Keeping Your Immune System Functioning Information Session

Did You Know?
Your nervous system housed within your spine controls all the functions of your body from muscle to organ, including your body’s immune system. Only about 3% of your nerves are for pain, the other 97% are for function. If your body is not functioning properly or there is interference to the nervous system it can affect the quality and strength of your immune system.

On April 22 at the Berkeley Heights YMCA, Dr. Jennifer Franz, a professional chiropractor, will be giving a short lecture on the effects of interference to the nervous and immune system. She will educate you briefly on your nervous system and the how the negative interference can be reduced and removed through simple and effective ways. If you’re coming here to the YMCA, you’re already taking one of the essential steps to boost your immune system. This lecture will provide a demonstration of a posture spinal check that will show you how a chiropractor would assess the function of your nervous system and how well your body can respond to stresses that can weaken your immune system.
