Do You Suffer From Allergies in Ocala FL?

Do you suffer from allergies in Ocala? To begin to understand allergies, it is important to have knowledge of what their fundamental cause is. A large majority of the population in America are under the misunderstanding that allergies are caused by a specific substance such as; milk, peanuts, animal dandruff, pollen, seafood etc. If this were the case and these substances were the root cause of allergies, wouldn’t everyone that is exposed to them have an allergic response? We all know that this doesn’t happen, but the question then becomes why. If these substances are not responsible for the life threatening symptoms of allergies such as hives, sneezing, wheezing, constriction of the air passages, and more, then what is? The real answer and where the solution to these symptoms lie, are the differences between people due to the improper function of their nervous and immune systems.

So why are my nervous and immune systems overreacting?

First of all, it must be understood that our brain controls all activities and structures in our body through the communication pathways in our spine. These nerves originating in the brain exit through spaces in the spinal column to supply every structure in your body. If nervous system communication is compromised by any factor, dysfunction of the supplied structures will occur. In the case of allergies, the nerves supplying the immune system have been damaged by the bones in your spine causing them to be hyperactive. Where in a person with a healthy/aligned spine would be able to adapt to a stressor such as an allergen, a person with with nerve interference due to a vertebral misalignment views it as a threat and is unable to adapt. This may help explain why one person eating seafood at a restaurant breaks out in a rash or finds themselves sneezing uncontrollably, while the next person is able to enjoy the same entree without consequence.

To understand this concept, we can use the analogy of filling up a bucket. The bucket will represent our ability to accommodate, react, and adapt to the various stresses in life. As everyone knows, a bucket is made to hold only so much water or in this instance stress. To fill our buckets, chemical, emotional, traumatic, and allergic stressors all contribute. As long as our nerves are communicating with our immune systems properly, we can continue to adapt to these forms of stress and our buckets should never reach a point where they overflow. However, in some people their nervous system is functioning improperly and as a result their immune system overreacts to normal stresses causing allergic reactions.

How can I keep my bucket from overflowing?

Our chiropractors at Integrative Health Care & Physical Medicine have been trained not to directly treat allergies, but to locate these areas in the spine that may be causing the interference that is contributing to the development of the symptoms. Through a careful evaluation, our chiropractors will locate the specific abnormalities and carefully adjust them to restore proper nervous and immune system function. As many chiropractors have said, the people that don’t understand how chiropractic can help conditions such as allergies, are the ones who have actually never been to one for care. If you are interested in addressing the cause of your allergies and eliminating the potential for a life full of antihistamines and allergy shots, please contact our Integrative Health Care & Physical Medicine office today.
