If you’re like me, germs aren’t something you really like to talk about, but today, let’s just talk about them so there is no misunderstanding about which ones are good and which ones are bad.
Did you know that germs by themselves are NOT always bad for your body? Now I am not saying germs are always good for you either.
Most people have been raised to believe that germs will make you sick, but that’s only partially true. There are many “good types” of germs, or (good) bacteria, that can do things that benefit your body.
For instance, that lactobacillus acidophilus in your yogurt is a good “gut” germ that aids your body with digestion.
Now don’t get me wrong. There are other germs that are harmful, but they need a hospitable host to allow them to “thrive”, “grow” and cause disease and illness. When our bodies are weak - due to poor nutrition, lack of sleep or nervous system stress and interference, they are the perfect breeding ground for germs that cause colds, flus and a variety of other ills.
So here’s the solution most people never think about. Regular chiropractic care, along with our advice on healthy eating, exercise and stress-free living, can help you and your family to build a strong defense against the BAD, unwanted germs.
I’ve learned one thing. Taking a proactive approach to your health means that “bad” germs won’t thrive, but you will!
