Chiropractic & Allergies

Your immune system recognizes and destroys anything foreign to your body, such as: bacteria, viri, pollutants, dust, pollen, drugs, tumors, dead pieces of cells, and even artificial hearts. Many things influence how well your immune system functions: nerves, hormones, diet, genes, and emotions.

An unhealthy immune system fails to recognize or remove abnormal cells and may not protect you from infection. It may also overreact to foreign substances, become depressed, or attack your own body.

The most common immune system disorder is an allergy. Allergies occur when your immune system overreacts to an allergen, such as: dust, pollen, mile, dog or cat dander; and produces too many neutralizing chemicals to counteract it.

A healthy immune system means high resistance to disease and infection, a better ability to deal with stress, and greater health and well-being. Orthodox medicine has no cure for allergies, only treatment of the symptoms. Chiropractic helps you naturally defend against disease by removing subluxations in your body. Correcting subluxations help you adapt better to stresses in your environment, including allergies.

Ask your Chiropractic Doctor for more information about an overall wellness care program that may include: spinal adjustments, conjunctive therapies, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice, and other conservative methods of care based on your health history, current health condition, age, and lifestyle.
