Allergies occur when our immune system is confused and attacks non-harmful substances which can manifest as:
- Seasonal pollen allergies
- Dust mite allergies
- Animal dander allergies
- Food sensitivities
- Chemical sensitivities
Allergies can sometimes be a stepping stone to autoimmune conditions as well as increased susceptibility to infections (seen as more frequent colds, flus, yeast infections, skin infections, etc).
It’s important to rebalance your immune function not only to eliminate allergy, but to be sure you’re fighting what needs to be properly fought off.
The Lewis Family NDs do a great job of outlining the mechanism of allergy and how to treat it.
Allergy testing can help us pinpoint where our immune system has gone astray, and we use diet, herbs and supplements to sort it out!
