Allergies got you down?

Did you know? Chiropractic care may help reduce your allergy symptoms!

Spring is here. Winter is slowly coming to an end. While most of us are excited about the warmer weather, green grass and flowers blooming… others are suffering. Seasonal allergies affect more than 50 million Americans every year. People who suffer from allergies dread spring time because their symptoms can get unbearable.

Allergic rhinitis is another term we use to describe or diagnose individuals who are sensitive to allergen from tree pollen, grass or weeds or airborne mold spores which are prominent in the springtime.

If you fear spring time because of your allergy symptoms perhaps it’s time for you to consult a chiropractor. Chiropractic care may help reduce your allergy symptoms!

What are allergies?

When the human body detects a foreign object/substance/germ/bug… really anything that is not natural to your human body, your immune system will fight to remove this foreign object from the body to protect it. This is assuming the body is functioning correctly. The allergens can be something you come in contact with, something you breathe in, or something you ingest. When your body is in protection mode it will create inflammation, mucus for example and try to remove the foreign object by coughing or sneezing. It really is quite amazing.

Symptoms of allergies include:
Runny nose
Stuffy nose
Sneezing
Cough or scratchy sore throat
Itchy eyes
Headache
Swelling
Skin rash or hives
GI/GU like diarrhea
Nausea
Fatigue

Chiropractic is all about correcting misalignment in the spine to relieve pressure on the nervous system. When we create alignment and balance in our nervous system, the body functions at 100%. A misalignment in the spine blocks the ability of the body to heal, to respond to stress like allergens in the air. All these things weaken your body’s immune system. By getting a chiropractic adjustment you can improve your immune function by restoring function to your nervous system. This ultimately helps your whole body!

The medical world has millions of allergy medications for Americans to sift through. None of these are perfect and most have their own issues. A majority of them cause drowsiness which can leave you unable to function, what’s the point then?

Call Healthmax today and we’ll make sure you’re aligned and your immune system is functioning at 100%, so your body can react properly to allergens in the air and/or can reduce the negative reaction to the perceived allergens.
