ASTHMA & ALLERGIES
Acupuncture & Chiropractic
Are both treatment modalities to help with asthma and allergies. In the United States millions of people who suffer from a wide variety of breathing conditions (allergies included) have benefited from chiropractic and acupuncture care. Why? Because chiropractic is a method of healthcare that permits your body to function at its best and acupuncture addresses the underlying Qi’ imbalances that may lead to this condition.
How Does it Work?
The nervous system is the governor of all other systems within the body. This includes our immune system which aids us in fighting off those pesky allergens.
Some people may be wondering what an allergy even is. Your immune system is programmed to protect you from any number of things such as viruses, bacteria, dust, pollen’s and pollutants. Your body is even trained to recognize self versus non-self and that is why we have to make sure we are only putting substances into our body that it recognizes as self. For example, if you were to need a blood transfusion, your physician would check your blood type first to be sure they are giving you the right type of blood. If they didn’t, your body would to try to fight it and you would have a reaction to it. It works the same way with allergies.
Through chiropractic and acupuncture we remove any nerve interference that could be placed on your immune system from misalignment’s in your spinal column. In turn the nervous system functions better and therefore all the systems it controls including the immune system will be sharper and able to fight off those allergens easier without causing a reaction.
