Our weather in Southern California may be enviable, but mild winters come with a price: year-round allergies. Due to a lack of frost, our growing season outlasts other geographic locations, which can cause pollen and other allergens to remain circulating in outdoor air nearly ten months out of the year. And, it’s not just Southern California—because of environmental issues such as pollution, as well as our rapidly changing climate, even the regular allergy season is prolonging and intensifying.
Luckily, you have drug-free, natural options that can actually help alleviate allergy issues from the inside out with chiropractic treatments from Tannenbaum Chiropractic in Beverly Hills.
How Do Allergies Affect My Body?
The way your body responds to allergies is actually linked to your immune system response. As it does with other foreign invaders, your body will work hard to expel dangerous substances from your body. When your body is exposed to certain allergens, this response can be in the form of inflammation, sneezing, coughing, and even vomiting. While your body’s natural allergic reaction is well-meaning and overall harmless when it comes to seasonal allergies, it can also be irritating, and even debilitating, to deal with.
Typical “seasonal” allergies can be triggered by:
When your body reacts to one of these irritants through touch or inhalation, it can trigger a response of antibodies from your nervous system. These antibodies, called immunoglobulins, then release histamines to act against the adverse substance. Histamines activate an inflammatory response in your body, causing a drop in blood pressure, followed by a myriad of familiar allergic reactions such as itching, sneezing and a scratchy throat.
Other Contributing Factors of Severe Allergies
Outdoor allergens can be compounded by other internal factors, making allergic reactions even more severe. From stress, to respiratory issues, to diet and exercise, there are several contributing factors that may be prohibiting your body from to functioning optimally, and that can ultimately worsen allergic reactions.
With Beverly Hills chiropractic care treatments at Tannenbaum Chiropractic, your body’s natural response to allergies can be improved through:
- Strengthening the immune system
- Regulating stress
- Respiratory system improvement
- Asthma treatment
- Overall wellness adjustments
How Chiropractic Care in Beverly Hills Can Help
Those who receive regular chiropractic care treatments understand the vast benefits to the immune system. The close link between the nervous system and the immune system—and because it is your immune system that is reacting to allergen invasion—means that you can also benefit from allergy relief with regular chiropractic care.
It is not that chiropractic care cures your personal allergies, but rather eliminates interference in the line of communication between your nervous system and immune system’s response. Through spinal adjustments and manipulation of the joints and soft tissue, chiropractic care can create open pathways of communication. The regulation of immune response can therefore help manage the functionality of your body’s response to allergens.
At Tannenbaum Chiropractic, we offer holistic wellness treatments that will help you manage year-round allergies, providing you with ongoing whole-body comfort you deserve, free of severe allergies.
