Chiropractic doesn’t treat diseases, however, like cleaning your hard drive, the human computer (the brain) works with a lot less glitches when it is functioning optimally. THAT is why chiropractic helps many allergy sufferers, as well as many other conditions that are “treated” (masked) with drugs.
Your body inappropriately perceives an allergen as a potential threat. However, not everyone reacts to these everyday substances.
Your nervous system is the hard drive that controls your immune, glandular, respiratory and every other system that reacts to an allergen. These systems allow you to respond and adapt to the world around you. Suffering uncontrollably from hay fever or a pet’s dander is probably an overreaction.
The bottom line is, if your nervous system is not working right, your body CANNOT function optimally. Instead of trying to eliminate the multitude of potential allergens, chiropractic care, and Applied Kinesiological (AK) protocols utilize your bodies’ computer to locate and reduce the glitches found in your nervous system.
We are all born with the capacity to adapt to stress. When our bodies are not able to deal with potential triggers that we might eat, breathe or come into contact with, it may be because our ability to adapt is over-worked and unable to keep up.
Visualize a glass that represents your ability to adapt to the physical, emotional and chemical stresses of life. Every stressful situation your body encounters fills up your glass.
If your glass is already full and you encounter dog dander, foods, toxic chemicals or air-borne pollens, your glass overflows. When this happens, folks complain that they are having an allergic reaction. But what’s really occurring is they’ve lost the ability to adapt.
Modern chiropractic seeks ways to restore your bodies’ ability to adapt to allergens by locating and reducing disturbances to your nervous system. AK techniques may also unearth potential hypersensitivities simply using the bodies systems to find many common triggers.
