Allergies are a disorder of the immune system. The immune system overreacts to a typically non-harmful substance (cat dander, pollen, peanuts, dairy products, dust, molds, etc.), and initiates a response to neutralize and flush out the allergen. The results of this immune response are swelling, itching, runny nose and eyes, sneezing, diarrhea, to name a few. The immune system is highly effective in ridding the body of what it perceives as harmful.
Chiropractic is not a treatment for allergies per se, but it has helped allergy sufferers for years. Chiropractic aims to remove interference to the nervous system by specifically correcting a condition called subluxation. What controls the immune system? Many things, including your spleen, bone marrow, adrenal glands, just to name a few. What controls all of these things? It is your brain and nervous system. In 1993, a group of researchers discovered a group of cells at the top of the spinal cord that form a direct pathway from the nervous system to the immune system. Any interference to this pathway would likely result in an improperly functioning immune system. A properly functioning immune system is less likely to produce allergy symptoms. Let us help you get on a path to better health by reducing your suffering from allergies and allow your immune system to function at its peak effiency.
Are you or your children addicted to Mountain Dew? Then you should know what you're drinking!
Mountain Dew, Squirt, Fresca, and Fanta all contain Brominated vegetable oil or BVO. BVO is a toxic chemical that is banned in many countries because it competes with iodine for receptor sites in the body, which can lead to hypothyroidism , autoimmune disease, and cancer! The main ingredient, bromine, is a poisonous, corrosive chemical, linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.
BVO is a patented Flame Retardant for plastics that has been BANNED in foods throughout Europe and Japan. Brominated vegetable oil, which acts as an emulsifier in citrus-flavored soda drinks, is found in about 10% of sodas sold in the United States.
