I know that it can be very frustrating and upsetting for parents to see their children struggle with allergies and I also know from talking to parents that many are not too pleased with the usual recommended treatment which is drugs and allergy shots.
They are concerned about the potentially harmful side-effects associated with allergy medication and every parent must do their due diligence whenever anything is injected into their child’s body.[flashvideo file=http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/18.10.2011.allergies.brad-1.mp4 image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/seasonal.allergies.jpg width=500 height=300 /]
What is important for you to understand first and foremost is that watery eyes, runny noses and sneezing are normal allergic responses and do not necessarily mean you’re sick.
Let me explain …. these allergic responses are part of what is referred to as a histamine reaction and this is the way your body expels whatever it is allergic to.
Let’s use ragweed pollen as an example.
Now, when you take an anti-histamine drug which are frequently prescribed in these situations, it may prevent the watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing but then the ragweed pollen will remain inside the body instead of being eliminated from the body.
You can imagine that this would not be good for your child’s health or anyone’s health for that matter and this is why allergy medications just do not make any sense to me.
There are scientific research studies showing that people who use chiropractic on a regular basis have immune systems that respond better when challenged that those who do not use chiropractic.
And did you know that one of the main reasons allergies will ever develop in the first place is due to a sluggish immune system?
Well, you will be glad to know that it has been my clinical experience after 25 years in family practice that most chiropractic patients, children included, do not have sluggish immune systems.
In fact, it is quite the contrary. Kids who get chiropractic care seem to be healthier kids. Less colds, less sickness, less allergies.
