The symptoms of allergies stem from histamine reactions in your body. These reactions are meant to fight off infection or dangerous substances, but those who suffer from allergies have immune systems that are hyperactive. Normal substances that should not trigger coughing fits or draining noses do.
Orthopedic doctors and chiropractic practitioners both think that the root issue may not lie in immunoresponse, but rather imbalances in the nervous system that cause a domino effect on the lymphatic systems.
Specifically, nerve compression as a result of subluxations along the eighth, ninth and tenth thoracic vertebrae can cause adrenal glands to behave abnormally. As a result, the body tends to react hyperactively to simple environmental triggers.
Research shows that targeted adjustments can restore proper nerve functioning, help the lymphatic system drain to improve immunoresponse and improve the condition of allergy sufferers. By working closely with Dr. Jessica Harden at Providence Chiropractic, you can manage your condition and ensure continued wellness that allows you to enjoy things you used to like going outdoors or owning pets.
