ALLERGIES AND CHIROPRACTIC
Why can six people sleep on the same pillow, play with the same dog, eat the same food and breathe the same air that a seventh can't? Why do some suffer from allergies while others don't? The answer is the body of the sufferer. He or she has a low resistance to certain irritants and isn't able to throw them off as someone else does.
The body that defends itself against foreign substances must be maintained in good working order. The white blood cells, the lymph system, and waste eliminating systems, along with the sinus cavities, and mucus membranes are all kept in order by the nervous system.
As long as the spine is in it's normal position, it protects the nerves, but once it gets out of alignment, the vertebral segments pinch the nerves, interfering with the messages and nerve energy that travel through the nervous system. When this happens, that portion of the body served by the affected nerves cannot function properly.
The real cause of allergies, then, is not the allergy itself, but distorted nerve impulses. Once the cause of the interference has been eliminated, the body's natural defenses can function properly again. Eliminate the cause, and the result will correct itself from within.
Doctors of Chiropractic restore proper nerve function by correcting spinal misalignments, and thus allowing healing nerve impulses to flow uninterrupted, and normal health follows.
