Stay Healthy This Christmas                                                               Article of the Week Nov 20-24, 2017

Last week I talked about the decision of whether or not to get a flu shot.  This week I want to make sure you understand how important your adjustments are in preventing the flu this season, and if you get sick, how important it is to get adjusted in order to recover as quickly as possible.

                Did you know that Dr. Ron Pero who was chief of cancer prevention at the New York Preventative Medicine Institute did a  study that found that people under long-term chiropractic care  were found to have 200% greater immune competence than those  who do not get adjusted, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer or other serious diseases.  Dr. Pero concluded, “chiropractic may optimize whatever genetic abilities you have so that you can fully resist serious disease...I have never seen a group other than this to show a 200% increase over normal patients”.

Simply by staying under chiropractic care your immune system functions 200% better than if you weren't getting adjusted!

Nowhere was this more apparent than during the flu pandemic that broke out 100 years ago in 1918.  Did you know that 20 million people died worldwide, with approximately 500,000 in the United States and 50,000 in Canada?  The flu virus was brought back by soliders returning from war and Quebec and Labrador were hit particularly hard with certain villages being completely wiped out!

Chiropractic's role in preventing illness was discovered in the state of Iowa where medical doctors treated 93,590 flu patients with 6,116 deaths; a loss of one patient out of every 15 treated.  In the same state, 4,735 patients with the flu were treated by chiropractors with only 6 deaths; a loss of one patient out of every 789!!!  If I was a patient suffering with the flu I would definitely want to be under the care of the doctor who is losing one patient out of 789 rather than the doctor who was losing one out of every 15.

There is nothing magical or mysterious about why chiropractors have success at improving immune system function.  Your immune cells that attack and kill viruses and bacteria are controlled by your nervous system.  Your immune system is stimulated and enhanced when you remove interference to your nerve system.

With the holidays fast approaching, there are all kinds of things that we are exposed to that will weaken and compromise our immune systems such as increased stress and poor dietary choices/too much sugar.  Nobody wants to be sick over the holidays, so start making choices now that will ensure your immune system trumps whatever bugs are in the air.

Stay on track with your adjustment schedule and make sure you schedule make up appointments if you miss.  Make sure you are taking extra vitamin D3, get enough sleep and avoid smoke, alcohol and sugary treats which deplete and ravage your immunity.

While others around you are succumbing to sickness this Christmas, take steps now to stand apart from the crowd!

Yours in Health,


Dr. Tim

For the first time in 10 years I didn't have a headache when I woke up - after only one adjustment!

Highly recommend Grace Chiropractic. Their approach to chiropractic care is truly life changing. Myself and my family have all been customers of Grace and have had excellent experiences. Since starting my program with Dr. Tim I have experienced significant relief and continue to receive treatments weekly!

I have been seeing Dr. Tim and his team since December 2016. I am grateful for every adjustment I've received. Instead of just treating your current ailment, Dr. Tim goes after the overall health of your spine and nervous system as you will learn at your info session. I came to Dr. Tim with tingling hands and numbness in both my arms, not only has this improved but I'd say by February I was feeling the best I've felt for the past 7 years.....body, mind and soul. And I have my Grace team, my denne roll and the few stretches Dr. Tim has given me to thank for it! So what are you waiting for.....give my Grace family a call today....you will not regret it!!

I have been attending Grace Chiropractic for many years now. Dr Tim was the first chiropractor I saw, and he is is much more than just a chiropractor. Dr Tim and the rest of the office staff are so focused on the well being, mind, body and soul, of each of their patients. You never walk into the office without a warm greeting, and you always leave with an uplifted spirit. Dr Tim not only makes adjustments and corrects any pain, but he gives you the tools to adjust your lifestyle to ensure you are the healthiest version of yourself. I am very grateful to all the staff at Grace Chiropractic!
