Allergy – the number one environmental illness
Allergies are more than just a runny nose. In environmental medicine practice, allergy is the first environment-friendly disease or disorder. Yet many people do not realize how many different problems can develop due to allergy.
The concept of allergy was first introduced by Dr. Von Pirquet in 1904 and defined it as "all changed reaction to one substance". This determination of allergy was generally accepted by 1967 when Dr. Ishizaka isolated the immunoglobulin E in the blood of a person and identified this protein as a specific marker to identify allergic reactions.
By identifying the only physiological device for allergy mediation, allergy was only applied to immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated reactions.
However, Ishizaka's new definition of allergy is reflected in the fact that most physicians can not recognize that people are able to respond to many things that are not IgE mediated. Classical allergies – allergic rhinitis, asthma and eczema – are the main causes of inhaling allergens such as pollen, dust, shapes and tides (typically mediated by IgE), and it is useful to reduce allergic load through avoidance or allergic extracts.
However, sensitivity to food and chemicals is often not mediated by IgE, and thus lacked a diagnosis. In our 29-year experience in the professional and environmental center of medicine, it has been found that chronic symptoms and illnesses are often caused by food and chemical allergens. Reactions to these materials may be mediated by immunoglobulin G (IgG) or other immunoglobulins or may occur as a reaction within the gastrointestinal tract.
Based on our experience in thousands of patients, Centrum uses the term "food and chemical sensitivity" as "food and chemical allergy", knowing that humans react when the mechanism is not mediated by IgE. We have found that common causes of headache often (but not always) are susceptible to sugar cane, corn, cola, chocolate and / or citrus, and common causes of arthritic pain include beef, pork, apple, soybeans, coffee and solanin-containing foods – tomatoes, potatoes, aubergines and peppers. The mechanism of these reactions is obviously not IgE mediation. To further complicate things, each person is unique and the trigger for these disorders and other pain syndromes is very unique.
Most doctors practicing Environmental Medicine are of the opinion that if you only have one chronic sign and symptom with only one activity, it would be an elimination diet that would be followed by a patient dilemma challenge testing. Most people are surprised to learn that problem foods are usually those that are often consumed or craved. Experiences with fragile asthmatics show that 50-60% better food mortality. This again emphasizes the important role of the intestinal interior as the body gator and the importance of good digestion.
Any organ or system of the body may be the target of a "allergic" or sensitizing reaction. This is how we often encounter patients with multiple systems. Identification of foods, chemicals, and inhalation agents helps to solve problems such as gastro-oesophageal reflux, chronic nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bedding, frequency and urgent urination, chronic persistent cough, asthma and chronic joint pain. However, the most important loan-changing organ system is the nervous system. Allergies or sensitivities affecting the nervous system may cause learning difficulties, psychosis and schizophrenia, depression, fatigue, fatigue, agoraphobia, panic attacks, sleep apnea, restless legs, and other neurological disorders as the target of the reaction. Why use lifelong medication when they often identify allergies or sensitivities that can eliminate or greatly reduce such problems?
People often notice that their medical problems are cyclical and occur in the given period. They do not recognize that the seasonality of the sunset is related to pollen – spring with trees, summer grass and weeds in the fall. Therefore, it is important not only to look for the patient's problem, but when to get the symptoms? It is equally important to understand that foods react crosswise to pollen. One of the most susceptible to certain foods is if there are simultaneous pollen in the air. In addition, women with cyclical signs and symptoms may be related to their menstrual cycle. This is called endocrine allergy, reactions are linked to hormone sensitivity. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a manifestation of hormonal susceptibility and responds quickly to an environmentally friendly approach.
One of the main causes of the disease is autoimmunity: the body attacks itself literally because it does not recognize itself on non-self. Such diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, multiple sclerosis and thyroiditis, are autoimmune diseases. It is often caused by microorganisms in the body that cross-react to certain body tissues. Cross-reaction of the organism Group A hemolytic streptococci in Group A is the cause of rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis in the heart and kidney tissues. Sensitivity to allergies or to normal microbial plants can cause autoimmune diseases in susceptible individuals. The use of hypo-sensitizing and neutralizing techniques may be advantageous to overcome the cross-activity of the various organisms and thus to treat autoimmune diseases. Hopefully, this article has proved that "allergy" is more than a dripping nose and this may have many causes for symptoms and symptoms.
