For many people, allergies contribute to their asthma. Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease characterized by episodes or attacks of difficulty breathing or dyspnea.
Allergic responses may include:
Asthma ranges from mild with occasional symptoms to severe with persistent life altering symptoms. Symptoms can start as early as childhood or develope later in life.
Symptoms are caused by inflammation and narrowing of small airways and may include:
Note: If you have a severe, life threatening asthma attack, call 911 immediately or go directly to the Emergency Room.
Ways to prevent and treat allergies and asthma:
Some patients are able to reduce the intensity of symptoms, frequency of attacks or just improve their ability to breathe without wheezing with chiropractic treatments, nutritional testing and supplements.
Nutritional Testing & Supplementation:
Our office provides Nutrition Response Testing to see what is stressing your lungs, sinuses, eyes, etc. Difficulty breathing or other symptoms are the body's indicater that an area is stressed and requires supplemental nutrients. If there is an irritant that is causing inflammation in any area of your body, a specific supplement can be given to help eliminate the symptom more efficiently then over-the-counter drugs.
Should I stop taking my medication for my allergies and/or asthma? No.
NEVER stop a medication without talking to your prescribing medical doctor first. However, some medications taken for allergies or asthma deplete vital nutrients from the body and/or have other negative side effects. For example, muscle and joint pain, cramps or weakness, nervousness, tremors, headaches or gastric upset. We can reduce those side effects with whole food supplements that will strengthen your body and its ability to deal with the medication.
