Understanding your own body is the answer to all health problems. Nobody can tell you what is best for yourself!
The best way to relieve and manage your allergies is understanding what is causing them naturally. These allergic diseases that we have to food and pollen are a result of hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that causes problems in some people.
Every person’s body is unique in what they react to and just because you haven’t reacted to something doesn’t mean that you won’t react to it in the future. You can become sensitized to anything at any point due to many reasons.
ANY bodily symptom can be a result of an allergic reaction or intolerance
The symptoms of allergies include red or itchy eyes, rash, runny nose, trouble breathing, swelling, digestive sensitivity and poisoning. Common allergens include pollen and specific food proteins. The site of allergic injection in the body results in the cells of the immune system to release histamine, an inflammatory chemical. The inflammation is what causes symptoms.
Most allergies or intolerances occur in the presence of certain proteins, food and environmental. Ninety percent of allergic responses are to foods from milk, soy, eggs, wheat, nuts, fish and shellfish. Other food allergies are considered “rare.”
The immune system is like a student; It learns and grows every day. If you nourish it now, you will feel much better later
The first time your body encounters an allergen, plasma cells release immunoglobin E, an antibody specific to an allergen. It attaches to the surface of your mast cells, which are found in great numbers in your surface tissue near the mucous membranes in the nose and in your skin. Here, the mast cells mediate inflammatory responses by releasing chemical mediators like histamine.
The second time your body encounters a particular allergen, your mast cells become activated and release a plethora of inflammatory chemicals that trigger a cascade of symptoms that are associated with allergies: sore throat, runny nose, cough, itchiness, diarrhea, bloating etc. The inflammation caused by histamine can constrict your airways like in asthma or cause blood vessels to become more permeable.
Pollen is a very common mast cell activator, but other agents can trigger these processes as well. Mold, dust, airborne particles, dust mites, pet dander, cockroaches, environmental chemicals, cleaning products, personal care products and food can all cause allergic reactions.
Masking your symptoms with drugs is causing long term damage
Alternative allergy treatments can work to your benefit, but analysis of plausible myths and facts will set your journey in a positive direction. We’ve all heard that diet and exercise benefit our health but sometimes it just doesn’t ever seem like we are healthy enough or that we don’t know how to go about being healthy for our own unique body.
Listening to what somebody else says works for them will not always be the solution for you. This is especially true for medications, as some work and some don’t. Nature remedies like local honey, neti pots, acupuncture, diet and immunization can work for anybody, however.
Working to understanding and experiment with the root cause of your allergies will help you manage them as well as get rid of them. This website will analyze the various ways we can go about this. Please help me out in the comments so we can have a discussion about what you think is best for helping people solve the root causes of their allergies.
