When your body comes in contact with an allergen, such as pollen, your immune system is activated to help defend your body and minimise harm. In some people, the immune response too weak, in which case an allergen can overpower the body’s defences. In others, the system is so sensitive that it over-reacts to even harmless substances, and allergies are the result. Either way, the immune system needs an overhaul, to restore it to optimal functioning and allow the body to more effectively deal with intruders.
Osteopaths use many different treatment techniques to influence your immune system.
Treatment of any or all involved body areas may have a positive influence on your immune system, so if you are one of the unlucky ones, keep your osteopath in mind.
