Although Chiropractic is not a defined “medical” treatment for allergies, many people have benefitted from visiting their chiropractic specialists when dealing with this condition. There is a reason why, but first you must understand what causes allergic reactions.
Allergies are caused by substances and organisms in your body, which the immune system does not recognize. The immune system develops a hypersensitive reaction, which presents itself in a number of ways; red eyes, eczema, itchiness, running nose, and even asthma. In some people, the reaction progresses into what is known as anaphylaxis, which is a reaction that is so severe, that it threatens the life of the patient. This is the reason why people look for long-term, natural, remedies to allergies, rather than take drugs every time they get afflicted.
Chiropractic Solution to Allergies
As mentioned above, allergies are caused by a hypersensitive reaction of the immune system, when it cannot deal with a certain substance or organism. Therefore, the chiropractic approach is to make the immune system more efficient, in order to allow it to deal with a wide range of foreign bodies in the system. The only way to do this is to help the nervous system resist the tendency to become hypersensitive. The approach dwells mainly on the alignment of the body. The spine is the highway for the nervous system, and aligning this makes the body more resistant to invasion.
Subluxations refer to the occurrence of misaligned vertebrae on the spine, and adjustments will correct them. This allows the nervous system to be more efficient, thereby allowing it to enhance the performance of the immune system. With a number of sessions, the patient will notice that he or she is less allergic to the same substances, and eventually the allergy will subside. Remember that a healthy body will be able to protect itself from a wider range of toxins, and that is how the chiropractic care treatment works.
When the immune system cannot deal with a toxic substance, it produces a high amount of histamine, which causes you to develop the allergic reaction. With chiropractic alignment of the body, the immune system is better able to regulate the amount of histamine that is controlled through the release of cortisol from the adrenal gland. Cortisol counters the effects of Histamine, and this way, the allergy is avoided. The only way that the body can produce enough cortisol, is to make sure that the nervous and immune systems are at their peak performance. The adrenal gland is served through the T9 spinal level nerve root, and the alignment of this region will determine the production of cortisol. The better the alignment, the more cortisol will be produced to combat even high levels of histamine.
