GERMS DON’T CAUSE DISEASE?
Germs, such as bacteria and viri are everywhere: on the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and everything we touch.
You probably have influenza, tuberculosis, tetanus, staphylococcus and other germs in you all the time. Yet, infections are relatively rare – most of the time we, and most people, are infection free. Why isn’t everyone sick all the time?
Because there is more to getting sick than breathing in germs. Even in the worst epidemic, the majority of the population never gets sick.
Professor Rene Dubos, one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century, rejected “germ equals disease” thinking. He said “Viruses and bacteria are not the sole cause of infectious disease, there is something else.”
What is that “something else?” A malfunctioning body causing low resistance to disease becomes fertile ground for germs!
A great way to improve resistance to disease and keep germs in their place is make you body function better by having your subluxations corrected. Chiropractic care has been shown to improve your ability to fight infection and if you or a loved one has an infection, chiropractic care is necessary so the body will be in a better state to heal itself.
