Allergies are problematic for people of all ages. Unfortunately, we in Columbus, Ohio have grown to “get used to” and tolerate our allergies and simply treat the symptoms instead of getting to the root cause and correcting the problem. Chiropractic treatment for allergies addresses the sources of the malfunction rather than trying to band-aid the symptoms.
Allergy sufferers know what allergies look and feel like on the outside, but they often overlook what is actually happening in their bodies on the inside. Allergies happen when your body creates an abnormal immune response to a common molecule or substance in nature. For some people this leads to sinus problems, runny noses, and eye irritation – but this is by no means an extensive list. We can also have reactions in the intestine from foods that we eat. Sometimes this creates symptoms like stomach aches, bloating or gas, or diarrhea…but sometimes we can have no outward symptoms from the gut at all. The key point here is that if your body was simply functioning normally and healthily, you simply would not have allergies.
Instead of the immune suppressing drugs, Ability Chiropractic’s chiropractors in Columbus Ohio use natural methods to reduce and eliminate allergies. With allergies, chiropractors use a multi-faceted approach. First with restoring the proper neurological connection between the body and the brain. The immune system, neurological system, and endocrine system (glands and hormones) all work together, and therefore if dysfunction is present in one, there is dysfunction in one or both of the others. Chiropractors remove interference in the communication of the nerve system by making sure the spine and joints are firing properly up to the brain so that it gets the proper information.
Secondly, chiropractors use diet, blood testing, and supplementation to reduce the inflammatory process in the body. By identifying individual nutritional deficiencies and toxicities that can lead to more inflammation (that causes allergies to happen in the first place), we can help eliminate inflammation through diet and supplementation, naturally reducing and eliminating allergies.
