Beating the Bugs - Cold and Flu’s
Have you ever wondered why some people are more prone to repeated colds and flus? How is it that even though we are all exposed to the same environment with the same "bugs," some immune systems have to work harder, therefore displaying more symptoms?Well, let's get one thing straight - symptoms aren't the problem. Coughing,watery eyes, sore throats, and low-grade fever are signs that your body is doing a healthyjob of expelling a virus or bacteria. "Bugs" are present everywhere, but the solution lies in your body's defense mechanisms, which are governed by your nervous system. If your nervous system is irritated by spinal pressure, your immune system becomes suppressed and will therefore have to work harder to stave off those "bugs"- and that means more symptoms.
Trying to ease symptoms once they arise does not affect the cause. In fact, medications that counter symptoms are directly inhibiting your body's best efforts to be healthy. If you had an army, would you sedate your strongest fighters because they were loud and obnoxious? Or would you give them better command to make them stronger and more efficient? If nerve pressure exists in the body, the strength of your immune system suffers, leaving the body open for attack by those always-present "bugs." Instead of medicating and sedating your best inner defenses, why don't you look to give them better command by ensuring that there is no nerve pressure in the body? Only then can the immune system function with the miracle of precision that you were born with.
