The definition of an allergy is a damaging immune response by the body to a substance, especially pollen, fur, a particular food, or dust, to which it has become hypersensitive. Allergic reactions can be from touch, ingestion or airborne. The key is that it is an over reactive response to an individual that is sensitive to that “allergic” substance.
Because of this over reactivity the scientific community as discovered an over production of histamine in many allergic responses, or an inflammatory reaction of some sort. The main treatment of the medical community is to prescribe an Antihistamine or steroids.
Forget the harmful effects these medicines may have on a human being, but the main fact is they do not cure the issue. Cure or eradicate the illness is the most important objective for the physician and the patient. Why are you settling for a treatment that is never going to cure the allergies you suffer with?
When people hear the word cure they automatically become suspicious. “Allergies can’t be cured”. You would be right if you continue the treatment of Antihistamines and steroidal treatments. This blog is being written in the spring time, many people have seasonal allergies (like hay fever). Seasonal allergies come back year after year. If taking a Kenalag shot year after year is ok, and you feel there are no downsides to it, this information is not for you. If you are sick and tired of dealing with the allergies, realize that ongoing steroidal treatment is harmful you are absolutely in the right place.

First and most important is that for the first time in your life (for most of you) this will be an experience where the whole person is looked at not just a piece of you.
The first step is to take a case history. This can take up to 90 mins but usually done in 45-60 mins. It is an easy process if you pay attention to your symptoms. When I ask what I may help you with, the symptom that is most distressing at the present moment should be explained. I have seasonal allergies. Itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing. These symptoms are common to most hay fever type symptoms. Now we have to understand how these symptoms relate to you specifically. This is done by answering questions like what seems to make it better or worse. For instance I sneeze when I am in a hot room. My eyes itch and cause tears which seem to irritate my eyes and turn the lids red. I need to wash my eyes to help the itch. As you can see this process is individualizing your particular complaint.
Next we go to other symptoms or what is called concomitant symptoms. A symptom happening at the same time which seems to have nothing to do with the presenting complaint. For instance you have heartburn frequently, better with hot drinks. You may even have an emotional component such as irritability or sadness that is part of the disease state. This process goes on till all the important symptoms are covered and a thorough understanding of the disease state is clearly understood. As you can see you are more than just the allergy symptoms. All the symptoms of the body is part of the disease, and this is what needs to be treated and this will lead to a permanent cure of the whole disease state.
Stop managing your problems it is time to get well permanently. The benefits is eradicating illness, happier life, and more energy this is what cure is about.
