Allergy Overload

Issue: 18 - 11 Mar 2008
 

WHAT ARE ALLERGIES?

In general terms, an allergy is a disorder which is brought about when the body adversely reacts to substances normally considered harmless. A true allergy evokes certain medically recognizable responses in the body’s immune system.

 

Whereas non-harmful substances are metabolized effectively and broken down into essential nutrients, allergenic substances are not; they then clog the bloodstream and lymph system and are absorbed by the tissues.

 

In recent years, it has become evident that there are other types of sensitivities particularly relating to food and chemicals, which whilst not allergies in the true medical sense, are just as devastating in their effect on the body and the life of the sufferer.
 
For our purpose the term allergy will be used in the broadest sense, to cover all types of adverse reactions by the body, to various substances, known as allergens.
 
 

CAUSES

  • Firstly, there is the specific allergy, caused by a partially digested food substance entering the bloodstream through the intestine and causing a toxic, chemical reaction. Normally, when a food substance enters the bloodstream, enzymes and white cells in the blood, complete the digestive process. However, in an allergic person the immune system does not respond normally. It is now known that damage to the intestine as an infant, is one major cause of this. Metabolic and digestive disturbances, resulting from severe illness and genetic defects are others.
  • Secondly, it has become increasingly evident that in recent years, people are developing a wide range of multiple sensitivities which appear to be caused by the accumulated toxic overload of modern living. Over the past 30 years the human body has been subjected to processed foods, together with their chemical additives, in ever increasing quantities. Combine this with chemicals from other sources, which are polluting both atmosphere and soil, and we have an increasing toxic situation in the body which is making a lot of people sick.

WHY NOT TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BODY?

Now is a good time to make those changes to your body and start to bring it back into balance again.
 
Below is a list of areas that can turn your life around and have you feeling healthier and looking fantastic.
  • Diet – Avoid processed foods; try to eat as clean as possible making sure you are getting your 5 serves of vegetable and salad, 2 to3 pieces of fruit, lean protein and wholegrain cereals daily. Organic, the more foods that you eat that are organic the better your body will respond, not only by getting rid of stored toxins, but also taking the pressure off the body, in so far as less chemicals that your poor body has to deal with.
  • Water – We all need to drink 2.5 to 3 litres of filtered water daily, which will help get rid of the toxins and overload of chemicals that is stored in your body.
  • Immune System – Boosting your immune system is a priority in the defence against allergies. Some of the best supplements are as follows: Olive leaf extract, Super Greens, Super Reds, Natural HGH Complex, Grapeseed, Pine Bark and Green Tea
  • Digestive System – A major priority is to improve and repair the digestive system to get it functioning at 100%. Some of the supplements are as follows: Probiotics, Vegetable Enzymes, Super Greens, Aloe Vera juice, ginger, Chlorella and papaya.
  • Stress – Is one of the quickest ways to suppress the immune system thereby increasing the allergy response.

SUMMARY

At the end of the day it is all about been conscious of every thing that goes into your mouth whether it is food, water or prescription drugs, also don’t forget skin care products, make-up, hair dye, soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent etc.
 
It looks like a tall order but consider this, a lot of allergies start when we are children and build momentum as we age, so therefore we have our work cut out for us. My advice is to take it a step at a time; the more you replace the products that you normally use with organic and chemical free the more you will restore the health of your body. Any change is a step in the right direction towards improving your quality of life.
 
As the old saying goes “If you keep going down the same road, you end up in the same place”.
