Are you a seasonal allergy sufferer? Are you tired of not being able to breathe when the leaves start falling?

With allergy season ramping up and before you stock up on antihistamines and other medications, consider visiting your local Corrective Chiropractor to help!

Here’s why...

Chiropractic treatments are all-natural, non-invasive, and are a medication-free way to manage your allergies. The onslaught of sneezing, runny noses, watery eyes, and even wheezing are all your body’s natural defense against seemingly harmless substances. Your allergic reaction or allergies are caused by your immune system initiating an exaggerated response to substances (like pollen in the Spring, or dust, ragweed - you name it) that are otherwise harmless to your body.

With regular chiropractic adjustments, through the allergy season and beyond you’ll be able to:

  1. Boost your immune system.

    When you spine is misaligned, your nervous system is not able to function properly. This means the communication between our brain and the rest of your body is impacted, including your immune system. And often the more severe the misalignment in the spine, the worse the allergies become as the brain is not able to regulate the histamines your body produces, causing you to sneeze, cough, and wheeze more than normal.

  2. Regulate your stress hormones.

    A properly aligned spine will enable your brain to better control the stress hormones your body produces and releases. This in turn allows you to feel less stressed and your body will overall be less tense with regular chiropractic adjustments. The more stress you have and feel, the more your immune system will be impacted and the greater toll your allergies will have on your body.

  3. Enhance your breathing.

    Similar to the immune system, your respiratory system is controlled by your nervous system. By making sure your nervous system is functioning at its best, you’re better able to regulate not just how you breathe but how your body responds to irritants that may enter your body through your nose or mouth. It is these pesky irritants that disrupt your immune system and cause an allergic reaction. The better equipped your body is to destroy or contain these airborne irritants the less severe your allergies will be.

As we enter into the allergy season, you don’t have to suffer!
