Have you found yourself or your child suffering more than usual from their seasonal allergies? It is more common than you may think. In fact, allergies are in the top 10 most common chronic illnesses category. More than 50 million people in the United States suffer from allergies. Typically, these allergies are treated with over-the-counter antihistamines, steroids, and avoiding the culprit of the allergic reaction all together. These medications can be hard on the body, cause drowsiness, or flat-out not work. What if we told you there was a more natural way to help your body manage your allergies?
Luckily for those who suffer from allergies, chiropractic is a great way to help manage your symptoms naturally. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help the immune system work efficiently and remove any nerve-blocks within your system. When your spine is not aligned properly, nerve blocks can occur, causing the immune system to weaken. When your immune system is weak, your body is more susceptible to foreign substances, sicknesses, and stress. This weakness within the immune system can cause your body to over-react to triggers such as pollen, dust, and animal dander. When you receive regular adjustments, your body can heal itself from the inside out.
Chiropractic adjustments are not the only way chiropractors can help treat allergies. They can also provide lifestyle adjustment advice. For instance, if you have a sensitivity to certain foods, such as gluten, that you are unaware of, they can help detect and treat these sensitivities as well. It is also known that dairy can increase mucus production, thus causing those who suffer from allergies to have more congestion. Chiropractors can help work with you and discuss alternatives and way to avoid these food sensitivities that can also cause hypersensitivity within the immune system.
Another way chiropractic can help treat allergies is through acupuncture. Triggering certain points within the body can help reduce symptoms of allergies. One of the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies is a runny nose. When mucus is being overproduced, congestion occurs. This congestion can lead to headaches, nausea, and trigger asthma as well. Through the use of acupuncture, this congestion can be relieved almost instantly. Regular acupuncture treatments in addition to regular adjustments can work wonders for those who suffer from allergies.
Lastly, those who are on multiple medications can benefit greatly from chiropractic. Chiropractors can provide an array of natural medication to help the body’s hypersensitivity and reduce allergy symptoms. We all know that prescriptions are expensive, and over time can cause adverse side-effects. Using natural medication can reduce the need for those expensive prescriptions.
As previously mentioned, often times asthma and allergies go hand-in-hand. Through chiropractic treatment, both of these conditions can be treated simultaneously. When allergy symptoms are reduced, asthma symptoms decrease as well. Asthma is treated through chiropractic in the same way that allergies are.
