Ugh, Does April Really Have To Be The Start of Allergy Season? (Hint: Nope) + A Special Invitation For YOU!
I thought I’d write something about allergies since, without fail, a number of new patients coming in during this time of year for a back or neck ache due to allergy symptoms are many times surprised to find that getting adjusted can help their allergies too.
Simply put, allergies are a reaction to something inside or outside of your body that your immune system is not able to process. Think of allergic reactions as a way for your body to get your attention. Something is not right and the culprit must be found! Many times, it’s a lot easier than we think!
If allergies are an overreaction to internal and external environmental factors that would otherwise not affect you, then why now? Usually it happens over time. Your body is not able to detoxify fast enough or unhealthy things begin to accumulate until a symptom or two pops up. Instead of going through an allergy checklist, it’s much easier to get a prescription or over the counter medication that will mask the symptom rather than getting to the root cause of why it’s happening in the first place.
WHAT DO ALLERGY SYMPTOMS LOOK LIKE?
HOW CHIROPRACTIC PRINCIPLES AND SPINAL ADJUSTMENTS HELP WITH ALLERGIES:
I’ve seen so many kinds of allergy symptoms. Probably more than you can imagine and maybe even those you can’t imagine. The one problem that I see is that the body is not in balance and is not able to heal itself due to nerve interference.
This is something that most patients, let alone doctors, would not think to treat. The philosophy of chiropractic teaches us how to get to the root cause of dis-ease via the spine because the nervous system is the center of all our bodily functions. Any blockages there should be the first place to look.
If your spine is aligned and symptoms are still prevalent then we can explore other options. But the first order of business would always be spinal adjustments and maintenance because it could be as simple as that.
I cannot tell you how many patients I’ve seen over my 31 years that have got off their allergy medications altogether just by bringing their body back to balance so they can “breathe” again. (So to speak, even though it’s so much more than that.)
It is my belief that if you do everything you can from a more holistic, natural, and drugless approach, then your body will thank you in the long run.
If you or someone you know suffers from allergy symptoms, please share this information, have the call or email me, or bring them to our Open Day on April 22 and I’d be happy to answer any questions.
See you soon.
Yours in Health,
