From 1917-1918 there was a Spanish Flu pandemic. At that time chiropractic was a young profession – only 23 years old. Some chiropractors were struggling to stay in business. The Spanish Flu established their business. How you ask?
Chiropractors got fantastic results with the flu patients while those under medical care died like flies around the world.
Here are some statistics:
- In Davenport, Iowa MD’s treated 4,953 cases of the Flu with 274 dying, Chiropractors in the same city treated 1,635 cases with only one dying.
- In the state of Iowa, MD’s treated 93,590 patients, with 6,116 deaths (1 in 15). Chiropractors treated 4,735 with 6 deaths (1 in 789).
- Nationally Chiropractors treated 46,394 patients with influenza 54 died (1 in 886).
- In New York City that year for every 10,000 treated with the Spanish Flu 950 died. For every 10,000 patients treated “with drugless” methods 25 died.
- In Oklahoma during the same epidemic Chiropractors treated 3,490 cases of the Flu with only 7 deaths. There were 233 cases where MD’s cared for patients and gave them up for lost. Chiropractors saved all of these lost cases except for 25.

What can you do to stay healthy? Get movement, fresh air, and sunshine. This strategy worked effectively for the Spanish Flu 100 years ago.
Eat a good diet. Most importantly avoid sweets. Enough sugar can keep white blood cells, the front line of your immune system, from being able to engulf invading microorganisms for up to four hours.
Get adequate sleep. Our “natural killer cells”, a division of our immune system, do not work unless we get enough sleep.
Control you stress as much as possible. Hormones we make when we are stressed inhibit or impair the function of our thymus gland, an important organ of our immune system.
