Allergies

Allergies simply denote that the human body has received too much of a harmful thing, usually a toxin. The allergic reaction is a response of the body over-reacting to an irritant that it can’t process in a healthy way.


 Causes and Risk Factors 

The most common allergies are:

    •    Indoor allergies
    •    Food
    •    Fibers (e.g., wool or cotton)
    •    Substances (e.g., latex)
    •    Chemical or pharmaceutical allergies (e.g., penicillin)
    •    Dust mites
    •    Outdoor allergies
    •    Change in seasons
    •    Grasses
    •    Pollens and blooming trees
    •    Animals
    •    Insect bites or stings

Symptoms

Allergy symptoms may include:
 

    •    Difficulty breathing
    •    Difficulty swallowing
    •    Congestion
    •    Runny nose
    •    Coughing
    •    Watery eyes or excessive tearing
    •    Rapid heart beat
    •    Nausea
    •    Vomiting
    •    Swelling
    •    Dizziness

Allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe. Anaphylactic shock is the most severe form of allergic reaction. It can be fatal if not treated.

Natural Healing Solutions

The best thing you can do to heal from your so-called allergies is to take two steps:
  

   •    (1) Discover the very thing responsible for your allergies and
   •    (2) Detoxify your body.

Fasting is great but its effect won’t or can’t compare to the effects of detoxing with Nature’s herbs. It is ideal to detox every seasonal change meaning its best to detox every 3 months (unless you’re pretty health conscious and eat salubriously consistently).

Drink a lot of good water to help flush the tissues of poisons and toxins. Most Americans are outright dehydrated because they don’t drink adequate amounts of water, good water such as alkaline/microclustered/structured water.

Dietary Intervention

Modify your diet! Eat as healthy as possible.

Eat plenty of live, organic, raw food. Living food is enzymatic! This means the food contains enzymes, the essence of life of a plant. Enzymes help to put life into your body and to stimulate peristalsis, which keeps the bowels regular and thus the colon healthy.
