Allergies are now considered one of the fastest growing chronic disease that we are seeing in our modern environment. These can range from hay fever, digestive reactions, skin breakouts; to more serious life-threatening anaphylaxis.
Allergies generally are triggered by a complex cascade between an allergen; such as protein or an environmental toxin/chemical and the immune system resulting in an inflammatory response. These manifest in symptoms that impact on how we function in our daily lives.
A wholistic approach to long term treatment
A wholistic approach is to temporarily avoid whatever is triggering the allergy, aid in symptomatic relief, but work on long term solutions to correct underlying factors that perpetuate the process. Gut health is key to treatment as 70% of our immune system is in the gut and has a close connection between the gut wall and immune health. This process of supporting both the gastrointestinal and immune system is central to providing a more solid and long-term solution to allergic conditions.
