This allergy season you don’t have to suffer through sneezing, coughing, and sniffling. A chiropractic adjustment at MindBody Med in Seattle, WA could help alleviate your allergy symptoms.

What Causes Allergies?

An allergic reaction happens when the immune system mistakes a substance that is usually harmless (such as pollen, grass, mold, food, or animal dander) as harmful. The body then produces histamine, which in turn produces allergy symptoms.

  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose
  • Red & Itchy Eyes
  • Coughing
  • Hives
  • Swollen Tongue Or Face

How Do Chiropractic Treatments Help With Allergies?

Most people see a chiropractor to help reduce chronic pain, fatigue, muscle aches, or numbness and tingling. The chiropractor’s primary goal is to bring the spine into alignment. The spine is part of the nervous system and the nervous system communicates directly with our immune system. When there is nerve interference in the spine, the immune system may overreact to an outside substance. Spinal alignment can also help relieve tension and stress, leading to a healthier immune system and a better quality of life.

  • Better Communication Between The Nervous System & Immune System
  • A Healthy Spine Is Important For A Healthy Immune System
  • Less Pain, Tension, & Stress

Common Allergy Treatments Vs. Alternative Treatments

The most common treatment is over-the-counter or prescription antihistamines and decongestants. While pharmaceutical drugs can help alleviate symptoms, they do not address the root cause. They can also come with side effects such as dry mouth, drowsiness, dizziness, difficulty in peeing, blurred vision, and confusion.

Alternative treatments such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, nutrition, and supplements, seek to treat the cause of allergic reactions. Holistic treatments come with less severe and fewer side effects if any at all.
