Itchy watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing… many people know all too well what that means… It’s allergy season! But why? Why do some people have allergies and others don’t?
The answer is really in understanding our immune system, or rather the differences from one person to the next. The immune system is our internal medical response team. It’s always on the ready to provide treatment and healing, but it needs the Nervous system to sound the alarm and communicate the problem.
This could be anything that threatens our health and wellbeing, including viruses (cold or flu), as well as allergens like pollen, pet dander, bee stings, etc. The nervous system identifies and communicates the problem but it’s up to the immune system to trigger the correct response.
When there’s interference within the nervous system, the communication can get messed up, which may cause the immune system to trigger the wrong response or even no response.
The focus of Chiropractic is the nervous system; to identify and correct interference. This allows the body to heal and improve its ability to keep you and your immune system as healthy as possible. Thus, it’s very simple. A nervous system free of interference means an immune system with better information to fight off colds, infections and Allergies!
