Ready for Ragweed Allergy Season?
Tips to Help You Thrive . . . Not Just Survive!
It’s ragweed season, and for many people that means miserable symptoms such as sneezing, a runny or stuffy nose, trouble sleeping, asthma attacks, and itchy skin, eyes, nose, or throat.
Why Some People Get Allergies
Allergies result when a person has a hyperactive response of the immune system to certain normally harmless substances. These harmless substances are called “allergens” and can come from food, pollen, dust, chemicals and drugs, among other things. Symptoms can be immediate or delayed.
Traditional Therapies vs. Holistic
Traditional medicine’s aim of treatment is usually directed at blocking the immune response, or in more severe cases, at suppressing the entire immune system with steroids. While this may provide some relief of symptoms, it does not address the underlying cause of the problem. In turn, once the medication wears off it will produce a rebound effect – and you need more drugs! This is why most people get hooked on allergy drugs – they can’t stand the rebound phenomenon.
In contrast, the natural healer’s aim is to help restore the body’s natural balance in order to strengthen the body against these reactions. Rather than covering up the problem using a drug, it is important to recognize that allergy symptoms are a warning that something is wrong.
The Allergy-Wheat Connection
Here’s how wheat can cause allergies for your entire life. Wheat, grains, bread and alcohol turn into sugar in the gut, and your body must eliminate excessive amounts of sugar in the gut. So as you stuff yourself with processed foods, your body struggles to pull water together to neutralize, dilute and eliminate it. This chronic need for water results in chronic dehydration. One of the first things to suffer during dehydration is the mucus membranes (sinuses, etc.). Once dried out, they can no longer protect you from the ever-present yeasts, molds, bacteria, pollens, allergens, etc. The end result is a chronically stopped up nose, runny nose, postnasal drip and eventually allergies. Allergy medications only further dry up the system causing more dehydration. The real and only answer is to eliminate the need for the body to flush excess sugars. As soon as this need is no longer present, your body will have adequate fluids to replenish it’s mucus membranes which can now begin to function and allergies diminish and may even disappear!
