Nearly 40% of the world’s population suffer from at least one allergy. The most common allergens include: pollen, grass, dust, mould and weeds.
Unfortunately, many of the medications recommended to treat these allergens come with a large number of side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision and confusion.
An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system encounters an irritant, triggering the body to release specific antibodies, known as histamines. These histamines incorrectly warn the immune system of danger, resulting in miserable symptoms such as sneezing, itching, nausea and congestion.
The intimate relationship between the nervous system and immune system makes chiropractic the healthiest alternative to medications when combating allergies.
Studies have shown that over 90% of people suffering with allergies have vertebral misalignments in the middle part of their spine. 70% of those suffering achieved a reduction in their symptoms after receiving a series of spinal adjustments.
