Chiropractic and Allergies – Connection? Yes!

By April 13, 2017No Comments

Hooray – it’s Spring! Time to put on some shorts and go for a leisurely hike in the woods. Maybe you’re ready to dust off those golf clubs. How about tackling that flowering vine that’s been creeping toward the house all winter like Audrey in the “Little Shop of Horrors?”

And…Maybe it all sounds like a good idea, but your allergies are acting up. You know that I’m going to tell you to get outdoors anyway, because it’s so good for your health and well-being. But I know it’s more of a challenge when your body’s not functioning at its best. And allergies can be…well…The Kleenex. The runny nose. The congestion. Awful.
Instead, I’m going to tell you a story — about what motivated me to become a chiropractor and family wellness expert. Huh? What’s the connection? You’ll see…

What inspires me every single day are stories like mine that happen for my patients. They come to me with a particular complaint or issue or goals, and find out how the nerve flow factor extends to other parts of their bodies — and their lives!

One patient came to me for relief of her ‘chronic’ back and neck pain, and also completely overcame the TMJD (temporomandibular) disorder she’d had for decades. Another patient sought an adjustment for her back pain, and her hearing improved which was so important to her as a musician!  Another found relief from pain and, as a result, discovered new energy and motivation to lose weight, exercise more, and improve her social life. And a favorite, a young boy of 9 who’s better able to focus in school as a result of his adjustments with me.

Aren’t I lucky to be doing this work? And aren’t you lucky to know that it’s possible to change some things in your life — like the annoyance of allergies — that you never thought you could?
