2. Allergies and the Immune System
In short, the allergy symptoms you experience result from your immune system reacting to a foreign substance. The responses can be sneezing, coughing, runny nose, all the way to anaphylaxis. Your immune system reacts to these substances by “attacking” them as they would a virus, bacteria, etc.
Lymphoid are the organs involved with the immune system and affect the growth, development, and release of white blood cells. Each lymphoid organ plays a role in the production and activation of these particles. For example, the spleen and tonsils are two such types of lymphoid.
Remember, something you are allergic to has entered your system and is attacking your immune system. How can you increase the function of your immune system and protect the lymphoid from what is attacking your body?
”A first-time occurrence (of allergies) can happen at any age, or recur after many years of remission.” – John Hopkins Medicine
3. Chiropractic Treatments for Seasonal Allergies
One of the systems in your body that directly affects the immune system is the nervous system. The immune system works best when the nervous system works best. Chiropractic adjustments optimize the nervous system through spinal and other adjustments, resulting in improved body systems, including the immune system. A spinal or similar misalignment can disrupt the communication between the central nervous system and the rest of your body. As a result, your body is more susceptible to your allergies. Targeted spinal alignments help improve the function of your nervous system and immune system. Be sure to tell your chiropractor which allergies you suffer from, as well as their symptoms.
