Antibiotics Have Made Our Generation Weaker
Researchers and scientists agree that there is a genetic component to the presence of allergies. Kids born from parents with allergies are more likely to develop allergies than children whose parents do not have them. However, there must be an environmental trigger. Over the recent decades, we have become more hyper-vigilant about “germs” and bacteria while we use antibiotics and sanitizers more than ever in history. Unfortunately, these can actually cause more allergies to develop. This is why many health-conscious people take probiotics for allergies.
Researchers have hypothesized that improved hygiene, vaccinations, use of antibiotics, sterile food, pesticides and pollution all have altered or decreased the presence of friendly microbes in our bodies. We have reduced possible exposure to the bad things that gives our immune system a stimulating workout, which is helpful in our daily life. Animals living in the wild constantly get exposed to toxic chemicals and microbes and their immune systems allow them to live for years. Under these conditions, our sluggish immunities wouldn’t allow us to live in the wild for 3 months without the technology we have today for sterilization. We no longer have the developed natural resistance to common allergens and we suffer from allergies that can range from mild nuisances to severe chronic conditions.
Probiotics for Allergies
Each human has an inner ecosystem that is altered with everything you put in it and every action you do with your body. Just as Earth’s ecosystems can be imbalanced, yours needs to be as well. When your body is in microbial balance, your intestines are teeming with beneficial bacteria and yeast that keep your immune system strong. With the right balance of beneficial microflora, you can fight off allergens and infections(viral, fungal and bacterial). Unfortunately, the diet of Americans and the western world include a majority of processed foods with environmental toxins while being in constant stress. These result in an epidemic for your inner ecosystem. You can see this in the rise of allergies and childhood disease and disorders, like autism.
Probiotics supplements are a cutting-edge breakthrough that may revolutionize your health and prevent, remedy and get rid of allergies. Consuming probiotics, food and supplement, can boost your immunity with little risk or drawback. They are especially important for pregnant mothers as the flora of the mother will channel with her baby. Probiotics have been a proven effective remedy in preventing E. coli infection and well as birch and cedar pollen allergy.
For nearly all allergies, especially for those to food, probiotics have these positive benefits for your body:
- Improve function of the mucous membrane of the intestines
- Prevent growth of bad bacteria
- Stimulate production of immune enhancing substances
- Direct influence of the immune system’s responses.
I have personally tried many probiotic foods and supplements and I have a few favorites. Ultimate Flora by Renewlife changed my life dramatically. After the first couple of days, my digestion was smooth, my body felt clean and functional, and my allergies DISAPPEARED. This has led me to believe that probiotics are essential to relieving and getting rid of allergies and that they may have something to do with the root cause of them. Cultured vegetables, kefir, kombucha, yogurt and sauerkraut are also very beneficial and natural probiotic foods that I incorporate into my diet every day.
This is nature’s and our ancestors’ best kept secrets. They used probiotics for allergies for millenia. Discover the benefits that you’ve been missing and restore your body’s ecosystem to health once again to feel your maximum potential, clear from allergies and happy once again.
