Every day we have cancer cells produced throughout the body. Our immune system is programmed to seek, identify and destroy these cancer cells that occur naturally. When the immune system is depleted by stress, poor nutrition, lack of physical exercise, toxicity and improper neurological input, cancerous cells can divide quickly.


Our lifestyle (diet, exercise regimen, stress, etc.) and the health of our nervous systems play an integral role in boosting one’s immune function. These factors also promote healing that can help play a deciding factor in the development of cancer.

It should be noted that there is no medical or scientific research claiming that a chiropractor can heal or treat cancer. A healthy nervous system could play an integral role in preventing the development of cancer cells, but again, there’s no direct evidence to support this theory.

That being said, there are a number of health benefits that come from working with a chiropractor, so many of which have likely yet to be proven. Schedule a consultation with our South Naperville chiropractors to learn more about the many effects that chiropractic care can have on the body, and start seeing the differences in your overall health and well-being.
