Chiropractic Treatment Can Improve Asthma Symptoms


May Is Asthma Awareness Month

When it comes to asthma, the numbers speak for themselves: Asthma cases have seen an increase by over 60 percent since the 1980s. Asthma-related deaths amount to 5,000 cases per year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that roughly 20 million people in the United States presently have asthma. In some cases, those who have the condition do not even know it, attributing their symptoms to other maladies.

Unlike twenty years ago, asthma and the use of inhalers are now widespread. It is no longer unusual to find many children in a single classroom experiencing breathing difficulties. In the present climate, researchers are left to speculate why asthma cases have seen such a marked increase. Genetics and environmental exposure to possible allergens are likely culprits. Nowadays, people are exposed to a vast amount of potential allergens such as cleaning products, and formaldehyde preservatives that go into carpets and furniture.

Air quality also plays a factor. Drafty houses that bring in fresh air to dry and freshen up the space also clear out mold and other allergens. Unfortunately, many modern houses are too insulated; basements, for example, are known for increasing mold exposure. Those who spend a lot of time in them are likely to have regular contact with mold and other allergens.

How Does Reflexology Work?

Reflexologists understand that reflexology helps release stress, which in turn helps the body heal and regenerate itself.

One theory is that reflexology works with the central nervous system. This theory builds on research done in the 1890s by Sir Henry Head and Sir Charles Sherrington, who began to show through their research that a neurological relationship exists between the skin and the internal organs, and that the whole nervous system adjusts to a stimulus.

According to the theory, the reflexologist's application of pressure to feet, hands, or ears sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves in these extremities to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level.

This enhances overall relaxation, brings internal organs and their systems into a state of optimum functioning, and increases blood supply (which brings additional oxygen and nutrients to cells and enhances waste removal). It positively affects the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, immune, and neuropeptide systems in the body.
