Most likely, someone you know is suffering with this condition. It could be your child, a parent, or someone close to you. There are thousands of Canadian children and adults afflicted with this breathing disorder.
Breathing is a process where your body takes in air from the outside, it passes through your nose, the windpipe, bronchi, and finally to the tiny air sacs (alveoli). Along this pathway the air is filtered, purified, cleansed, warmed, and humidified. This completely amazing process happens under the perfect guidance of your nervous system. If your nervous system fails to guide this process, you lose your ability to breath.
Food or environmental allergies are generally felt to bring on attacks and can be life threatening. These people are condemned to a life of bronchodilators, cortisone, and other drugs, all of which contain side effects, some of which are serious. These side effects can be either immediate or develop over a lifetime of chronic drug use. Asthma is definitely a condition to be avoided. Many researchers have even found that Asthma seems to be related to our vaccination program.
What can you do? Doctors of Chiropractic have been helping children with asthma for years. If you think chiropractors deal only with back pain, you are incorrect! Chiropractic started in 1895 by restoring a patient’s hearing. It started because of a realization that we have a nervous system that runs the body.
Our bodies are self-healing, self-regulating organisms. That means the body is designed to heal itself. Remember that the nervous system is the central computer that runs the whole body and all of its functions, the functions of the legs, arms, digestive system, sinuses, immune system, etc. and even the lungs. As long as the nervous system is allowed to function with no interference, the body should work normally.
Often however, some of the vertebrae of the spine become subluxated or misaligned, affecting the way the nervous system controls body functions.
By correcting subluxations, Chiropractors eliminate interference to the nervous system allowing for normal function, with no drugs!
