Chiropractic Care for Allergy Relief
By Donna Stark
Spring will make its appearance in a couple of weeks and with it comes warmer temperatures, blossoming flowers, and of course, those dreaded allergies. For some, those allergies are nothing but a minor annoyance, as they may only have to carry an extra tissue or two in their pocket. But for others, seasonal allergies can be absolutely unbearable! Fortunately, there are ways to manage the symptoms so that your life isn't totally disrupted and you can start doing so today by seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
How Bad Can it Be?
Allergy symptoms can vary in severity from day to day and from person to person, but will generally leave you in some state of discomfort. Take a look at some of the most common symptoms you may end up experiencing.
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
- Sneezing, coughing
- Watery, itchy eyes
- Scratchy or sore throat
- Facial pressure or pain
Chiropractic Care for Allergies
Whether your symptoms are mild or severe (or anything in between), there is a natural solution that can help get you through your days. Routine chiropractic care improves the way your body's nervous, immune, and respiratory systems communicate with each other, and that's important, because when the communication signals can travel without restrictions, the body can function at its best. It can expel the allergens easier, it can regulate histamine levels, and it can help maintain cortisol production. And do you know what happens when the body is able to do all of that? Well, your allergy attacks won't be so bad anymore.
Some Extra Tips
In addition to chiropractic care, there are some other things you can do that will help lessen the severity of your symptoms. Take a look at the following tips.
- Stay indoors during peak pollen levels and dry, windy days
- Keep your windows closed
- Check and clean all air filters in your home
- Take a shower and change your clothes after being outside
- Change bed linens regularly
- Vacuum all carpeted areas
- Wash hands and keep them away from your face
