What is an Allergy?
The fact is that an allergy is when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. It could be something you eat, inhale into your lungs, inject into your body or touch. This reaction could cause coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, a runny nose and a scratchy throat. In severe cases, it can cause rashes, hives, low blood pressure, breathing trouble, asthma attacks and even death.
You can manage allergies with prevention and treatment but, there is no cure for allergies. More Americans than ever say they manage allergies. It is among the country’s most common, but overlooked, diseases.
Allergic symptoms in children
A symptom is a major clue that something is wrong with your child. Rather than covering up the problem using a drug, it is important to recognize that allergy symptoms are a warning that something in their diet or environment is causing them a problem.
Usually the offending agent is food. This problem is greatly reduced in children who are breast-fed, although allergies still exist in some cases. In these cases it is usually the mother’s diet which needs to be cleaned up. The 2 biggest culprits are dairy and gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt).
Both allergies and asthma can cause respiratory symptoms, such as coughing and airway congestion. However, there are also symptoms unique to each disease. Allergies may cause:
- watery and itchy eyes
- runny nose
- scratchy throat
- rashes and hives
Usually removing these foods from the child’s diet, and making sure the child is given enough omega-3 fats will eliminate the vast majority of allergies. Other supplements have also been well documented to reduce allergies in infants. Siaga is safe for people of all ages. It is best absorbed if held in the mouth for several minutes, but can be mixed with food or other liquids. Another classic here would be a good probiotic in addition to Immunize.
ShopFreeMart Immunize is safe for babies, which not only helps to heal weaknesses in the intestinal wall, but also strengthens the immune system, which can also help to relieve many allergies.
Regular use of Hydration Water, Siaga and ShopFreeMart Immunize may help reduce symptoms associated with asthma and allergies.
4 Allergy Home Remedies
- Flaxseed oil One home remedy states that flax seed oil on cottage cheese cures allergies and when combined with borage is even better.
- Borage seed oil contains a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is known to have anti-inflammatory effects. Be aware however that most cottage cheese is mostly Plaster of Paris. Use only Certified Organic cottage cheese.
- Apple Cider Vinegar is not the best taste but it is known too help and is one of the basic things that you may have in your home.
- Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy vitamin. We experience allergic symptoms when an allergen-antibody complex causes mast cells to release histamine and other allergy mediating chemicals. Vitamin C helps to stabilize mast cells so they are less likely to release these substances.
If people with food allergies avoid harmful substances and address the factors at the root of their allergy problems, such as nutrition, digestion, intestinal health, Liver Cleansing and Colon Cleansing, their allergies can be overcome. It may take time, but good health is possible.
