Why Do People Get Allergies?
No one knows for sure why people become allergic to relatively harmless substances. One theory about allergies suggests that your body is hypersensitive if you’re a hypersensitive person. For example, if you have a high sensitivity to stress, your body also reflects this sensitivity. Since the body and the mind are connected entities, this theory makes sense. Stress reduction techniques designed to improve mind-body interactions are often successful in reducing this problem. The end result is a lessening of allergic symptoms in some patients.
Another theory is that an allergic reaction is an interpretation of your environment. In order to interpret, your body must first get information. The nervous system is part of this information-gathering function of the body. If your nervous system is dysfunctional, then the information interpreted will be altered, and this makes you vulnerable to abnormal reactions like allergies.
The Immune System Link
A chiropractor’s job is fairly straightforward: to make sure your spine is in alignment. What this translates too as far as your health is concerned isn’t as straightforward. Research shows, however, that there is a direct link between the nervous system and the immune system. When your chiropractor removes nerve interference, that will allow your immune system to work optimally.
When an immune system is functioning well it helps to prevent disease and infection, helps you to deal with stress and basically makes sure you’re healthy overall. It also tackles the invasion of foreign substances like pollution, dust, and pollen and heads them off before they can do damage. If your immune system is not functioning well it can lead to you getting sick, your body overreacting to things like bee stings, foods, pollen and drugs and even make you depressed. Keeping your spine aligned is the first step to a healthy immune system.
So, if your immune system is functioning at its best then it will be able to keep out the invaders that make you sick, like pollen, mold or dust. It will work right and instead of making you sicker, it will help you to stay well. That means that being in alignment can help symptoms you may be having from seasonal allergies.
