Why You Should Seek Allergy Relief with Your Lexington Chiropractor
For countless allergy sufferers, spring fever is in the air – literally – with all sorts of newly bloomed pollen floating on the breeze. Allergies, unfortunately, do not only occur in springtime; mold allergies bother many in the fall, dust wreaks havoc year-round, animal dander irritates pet owners, and food allergies put people at risk every day. Your Lexington chiropractor, Dr. Shan Twit helps patients manage their allergy symptoms throughout the year with natural, non-invasive care.
What Are Allergies and Allergic Reactions?
Although modern medicine does not fully understand why certain people suffer from allergies and other do not, understanding the process of allergic reactions will help you understand how chiropractic adjustment treats allergies. An allergic reaction occurs when a typically harmless substance, like pollen or peanuts, enters the body and the body's mast cells recognize it as harmful. These mast cells trigger the body to expel the substance by releasing histamine and causing inflammation in order to trigger the symptoms we associate with allergies such as sneezing, mucus production, and maybe even vomiting.
Reduce the Frequency and Severity of Allergic Reactions
Chiropractic adjustments help many patients find allergy relief in Lexington. Adjustments help the body and its immune system function at an optimal level by freeing up the brain's line of communication with the body, the nervous system. Allergic reactions occur when the body mistakes a harmless substance for a harmful one, and a freely functioning nervous system reduces the frequency of miscommunication like the kind which occurs with allergies.
In addition, chiropractic care has been shown to reduce the overall inflammation (a direct side effect of allergic reaction) within the body. Reduced inflammation imparts a myriad of health benefits specifically related to allergies such as reduced occurrence of asthma, redness, itchiness, rash, and swelling.
