If you struggle with either of these chronic health conditions, you may feel trapped. Many find themselves caught between either suffering or suffering slightly less while taking daily medications. Medication is the traditional method of treatment, and sometimes it can be tough to go against the norm. In fact, TV ads perpetuate the system by making medications sound like a cure.
However, you probably realize that there is no wonder drug for curing sinus and allergy problems. Even if they lessen the symptoms, you sometimes need to supplement with other medications. One drug after another offers relief that is temporary at best.
Sinus problems such as constant pressure are often treated with steroidal sprays that alleviate inflammation. Of course, this only treats one symptom of the problem and does not address the cause of the inflammation.
One potential cause is an upper cervical misalignment. This is because such a misalignment keeps the brainstem from properly communicating with the sinuses. Cut off from HQ, as it were, the sinuses decide to go to work, and the result is sneezing and sniffling.
Allergens are often environmental. Something is resulting in the body putting up its defenses. It’s an automatic reaction. It simply isn’t happening at the right time. The immune system is functioning in that it can fend off intruders. Something is just wrong with the mechanism that determines what constitutes an intruder. The traditional treatment is to use medications that shut down your body’s natural defenses.
However, a far better approach is to help the body’s defense system operate normally. Correcting misalignments so as to keep the head balanced properly can result in better immune system function. When your brain can send communication signal correctly, the result is a superior ability to adjust to the environment.
