Allergies

Restore Your Ability to Adapt to Allergens with Chiropractic

According to AAAAI (American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology), allergies are one of the most prevalent chronic conditions worldwide. Allergies occur when the immune system reacts excessively to an allergen (substance seen as harmful to the immune system which in most cases are un-damaging). When the immune system over- reacts, it creates an influx of Immunoglobulin E antigen (IgE). IgE causes other cells to release histamine, causing an allergic reaction.

At Align, we address allergies in children and adults by first looking to see if nerve disturbance is present in the spinal column through chiropractic evaluation. The nervous system is the master controller that “runs” your immune system, respiratory system and glandular system, and other systems that react inappropriately to an allergen. Each of us are born with the capacity to withstand or adapt to stressors in our environment. If we are unable to deal with things we eat, breathe or come into contact with it may be because we are unable to adapt.

As chiropractors, we do not treat your allergies specifically, but we look for ways to restore your ability to adapt to allergens by reducing the disturbances and stressors on your nervous system with chiropractic care. We invite you to talk more about allergy symptom treatments with us personally – or if you would like to schedule an appointment with us, let us know!
