The word “allergy” comes from the Greek “allos”, meaning ‘another of the same kind’. Allergy symptoms occur when the body has an immune system over-reaction to what is otherwise a harmless substance: foods, environmental, or stimulus. Ultimately, your IMMUNE SYSTEM is working TOO WELL to protect you.
Most conventional and natural allergy therapies manage allergy symptoms by bringing the immune system into submission. (Anti-histamines, herbal anti-histamines, steroids, allergy shots, immunotherapy, etc). These either put a bandaid on symptoms or may 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.
