Why Do We Have Allergies?

Do you struggle with allergies? 
Do you dread of the oncoming allergy season?

As we all know allergy season is here, and along with the warmer weather comes all the yellow stuff. We see the signs and symptoms of the season already with itchy eyes, runny noses, scratchy throats, and sneezing, especially when it rains. On top of the regular stresses in our daily lives, our immune system is now working double time dealing with all the allergens in the air. If we’re going to fight off allergies, now is the time our immune system needs to be running at its best. Your immune system fights allergies!

Most people are not aware that the nervous system controls all the systems and functions of the body — unless they are a chiropractic patient of course — and that includes your immune system. Your immune system, has to constantly fight off foreign substances. Allergens are simply foreign substances that can cause inflammatory or histamine responses in the body even though they are not harmful. Your immune system is supposed to recognize the difference between harmful substances like viruses and bacteria, and non-harmful substances such as pollen and dust. When functioning properly your immune system creates protective proteins called antibodies to defend against the harmful substances. When the immune system is not functioning properly it can detect non-harmful allergens in the body, believe they are harmful even though they aren’t, and create those same antibodies. Antibodies are meant to attack and destroy harmful substances, but when the immune system builds and defends itself with antibodies against non-harmful substances it causes those unnecessary allergic responses we call allergies. Sounds complicated, right? Well, it’s not for your nervous system, especially when it does not have any interference from subluxations or misalignments in the spine.

Subluxations or misalignments in the spine can cause interference in the nervous system. Subluxations, especially near the base of the head where the brain stem is located, can directly interfere with the immune system and the body’s ability to fight off sickness and properly control and coordinate all of the systems of the body. If there is interference in the nervous system’s ability to control the immune system, your body can over produce things like mucus that can build up and eventually cause sinus infections, upper respiratory infections, and even digestive discomfort. Did you know that chiropractic care can help you deal with your allergies?

There are natural allergy supplements to help your body with allergens your body responds to. It is important to avoid over the counter allergy medications that usually have ingredients, such as pseudoephedrine that do not mix well with blood pressure medication and could exacerbate some cardiac conditions. D-Hist is a natural supplement where one bottle lasts the spring/summer allergy season and consists of safe, natural ingredients that promote healthy nasal and sinus passages.

At Roach Chiropractic Centre, our patients know that the best way to fight allergies during the allergy season is to have a properly functioning immune system. Chiropractic care, through its gentle adjustments, will find and eliminate any interference to your nervous system, enabling your body to do its best to fight off allergies.
