Spring is in the air. Flowers are budding. Leaves are growing. Terrific, right? Unfortunately for many of us, when we hear “Spring is in the air,” our minds focus on runny noses, itchy eyes, and sneezing. You may be familiar with the fact that chiropractic adjustments can improve a lot of conditions. What you may not know is: chiropractic treatment can have a positive impact on allergies and asthma too. If you’re more likely to grab a handful of tissues than stop and smell the flowers, you need to see how chiropractic care helps with allergies.
The Immune System Link
Research shows, that there is a direct link between the nervous system and the immune system. When your chiropractor removes nerve interference, that will allow your immune system to work optimally.
So, if your immune system is functioning at its best then it will be able to keep out the invaders that make you sick, like pollen, mold or dust. It will work right and instead of making you sicker, it will help you to stay well. That means that being in alignment can help symptoms you may be having from seasonal allergies.
What Causes Allergic Reactions?
Did you know: our immune system recognizes and removes harmful substances from your body? Inflammation, sneezing, coughing, and vomiting are methods the immune system uses to expel any dangerous substance ingested by you.
However, an allergic response is when your immune system activates against a substance that is usually considered harmless. Essentially, the allergic reaction is caused not by the substance itself but by your body’s interpretation the substance is potentially harmful.
Chiropractic evidence proves that the solution to most allergy problems already exists within the body. Chiropractic adjustments do not “treat” allergies or the immune system. However, therapy does remove interference to the nervous system to allow the body to function and fight like it was designed to do.
Remove the interference and people are given the freedom to heal without drugs and chemicals.
For your chiropractor to help keep your body’s ability to heal at its optimal level you need to have regular wellness adjustments. Otherwise, your body could go right back into a state of dysfunction, which can make you more susceptible to sickness or disease. We suggest regular exercise and eating a proper diet to keep your immune system strong as well.
