If you'd prefer a safer, more effective strategy, you'll find it right here at Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic. Our Oviedo FL clinic can use chiropractic treatment to help your body communicate with itself more effectively, relieving your allergy issues in the process.
Allergies 101: Definition, Causes and Symptoms
What are these annoying allergies all about? An allergy is an abnormal response by the immune system -- or rather, a normal response to the wrong stimulus. Ideally, the immune system fights invading germs by launching antibodies against it, with histamine and other by-products of this effort causing the same kinds of symptoms you might experience in an allergy attack. But in the case of an allergy, the immune system is launching an attack against a harmless substance, not a potential infection. Common allergy triggers include:
- Pet dander
- Seasonal pollen
- Mold spores
- Airborne substances such as perfumes, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and household cleaner fumes
- Specific foods or food additives
- Certain medications
- Insect stings
Allergy symptoms can be as varied in nature as their causes. You may experience a runny nose, itchy/watery eyes, coughing, sneezing, hives, and breathing problems. A severe allergy attack can even create an emergency condition known as anaphylactic shock.
The Chiropractic Approach to Allergy Management
Since allergies are related to a miscommunication in the body, chiropractic treatment can help by optimizing the function of those all-important communications pathways -- the nerves. The more normally your nervous system is functioning, the less trouble you're likely to have with "mistakes" such as allergies. This means that you can use chiropractic care as part of a safe, non-pharmaceutical approach to controlling your allergies, as opposed to simply masking their symptoms with drugs.
Chiropractic adjustments can provide many key benefits in helping your body function as it should. In addition to improving immune system function, chiropractic care can ease stress, which seems to be a key factor in many people's allergy issues. Improving your musculoskeletal alignment also gives your lungs and airways more breathing room. We can even recommend other anti-allergy strategies such as dietary changes or other lifestyle adjustments to help you get maximum relief from attacks.
