Allergies Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy 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.
