Cold air makes life difficult. To start with, it makes breathing harder and affects articulation. Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that "cold wind" is responsible for a number of maladies, both seasonal and long-term. What this tells us is that simple things like wrapping up warm and drinking hot, nourishing liquids like tea actually make a huge difference during winter time. And if winter wellness starts with small, simple factors like this, then chiropractic and acupuncture should also be considered.
Your immune and nervous systems fight hard in cold weather; they are often worn down more quickly in winter than in other seasons, hence the seasonal cold, and the outbreaks of flu during cold months. Operating on the idea that the odds are slightly stacked against your nervous and immune systems during winter, holistic medicine attempts to tip the scale back in their favor. Using chiropractic adjustments to establish spinal alignment and balance, your nervous system is less encumbered. Acupuncture balances the body further by stimulating circulation, nourishing all parts of your body with nutrient and oxygen-rich blood and cycling away waste products.
