We’ve all probably been there. We were invited to a picnic, on a romantic springtime walk, or it’s time to hit the baseball field with the kids, and one of our first thoughts is our allergies. We may simply make a note to grab an extra pack of tissues and pop an allergy pill, hoping it will do the trick, or if our allergies are really bad, we’ll simply decline the invitation. It’s easy to feel like your allergies rule your life and to feel like this is the way it is always going to be. However, you don’t have to settle!
Chiropractic care can actually greatly alleviate your suffering and on the Kuwamoto Chiropractic blog, we’re going to tell you how.
Kick Your Allergies to the Curb — Possibly For Good!
What we all know as “allergies” begins as our bodies reaction to allergens that are either inhaled, ingested, or touched. When our body comes into contact with these substances, immunoglobulin, a type of antibody and histamines are released. In turn, the release of histamines cause allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, nausea, and even vomiting.
Why Not Just Pop A Pill?
You may be wondering, why not just pop a pill the next time your allergies flare up? Because allergy medicine doesn’t actually address the root of the issue and won’t help you to experience long-term allergy relief.
Finding Natural Allergy Relief With Chiropractic Care
Your allergies may actually be due to a miscommunication between your body and brain due to misalignment. Due to excessive sitting, a car accident, or other factors, our spine can become misaligned; this misalignment can create an impediment in your nervous resulting in flawed neuro-communication. Additionally, our immune system will not be able to function at it’s very best and respond to invading allergens — fixing the alignment of your spine will allow optimal communication and your immune system and provide relief from your allergies.
More Chiropractic Benefits For Relief
Allowing your immune system to function at full capacity is just the beginning to finding real relief from your allergies.
Stress Hormone Regulation
Have you ever noticed that your allergies seem to flare up at the worst times — particularly when you’re dealing with more stress or anxiety? Impaired body-brain communication will result in impaired regulation of cortisol and other stress hormones which can affect the effectiveness of your immune system.
Respiratory System Fortification
Restoring the brain-body connection will also allow your respiratory system to function more efficiently. With all of its abilities available, your respiratory system is able to handle the onslaught of air-borne allergens — allowing you to feel better even during the height of allergy season.
Experiencing spinal alignment provides allergy relief and even more benefits. Stay tuned for more blog posts to learn how chiropractic care and effectively integrate into your healthcare.
