Chiropractic Care for Allergies
Chiropractic Health Clinic frequently treats patients who live with allergies. Chiropractic care is a natural approach to allergies that is effective. If you live with allergies, our Omaha, NE, chiropractor may be able to help.
Here's How Allergies Work
Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system to a foreign substance, called an allergen. The immune system produces antibodies to the allergen, which leads to the release of histamines. Histamines cause the symptoms we associate with allergies, such as itchy eyes and sneezing.
Your immune system is great at protecting you, but sometimes allergies can get the best of us. That's why chiropractic care is such a great option if you want to improve your general wellness and lifestyle.
Chiropractic Care Releases Stress on the Nervous System
One of the primary ways that chiropractic care helps with allergies is by releasing stress on the nervous system. The nervous system controls everything in your body, so when it's not functioning properly, neither is your body.
The nervous system can become stressed for a variety of reasons, including poor posture, injuries, and emotional stress. When the nervous system is stressed, it's harder for your body to fight off foreign invaders, like allergens.
Chiropractic Treatments for Allergies
To treat allergies, your chiropractor will perform a series of adjustments. These adjustments will help to release the stress on your nervous system and improve your overall health. Treating vertebral misalignment removes nervous system stress.
You may also be surprised to find that exercise can also support your immune system. A sedentary lifestyle can make allergies worse. When you don't move your body, your lymphatic system doesn't work as efficiently. Your chiropractor will show you how to move for better results.
Massage therapy could also be used to relax your body and release stress. Our chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes, such as exercise and relaxation techniques, to help you manage stress.
You can also treat allergies with nutritional changes. Nutritional counseling involves working with our professionals to identify foods that may be triggering your allergies and making sure you're getting the nutrients you need to support a healthy immune system.
