Naturopathic Allergy Treatment
Millions of people suffer from allergies on a daily basis in the United States. They are annoying, frustrating and can really affect the quality of your life if they are severe enough.
Allergies happen when your immune system reacts to a foreign material. The immune system is a very powerful natural tool that helps your body prevent infections and diseases. Antibodies, which are produced by the immune system, protect against foreign substances that make you sick. In some cases, such as when you have allergies, your immune system will create antibodies that react to a foreign allergen even though it may not actually be harmful to you.
When your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, it can cause a host of problems. Many people with mild allergies report experiencing symptoms such as congestion, itchy nose, swollen eyes, chest tightness, and itchy, irritated skin. Some food and insect sting allergies can prompt a much more severe allergic reaction, which is called anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a very serious medical situation, and can be fatal. Anaphylaxis can cause lightheadedness, skin rashes, nausea and vomiting, and swelling airways that can restrict breathing.
