Don't let Allergies Keep You Stuck Inside
By Donna Kostiew
The weather is starting to warm up and the beautiful changes are all around us. But as winter winds down and gives way to spring, millions of allergy sufferers know exactly what to expect and start preparing for some miserable weeks ahead. Seasonal allergies can knock anyone down, but they are especially hard on those who like to stay fit and exercise while outdoors. Sneezing, watery eyes, and a few sniffles can be an annoyance to any kind of outdoor workout, but oftentimes, it can be even worse! Add itchy eyes, fatigue, headaches, and difficulty with breathing and it’s no wonder why so many outdoor enthusiasts call the upcoming weeks a season of misery.
What are Allergies?
Allergies occur as a result of a reaction of the body’s immune system. When a person encounters allergens in their environment, the immune system reacts in a manner that produces histamines in response. The source of the allergens can vary widely and don’t always have the same effect on the people around you. What causes your eyes to water and brings you to sneeze may not even bother the person sitting next to you. But what is similar is that most allergy sufferers will respond positively to chiropractic treatments. That’s because when your body is out of balance, your allergies often get worse. Here are some of the symptoms that allergies can cause.
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Itchy, watery eyes
- Scratchy throat
- Difficulty breathing
Chiropractic Care for Allergies
Receiving chiropractic care for proper spine alignment will help your nervous and immune systems become more balanced. The adjustments help to regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during this season of misery. So instead of overreacting to these prevalent outdoor allergens, the body’s reaction will be more subdued, and quite possibly, could even become non-existent over time.
