With the trees turning green, plants and flowers beginning to sprout, it means spring is approaching and allergy season will be in full bloom. Many people with allergies will begin to stock up on antihistamines and other medications to help them endure the onslaught of the symptoms. However, for allergy sufferers who don’t want to rely on medications for relief, chiropractic care offers a drug-free approach treatment of the symptoms.
Allergies occur when the immune system encounters an irritant and mistakes it as harmful, attacking it with far more ferocity than needed. The nervous system and immune system are closely linked and according to the Palmer College of Chiropractic, researchers have found that stress and allergies provoke similar inflammatory responses—and that stress exacerbates the immune system’s already hyperbolic response to allergens.
The close relationship between the nervous system and immune system is good news for chiropractic patients. By improving the communication between the brain and spinal cord, chiropractic care can help regulate and coordinate the body’s reaction to allergens.
A Doctor of Chiropractic can do the following:
1) Strengthen the immune system
2) Regulate stress hormones
3) Support the respiratory system
4) Recommend dietary and lifestyle changes
By improving communication between the immune, nervous and respiratory systems, chiropractic care can help patients weather allergy season—without relying on medications.
