Do you suffer from allergies? Do you know someone who does? If you do or you know someone who does then you can understand the pain. The stuffiness, the sneezing, the itching, and even more! Sometimes traditional treatments don’t actually address the root cause of the problem, so what would?

To understand treatment options for allergies, it’s important to understand what allergies are.

What Are Allergies?

The reaction to an allergen is the immune system’s reaction to foreign substances that are normally harmless to most people. This reaction is usually immediate and it’s an over-activation of white blood cells that are triggered by antibodies. The immune system sees the allergen as harmful, even if it isn’t, and creates antibodies to fight it off. The reactions vary between people from minor to anaphylaxis (life-threatening). Usually they’re categorized as respiratory or systemic (where multiple systems are involved).

Common Allergens:

  • Airborne particles (animal hair, car exhaust, cigarette smoke, dust, dust mites, fragrances, fungi, herbicides, mold, paint fumes, pesticides, pollens, weeds)
  • Chemicals
  • Latex
  • Petroleum and gas products
  • Foods (peanuts, GMO, soy products, etc.)
  • Insect stings, bites, and venom
  • Medications (aspirin, antibiotics like penicillin or sulfa, etc.)

What Are The Traditional Treatments?

  • Avoid known allergens
  • Steroids to modify the immune system
  • Medications (antihistamines and decongestants) to reduce or cover up symptoms

You Have Natural Options

Natural healthcare options are geared at addressing the root cause, not just chasing after covering up new symptoms. Natural options, when chosen with care, eliminate chemicals which are associated with increasing the histamine reaction in the body. These natural options have the ability to chemically support the body in its capacity to reduce and overcome acute or chonic hypersensitivity.
