What is Allergy?
Allergy is considered one of the fastest growing chronic diseases in Australia. More than 20% of population in industrialised countries suffer from food intolerance or food allergy.
Allergic symptoms include:
- Allergic rhinitis
- Hay Fever
- Digestive disorders
Why allergic symptoms occur?
People with allergy have an inappropriate immune system response to what should be a harmless substance in the environment. This could be pollen, food items, natural or synthetic chemicals or other products. Allergy and reactivity symptom severity varies from person to person. It can range from anaphylaxis to headaches.
In allergic conditions such as hay fever and eczema, the immune system becomes overactive and leading to excessive immune activity. Standard treatments such as antihistamines may provide symptomatic relief. However, they don’t treat underlying immune imbalance.
What is the key to treat underlying issues of allergic symptoms?
Reducing inflammation, restoring balance to the immune system and supporting long term immune health are vital for managing symptoms of allergy and reactivity.
Naturopath Mika recommend selected herbs and nutrients, a tailored diet and life style recommendations that will help reduce your degree of reactivity, support gut health and improve your immune tolerance. This approach will help you gain control of your allergy and reactivity symptoms.
