You might be wondering, what is my neuro-endocrine system? What if we told you that two of your most powerful systems in your body work together to keep you healthy? And that therefore, neurologically-based chiropractic care is the BEST way to keep this system fully functional? In this article we will explain both of those facts!
Your neuro-endocrine system the combination of your nervous and immune systems together. It controls groups of cells called neuro-immune cell units that are made up of both nerve and immune cells. They communicate with each other and other organs in your immune system, such as your spleen, tonsils, and lymph nodes. By using chemical messages to trigger the release of hormones, it coordinates a healthy immune response in your body. For example, when an “invader” comes into your body, these cells notify your brain of the intruder. Your brain then tells your adrenal glands to release the hormone cortisol to control the body’s immune response.
Most people want to know ways they can improve the health of their immune system. Based on what we just discussed, it’s clear that the health of our nervous system is essential to keeping our immune system functioning properly! Studies have looked at the relationship between spinal manipulation and the immune system. That research shows that spinal manipulation seems to trigger the activation of the neuro-endocrine system.
By fixing misalignments in the spine, we remove nerve interference to help the brain more accurately “see” what is going on in the body. Because of this, it can accurately trigger your immune system to keep you healthy! This enables the body to better respond and adapt to viruses or “invaders” that may come into your body. Overall, it allows the nervous and immune systems to communicate more clearly with one another, keeping you balanced and healthy!
