Have you ever wondered why you have allergies, what causes them and how to rid yourself of the symptoms? I too have thought those exact questions. Research shows the allergens, (i.e. peanuts, pollen, mold, etc.) are not the problem, but it is your immune systems misguided attack on the body. An allergen, according to WebMd, is a substance the body sees as harmful that isn’t usually harmful. The immune system recognizes allergens and views them as invaders and in an effort to rid the body of said invaders the immune system attacks the body by creating mast cells, which release histamines. The histamines are responsible for allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, coughing, difficulty breathing, etc.
My next question to you is…have you ever thought to try chiropractic adjustments for allergy relief? Strange, I know especially since chiropractic is just for back and neck pain right? Actually chiropractic care is designed to relieve the body of interference to the nervous system. By removing said interference the immune system can work more efficiently. Nervous system stress is caused by subluxations, improper alignments of spinal vertebrae creating irritation to the spinal nerves. When the body is free of nervous system interference it can more effectively control the body’s response to “allergens”, the release of histamines.
So, I say to you that a healthy, subluxation free spine is beneficial not only to those suffering from neck and back pain, but also to those suffering from allergies and other ailments. If you are experiencing symptoms of allergies stop by Garden Chiropractic to check your alignment, get adjusted and start the process of relieving allergy symptoms.
