Stressed Out and Sneezing

Research has shown that high levels of stress can cause your allergies to become worse.  Mental stress can upset the balance of your nervous system and immune system.  If your nervous system is overstimulated with stress, it can affect the response of your immune system to an allergen.  By decreasing mental stress, your immune system can function better and head off many allergies at the pass.

Exciting new research has showcased how stress reduction can reduce the symptoms we associate with seasonal allergies.  Meditation and chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce stress levels.  And with reduced stress levels, your immune system has the potential to function at a higher level.  Feeling more relaxed is something all of us could benefit from - and it may even help reduce your seasonal allergies.

- Physical, chemical and emotional stress can cause your immune system to become hypersensitive

- A hypersensitive immune system often overreacts to a potential threat resulting in worsening allergies

- Reduce stress, and allergies, with a stress reducing activity like exercise, meditation or even getting adjusted!

Aside from putting you in a bad mood, being over-stressed has far reaching effects on your body.  If you 
"start to feel your allergies coming on" find stress-reducing activities that you enjoy.  It may be reading a book, meditating, getting a massage, or perhaps even getting a chiropractic adjustment.  Feeling better mentally and reducing your seasonal allergies are just a few of the benefits you can expect by lowering your stress levels!

 Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!
