An allergen is any substance that evokes a hypersensitive response of the immune system. Often, allergens are seemingly harmless substances. Common allergens include food, pharmaceuticals, pollen, pet dander, mold, dust, and insect bites. Allergies can affect the skin, respiratory system, stomach, intestines, muscle strength and heart beat. Many common illnesses are allergic reactions, as in asthma, hay fever, and environmental illness (sensitivity to common substances and environmental factors, such as soap or sunlight). Most allergies are subtle enough that the symptoms go unnoticed. However, the body is dealing with the effects of unaddressed allergies at a cellular level, and there can be physical, mental and spiritual imbalance as a result. Allergies put stress on the body, and any form of stress brings imbalance.
Allergies to mold and fungus are common and signify an improper blood sugar balance, as mold and fungus feed on sugar. Balancing blood sugar can alleviate this type of allergy and prevent further imbalance in the body. An allergy to mold and fungus can be a precursor to diabetes, or a result of diabetes.
Mothers with allergies are encouraged to nurse longer, or for at least 8 months or more to help prevent the child from acquiring allergies. Allergies are formed in children when they are fed solid foods before their bodies are able to digest them. Specifically, grains should not be given to babies until they are at least 1 year old for this reason.
Common food allergies include wheat, soy, diary, refined sugar, eggs, citrus, chocolate, caffeine, shell fish, peanuts, and tomatoes. A simple way to find out if you are allergic to any food is to take your pulse before eating, if it raises after you eat, this is an indication of an allergy food. You can also muscle test yourself to determine allergens.
Symptoms: Fatigue, headaches, lack of mental focus, skin rash, nasal congestion, excess mucus (sinus, lungs, colon), rapid heartbeat, dizziness, difficulty breathing.
Major Cause: Food Allergy: Lack of digestive enzymes causes undigested food to become toxic, the toxins build up and create an allergic reaction. Also, candida is a prevalent fungal infection (with slight symptoms) that often goes unnoticed, and accentuates food allergies.
Environmental Allergy: Emotional, self pity and over sensitivity. Living life as a victim or in resentment.
