How Chiropractic Helps Those That Suffer from Allergies
Is it me, or does it seem like seasonal allergies have hit people harder this year? And I don't know about. you, but if I'm walking down Spui and sneeze or cough, I get a few stares lately. Whether you get a few sniffles and some sneezing or you are down for the count with every terrible allergy symptom known to man, it can make spring pretty unbearable.
There is no shortage of allergy medications on the market, but they come with their own issues. The majority of them cause drowsiness and other unpleasant side effects, leaving you barely able to function. Those that are made from a non drowsy. formula sound great, but if you have certain health conditions, like high blood pressure, you are out of luck and stuck either taking the ones that make you sleep sucking it up and dealing with your allergies sans medication.
That's no way to live.
What are Allergies?
When your immune produces histamines in response to an allergen that you encounter the physiological reaction that you experience is broadly referred to as allergies or hay fever. The allergens may be simple substances that normally do not affect people, but when your body is out of balance, it can cause a variety of problems.
Symptoms of allergies include:
Coughing or scratchy throat
Skin rash or hives
Anaphylaxis, severe, life threatening allergies can include swelling of the airways, tongue, and throat, inability to breathe due to blocked airway, and other dangerous symptoms.
The allergens can be something you come in contact with, like poison ivy, something you breathe in, like mold or dust, or it can be something you ingest, like strawberries or peanuts. Different people will have different allergies, but those who are allergic to the same things may not have the same reaction. Often a doctor or allergist will diagnose your allergies.
Chiropractic Care for Allergies
Chiropractic care have been found to be very effective for relieving allergy symptoms and even stopping allergies at their source. It reduces the severity of allergy symptoms as well as the frequency of occurrence. It does not work like allergy medications which have an anti-histamine effect and only work as a short term fix for your allergy symptoms.</p>
Chiropractic care help your body become more balanced so that it is better equipped for combating allergies at the source. When your spine is not aligned it can impact your nervous system leading to a variety of problems; including allergies. Your immune system can be affected, causing it to malfunction.
A chiropractor can help relieve the stress on your nervous system by aligning your spine. This takes the pressure off of nerves, allowing your immune system to function at a more optimal level. This makes it easier for your body to ward off infections while recognizing allergens as harmless.
When your immune system encounters allergens it doesn’t overreact to them. Instead, the reaction is much more subdued, or even nonexistent. Chiropractic has also been found to help asthma patients breathe easier. Asthma symptoms are diminished.
Chiropractic adjustments do not treat allergies or the immune system. The adjustments eliminate interference to the nervous system to allow the body to function and fight like as it was designed to.
Chiropractic care helps realigns the spine thus opening the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and the spine, in turn, allowing the body to heal itself. Chiropractic care is an amazing holistic approach to allergy treatment; it basically allows your body to do what it was meant to do.
Chiropractic evidence proves that the solution to most allergy problems already exists within the body!
