Allergies

Allergies are so bothersome and, in some cases, debilitating. They are a common occurrence in my office all year around. I see seasonal allergies and more often food allergies. Seasonal allergies present, seasonally and typically have the same symptoms and duration. Food allergies can be much more challenging to pinpoint and identify. Food allergies can occur immediately after eating a food (this is anaphylaxis which requires swift medical attention) or delayed hypersensitivity 

Asthma is a common condition that leads to breathing difficulty, coughing, and wheezing. It is caused by a combination of spasm of the small airways of the lung and inflammation, both of which impair the ability of the lungs to exchange air. The severity of asthma symptoms can range from mild wheezing to life-threatening breathing difficulties. It affects about 3% of the US population, with children under the age of 10 being most at risk.

 

The natural treatment of asthma focuses on several key principles: reducing allergic exposure, reducing the sensitivity of the airways of the lungs, balancing the allergic/inflammatory pathways in the body, and correcting nutrient imbalances.

 

 

How Does The Treatment Work?

 

The greatest benefit comes from a comprehensive treatment program that includes the use of appropriate herbs, nutrients, dietary modifications, and allergen elimination. Many people with mild to moderate asthma are able to reduce or even eliminate their need for prescription medications by following this approach. Asthma medications should not, however, be discontinued without first consulting a physician, as this can lead to a life-threatening emergency
