hay fever

From Dr Eben Davis DC ;
"Allergies are very common. One of the most common allergies is hay fever, or Allergic Rhinitis. Hay fever is thought to effect over 30% of the population in one form or another.

Hay fever occurs when the body over produces histamine in response to pollen grasses, air-borne chemicals, and dust particles. This is why the treatment is usually anti-histamine.

The problem with anti-histamine is that the body makes more histamine in response to it...which is why you have to keep taking more of it. It's a viscous cycle.
The nervous system controls and regulates every function in your body...including histamine production by the white blood cells...this is part of your immune system.

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves...which exit from in between the bones of the spine. If these bones (vertebrae) are out of alignment, they can offend and irritate the same nerves they were designed to protect...this is called a vertebral subluxation.

If the irritated nerves are involved with your immune response and histamine production, you may have abnormal reactions such as hay fever.

At my downtown San Francisco Chiropractic Center, I have patients that come to see me for allergies only. I don't treat the allergies...I treat the subluxations, which allows the nervous sytem to better balance body chemistry and immune response.

If you have hay fever it can be a real bummer. I would seriously consider visiting a good chiropractor to find out it he or she can help your allergies. I think you might be pleasantly surprised."
