Allergy is a recurring problem plaguing most people of this world. Every person under the sun is allergic to something or the other. The problem occurs when people get allergic to common things such as dust, dirt and regular germs. These people usually have chronic bouts of cold, sneezes, watery eyes and other problems.
The first solution that comes to mind in these conditions is an aspirin or an antihistamine. But most people do not know that proper chiropractic care can also help reduce allergies apart from back and neck pains.
The Nervous System Is The Key:
Research has shown that a misaligned nervous system and irregular nervous signals can affect the immune system. The result is getting allergic to common health hazards which can be easily countered by an otherwise healthy immune system.
Usually most people consider pets, chemicals or toxins to be the cause behind allergies but the nervous system, hormones and toxins of the body are just as responsible. When your body mistakes something as harmful, your immune system stimulates the body. The body creates certain antibodies that fight theses foreign elements. It is when the large amounts of histamines and the other chemicals get released they trigger cascade of the allergic symptoms that effect not just the respiratory system but the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system and even your skin.
The common signs of being allergic are weight gain, depression, headaches, fatigue, arthritis, runny eyes, breathing difficulties, sore throat, recurrent coughs, mental fogginess, digestive difficulties, muscle aches, being hyperactive, skin rashes and learning and memory difficulties (especially in children).
How Does Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care helps in keeping the body active and attaining its peak performance. As current research has proven the link between immune system and allergic reactions, chiropractic care boosts the immunity which enables the body to ignore regular dusts and pollens without causing a massive reaction to them.
The chiropractor also helps in removing Subluxation, which is the condition where due to some misalignment, the vertebra starts to pinch on nerves forcing them to send wrong signals to the brain and the body to release undesired chemicals and antibodies. Spinal alignment and removal of Subluxation can effectively treat or prevent allergic responses to certain elements.
Following Are Some Problems Chiropractic Care Can Help With:
- Chronic asthma.
- Choric bronchitis.
- Frequent cough and cold.
- Help the body overcome allergies caused by dust and dirt.
Improper nervous responses are also caused by stress. In today’s world, almost each person is stressed due to one fact or the other. Chiropractic care has been proven to remove stress from the nervous system and help the body relax. Thus the immune response of the body comes down to normal levels. Many people have reported that chiropractic care helped in the reduction of their chronic allergy issues.
So if you or someone you know is suffering from chronic allergies, chiropractic care might be the way to go. Just make sure you take the help of a licensed and experienced chiropractor and your days of itching, runny nose and watery eyes will soon be a thing of the past.
