Sneezing, runny nose, and itchy red watery eyes are just a few symptoms that occur during spring allergy season in Chicago. I should know, because up until recently I was one of the nearly 45 million people in the United States suffering from allergies. Then I found chiropractic, and the rest, as they say, is history. In our last blog, we talked about the issues with over the counter 'remedies' and how you they are dealing with the symptoms without addressing the cause. Today we'll look into how chiropractic gets to the root of the problem:
Chiropractic care boosts the body's immune system. When the immune system is functioning at optimal performance, your body can fight off those invaders of foreign substances, such as pollen, dust and other allergens. The most common immune disorder is an allergic reaction that happens when the immune system overreacts to those allergens like pollen, pet dander etc. The natural way to allergy relief from your chiropractor is to release the stress (subluxations) on the nervous system so your immune system can function better and a lot more efficiently. Chiropractors remove those subluxations in the spine which are placing stress on the nervous system. When your body has these stresses removed it begins to naturally defeat those allergy causing chemicals you are subject to in your daily environment.
By stimulating the points outside the body it can change or set off reactions inside your body that can affect your immune system when these allergies start to occur. Like chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture works to lessen areas of the immune system that are being overstimulated from being exposed to allergens.
Nutritional and Lifestyle counseling
At Seaman Chiropractic, we carry proprietary blends by supplement companies meant to help with any and all aspects of allergies. For instance, Bromelain may reduce inflammation inside the nasal passages and may also be taken as a supplement. Dr. Seaman also offers lifestyle advice individualized for your specific allergies.
Even though the allergy season is about to get underway, that doesn't mean that you have to suffer through the symptoms or the supposed 'relief' of over the counter medications.
