a person with allergies or asthma, the immune system
reacts to harmless
substances such as plant pollen or animal dander.
This creates allergy symptoms
(stuffy nose, watery eyes, skin rash, etc.) or asthma
symptoms (wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath).
An asthma attack can result from an allergic reaction.
Asthma sufferers are more susceptible to having colds
develop into bronchitis, which
can trigger an asthma attack."
Dr. Erin Elster, DC
Upper Cervical Specialist - July 2003
Warning Signs Of Asthma and Allergies:
or throat itches
circles under eyes
- Poor tolerance for exercise
The cost of asthma is estimated at more than $12
billion annually, with direct
costs exceeding $8 billion and lost earnings due
to illness and death adding up to
nearly $5 billion.
If drugs were the answer and medical treatment was
effective, why are more
people getting asthma and why are more people dying
every year because of it?
There has to be a better way!
Dr. Len Schwartz," Introduction to Chiropractic"
New research indicates chiropractic could be beneficial
for some individuals
suffering from either allergies or Crohn’s Disease.
According to Japanese
researcher Dr. Yasuhiko Takeda, president of the
Information and Blood
Circulation Research Institute in Osaka, disorders
of the mid-to-lower back
could have a significant effect on the immune function
of certain allergy and
Crohn’s disease patients. While additional research
is needed, the preliminary
results are both promising and exciting.
