An Allergy is a hypersensitivity to a foreign substance which is usually harmless but which produce a reaction in the allergy
sufferer. Allergies reflect an imbalance of the immune system, sometimes called "dysregulation" in which the immune system
over-reacts to an external substance which poses no threat as if it were dangerous. The methods of reaction of the immune
system is the overproduction of histamine and/or the inappropriate production of antibodies. Common immune
system dysregulation disorders are hay fever, migraine, asthma, allergic rhinitis, digestive disturbances, hyperactivity in children, conjunctivitis, coeliac disease,
drowsiness, eczema, chronic fatigue, tinnitus, recurrent sinus and ear infections, and occasionally anaphylaxis with
disorientation, muscle cramps, unconsciousness and death.
Any food or airborne substance can be an allergen. The most common examples are milk, wheat, eggs, pollens, house dust,
molds, and food additives. Also, drug allergies are common.
Allergies should be distinguished from "sensitivities." Allergies always involve a reaction of the immune system, whereas an
intolerance or sensitivity can be caused by an unprepared condition in the body. For example some people are intolerant of milk products
because they do not make the enzyme (lactase) to digest milk sugar (lactose).
The conventional approach to allergies is to identify allergens using skin tests and then give desensitization shots. This
type of treatment works best for airborne allergens, but have little effect
on food sensitivities.
The most serious dysregulations of the immune system involve the autoimmune
disorders and also chronic fatigue associated with digestive disturbance and
brain fog. These disorders clear up best with detoxification and treatment with
the SanPharma Protocol.
