Shift Your Thinking, Shift Your Health: Allergies

Becoming a Health Expert

It is important to become your own health expert. We want people to change the way they view their health so they can truly live healthy lives. In the long run, being your own health expert avoids falling victim to the vast amount of false information on health. Rather than believing everything you are told, you should dig deeper into understanding why you are doing, taking, and eating the things you do. We tend to call seasons by their symptoms, such as allergy season, when we shouldn’t be accepting these symptoms to begin with.

Finding the Cause of Allergies

It is common for people to take many different allergy medications when they experience sinus problems. If we have symptoms such as a runny nose, our body is doing its job. Symptoms are our body’s way of adapting to the environment it is in and removing interference within the body. Allergies are not only subject to environments. They can also be triggered by food, seasons, and more. Instead of going through the motions when you experience allergies, here are five simple tips that can transform your body’s response.

Five Simple Steps to Eliminate Allergies Naturally

1. Local Honey

Consuming a tablespoon of local honey each day has many benefits, specifically with decreasing allergy symptoms. Buying honey that is local is important. Don’t use just any honey in the store because local honey helps your body respond better to its environment by adapting to the environment.

2. Chiropractic Care

There is a strong correlation between adjustments and allergies. Chiropractic care helps your body respond to stress. If your body is in a fight or flight mode, an adjustment can shift the body into homeostasis (a balanced state). Adjustments remove interference to the spine, which is where 90% of the brain stimulation comes from. Adjustments can help allergies, digestion, sleep, and much more.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

This is a natural remedy for allergies. You can take 1 tablespoon in the morning and evening. Apple cider vinegar balances the acidity in your stomach. Because each part of the body affects one another, digestive issues could be the reason you are experiencing allergy symptoms. In addition to ACV, you can take hydrochloric acid, aloe vera, and chamomile.

4. Probiotic

When we take medications such as antibiotics, it kills off good bacteria in our bodies. Our body is made up of bacteria because it is an important part of our health. Probiotics assist in replenishing good bacteria into the gut. Find a natural sourced 20 billion-plus probiotic to restore the imbalance within your body. If you have digestive issues, other areas of the body are vulnerable to being affected.

5. Testing

We offer multiple tests that can help find the root of your symptoms. When you follow the following tips and continue to experience symptoms, it is important to dig deeper. The main tests you should take involve stool testing and food allergy testing. These tests will identify any bacteria, infection, parasite, or infection your body is experiencing. It also tells you which foods you are allergic to which make your body inflamed. When you identify the root cause of your symptoms, you can eliminate the interference within your body for it to heal and function properly.
