Curing Food Allergies with Chiropractic Care
Allergies can significantly decrease your quality of life, and some allergies can even be dangerous for patients. At Health Quest Chiropractic in Albuquerque, we strive to help patients understand the cause of their allergies and to manage their response to their allergy triggers. Curing food allergies is possible with chiropractic care.
Understanding the Cause of Allergies
Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system. When the body is exposed to the allergy trigger, whatever that trigger is, the body reacts with an exaggerated response. This response can range from swelling and hives to watery eyes, runny nose and difficulty breathing. Typical allergies include seeds, dust, pollen and foods like peanuts and dairy.
Chiropractic Treatment for Allergies
Chiropractic care offers all natural, holistic treatment for curing food allergies. Chiropractors use spinal adjustment to help patients regulate their immune system and prevent the body from overreacting to environmental triggers. Spinal adjustment can accomplish this goal by realigning the vertebrae of the spine and improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body. In addition to chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor can help treat your allergies through a variety of other techniques. For example:
- Lifestyle advice. Many chiropractors will administer lifestyle advice that help patients avoid environmental triggers, thus reducing their exposure to the allergen.
- Nutrition advice. Chiropractors can help prevent patient allergies by encouraging their patients to follow an anti-inflammatory diet.
- Stretches and exercises. Chiropractors recommend their patients do stretches and exercises that can help them avoid subluxations and maintain good functioning of the central nervous system.
