There are many signs of an allergic reaction: Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing and skin rash. More serious reactions can include constricted air passageways, vomiting and even death. All this from a handful of peanuts, an encounter with a cat or microscopic grains of pollen in the air!
Your body inappropriately perceives the allergen as a threat.
If everyone reacted to these common substances, we could fix the blame squarely on the nut, dander, shellfish or pollen. But not everyone reacts. So, if it is not the allergen, then what is it?
Your nervous system orchestrates your immune system, glandular system, and every other system that reacts inappropriately to an allergen. These systems help you respond and adapt to the world around you. But suffering from uncontrollable sneezing around a house cat is an inappropriate reaction. If your nervous system isn’t working right, you don’t work right. Rather than direct our attention to the countless potential allergens, we locate and reduce the disturbances we find to your nervous system.
