If you suffer with seasonal allergies, you’re not alone. Hay fever is on the rise with more than 22 million sufferers nationwide. Spring is blooming all around us. If you have allergic reactions to grass or plant pollen you may not be able to enjoy this lovely season outdoors. Irritation of the mucous membranes: itching or watering eyes and nose, sneezing, sniffles and fatigue are the most commo n seasonal allergy symptoms.
Seasonal allergies are an indication that you have a weakened immune system. Attempting to combat pollen allergens, your body’s immune system overreacts and produces excessive histamines, thus triggering sinus irritations. While seeking relief from the symptoms, strengthening your immune system will improve your quality of health and generate lasting results.
Fortunately, there are effective, natural alternatives available. Discuss appropriate remedies and dosages with your doctor.
Natural Allergy Relief:
Chiropractic increases your resistance to allergic reactions.
Chiropractic adjustments are not a treatment for allergies. However, chiropractic enhances your body’s immune response, making you less prone to have allergic pollen reactions.
Wonder how this works? The brain controls and coordinates the function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body. The nervous system controls the immune system and is the wiring that connects the brain to the body. Any interference in this connective, communication disrupts the brain from being optimally in control, which paves the way for malfunction. This malfunction results in symptoms, such as those associated with hay fever.
Symptoms alert us to the breakdown in communication and function. Chiropractic removes nerve interference by restoring proper alignment to your vertebrae. Once effective communication between your body and brain is restored, your natural immune responses are bolstered and working to keep you well.
