Millions of people who suffer from allergies have benefited from chiropractic care even though chiropractic is not specifically an allergy treatment. Why? Because chiropractic "adjustments" realign structures that allow for better lymphatic drainage and reduce nerve irritation to systems that, when working optimally, permit your body to function at its best. That is especially important if you suffer from allergies.

But first, let's find out, what is an allergy? Your immune system aims to keep you 100% natural, organic and unadulterated! It recognizes and destroys anything that is foreign: invading bacteria, viruses, pollutants, dust, pollen, drugs, food additives, tumors, things that aren't where they belong-like your own dead skin cells, and even artificial hearts and donor organs (metal and plastic, however, don't trigger an immune reaction).

A healthy immune system creates fine-tuned resistance to disease and infection, the ability to deal with stress better and greater health and well-being. With allergies, the body's normal immune response overreacts, sort of like a person wearing headphones who is talking too loudly, only allergies are not funny!

By reducing mechanical and chemical stress on the nervous system, chiropractic care permits the immune system to function more effectively-something all allergy sufferers need. A nervous system without undue stress functions more efficiently. Recent conclusions in the field of psychoneuroimmunology reveal that, even though they are not hard wired together, your nervous system directly affects your immune system; when one is optimized, so is the other.

Chiropractic adjustments (to bring off balance spinal structures into better alignment) can simultaneously reduce mechanical and chemical stresses to the intertwined nervous system. Just like when headphones are taken off and talking instantly adapts to a volume more suitable to the environment, adjustments can help optimize the responses of the immune system so your body can work more effectively to neutralize the allergy causing chemicals that have entered and reeked havoc in your body.
