Adult Onset Allergies. There has been a steep rise in cases of asthma and allergies in the U.S. over the past few decades. Why? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in 12 people in the U.S. have allergies, or about 25 million people. And the rate appears to be on the rise. From 2001 to 2011, the CDC says the number of Americans with allergies grew by 28 percent. (HealthLine Web Site). Unfortunately many health care professionals look to suppress your immune system to treat your allergy symptoms. In this article, I’ll go into why this treatment only targets the symptoms, rather than the cause of the problem.
While your allergies are the result of an overactive immune system, often times the cause lies much further “upstream”. Also, it’s important to point out that if you were born with certain allergies, that’s a completely different story. This article deals with allergies acquired later in life; i.e. adult onset allergies (or adolescent).
How it Starts
So where does it all start? Often times, it all starts in the liver. In fact, your liver acts like a filter straining out toxins from the blood. This of course keeps your blood clean and healthy. But what happens if the liver gets overloaded and can’t keep up with demand? Sadly, due to the Standard American Diet, that’s too true way too often. Now these harmful toxins back up into the blood stream. Unfortunately your body knows they’re not supposed to be there. So what does it do? It uses the immune system to attack them. And this is what causes your allergy symptoms. The common medical approach is to block the immune system cells responsible for that attack. Can you see why this only patches the symptoms?
Our Approach to Healthy Liver and Immune support
Fortunately, there is a solution to helping both your liver and immune system work properly. In fact that’s exactly what enzyme nutrition does. Through scientific testing based on sound medical principles, our testing will identify the source of stress in the body. Then with a precise combination of gradual dietary changes and enzyme supplements we can support the healthy function of that organ. In this case that may end up being the liver, and/or the immune system.
Are you concerned about your liver or immune health? Does your condition affect your work, play or family? Would you like a more active lifestyle? Or perhaps you’re worried about a loved one. Give us a call and set up a consultation. Let us help your body work properly by finding and addressing the source of stress. In fact, we will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering. We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care.
