The word “allergy” comes from the Greek “allos”, meaning “another of the same kind.” The body has a damaging immune over-reaction to what is otherwise a harmless substance: foods, environmental, or stimulus. Ultimately, your IMMUNE SYSTEM is working TOO WELL!
Most conventional treatments manage allergy symptoms by bringing the immune system into submission. (Anti-histamines, steroids, allergy shots, and oral immunotherapy). These either put a bandaid on symptoms or take a long time to become effective (if symptoms ever regress), and don’t effectively deal with the symptoms of food allergy/sensitivity.
Allergies and sensitivities can lead to an enormous amount of chronic inflammation- inflammation being the major culprit of pretty much every major disease you can think of: from osteoarthritis to cardiovascular disease.
