Natural Home Remedies for Allergies

Food allergies, nasal allergies and skin allergies may all have a common point of origin. Though these three types of allergies may manifest differently from one another, on the inside, the primary reaction is essentially the same. An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system reacts to a seemingly harmless substance. The immune system is highly intelligent and typically only attacks dangerous intruders such as bacteria and viruses. So why does the immune system attack a harmless substance such as peanuts, strawberries, or wheat? These are common foods that nurture our bodies. Why are we allergic to these foods? Are we allergic to food? Or are we allergic to what’s been done to it?

What are we  allergic to really?

We know weed killer shouldn’t be ingested. We know it doesn’t belong on our food and if it did get on our food, there would be a 99% chance it would poison us and make us sick. Well that’s exactly what is happening. Peanuts, for example, are one of the most heavily pesticide contaminated foods we eat. According to farmers, this one crop is sprayed every 8-10 days during the growing cycle. For reference, peanuts have a growing cycle of 4-5 months.

Additionally, peanuts grow in the ground and have a soft, absorbent shell which is an ideal environment for fungus to thrive. The fungus that commonly develops in peanuts produces a cancer-causing toxin known as “aflatoxin”. This creates the need for more chemicals to kill the cancer-causing fungus. The USDA Pesticide Data Program found 8 pesticides in peanut butter alone. If all of these pesticides are in the peanut butter, do you think your body is reacting to the peanuts or to the chemicals? And if these chemicals are making it into the peanut butter, what else might they be in?

Allergies are on the rise

A recent CDC survey reveals a 50% increase in the number of children with food allergies. Children with food allergies have an increased risk of asthma and other allergies, compared to children without food allergies. Chemicals in foods often create a ripple effect. First you become allergic to the peanut butter, then to wheat, one of the most commonly genetically engineered crops, then perhaps soy, also in the top 5 crops that are genetically engineered; and the list goes on.

Are we unknowingly eating pesticides & carcinogens?

What do these foods all have in common? They are heavily doused in chemicals AND are genetically engineered. If this is the kind of food you are consuming on a regular basis, think about how that’s affecting your digestive system that has to break all these foods down to be absorbed by blood cells. Piperonyl butoxide, or (PBO), is a commonly used synergist in pesticide formulas. What this means is, PBO is added to other pesticide products to enhance the toxicity of the active ingredients. According to the USDA Pesticide Data Program, PBO was found in peanut butter 26.9% of the time. PBO negatively impacts liver function, nervous system function, and is considered a possible carcinogen according to the National Pesticide Information Center.

Taking into consideration how easily chemicals are making their way into food and how easy it is to consume them, let’s look at the other side of impact. Many chemicals in food are known to harm the liver and the nervous system, among other systems. A liver that is damaged can not properly filter blood. This means the chemicals are passing into the bloodstream and being carried around to other parts of the body. Since these chemicals have no nutritional benefit all they really do is damage healthy cells and can even cause cancer. Now we have a buildup of toxins from chemicals in our food, plus a build up of toxins from refined sugars, refined carbs, processed dairy, alcohol, and genetically modified foods, to name a few. Add to this formula, common irritants such as pollen, dander and dust, and what do you get? You get a system so saturated with toxins that the slightest irritant such as dust creates a sneezing, coughing, wheezing fit. Typically, this is the moment most people reach for a benadryl, adding more chemicals to the already saturated body.

How to naturally eliminate allergies

While this is not the case 100% of the time, there is a strong correlation between allergies and a toxic body. Nasal allergies, food allergies, and skin allergies are essentially caused by the same thing- a toxic body. How can you eliminate allergies? Eliminate all chemical-laden, refined, and GMO foods. Then, cleansing the colon using the basic cleanse, is the best way to start. The basic cleanse will help clear out the colon from excess fecal matter, bacteria, parasites, and other intestinal toxins. The basic cleanse also contains powerful cleansing ingredients such as chlorophyll that cleanses the body at a cellular level. Chlorophyll also oxygenates cells which helps damaged cells regenerate. Nutritional support, and cleansing agents for every system of the body are also part of the basic cleanse.

Once the basic cleanse has been completed, it’s time to introduce foods rich in friendly bacteria such as Greek yogurt, kefir, tempeh, sauerkraut, kim chi, and miso. Fresh fruits are also important because they contain lots of enzymes and antioxidants. Enzymes help break food down for better absorption and antioxidants help eliminate toxins and fight free radicals, which damage cells.

Nasal Allergies Natural Remedy

For individuals with nasal allergies, cleansing with a focus on the respiratory tract is encouraged. Products such as HistaBlockSinus SupportLung Support, and Bee Pollen can be used to help cleanse the respiratory tract and sinuses. These products can also help strengthen the respiratory tract, making it easier to fight allergens without any of the negative side affects of pharmaceuticals.

Skin Allergies Natural Remedy

For individuals with skin allergies, cleansing with a focus on the skin and circulatory system is encouraged. Powerful antioxidants such as Noni have shown great results when used on mild to acute skin rashes. Noni has also proved beneficial when used internally as well as topically in people with skin allergies, eczema, psoriasis and other skin deficiencies. Blood stimulatorSkin DetoxBlack Walnut, and Uña De Gato are great products that can help eliminate skin allergies.

Food Allergies Natural Remedy

Taking the basic cleanse for a minimum of three months would be best for optimal results, especially when trying to eliminate food allergies. Individuals with food allergies should cleanse with a focus on the digestive and intestinal system. After three months of the basic cleanse, restore the intestinal flora with products such as Probiotic Eleven and Bifidophilus Flora Force. Replenish intestinal villi that help with enzyme secretion and nutrient absorption by using Small Intestine Detox or Intestinal Soothe and Build.

For optimal results

For all cases of allergies, cleansing for a minimum of 3 months is always recommended. Click here to learn more about the basic cleanse and why cleansing is essential for optimal health.
