Chiropractic Care and Regulating Allergic Reactions
So many of us are afflicted with the troubles of allergies when the nice weather begins. Whether it is pollen, sap, grass, or any other allergen, these tricky substances have the ability to work their way into our body and trigger so many different kinds of allergic reactions. This significantly reduces our body’s immune response and deteriorates the condition of our overall immune system when creates a sort of positive feedback system as more allergens enter our body.
The most common way to treat allergies is with certain medications that target different allergic reactions. These medications are sometimes ineffective and have negative consequences in different organs, like the liver and the kidneys. To avoid these negative consequences, patients can turn to chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care for allergies?
You bet! The immune system and the nervous system are very closely intertwined, and the interaction between these two body systems is extremely frequent. To a degree, the nervous system regulates the immune system’s ability to form protect the body from allergens and if the activity in the nervous system is inhibited, then the immune system is not functioning at the highest level possible. This is where chiropractic care comes in.
If there are problems within the nervous system, then chiropractic care can alter the musculoskeletal system to align bones and muscles properly and encourage adequate functioning of the nervous system. An improperly aligned spine may not allow signals to be transmitted to and from different parts of the body and part of the body that is particularly dependent on receiving proper signaling is the immune system.
The immune system is quite dependent on environmental input and the nervous system can turn environmental input into different impulses that are sent throughout the body. This input is crucial for the immune system to understand what response needs to be formed and how different allergens are taken care of. With chiropractic care, patients can improve their immune response, reduce the frequency of allergic reactions during the spring and summer months, and improve their musculoskeletal health and their nervous system functioning overall.
