In this issue we will inform you on how you can get allergy relief fast and sufficient.
Seasonal allergies affect more than 35 million Americans and cost the U.S. economy more than $7 billion in lost productivity.
For allergy sufferers the costs very quickly add up. Doctor visits, prescription medications, and possible time missed from work will cost a lot in the long run.
Why Do Some People Get Allergy Symptoms?
Allergies are the result of an exaggerated response by the immune system to substances it recognizes as foreign. The body becomes hypersensitive to pollen and other environmental substances.
In an allergic person, the immune system produces a specific antibody known as immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to pollen, pet dander, foods, dust, and other matters, which then produces an allergic reaction.
Allergic reactions can consist of a number of irritating symptoms that can easily make life miserable. The symptoms can include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy throat or inside of ears, hives, swollen eyelids, and itchy eyes.
For starters, ragweed is a weed that can grow almost anywhere, but especially in the east and Midwest of the United States.
Other weeds that can cause allergies are; goldenrod, curly dock, lamb’s quarters, pigweed, sheep sorrel, and sagebrush.
Outdoor molds are also a cause of allergies. Especially around the spring period and they thrive until the first frost. They are common in soil, compost piles, and in the leaves that cover the ground during the fall.
Now, to the important question…
How to Relieve Allergy Symptoms?
The strength of both the immune and respiratory systems depends largely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly.
When there are interruptions in this communication, such as misalignments (blockages) of the spine, immunity may be compromised. This upper cervical joint irritation can exaggerate or even produce allergic and asthmatic symptoms.
Through manipulation of the joints and soft tissue – either through traditional chiropractic adjustment or spinal decompression – your chiropractor can help restore alignment, and open the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine.
In addition to promoting a stronger immune system, adjustments may also help regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during high allergy season. The majority of allergies involve the release of an inflammatory producing substance, so called histamine. Adequate production of cortisol (an anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the adrenal gland) is necessary to combat this.
Many Allergy Sufferers Are Found To Have Weak Adrenal Gland Function
What needs to be understood is that the adrenal gland is fed directly by the T9 spinal level nerve root, meaning once again, that spinal misalignments can greatly impact allergic reactions (source: southeastchiro.com & upchiro.com).
