Sinus & Allergy Problems Q & A

What are allergies?

Your body does a fantastic job taking care of itself, protecting you against diseases, viruses, and infections. At the core of this protection is your immune system, which responds to threats with antibodies that work to drive the threat out and protect you from harm. And this system works well -- until it doesn’t.

With allergies, your immune system goes a little haywire and overreacts to foreign substances that aren’t harmful, turning them into allergens and your response into an allergic reaction. These responses range from minor nuisances to life-threatening reactions that begin to shut your body down, which is known as anaphylactic shock.

What are the most common allergies?

The most common allergies include:

  • Drug
  • Food
  • Insect sting
  • Pollen
  • Mold
  • Pet
  • Dust mites

Allergic reactions range widely in both type and severity, but generally include:

  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Digestive issues
  • Swelling
  • Narrowing airways

Many of the airborne allergens, such as pollen and pet dander, trigger reactions that can wreak havoc on your sinuses, leading to chronic blockages.

How are allergies and sinus problems treated?

If you suffer from allergies, the doctors at The Balancing Center concentrate on treatments that boost your immune system and increase the natural flow in your body. By restoring balance and flow to your body’s systems, your doctor is able to eliminate blockages and interferences that disrupt your body’s ability to react appropriately.

Ultimately, the goal is to get your body to stop overreacting to allergens by allowing it to clear out interferences that are creating the mixed signals in the first place.

To accomplish this, your doctor turns to several advanced treatment methods, including:

  • NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association), which realigns your top vertebra to restore balance and flow to your spine and regulate your nervous system
  • BEST (bio energetic synchronization technique) to reestablish the full healing potential in your body
  • NET (neuro emotional technique) to address conditioned stress reactions to certain stimuli
  • FMP (foundational movement practices) to work on posture and alignment in your musculoskeletal system, which aids in restoring flow in all of your systems

These treatments work well for both allergies and chronic sinus problems. Your sinuses benefit because of better flow in your body that prevents buildup and swelling in these cavities.
