Got Allergies?

Got Allergies
Spring is here, and for many of us, that also means Allergy Season!
But does it have to be that way?
Allergies can be triggered by different types of irritants/ toxins, including dust, pollen, ragweed, aspirin, perfume, stress, dust mites, pet hair, food additives, dairy, grains, and occupational vapors. Although these things may trigger an attack, they are not the primary cause of the attack. Research has shown that several factors contribute to allergies.
Allergies are our bodies’ best way of handling these irritants. Our body tries to get these toxins out of our system and prevent them from getting further into our cells by activating mucous production, coughing, sneezing, swelling, inflammation, and skin rashes, just to name a few.
Additionally, your body’s toxicity level can contribute to allergies. As your toxicity bucket fills up, your body has difficulty clearing those toxins from your system. It may become more sensitive, causing allergies to get worse over time.
Avoidance of common allergens is an essential factor. Still, a properly functioning nervous system should be the first priority in solving allergies since it is the nervous system that controls all of our bodily functions. Our nervous system works by sending and receiving messages or impulses through our spine to all body parts. These brain-to-body and body-to-brain impulses are how our body protects us from allergens, such as the above-mentioned mucous production, coughing, inflammation, skin rashes, etc.

For example, while coughing or wheezing, nerve impulses control the tone of the bronchial tubes in our lungs. The sympathetic part of our system opens or dilates our bronchial tubes, and our parasympathetic system closes or constricts them. This requires a proper functioning nervous system without any  Neuro-Structural Shifts  creating interference to our nerves, especially those in our neck and upper back. This is the primary nerve supply to our Autonomic Nervous System and our head and lungs. 

At  Platinum Chiropractic , our focus is to help clear your nervous system of any  Neuro-Structural Shifts  that could be causing your body not to function at its best. Restoring the proper function of your nerves makes you stronger and more able to handle stress, like irritants in the environment that cause allergies.
