Physical discomfort, irritation or reaction to specific substances which normally would not cause hypersensitivity in the body.
The person may sneeze and cough, suffer from a runny nose and excess mucus, and have swollen or irritated eyes. The skin may erupt in rashes, and there may be a headache or very sore throat, as in a common cold. In extreme circumstance the sufferer may go into anaphylactic shock which can be life threatening.
The immune system is exposed to foreign protein either through blood exchange in the digestive tract, vaccination etc. The immune system develops sensitivity to this protein and of course reacts as though it was being invaded. The reaction is called an allergy. When certain foods are eaten, toxins are stirred up in the body which as an excessive retention of waste matter.
My own humble understanding of the problem is that the state of allergy is described best as “a perversion or perversions of the mechanisms of host-defence”. The cause can be pollen, plants, micro-organisms and their products, animal tissues, digestants, cosmetics, serums, drugs, articles of clothing, dyes, industrial products, physical modalities / heat, cold, solar energy etc.
The first step in cleaning up the cause of allergies is to work on rebuilding the bowel area to a healthy cleansing action. Here the mucusless diet should be employed.
The best thing to do is to clean the blood stream. A very fine herbal complex remedy is Regalen for allergies, hay fever and sinus conditions. I have a lot of success using Regalen for all types of allergies including auto immune disorders (when the immune system is attacking the body itself) including arthritis, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetics etc. For example for hay fever or stopped-up head and nose, use 7 drops of Regalen 3 times daily.
This natural herbal formula is designed to calm, yet strengthen the body’s immune response. Signs of an over active immune system includes: allergic reactions to certain foods, plants, animals or auto-immune diseases.
I finish by saying with great confidence that this excellent formula has made life easier for those who suffer from allergies, hay fever, and asthma, multiple sclerosis, juvenile onset diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or other hyperactive immune response. It also helps the body fight infection.
