Chiropractic care does not necessarily treat allergies. So why do so many people talk about improved allergies after receiving chiropractic care?
Nope...It is not the Pollen
There are a lot of signs of allergic reactions. Running nose, eyes that become itchy, a skin rash, sneezing, asthma reactions....Even more serious things such as vomiting or restricted air passageways... All this from a couple of peanuts, sitting where a cat has been, or small amounts of pollen in the air!
Your body inappropriately perceives the allergen as some sort of a threat.
If everyone reacted to these common substances, we could fix the blame squarely on the peanuts, the pollen count, the shellfish, etc. But not everyone reacts to these, so what is it then?
Your nervous system orchestrates your glands, respiratory, and immune systems and all your bodily systems. An inappropriate action can set off your reactions to allergens. While these systems in your body help you adapt to your environment, sometimes it perceives a threat and reacts. It all depends on your bucket of adaptability.
How filled is your “adaptation bucket?”
We were all born with the ability to withstand or adapt to stress. If we’re not able to deal with things we eat or breathe, or come into contact with it might be that our margin to adapt (or bucket) is full already.
Every stress you encounter, no matter how small or big, helps to fill this bucket. So when your bucket gets full, then you are more likely to be overtaken by an allergy.
In other words, you've lost my ability to adapt because your margin is used up.
