Allergies can affect your quality of life, especially if you suffer from terrible allergy symptoms that make life unbearable. Whether you get a few sniffles or find yourself sneezing constantly, allergies are tough to deal with, and while you can turn to allergy medications, there is a better solution you can try; chiropractic care. 

Medications can cause drowsiness and other unpleasant side effects, but chiropractic care can provide results without any adverse effects. 

Immune System Response

When your immune system produces histamines in response to an allergen, the physiological reaction you experience is called an allergy. Symptoms can include sneezing, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, stuffy nose, skin rash or hives and coughing, for example. Allergens can be simple substances that may not normally affect people, but when your body is out of balance, allergens can cause a variety of problems. In severe cases, allergies can cause life-threatening symptoms like airways, tongue and throat swelling and the inability to breathe due to a blocked airway.

Allergens can be something you come into contact with or something you breathe in, and it can also be something you ingest. Poison ivy, mould and strawberries are all examples of allergens. 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Allergies?

While more studies are being conducted, chiropractic treatments have been found to be very effective in relieving allergy symptoms. In some cases, chiropractic treatments can even stop allergies at their source. Your sessions can reduce the severity of your allergy symptoms and the frequency of occurrence. 

A chiropractor can help your body become more balanced to make it better equipped for fighting against allergies at the source. A misaligned spine can impact your nervous system, leading to several problems, including allergies. A misaligned spine can also affect your immune system and cause it to malfunction.

Relieve Stress

Your chiropractor will help relieve the stress on your nervous system by aligning your spine, which will take the pressure off your nerves and allow your immune system to function more optimally. This will make it easier for your body to ward off infections and will recognize allergens as harmless because it will not overreact to them. The reaction will be more subdued.

Additionally, chiropractic care can help asthma patients breathe easier, and asthma symptoms may diminish altogether. 

Whole Body Wellness

Chiropractic care promotes whole-body wellness and is more than just spinal manipulation. A chiropractor will take the time to teach you corrective exercises, stress relief and nutrition. They will treat your entire system, which can help you become allergy-free. They will create a whole-body treatment plan, and following it thoroughly and consistently will provide results. The program will outline how to destress and rest because the more you take care of yourself, the healthier you will be, and allergies may quickly become a thing of the past.
