For those who suffer from seasonal allergies, this time of the year can be miserable. You’re either enduring the symptoms, including watery eyes, itchiness, sneezing, or rashes, or you’re bogged down by the drowsiness and other negative effects that come along with so many allergy medicines. MPR’s Dr. Keith Murray, DC, is here to tell you the easy way to put your symptoms to rest.
What’s wrong with taking allergy medicine?
Allergy medicines don’t cure allergies. They simply ease the symptoms, but do not serve any long term effects. Decongestants, antihistamines, and corticosteroids may make you feel better, but they also usually come along with drowsiness, dizziness, insomnia, gastrointestinal problems, and high blood pressure.
How does Chiropractic help with allergies?
When there is interference between the nervous system and the immune system, problems arise. It’s like a chain of reactions – if the nervous system is interrupted, the immune system is affected, it can’t effectively fight infection, and suffering from allergies becomes much more likely. Chiropractic care aligns the spine to eliminate nerve interference, getting to the root of the problem and stopping it in its tracks.
Additionally, regular adjustments improve your overall health, whether you suffer from seasonal allergies or not!
People often think that chiropractic adjustments are only for those with back pain. But just because you don’t feel any pain doesn’t mean the spine isn’t misaligned. The C1 and C2 vertebrae on the top of the spine support the skull. They are so close to the brain stem that any misalignment there could cause pressure on the body’s main message center, leading to a number of negative symptoms that the average person may not even associate with the spine.
There’s no need to continue enduring a runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, or any of the other symptoms that come along with seasonal allergies.
