Adjustments yield immune cell increase in HIV patients

HIV patients had a 48% increase in CD4 cells (immune cells) following chiropractic adjustments!

An important study was performed at the S id E. Williams Research Center of Life Chiropractic University. The researchers took a group of HIV positive patients and adjusted them over a six-month period. What they found was that the patients that were adjusted had an increase of forty-eight percent (48% ) in the CD4 cells (an important immune system component). These measurements were taken at the patients’ independent medical center, where they were under medical supervision for the condition. The control group (the patients that were not adjusted) did not demonstrate this dramatic increase in immune function, but actually experienced a 7.96% decrease in CD4 cell counts over the same period.

When we read the results of that study we were shocked that we hadn’t heard about it earlier that it didn’t make the headline news or was on the front page of every newspaper. Those are very impressive results with important implications!
