Laveen Chiropractor knows that allergies can make everyday life a misery. Unwelcome symptoms like itchy eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, or a skin rash can be the consequence of a simple walk in the garden, a play date with Fluffy, a shellfish stew, or even something as small as a nut. To make things worse, for some of us allergic reactions can progress from just plain irritating to dangerous and life-threatening as our air passageway becomes constricted and we have a difficult time breathing. It may even seem to you, from time to time, that your environment is a pretty unfriendly place and that the world around you is, in fact, out to get you!
Why does your body react, or rather overreact, to the environment with such an intense allergic reaction while other people appear to be unaffected? It’s a great question. The answer is that some individuals, like you, have a hyperactive immune system that literally “freaks out” when they are confronted with common substances such as pollen, dander, shellfish, or nuts.
Can your chiropractor in Laveen help with your allergy symptoms? You may be surprised by the answer. Even though chiropractic care doesn’t treat allergies, many individuals notice that they experience ease from their allergy symptoms after receiving chiropractic adjustments. The reason for this is because chiropractic adjustments affect the complete nervous system, including the autoimmune system. When there’s a disruption in the nervous system, in conjunction with other problems, the autoimmune system, whose responsibility it is to assist us in adapting and responding appropriately to our environment, can become under-active or overactive. In the case of your allergies, the problem is the latter. Because chiropractic adjustments reduce or remove disturbances in the nervous system and bring back balance and harmony to the body, the treatments bring that same balance and harmony to the auto-immune system as well. A healthy immune system responds appropriately to commonly named allergens in the environment.
So, as pointed out above, your chiropractor doesn’t actually treat allergies. You could say, rather, that a decrease in your allergies is simply a part of a healthy nervous system. Make an appointment, today, to see your chiropractor and get back into harmony with your environment.
