural processes for detecting and fighting microorganisms. Simple ways to strengthen gut health include:
A healthy diet rich in a variety of whole foods and vegetables will promote diversity in the gut.
Probiotics can significantly help strengthen gastrointestinal health.
Get Out In the Sun
Being outside provides the microbiome vitamin D which helps fight inflammation and strengthens the sense of well-being.
Nerve Signal Optimization
The central nervous system has a primary role in gastrointestinal motility and overall balance. Proper spinal alignment will help blood and nerve synapse circulation.
Maintaining Body Balance

Chiropractic can provide expert treatment to restore spinal misalignment/s. This keeps the body functioning at an optimal level.
