Allergies (Food/Environment)

We view allergies as a symptom not an illness.

Allergies are due to one or more of the following problems:

Adrenal gland weakness
Excess histamine intake
Deficient histamine elimination
Immune system dysfunction
Abnormal bacterial balance in the gastrointestinal tract (dysbiosis)
Our approach to the treatment of allergies consists of determining which ones of the problems listed above are present, and then eliminating them. We do food allergy tests using a blood sample.

We use natural products to renew the adrenals; we lower the histamine with diet and natural substances, and we de-sensitize with oral allergens, etc.

Allergic reactions, whether they are triggered by environment or food, are mediated by histamine. Antihistamine medicines block histamine temporarily but do not help getting rid of histamine, and may even increase it. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the amount of histamine in your body to get rid of allergies. Continue reading
