Allergies & Asthma
Asthma is another one of those conditions with an “unknown” etiology (cause).
The best that traditional medicine can come up with about asthma is that it’s genetic and although there is no cure, they can “control” your asthma condition with life long medications. We couldn’t disagree more. Again, we see asthma rates soaring. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Asthma rates have rose from 1 in 14 people in 2001 to 1 in 12 people in 2009. An additional 5,000,000 cases in just 8 short years. If asthma is genetic then why are we seeing such an exponential rise now? Didn’t our parents and even our grand-parents have the same genes?
Asthma is caused by abnormal function in the body and allergies. More specifically, asthma is caused by abnormal body function and allergies that are common when exposed to toxins that are most prevalent in “western lifestyle” countries. If we look at the prevalence of asthma worldwide (see figure below) we can clearly see that asthma rates are highest in western countries and some of the lowest rates are found in third world countries where although they have little to no healthcare they aren’t consuming and exposing themselves to the things that are causing asthma.
Our asthma and allergy patients take a whole body approach and follow the RENEW program.
First we look to see if there are any abnormal nerve system stressors to our asthma and allergy patients and if stressors are found we use our advanced chiropractic spinal rehabilitation protocols to Restore nerve system function. Next, we evaluate to see if the persons dietary habits and toxic exposures may be contributing to the problem and if so we begin the process of Eliminating any of these bad foods and/or toxins so that the body can start repairing itself. In addition, we always make sure to Nourish the mind and teach all involved the truth of sickness and disease and how they can become active participants in their recovery. Then we evaluate the patient’s physical health and develop a program to Energize the body with metabolic conditioning designed to build lean muscle and oxygenate the 70 trillion cells of the body. Finally, we make sure to develop a plan of attack going forward so our patients can experience Wellness for life.
