Study Shows Link Between Antibiotic Use and Increased Risk of Breast Cancer

In a recent study conducted by the National Cancer Institute and by the Gustavus and Louise Pteffier Research Foundation, results found that the more antibiotics the women in the study had consumed, there was a substantially higher risk of breast cancer compared to those who consumed little to no antibiotics. After comparing 2,266 women, the authors found that women who took antibiotics for more than 500 days—or had more than 25 prescriptions—over an average period of 17 years had twice the risk of breast cancer as women who had taken no antibiotics. The risk was smaller for women who took fewer antibiotics, but even women who had between one and 25 prescriptions over an average period of 17 years had an increased risk; they were about 1.5 times more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than those women who didn't take any antibiotics. The authors found the increase in risk across all classes of antibiotics that they studied.

How does this relate to Chiropractic?

The immune system, like every other system in the body, is coordinated and controlled by the nervous system.  Specific immune organs including the spleen, thymus, and lymph nodes are all in communication with the master control - the brain - through nerves which connect them.  Picture a telephone wire.  During an immune response, the brain and the immune system “talk to each other” and coordinate the body’s response to the exposure.  This process is essential for maintaining homeostasis or balance in the body.  If the nervous system is not functioning properly, then the immune system cannot function properly, and the body becomes susceptible to bacteria, viruses, and illness which it can usually fight off. 

Along with correcting spinal misalignments and allowing for a stress free nervous system, the actual adjustment causes an immediate immune boost. A study conducted by Chiropractic & Osteopathy, found that disease fighting white blood cell counts were significantly higher just 15 minutes after chiropractic adjustment.  The study also found that increased levels of certain antibodies appear in the bloodstream up to 2 hours after an adjustment which suggests a priming effect of the immune system and a possible faster response to a new infection. 

Antibiotics may be necessary for treatment, but Chiropractic care can boost your immune system and become your first line of defense.

This Month's Testimonial

Spondylolisthesis and Loss of Curve in Neck

Prior to coming to Jupiter Family Chiropractic I was experiencing chronic pain in my back, shoulders and neck. My ability to perform at home, at work and meet my personal fitness goals were all suffering. I had been under chiropractic care previously, as needed, over the past several years for management of my spondylolisthesis, subluxations and the loss of curvature to my cervical spine.

When I became a new mom two years ago and eventually started back to work as an RN, I found it difficult to find the time or the finances to be able to keep up with chiropractic care. I was having a hard time with lifting and carrying my daughter. The pain in my lower back going from sitting to standing or when bending to work with patients was unbearable. I felt horrible and my whole body hurt when I got up every morning. I knew I had to get back in for regular chiropractic care.

I feel blessed to have found Jupiter Family Chiropractic and Dr. Helia.  Every interaction I have had, from the first moment I walked through the door has been welcoming and warm. They truly care about their patients’ well being and treat you like family. I am relieved to have found excellent & affordable chiropractic care with Dr. Helia. Scheduling is very flexible, in and out in no time & my daughter is welcome there as well when I need to bring her.

I have only been on my journey to wellness with Dr. Helia for 5 wks. I have experienced an increase in my mobility, decrease in pain, and I am able to function on a higher level at home, work and while working towards my fitness goals. Besides experiencing an overall improvement in my general well being, I gained a few inches in height, now that I can stand up straight again. My digestion and sleep are also better regulated as well. Couldn't ask for more in only 5 short weeks!  Looking forward to continued improvement in my health and wellness with Jupiter Family Chiropractic.
