Allergies: what doctors don't tell you and you should know

We are conditioned by thousands of advertisements a day to equate diseases with their symptoms. Headache, back pain, bronchitis, eczema, arthritis, allergies, ringing in the ears, asthma, high blood pressure, over and over again - these are usually not diseases themselves, but signs of the disease. The illusion is that temporarily, by covering up the signs, we have cured the disease.

What are allergies?

Your friend sees your bloodshot eyes, hears your congested voice, and accepts the explanation "it's my allergy," as if the symptoms he or she sees are the same illness. This play on words is not accidental. We are conditioned by thousands of advertisements a day to equate diseases with their symptoms. Headache, back pain, bronchitis, eczema, arthritis, ringing in the ears, asthma, high blood pressure, over and over again - these are usually not diseases themselves, but signs of the disease. The illusion is that temporarily, by covering up the signs, we have cured the disease. The illusion is that by naming the signs, the disease has been identified.

Nothing could be further from the truth

You have a headache. Solution, scheduled every five minutes on television: Tylenol, Advil, whatever, it's going to do what? That's right: eliminate pain. But wait - pain wasn't the cause of the problem. The headache had a reason, it was a sign of something else. Neck spasm, poisoning, emotional stress, sinus allergies, trauma, misaligned posture, medications, chemical sensitivity, overwork, dehydration, hunger - pain can come from many sources. The pill doesn't solve anything, it doesn't cure anything. As soon as it's spent, guess what? True - the pain returns. So what are we taught to do? More pills.

The same goes for allergies. Allergies are not watery eyes and a stuffy nose. Allergies are reactions to irritating substances. Something strange is triggering the body's responses to cleanse itself. It's like walking behind a smoky bus when it starts. You breathe in the smoke and start coughing and feel like you're choking, your eyes filling with tears. That's an allergic response. Humans are allergic to bus emissions. Watery eyes to clean eyes. Coughing reflects the forcible expelling of toxic gases before they are inhaled. It happens in an instant.

Tolerance is an adaptation to Stress. When we get used to an irritant, the body eventually gives up trying to expel it.

Just like a bus mechanic. After a few weeks or months of breathing everyday fumes, the body doesn't work as hard. The sensitive mucous membranes of the mouth and nose harden a little, and the mechanic learns to "take it." He is becoming less sensitive to a poison-carbon monoxide. He doesn't mean that he won't kill you, but it just means that the body is getting used to that degree of being poisoned. The irritant is no longer eliciting as strong a response as the cleaning he used to do.

The same thing happens with someone who is learning to smoke cigarettes. She coughs and chokes at first, but soon gets a grip on it. The body's ability to get rid of toxins became weaker.

COLD MEDICINES

We have all heard of antihistamines. Pills and sprays that unclog stuffy noses. They work by blocking histamines. Histamines are produced by our white blood cells to activate protective mechanisms, such as stuffy nose, watery eyes, and shutting down digestion. Allergy medicine is usually an antihistamine, which strangely interferes with the body's normal attempts to protect itself. The mouth, nose and eyes - it is the first line of defense.

When antihistamines block these normal responses from happening, the irritant or allergen or antigen is allowed to enter more of the body than it would have ever gotten. This is a side effect of antihistamines. You can be grateful that you can breathe again. The problem wasn't the stuffy nose or watery eyes, the problem was the allergen: the irritant. Antihistamines do not address the underlying cause; they will only suspend the body's ability to respond with its normal compensatory mechanisms. Result: tolerance. Toxicity.

Isn't this obvious? Holistic doctors get tired of explaining this self-evident fact over and over a dozen times a day to their patients. It's like you're driving down the road and suddenly you hear a horrible noise coming from the engine. So you turn up the volume on the radio in order to cover up the noise. Pretty stupid, but that's precisely what we're doing with allergy medications.

HIDE THE SYMPTOMS

The focus of allergy treatment should be the elimination of the underlying stimuli of sinus obstruction and watery nose and eyes. First, identify the causative factor. Cat hair, dust, pollen, shellfish, wool, etc.? I don't believe it. Normal people can be around all of them and not react. Genetics? The usual excuse, when the "experts" run out of ideas. We have no idea, so let's chalk it up to the standard output - of all categories: genetics.

As long as we don't know, the best we can do is continue buying and selling antihistamines and their derivatives. As a $15 billion dollar a year industry, why would anyone want to question it? Doctors sell medicines, that's why we go to them. If you want health, well, that's a completely different topic.

There is another possibility here that thousands of people have discovered in recent years. A new paradigm must be considered to explain the constant success that detox patients are having in solving their chronic allergies. This construction can be called the reactivity threshold. It's really very simple.

THE THRESHOLD OF REACTIVITY

Have you ever been in a grocery store and noticed all these little ones running down the aisles yelling at mommy buy me this, mommy I want this, pointing at all those refined, fattening foods they've learned to need from watching ads on the grocery store? television? And then you see all those same items appear in the box?

Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and noticed those little paper cups full of Coca-Cola they give to babies?

American children are getting fatter, sicker, and dumber than ever before in our history. This is not simply a provocative statement, but it is easily documented in all relevant government and scientific statistics on allergy, obesity and neurodevelopment.

This is the key idea of ​​this chapter: refined processed foods cannot be digested. When a child is born, his tract and blood are clean and clear. As he begins to eat all this garbage that cannot be metabolized, residual sludge builds up in the digestive tract and blood. Let's call this toxic load buildup.

Okay, so let's say there is a threshold, a level of toxicity below which the child does not react to junk foods - no asthma, watery eyes, runny nose, skin rashes, etc., but over time the Toxic load builds up to the point that one day it crosses the line, exceeds the threshold, and now the child reacts - any type of allergic reaction can occur.

By that time the patient has developed such an accumulated toxic food load that has exceeded the body's ability to deal with it - to break it down and process it. We say that you have reached the threshold of reactivity - and that it is the end of childhood, in a health sense.

Result: asthma, allergies, skin conditions, cough, bronchitis, chronic fatigue, lack of development, etc. So what do most people do at that time? Take the child to the doctor and consult one of those 15-year-olds who was a resident that week, and who after a five-minute interview declares that the child has an "allergy" that is due to a genetic deficiency of Benadryl, or other medicines.

And in one fell swoop the patient is now classified as allergic and is put on a regiment of medications that will last for years. Not a word about the box of Corn Flakes and the 4 donuts or flour donuts the child has for breakfast or the 4 cokes he has at school during the day or the ice cream he needs for his midnight snack.

None of those are taken into the equation. No, this is all "genetics" according to doctors. "It's not your fault".

Do you know someone on allergy medication? Do you still have allergies? All invariably.
