Allergies - Conditions & Cures
An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system misinterprets a normally
nontoxic substance, such as grass, pollen, a detergent, or a certain food,
as a harmful invader. The immune system then responds to this perceived
threat, called an allergen, by releasing substances called histamines.
Histamines produce a wide range of bodily reactions, including respiratory
and nasal congestion, increased mucus production, skin rashes and welts,
and headache. In the case of an actual threat to the body, in the form of,
say, a flu virus, these reactions would form an important line of defense
against the invader, helping to trap it and expel it, and encouraging you
to rest and recover. But during the false alarm of an allergic response,
the body overreacts to a harmless agent.
Most allergens are found either in the environment or in food.
Environmental allergens include pollen (reactions to pollen are often
called hay fever), mold, animal dander, dust, feathers, insect venom,
certain cosmetics, and household products, and metals. When the
environmental allergens are removed or make their seasonal disappearance,
the body returns to normal. If the allergens are not removed, the immune
system will continue its artificially high state of alert. In these cases,
the allergic response can develop into chronic allergic rhinitis, in which
the nasal passages remain persistently inflamed.
Why some people develop allergies to certain substances and others does not
remain unclear. It does seem that certain allergic responses, such as hay
fever, have a genetic basis. Excess accumulation of mucus in the body,
which attracts and stores the irritant, also contributes to or causes
allergic responses. In addition, stress and a generally depressed immune
system may contribute to the severity of the allergies.

If you experience difficulty breathing or develop hives that spread
rapidly, get emergency help at once. Allergic reactions like these can
quickly be fatal. If you know you have severe reactions to certain
substances, talk to your doctor about emergency adrenaline kits you can
keep on hand.

If you have allergies, dietary therapy should include strategies for mucus
reduction, elimination of allergenic pathogens, and general immune support.
Base your diet on non-mucus-forming foods: whole grains (although gluten
sensitivity is common), fresh vegetables and fruits, cold-pressed oils, and
raw seeds and nuts. (Many people with environmental allergies also have
reactions to nuts, so monitor your reactions carefully.)
To keep your immune system healthy, make sure to get enough lean protein.
Seafood and tofu are good sources that don't encourage mucus production.
Drink six to eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day to thin mucus secretions.
Flaxseeds and flaxseed oil can reduce inflammation. Take 2 tablespoons
Foods to Avoid
Eliminating foods that cause mucus should be a priority for any allergy
sufferer. Mucus-forming foods include all dairy products, fried and
processed foods, refined flours, chocolate, and eggs.
The immune response stresses your digestive system, so place as few
additional burdens on it as possible. Cut down on bad fats and oils
(saturated, hydrogenated, or those containing trans-fatty acids)-as well as
the refined flour and the processed foods mentioned earlier-and increase
your intake of fiber, especially from raw vegetables.
Many people with environmental allergies also suffer from food allergies.
Follow an elimination diet to ensure that certain foods aren't making your
environmental allergies worse.
Wheat is the unsuspected culprit behind many allergies, including those
that seem to be triggered by environmental allergens. Try eliminating wheat
during the seasons that usually coincide with your allergic responses.
A three-day juice fast to expel mucus is strongly encouraged. During and
after the fast, you will feel your congestion begin to clear.
Green drinks are good for flushing out mucus and toxins. Drink one daily,
whether you're fasting or not.
Exercise to expel toxins, support the immune system, and reduce stress.
Don't smoke or expose yourself to secondhand smoke.
Avoid or reduce exposure to allergy triggers. If you have mold or dust
allergies, keep your house extremely clean and dry. A dehumidifier in
the basement is a good idea, as are air filters and feather-free pillow
and comforters. If you have a wood- or coal-burning fireplace or stove,
you may need to find an alternate source of heat. In extreme cases, you
may have to rid your home of any item that's likely to collect dust,
including upholstered furniture, rugs, and curtains. A HEPA
(high-energy particulate air) filter is highly recommended, especially
in the bedroom at night.
Xylitol nasal spray reduces allergy symptoms. Follow directions on the
