Stop Your Allergies From Worsening And Get Allergy Tested Today

Over the past years, there has been an uptick in the number of people suffering from food and environmental allergies. Coupled with a 50% increase in asthma cases just in the last decade and an increasingly long pollen season, this trend has made allergies an always more concerning – and sometimes life-threatening – condition for many. 

To make things worse, suffering from allergies means a lot more than simply dealing with frequent sneezing. If you are an allergy sufferer with lifelong pain conditions, the widespread inflammation caused by exposure to allergens exacerbates chronic pain and contributes to fatigue, discomfort, limited range of motion, and other symptoms such as headaches. 

Ultimately, suffering from allergies can get in the way of your daily life and health for months at a time, and force you to rely on medications to manage your symptoms. 

But when choosing the Neuragenex NFPM protocol as the first line of treatment for allergy-induced inflammation, you can start living a life free of chronic pain without drugs.

Why Allergy Immunotherapy Beats Traditional Allergy Treatment

Allergy immunotherapy is a great way to manage allergies. It helps gradually desensitize your body to the allergens causing exacerbated pain or inflammation. This means your body won't respond as severely if exposed to those allergens. It's a more effective way to manage your allergies than other traditional allergy treatments as well. The following are some of the reasons why allergy immunotherapy is so beneficial:

Improve Sleep

Improved Sleep

People with severe allergies often experience disturbed sleep due to chronic sneezing, coughing, and other symptoms. Allergy immunotherapy can help reduce these symptoms, improving your sleep quality and overall well-being.

Breath Easier

Breathe Easier

Allergy immunotherapy helps reduce inflammation of the nasal passages, improving breathing and relieving other allergy-related symptoms. This means you won't have to rely on medication as much, making it a more natural and cost-effective way to manage your allergies.

Stop Medication

Stop the Medications

Medications for allergies can only provide temporary relief from symptoms and don't address the underlying cause of your allergies. On the other hand, allergy immunotherapy is designed to help alleviate symptoms in the long run so you can eventually stop taking medications altogether. Additionally, avoiding medications can help reduce your risk of side effects.

Reduce Environmental Irritation

Reduce Environmental Irritation

Allergy immunotherapy can help reduce your exposure to environmental allergens, which can help reduce irritation and inflammation. This means you won't have to worry about having an allergic reaction when you're out and about.

Allergic Rhinitis And Its Role In Systemic Inflammation

You are not just imagining it: if you suffer from chronic pain conditions such as arthritis or neuropathy, the pain and discomfort feel more intense when you are experiencing seasonal allergies. 

To understand the connection between pain and allergies, it is crucial to clarify what happens to the immune system when you are exposed to external substances. 

The immune system is composed of several tissues, organs, and cells, which work together to protect the body against external harmful microorganisms like bacteria and viruses. Your body’s immune response ensures that antigens (foreign substances and toxins) are quickly identified, kept away from vital tissues, and, in the event of an invasion, are efficiently fought back. 

A critical role in this process is played by antibodies such as Immunoglobulin E (IgE), which are proteins responsible for identifying harmful substances and triggering the immune response. However, sometimes, antibodies identify a substance as harmful even if it isn’t. 

When this happens, each time you are exposed to this substance (known as an allergen), your antibodies will trigger the immune response. This causes the release of histamines, a compound responsible for increasing the levels of inflammation throughout the body in an attempt to fight the “invader”. 

During an allergic reaction, the levels of inflammation rise rapidly and spread throughout the body, uncontrolled. This condition – known as allergy-induced systemic inflammation – causes a cascade of symptoms, including hives, rashes, and low blood pressure. 

In severe cases, histamine-containing cells can lead to what’s known as anaphylaxis, a life-threatening medical event that requires emergency care. 

If you are allergic to environmental elements such as pollen, the chances are that you have experienced allergic rhinitis or the inflammation of respiratory tissues. 

This inflammatory condition affects 400 million people worldwide and causes well-known symptoms such as itchy eyes, a blocked nose, coughing, sneezing, and itching on the roof of your mouth. Sometimes, rhinitis can also progress into serious respiratory conditions, such as asthma attacks, breathing troubles, and blockages to the airways.

But what is not as well-known is the fact that allergic rhinitis – and the spike in inflammation levels triggered by an allergen – can exacerbate any other painful condition you may have. 

For example, if you suffer from chronic disorders such as osteoarthritis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and neuropathy, allergy-induced inflammation can worsen swelling, stiffness, redness, joint pain, and mobility, thus intensifying the pain you experience. 

