Reduce Sinus Problems and Inflammation with Chiropractic

There’s no doubt about the fact that sinus inflammation and pressure is extremely painful, so much so that it can affect how you live your daily life.  Sinus problems can be so frustrating that they may have you immediately reaching for medication to relieve the pain.  But medication may not always be the best option.  Medication is only a short-term solution to sinus problems as the issues always return, often with a vengeance, after medication wears off.  Not only that, but medications can also have harmful side effects that can cause a slew of other problems, in addition to more sinus pain and pressure.  When sinus problems have you reaching for medication, consider another option.  Chiropractic care from a Lithia Springs chiropractor will not only relieve sinus problems and alleviate pressure long term, but it can also offer many other amazing benefits for improving overall health.

Improve Immunity to Improve Health

Frequently, inflammation can be responsible for a lot of the sinus problems we experience.  Increasing the function of the immune system can improve our overall health to bring about relief.  But how exactly can we better the immune system?  The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system, which is responsible for communicating with other systems in the body.  Spinal misalignments can cause nerve interference that disrupts communication to other parts of the body such as the immune system, causing it work at less than its best. Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar can perform gentle adjustments to remove spinal misalignments, increase immunity, and reduce inflammation within the body to bring about sinus pain relief.

How Can I Find Relief from Allergies?

Coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, itchy throat… allergy season in Georgia is in full swing! Even though it’s early March and the temperatures are still cold, seasonal allergies are starting to take effect, and allergy sufferers are starting to avoid the outdoors and carry tissues around with them constantly.

Seasonal allergies are one of the biggest health complaints for people across the US, and even more so in the South. Not much is known about what causes allergies, but since not everyone experiences them, it’s clear that they result as some sort of miscommunication between the brain and the body. Some studies have linked allergies and stress, while others simply cite genetics as a reason for most allergies.

While seasonal allergies are the most common, many people also have allergies to various foods, medication, or substances. These types of allergies are generally more severe, with reactions including hives, wheezing, itchy skin, and even anaphylaxis. The way that our body responds to anything we’re allergic to is similar, whether it’s a medication or a food, and the main difference is simply in the severity and manifestation of reactions.

Immune System Dysfunction

When your immune system decides that a particular thing is harmful (even though it may not be), it creates antibodies to fight it. Whenever you come into contact with that substance again, your body sends out histamines to fight off the so-called invader, which results in allergic reactions and allergy symptoms.

Since we know that most allergens are not harmful to our bodies in general, our body’s response is incorrect. Allergies of any kind occur because of an immune system dysfunction. While allergy medications may get rid of the symptoms, they are not treating the root cause of the problem, which is the dysfunction within the […]

Allergies

People who suffer from allergies know how difficult it is to obtain relief from the symptoms that create a battle within your body. Regularly they search the internet and their local drug stores for anything that can help to make their day to day activities easier to manage. Being familiar with how your body handles allergic reactions and what causes allergies in the first place is usually a great start to bringing about relief.

Anytime our body has an unknown presence in it, our immune system begins working hard to eradicate it. By going into overdrive, your immune system creates antibodies and histamines to counteract the invader so that the body is protected. Unfortunately, a large number of these reactions are to allergens that are not a threat to your body at all, so the battle never needed to happen in the first place. What can we do to prevent this from taking place?

Typical Allergy Care

When someone is suffering from allergies, the first method to deal with them in the United States is medication. If you search your local stores, there are myriads of medications like antihistamines, decongestants, and others that you can purchase to attempt to handle your allergies and their symptoms. Doctors can prescribe corticosteroids or even give allergy shots to help, but today the trend of limiting or eliminating medication is growing. Receiving care from a Lithia Springs chiropractor is changing the lives of allergy sufferers, and research has proven that chiropractic is a great option for those with allergies, both with short-term and long-term relief and overall health.
