Child, Allergies, Spring, SneezingWhen Allergies Spring into Season

With Spring in season, allergies are also in season. That means your child is going to be sniffling and sneezing more than usual, and that will probably mean you’ll be running out to the drug store more and more to try to find relief for them. Here are some of the more common allergy medications given to children.

Common Allergy Medication

  • Allegra
  • Benadryl
  • Claritin
  • Zyrtec
  • Sudafed
  • Clarinex

The Odds of Allergies

Now, it is interesting to consider that only 10% of children suffer from allergies, which obviously means 90% don’t. That means you can put 10 children in the same environment, and only one of those children will have an allergic reaction to something.

If you put 10 children in a room full of cats and one of those children begins to sniffle and sneeze, it stands to reason that that child is allergic to cats. In the same way, there is a reason certain children react to certain environments that trigger allergic reactions.

If your child suffers from allergies, it may be because they have an overactive immune system. Their immune system overreacts to its environment because there’s an interference with the nervous system. That interference may be due to misalignments in the upper neck vertebrae, which lead to the brain’s inability to properly regulate the immunity throughout the body.

Restoring the Body’s Immune System

Though, there is a way to restore the way the body functions. It will take more than a pill. It will take seeking out the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They can examine your upper cervical spine for any misalignments that may be the underlying cause of your child’s allergies.

Then, they will make any necessary adjustments to your child’s upper cervical spine, so their nervous system and immune system will begin to function properly again. Then, if you put them in pollen infested environment or a room full of cats with nine other children, they won’t be the child sniffling and sneezing.
