How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Allergies
Allergy Types & Symptoms
Seasonal allergies can be a pain especially during the season changes and are more drastic. Allergies can be a nuisance when you have sniffles or constant sneezing, or worse when they wipe you out.
Some people live off of allergy medication, but the downside is they cause drowsiness or other side affects which can leave you un-functionable.
The immune system naturally produces histamines when you consume or encounter the allergen. For some people, allergens do not affect them, but if you have a weakened immune system, that is when problems arise.
Symptoms of allergies include:
- Runny/stuffy nose
- Itchy/red eyes
- Coughing/scratchy/sore throat
- Skin rash/ hives
Anaphylaxis, another type of allergy that is severe and can be life threatening if not treated immediately. If you experience a swollen tongue and throat, where you are unable to breathe, seek immediate help.
Additional allergens also include environmental and food such as mold or dust, strawberries, peanuts and even pet dander. Note, everyone reacts to allergens differently and to different severity. Allergy tests can be done by your doctor to confirm the type(s) you have.
