What Are Allergies?
Allergies are due to hypersensitivity of the immune system. This means your immune system gets put on overdrive, causing damaging responses that can affect your whole body. Some of the most common triggers of allergies are pollen found outdoors, pet hair, dust inside, or particular foods.
When your body comes in contact with an allergen like pollen, your body releases a chemical called histamine, which works by helping to counteract the allergen.
Why do some people get allergies and others don’t?
Often times, when people struggle with allergies, it’s because their gut is damaged. In fact, the gut impacts pretty much your overall health! So, if you are struggling with poor gut health, other issues will manifest like skin issues, hormone imbalances and ALLERGIES!
The first thing I investigate when with my clients who have allergies is their gut health. I also use other testing to see if here could be:
Mycotoxins in the Home
Dysbiosis in the Gut
Food and Environmental Allergies
If I see or suspect an issue, specific protocols can be created to fix your gut, your diet, and your environment, and as a result, reduce your allergies.
These may include a combination of the following. But remember, each treatment protocol is different for everyone!
Follow the 5R protocol
Avoid certain foods for 3-6 months
Prioritize diet, stress management, and lifestyle behaviors
Receive personalized supplementation
