Seasonal allergies affect more than 17 million adults and 6 million kids.
Allergies vary from person to person all are on the immune system’s inflammatory reaction to a substance it considers foreign. Seasonal or not, allergies are the result of an exaggerated response by the immune system to substances that it recognizes as foreign.
If an individual is allergic to a substance, the immune system produces a specific antibody known as immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to that substance (such as pet dander, dust, pollen, foods). This reaction then produces symptoms of an allergic reaction.
Allergy Relief is only temporary and relieves symptoms by suppressing them.
The strength of both the immune and respiratory systems depends largely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly.
When there are interruptions, in this communication such as misalignments of the neck or back, an individual’s immunity may be compromised. The upper cervical joint irritation can even produce an allergic asthmatic reaction.
Chiropractic Manipulation can help reduce allergy symptoms from chronic seasonal allergy sufferers. Both traditional chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression can be helpful for allergy relief.
Stronger immune system adjustments may also help regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during allergy season. The majority of allergies involve the release of inflammatory producing substances such as histamine.
If you are one the millions of Americans who suffer from a wide variety of allergies. Chiropractic Care may be a better way to minimize your allergy symptoms. A Chiropractor can help identify any underlying neck or back misalignments which may be compromising your immune system. Furthermore, they can help you determine the best practices and eating habits to keep your allergic reactions at bay.
