However, sometimes our bodies aren’t receiving enough of the correct minerals and vitamins so we aren't capable of overcoming particular environments we are presented with, especially in these colder months. It is recommended that you receive 30 minutes of summer sunlight exposure on large body parts every day to ensure you’re not Vitamin D deficient. (Innatechoice.com, 2018)
Shorter and colder days means that we aren’t exposed to sunlight as often as required. Consequently, we aren’t absorbing enough Vitamin D that our body desires. Vitamin D is essential for our immune cells to ensure they produce adequate amounts of antimicrobial proteins in response to infection.(Dowd and Stafford, 2012).
Therefore this makes it vital that we supplement during these times to aid the body with overcoming the common respiratory infections we are experiencing but also delay any future infections (Ejpmr.com, 2018).
The combination of Chiropractic adjustments and Vitamin D supplement are another way to ensure your immune system is working to the best of its ability in these Winter months. Our chiropractors welcome any discussion you would like to have when you come in for your next adjustment.