But you are not alone in your fight against chronic pain. Thanks to the whole-person treatment approach, you can address the underlying cause of your allergies and mitigate your immune response to substances like pollen.

When An Allergy Test Becomes Necessary

Undergoing an allergy test to determine what substances your immune system is sensitive to is the first step to avoiding allergic reactions and managing inflammation. 

But allergy testing is also vital to determine how environmental factors, food allergies, and substances contained in medicines interact with your chronic pain condition. 

If you are allergic to a certain ingredient, pollen, pet dander, or drug, you may inadvertently raise the levels of inflammation within your body, which increases the pain, swelling, and stiffness deriving from disorders like osteoarthritis, arthritis, and neuropathy

At the same time, if an undiagnosed allergy is the culprit behind your chronic pain, simply treating your symptoms may not be effective in the long term. That is why, the first step to treating chronic pain is to exclude the possibility that allergies are responsible for your condition. 

Through allergy testing, a specialist will determine what substances trigger a spike in systemic inflammation and pain, and help you ease your symptoms through allergen avoidance, immunotherapy, and pain management protocols. 

Some of the tests allergists may use to detect allergies include:

  • Skin testing: During this test (also known as a prick or scratch test), a small concentration of a certain allergen is delivered through the skin. The allergist will monitor your body’s reaction closely to determine what substances your immune system is sensitive to. 
  • Blood tests: Specific blood tests can be performed to detect allergies without involving exposure to allergens. This type of test is recommended for individuals who are likely to have a severe reaction if exposed to allergens or are taking medications that may influence the results of a skin test. 

Other tests – such as provocation tests and food allergy tests – may also be performed by your healthcare provider. 

Given that you could be allergic to virtually any substance and that each allergic reaction can be entirely unpredictable, allergy testing is essential to avoid medical emergencies and prevent severe complications. 

Ultimately, when it comes down to treating chronic pain, identifying and addressing the underlying causes of your condition is essential. 

That is why you should start by establishing the presence (or absence) of allergies that may be the root cause of your pain. Once you have determined what’s causing your pain condition, the whole-person, non-invasive, and non-pharmaceutical protocol can help you treat your condition efficiently. 

The Neuragenex NFPM Protocol For Allergy-Induced Pain and Inflammation

So, testing for allergies is the first step to addressing your pain condition effectively. But once you and your healthcare provider have a clear picture of the causes, symptoms, and nature of your chronic pain, you should start looking for an efficient treatment plan that does not involve taking antihistamines or pain medications daily. 

That’s where Neuragenex Neurofunctional Pain Management comes in. 

Neuragenex Neurofunctional Pain Management is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, and non-chiropractic approach that uses innovative treatments and regenerative medicine to treat the root causes of chronic pain without drugs or surgery. 

But above all, Neuragenex Neurofunctional Pain Management is a whole-person approach that focuses on addressing all of those lifestyle, medical, and environmental factors that may be impacting your health. 

Here’s what to expect when choosing Neuragenex Neurofunctional Pain Management as your first thought, first choice, and first step in the treatment of chronic pain.

Immunotherapy in Powder Springs, Georgia

Immunotherapy represents a valid, non-pharmaceutical, and long-term treatment for allergies and allergy-induced inflammation. Immunotherapy programs involve being exposed to small concentrations of the allergen that trigger an allergic reaction. 

Over time, the dosage is increased to retrain the immune system to recognize a certain substance as not harmful. In turn, after immunotherapy, your body will no longer produce high levels of inflammation – or an “allergic reaction” – when you are exposed to a certain allergen. 

Beyond managing your body’s response to harmless substances and preventing life-threatening events like anaphylaxis, immunotherapy can also be used to increase the number and efficacy of immune cells. 

This helps your immune system fight back harmful microorganisms and can counteract the complications of chronic disorders that compromise your immune response, such as diabetes.

Avoidance and Education About Allergens in Powder Springs, Georgia

Immunotherapy, when coupled with electroanalgesia and IV therapy, can have the triple action of reducing painful sensations, promoting overall health, and strengthening your immune system. 

However, these protocols cannot reach their peak efficiency without allergen avoidance and education. A specialized lifestyle counselor will guide you in the process of understanding and addressing those lifestyle factors that are exacerbating your chronic pain condition – including allergen exposure at home, in the workplace, or through your diet. 

Through a lifestyle counseling program, you’ll also be able to adjust your nutrition, introduce an exercise routine, live more actively, quit inflammatory habits like drinking alcohol and smoking, and make choices that contribute to reducing inflammation, easing pain, and ultimately magnifying your quality of life.
