What is an allergy?

By Definition, “Allergies are abnormal or inappropriate reactions of the nervous system that occur in response to otherwise harmless substances.”

Alternative Medicine Encyclopedia

An allergy is defined as the body’s inappropriate reaction to an otherwise harmless substance. This is why most people can drink milk, eat peanuts and spend time outdoors even during the peak of spring bloom. Some people have weaker immune systems than others which creates a genetic predisposition to conditions such as allergies and asthma but the substances that cause the chronic symptoms in some people are individually harmless in the vast majority of the population. The reasoning is the nervous system mistakenly believes that a specific and otherwise harmless substance is toxic or poisonous and triggers histamines to fight and expel the substance from the body. If you research allergies, you’ll find a number of different explanations for how somebody develops an allergy but everyone is in agreement that it’s a combination of genetic predisposition, a weakened immune system and in many allergy sufferers simply learned inappropriate causal association in the brain. Almost everyone can identify a food such as shell fish, a medication or environmental substance that never caused any discomfort and later in life triggered an allergic reaction.

In many cases, the negative association with a substance is caused by a trauma the body experiences. The brain assumes the substance caused the trauma and the next time the substance is in proximity to the individual, the brain assumes the trauma is soon to follow. It is a simple causal association, much like Pavlovian conditioning. In an effort to save you from going through the trauma, the brain tries to expel the substance triggering an allergic reaction.
Even though we know the problem is simply a learned response or association, the traditional treatment approach is medication designed to stop the production of histamine. Our approach is different, we believe in a school of thought that reasons, if a reaction can be learned, it can therefore be unlearned. Through Pavlovian conditioning or positive conditioning, we can teach the body to respond in a neutral manner.

“Exposure to allergens at certain times when the body’s defenses are lowered or weakened, such as a viral infection or pregnancy, seems to contribute to the development of allergies.” — National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease

Patient Testimonials

"My 14 year old daughter has always had minor allergies. Recently her symptoms have started to get worse.  Everyday she would wake up congested and had dark circles under her eyes.  I took her to an ENT who said her sinuses were blocked. He prescribed a nasal spray.  The nasal spray helped, but it became part of her daily routine.  When I heard about Advanced Allergy I decided to give it a try. She noticed an immediate improvement.  After a few visits all her symptoms were gone. She loved having the treatments done and said it was like a mini massage on her spine. I like the fact that it is all natural and she doesn't have to rely on medication. Now she wakes up refreshed and feeling great!"

"I had been suffering from seasonal allergy symptoms since I was a teenager. For many, many years I tried all the conventional testing and treatments.  I had taken most of the prescription pills and sprays. I had sampled homeopathic remedies.  As each new round of treatments failed to ease the sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes that made it difficult to go outside on many days each Spring and Fall, I would go back to over the counter medications. These, too, rarely brought any relief."
 
"Over the last several months, working with Jen at Care Chiropractic Center, I experienced a breakthrough. By applying Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, the folks at Care Chiropractic Center were able to methodically clear me of my most severe allergies and I experienced the best Autumn in memory – free of the allergy symptoms that had been my companion for much of my life.  It has been a game-changing experience for me to be able to head outdoors without hesitation to enjoy golfing, rolling around on the grass with my kids, or even cutting the lawn."
