What Causes Allergies or an Allergic Reaction?
Allergic reactions occur when cells in the immune system interpret a substance as harmful, overact and release histamine. It is your immune system that gives you the symptoms, not the substance itself. Please read more here>>
This is an important consideration when it comes to how to help allergies, as it reveals the positive intention of your body to try and clear the substance it has misinterpreted as a dangerous threat.
Once we realize that the allergic reaction comes from within, not from something external to us, it gives us the opportunity to address this and change from within, this is where the following tips can help you.
The National Health Service advises that “in many cases, the most effective way of managing an allergy is to avoid the allergen that causes the reaction whenever possible.” However, this isn’t always possible especially consider the amount of allergens which are airborne, as well as in foods, personal care products, pets, and other environmental toxicants.
