Allergies are a strange and little-understood phenomenon of the human biological system: essentially, our immune system identifies an external substance as harmful and goes overboard in its attempt to purge our body of said substance. Pollen, for example, is benign but it causes millions of people to sneeze, sniff, tear up and itch. While chiropractic is not a direct treatment for allergies: it works because the immune and nervous systems interact with and influence each other.
An allergic reaction is often provoked by the body’s incorrect sensory interpretation of the surrounding environment. The nervous system is the processor for this sensory information, collecting it and sending signals to the brain in fractions of a second. If the nervous system is impaired by subluxation, this could cause the kind of misinterpretation that leads to allergies.
People often find relief from the severity and frequency of their allergy symptoms through regular chiropractic care. If you are looking to get over the scratching, itching, tearing and swelling that results from allergies without depending upon over-the-counter medication, give our office in Milpitas a call. We correct subluxation to ensure your nervous system is communicating correctly.
