An allergy is a condition in which the immune system reacts abnormally to a foreign substance. Allergies can result from a variety of things, including seasons, foods, animals, insects, drugs, alcohols, molds, pollen, or other environmental substances.
You may be familiar with the sinus symptoms of seasonal allergies, such as sneezing and itchy eyes. But, studies have shown that some chronic pain, including joint pain, may be allergy related. Even seasonal allergies can lead to inflammation and fatigue, which exacerbates body aches and joint pain. Inflammation that occurs in your internal organs due to allergies can result in pain and wear down your immune system, possibly contributing to chronic disease.
KaiZen Medical Group offers allergy testing as a way for you and the staff to better understand the origins of your chronic pain and illness. Knowing if you have a specific allergy helps inform treatment to improve your overall quality of life.
Some insurance plans cover allergy testing. Contact our team with your current health insurance information to see what benefits are offered within your plan.
Treatment depends on the allergy source. If it’s something in the environment that can’t be avoided, you’ll have to treat symptoms. Chiropractic care can also help by clearing up interference in your central nervous system caused by misalignments in your spine. These misalignments can compromise the optimal functioning of your immune system and aggravate allergic reactions. Consult with the staff at KaiZen Medical Group to learn more about the noninvasive, nontoxic steps you can take to manage your allergies.
If you have sensitivities or allergies to particular foods, KaiZen Medical Group can help. You may be given recommendations about foods to avoid and other specific dietary steps to take.
The office also offers a wide range of oral supplements that promote immune system health and optimal wellness. These supplements boost your immune system by reducing inflammation. These “5 to Thrive” supplements include omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D3, probiotics, a multivitamin, and a sleep remedy. The supplements are medical grade, nontoxic, and natural. You may find that after regular treatment, food intolerances fade as your body corrects its own overzealous immune system.
