Allergy Diagnosis and Treatment from Our

Wilmington Chiropractors

Allergies can make your life miserable in many more ways than the standard runny nose or watery eyes. Allergic reactions have been tied to such debilitating conditions as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma and eczema. If your quality of life has become limited due to any or all of these problems, then you owe it to yourself to seek help. Either Wilmington chiropractor here at Lodes Chiropractic Center (Dr. Lodes or Dr. Wharton) can diagnose the underlying triggers of your allergy symptoms and prescribe natural, safe, effective treatments to get your allergies under control.

Allergies and the Problems they Cause

An allergy is an immune system response to a perceived threat that has invaded the body. These invaders are referred to as antigens. The immune system produces histamine (an inflammatory agent) and antibodies to destroy these antigens -- which is a good thing when the antigen is an actual danger, such as a viral or bacterial infection. But the bodies of individuals with allergies overreact to harmless antigens such as pollen, specific foods or fabric fibers, perfumes and so on, creating extreme physical reactions. Red, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, a runny nose and skin rashes (dermatitis) are common examples.

But allergies can also play a role in more serious disorders. Eczema, for instance, can grow terribly itchy and painful, sometimes cracking into open wounds that invite secondary infection. Some allergies produce inflammation and swelling in the airway can trigger asthma attacks. Food allergies have been known to set off the chronic diarrhea and other discomforts of irritable bowel syndrome. Mold allergies seem to be associated with the muscle pain and malaise of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. You may even experience multiple allergy-related conditions simultaneously.

Ask Your Chiropractor in Wilmington About Safe, Natural Allergy Solutions

Many people instinctively respond to allergies and allergy-related problems with drugs, but these substances only dull the surface symptoms temporarily; they do nothing to address the underlying allergy. That's where Lodes Chiropractic Center comes in. Your chiropractor in Wilmington can perform a detailed evaluation of your symptoms, medical history and current physical condition while also running specific tests to isolate the allergen in question. This enables us to suggest nutritional or lifestyle changes that help you stay allergy free.

Bax 3000 Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy

An abnormal stress response may also impair the immune system's ability to function normally -- and this may play a key role in your body's exaggerated reactions to harmless substances. We can address your stress response using Bax 3000 Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy. The Bax 3000 Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy system measures and records your body's electric impedance. Abnormal levels which suggest stress are then treated as the equipment administers light therapy to specific acupuncture points. This re-trains the brain to produce a neutral response where it previously signaled the release of histamine.

  • "I've been going to Dr. Lodes for over 20 years. He knows exactly what needs adjusting and his adjustments last. I've recommended him to several friends who are nurses and they live him too. The staff is so friendly and helpful and most of the time they can get me in the same day I call. He suggests exercises that help my issues and are simple to.do. I love this place!!!"

  • "I've been to a few different chiropractors in the area and once I found Lodes Chiropractic, I haven't been anywhere else. I have been a patient for about 10 years now, and I cannot say enough great things about the practice. Both doctors are extremely thorough, knowledgeable and always striving to help you feel your best. Everyone in the office is kind, caring and helpful. I also went to both doctors throughout my pregnancy which helped ease any pain I was having tremendously. I highly recommend this practice!"
