Did you know that germs by themselves are not always bad for your body?
Many have been raised to believe that germs will make us sick, but that’s only partially true. There are many good types of germs, or bacteria, that benefit the body.
For instance, that lactobacillus acidophilus in your yogurt is a good “gut” germ that aids in digestion.
Other germs are harmful, but they need a hospitable host to allow them to thrive and cause illness. When our bodies are weak due to poor nutrition, lack of sleep or nervous system interference, they are the perfect breeding ground for germs that cause colds, flus and a variety of other ills.
Regular chiropractic care, along with our advice on healthy eating, exercise and stress-free living, may help to build a strong defense against unwanted germs. Taking a proactive approach to your health means that “bad” germs won’t thrive, but you will!
