Chiropractic allergy solution
One treatment you may not have considered is to work on your spinal health with chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care helps bring the body into full health which assists with just about any area of health. The spinal column is a like a superhighway of all the information needed for the body to function. When that information is blocked or inhibited in any way, it is as if an accident has slowed traffic down.
What are allergies?
When your body comes across a foreign body it determines to be unwelcome, it responds to expel it. This is usually a beneficial thing because the immune system is good at determining when something is dangerous to you, like a toxin, bacteria, or virus, and will then jump into action to evict it. Other times, like with a heart transplant, the immune system is correct that the new heart is a foreign body, but is acting against your best interest in reacting to it.
Nobody is quite sure why, but at other times, the immune system will treat benign things, like pet dander, pollen, or peanuts, as dangerous toxins. The body creates a chemical called immunoglobulin E (IgE) to expel the unwelcome yet nontoxic guest. The sneezing, coughing, and other responses are meant to eject the allergen.
Chiropractic care for allergies
But what about longer term? One thing to consider is chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care can assist with allergies in some key ways. First, it is bad information that tricks the body into treating perfectly safe elements as dangerous, so improving communication between your brain and the other parts of your nervous system will eliminate some complications.
Another factor is that an important gland in regards to allergy reaction, the adrenal gland, has its root in the T9 vertebrae. Your adrenal gland produces the anti-inflammatory chemical cortisol, which can help improve reaction to histamine. Histamine is what causes a lot of the negative allergic symptoms so improving this adrenal gland functioning can help. Chiropractic care can be an important part of an overall strategy to improve reactions to allergens over time.
