Allergies & Medications

According to a new study by the Journal of the American Medical Association, they have associated those children and adults that develop allergies in their life to be directly linked to acid-suppressive medications and antibiotic use as an infant. [1]

Yet another perfect reminder, unless it’s an emergency, use conservative management methods before you reach for a magic pill solution. Throughout chiropractic, medicine, or other forms of clinical management of any patient the primary goal is to do no harm. Unless its an emergency, conservative management of any patient needs to be the first step to fixing our overall prospective in our health care system. Especially when we observe the expected need for medications rather than education and self improvement is considered.
