Fall Allergies: How Our St. Charles, Aurora, & Geneva Chiropractor Can Help
When the seasons change, allergies tend to flare up. The symptoms of allergies are annoying, but they are easily treated. In order to understand how chiropractic care can help treat the allergic reactions that so many people experience in autumn, it's important to first understand why seasonal allergies occur. At Sharratt Chiropractic Family Health & Massage Center, it's important to us to help our patients understand the why behind allergy symptoms. We're proud to help the Geneva, Aurora, St. Charles, and Batavia areas through the autumn allergy season.
Symptoms of Allergies
Allergy symptoms vary from person to person. Most people experience watery eyes, nasal congestion, a runny nose, itchy eyes, itchy nose, fatigue, coughing, and dark circles under the eyes. These symptoms are caused by the body overreacting to allergens, such as pollen released by plants adjusting to new temperatures. When plants release pollen, allergies are nearly impossible to control. Pollen ends up in your airways, and your body's defense system reacts as if it's being attacked. Allergic reactions are the result of this defense system kicking into action, doing its best to rid your body of the perceived threat.
Chiropractic Care for Allergies
Chiropractic care doesn't use drugs to treat allergic reactions. We work to correct the bodily miscommunication that results in allergy symptoms. We focus on maintaining spinal alignment, which allows your body to communicate correctly with your brain. Messages about potential threats to your safety travel through your spinal cord as nerves deliver messages to your brain. When the pathways of your spinal cord are misaligned, it can create an abnormal signal. This signal can cause the brain to unnecessarily activate your body's alarm system, causing an allergic reaction.
NAET (Nambrudipad Allergy Elimination Technique) has been used by Dr. Sharratt to successfully treat airborne, food, and contact allergies in patients for over 20 years. Using time tested Chinese medicine techniques, Dr. Sharratt uses noninvasive methods to identify allergens in the patient. Then, Dr. Sharratt down-regulates the patient’s allergic response, thereby removing blockages of the chi. This technique is completely noninvasive. No needles are used, only acupressure.
