When Shawn first came into our office he was not able to eat certain foods because of how he reacted to them. By using the ASA biofeedback system, nutritional support for digestion and Chiropractic care, he was able to eat foods that he hadn’t been able to eat in years.
Technically, a food allergy occurs when the body releases immunoglobin E (IgE) when an allergen is introduced into the system. The body developed this system to rid the body of potentially toxic substances, however in the case of allergies the body is identifying normal foods as toxic. Common allergic reactions start upon ingestion at the throat, and continue in different degrees of severity that can affect the whole body. Sometimes the body responds to an allergy by vomiting or diarrhea. If the allergy is severe enough, it can affect breathing and skin. The most common food allergies are eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, shellfish, and pesticides. Allergies are most commonly found in foods that are eaten frequently in the culture.
There is no cure for food allergies, and most of the time, avoidance of the allergic substance is necessary to avoid a reaction. Using the ASA system, nutritional – digestive support and Chiropractic care we have seen symptoms of these over reactions in the nervous system improve. If a person is overloaded with stress, unhealthy eating, and sedentary lifestyle a person is more likely to develop or maintain allergic reactions to foods that they eat as well as seasonal allergies. We work on addressing all of these factors to help create a healthier immune/digestive system. A healthy digestive / nervous system can help the body handle the presence of an allergen without causing a reaction. Food allergies can often be the result of a compromised immune system. Repairing subluxations in the spine as well as providing nutritional and digestive support can help boost the immune system. We have seen improvement with patients who were very limited in what they can eat and now can eat a bigger variety of foods.
