Cancer is primarily a disease of immunity, not genetics. Everyone makes 100s of cancer cells every single day. Your body is supposed to make the necessary amount of immune chemicals like interleukin, interferon, and T-helper cells in order to manage those cancer cells and keep you cancer free – or what we call a “Cancer-Killer.” This immune process is controlled by the nervous system.
A study was done to assess the power of an adjustment to improve cancer fighting interleukin-2 levels in the body. The study found that interleukin-2 functionality improved immediately following an adjustment.
Another study by Patricia Brennan Ph.D showed that when chiropractic care was applied to the thoracic spine, the response of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (white blood cells) taken from blood collected 15 minutes after was significantly higher than blood collected 15 minutes before and 30 and 45 minutes after. Both studies show that there appears to be an immune boost following an adjustment. This boost or “burst” is needed for our immune cells to destroy invading viruses and bacteria as well as deal with those 100s of new cancer cells every day.
Chiropractic does not have the multi-billion dollar/year research budget that the drug companies do, but when someone does assess the care, you quickly see why it is the leading source of natural health care in the world.
