Since your brain is the master controller of your nervous system and your nervous system controls your immune system, it's important to make sure it is working at it's optimum level.  Any misalignments of your spine will reduce the bodies ability to compensate due to stress.  By keeping your spine in alignment it reduce the inflammatory response your body goes through which helps reduce the negative stresses that your body esperiences especially during allergy season.  By minimizing the stress they body is under allows it to deal with the stress from allergies.; thus reducing they symptoms of allergies. 

Relieve seasonal allergies with these tried-and-true techniques. By Mayo Clinic Staff   Spring means flower buds and blooming trees and if you're one of the millions of people who have seasonal allergies, it also means sneezing, congestion, runny nose and other bothersome symptoms. Seasonal allergies also called hay fever and allergic rhinitis can make you miserable. But before you settle for plastic flowers and artificial turf, try these simple strategies to keep seasonal allergies under control.

Reduce your exposure to allergy triggers-By Mayo Clinic Staff 
 To reduce your exposure to the things that trigger your allergy signs and symptoms (allergens): 
  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days  the best time to go outside is after a good rain, which helps clear pollen from the air. ·         
  • Delegate lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores that stir up allergens. ·        
  •  Remove clothes you've worn outside; you may also want to shower to rinse pollen from your skin and hair.
  •  Don't hang laundry outside pollen can stick to sheets and towels. 
  •  Wear a dust mask if you do outside chores. 

Take extra steps when pollen counts are highBy Mayo Clinic Staff 
Seasonal allergy signs and symptoms can flare up when there's a lot of pollen in the air. These steps can help you reduce your exposure:         
  • Check your local TV or radio station, your local newspaper, or the Internet for pollen forecasts and current pollen levels. ·         
  • If high pollen counts are forecasted, start taking allergy medications before your symptoms start.          
  • Close doors and windows at night or any other time when pollen counts are high. ·         
  • Avoid outdoor activity in the early morning when pollen counts are highest.   

Keep indoor air clean -By Mayo Clinic Staff 
There's no miracle product that can eliminate all allergens from the air in your home, but these suggestions may help:          
  • Use the air conditioning in your house and car. 
  • If you have forced air heating or air conditioning in your house, use high-efficiency filters and follow regular maintenance schedules.
  • Keep indoor air dry with a dehumidifier.    
  • Use a portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter in your bedroom.         
  • Clean floors often with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter.
