The Link Between Chiropractic Care and Allergies
Pardon us, but we just figured that a sneeze was either in your distant past or your near future. During this time of year it’s almost unavoidable. Many Americans suffer from the symptoms of hay fever and allergies and the spring and summer months bring what borders on torture for those unfortunate folks. But where can one find relief without loading themselves up with drugs and antihistimines? Because allergies are simply your body’s overreaction to foreign substances and matter that it is sensitive to, allergies can be controlled by sending corrected signals to the immune system.
Though nobody truly understands why only certain people become allergic to what would be harmless substances to someone else, it is thought by many to be a misinterpretation of information by the body and the mind. The idea behind chiropractic care for the lessening of allergy symptoms is that by sending the right signals to the immune system, it will begin to react differently to environmental triggers. It is thought that misalignments in the spine cause irritation which is then misread and the reaction often includes allergic reactions.
Where many health professionals disagree to the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments for reducing allergies, many patients of ours have reported relief from hay fever and some food sensitivity problems and their symptoms.
