Allergies & Hayfever

Allergies, including hayfever, have been increasing year on year, affecting more and more people.  There are many natural tools for managing allergies, avoiding side effects of steroids or other pharmaceutical treatments.

The prevalence of allergic diseases has been growing rapidly in industrial countries during recent decades.

It is said that growing up with less exposure to microbes can weaken the immune sytsem. Children certainly don’t play outdoors as much anymore and soil contains many microbes. Early exposure to environmentally challenging agents reduces the risk of allergies.  Research shows that children born by C section will have a higher allergenic risk.  And babes that have not been breast-fed may also be at higher risk. The risk of a dog allergy can be reduced by getting a dog within the first year of the child’s life. Early life exposure to antibiotics can also increase the risk of allergies. 

Removing certain foods from the diet can greatly improve allergic symptoms.  Supplements can also really help. I usually find that clients with allergic symptoms do well with supporting gut healing and helping to breakdown foods. S Boulardii can provide gut healing as well as Vitamin D3 Complete (which contains Vitamin A, crucial for gut healing). AllerAid L92 is a new probiotic specifically formulated for allergies.  I have found this very effective with clients along with Oralmat drops. It can also work as an natural anti-histamine as does Quercetin. Specific digestive enzymes can also help reduce symptoms.  I usually recommend one of two digestive enzyme supplements for my clients. 

These supplements all have scientific research behind them and are of a therapeutic grade.  They are supplied by NutriLink tel 0845 076 0402‬.
