Few of us are born with allergies. Most allergies are developed as a result of a weakened immune system. While we may not have allergies at birth, we certainly inherit the tendency to develop them from our parents. Many allergic children have allergic parents. Allergies are created because the body becomes overloaded with stress. Stress in the form of chemically toxicity, due to the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the chemicals we are exposed to. Allergies are nothing more than an over-reaction of the immune system. When we get exposed to a food, chemical, pollen or any substance, if our immune system is overtaxed and weakened, the immune system may identify the substance as a threat. Once labeled as threat (or allergen), the body remembers and when exposed to the allergen again, the immune system runs this faulty allergy-over-reaction program and produces all of the symptoms. If the body is able to create a faulty response to a normal substance it makes sense that the body can re-create that abnormal response. Many people who have suffered from allergies “out-grow” them. This is because their body changes as they mature or their immune system gets healthier and reprograms itself. Our treatments simply help the body change this faulty programming much quicker.
