As the old saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers." This tends to be true, but you might also find that April showers allow for tree and plant pollen to flourish, causing you a host of bothersome allergy symptoms. You might have tried over-the-counter and prescription medications, but did you know that a visit to your local chiropractor might be the treatment you've been looking for?
Read more to learn why.
Allergies Are An Auto-Immune Condition
Why do you experience symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, and itchy throat when you're exposed to allergens such as pollen? It's because allergy symptoms are a result of your body fighting off foreign materials. When your body is triggered to react against itself, it's referred to as auto-immunity. In layman's terms, your body attempts to defend itself against perceived danger.
The problem is, the way that your body fights off perceived dangers is often far more bothersome than the trigger that's causing auto-immunity. For example, if you were severely allergic to peanuts, then your body might signal your airway to constrict shut, causing potentially fatal auto-asphyxiation. Fortunately, allergic symptoms that are triggered by pollen is rarely serious, although you might feel miserable at times.
Chiropractic Treatment Assists Your Immune System
You might be surprised to learn that the same medical practitioner who uses pressure on your spine and your muscles can also help to cure your allergy symptoms. This is because the key to your immunity lies within your central nervous system. Did you know that your central nervous system looks like inter-connected wires that weaves through your spinal chord?
When you're in a state of exaggerated stress, or when your health has been comprised due to poor nutrition, then your body isn't able to fight off disease like it should. When your nervous system has been compromised, then it will send signals throughout your body to respond in an exaggerate way to things such as pollen. The chiropractor can reverse this by manipulating your spinal column.
Specifically, the nerves will be stimulated and start sending messages to your heart to start pumping fresh, healthy blood through your body, especially through your lungs. The fresh blood contains the cells and minerals that your immune system needs to protect itself. You'll soon find that your body isn't as sensitive to allergen triggers like pollen as it was in the past. Best of all, chiropractic treatment is non-invasive, and it causes no known side-effects like over-the counter medications do.
Many people claim that chiropratic treatments are excellent immune system boosters. Perhaps you'll realize the same results after experiencing a few sessions for yourself.
Hello there! I'm Jessica Goodyear. I am an unofficial expert on cosmetic procedures--mostly because I've had a lot of them done. Some people judge me or think I'm fake, but I feel more like myself than I ever have before! It all started when I was a teenager. I broke my nose playing softball, and I had to have plastic surgery on my nose so that I could breathe properly. But my nose looked different afterwards, and I liked it better! Now I save up my money to get something done every few years. Whether it's teeth whitening or veneers, a little bit of liposuction, or new cheekbones, there's something so satisfying about letting your inner beauty shine out through your outer body. I started this site to help break the stereotypes about cosmetic surgeries and to talk about some of the health risks related to them. Check it out!
