Allergies are an inflammatory response to a specific allergen or substance that provokes inflammation. Inflammatory symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, watering eyes and can even become as severe as anaphylactic shock. Allergy tendencies are hereditary and may come from a depleted immune system and diet rich in high allergy foods such as dairy, grains, pollution, and animal dander.
Modern medicine treats allergy symptoms with decongestants and antihistamines for systematic relief and their side effects. Use Homeopathic Combinations for specific allergies below. If you have a poor diet the symptoms may never go away.
From a natural perspective, allergies may be managed by eliminating allergens of foods, chemicals, pollutants, dust and animals until some of the following natural therapies can help your body get the allergies under control and remove the underlying problems. What you can improve your diet and eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black teas, sodas and dairy products.
Enzymes taken on an empty stomach act as an anti-inflammatory.
Vitamin C stabilizes mast cells, which when irritated release histamines.
B Vitamins support the adrenal glands to reduce inflammation.
Quercetin on an empty stomach, stabilizes mast cells to reduce the histamine response. Use for 2 – 3 weeks before the allergy season starts.
