Allergies and Chiropractic: How Does it Work?

Did you know: Allergies can be a sign of a nervous system problem? 🧠

Allergies can be triggered by different airborne substances such as pollen, mold spores, or dust mites. When these substances enter the body, the immune system mistakenly identifies them as harmful and releases chemicals, such as histamine, to attack them. These chemicals trigger a variety of symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion… No fun for anyone. 😫

So how does the nervous system and chiropractic fit into the equation?

➡️A lack of communication between your nervous system and the body’s defenses (the immune system) can result in a weakened and inappropriate response toward airborne particles that are otherwise harmless. In order to make sure the brain, nerves and immune system are sending and receiving CLEAR and ACCURATE messages you have to REMOVE any tension and nerve interference through gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic gets rid of any nerve dysfunction running from your brain to your head, ears, eyes, nose, and throat. The result is a better functioning nervous system and body that can prevent allergies, or, at the very least, naturally lower your reactiveness to allergens.

As pediatric and family chiropractors, we don’t cure or “treat” allergies. Instead, we enhance the body’s natural immune system and ability to respond to stressors like allergens, bacteria, viruses 🦠 and more!

Get your family adjusted if you want to have fewer health problems with more freedom and joy this spring! 🚵‍♂️
