Allergies

Allergies and intolerances are unfortunately very common today. Western diets, food additives, genetic modification of our food and poor lifestyle choices makes for an increased susceptibility to developing intolerance.

The predisposition to an allergy is usually something we were born with and is easy to identify because the reaction is immediate. They are often seasonal and airborne (eg pollens) or can occur through direct contact (e.g. latex) causing redness, swelling, itching and other nasty symptoms. The term anaphylaxis comes into this category and can be fatal.

People can also be allergic to food (e.g. gluten) however, intolerances are far more common but much more difficult to identify. Intolerances are known by the medical term of a delayed sensitivity reaction. This means that they tend to build up of time and the symptoms can range from irritable bowel symptoms to mere brain fog!

As part of the admission procedure in a hospital I used to work, I would ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they were, I would print it on an allergy band placed on the patients’ wrists. Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she replied she couldn’t eat nuts. Imagine my surprise when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses’ station demanding, “Who’s responsible for labelling my mother ‘nuts’?”

At DP Herbals we will identify and then successfully treat allergies and intolerances. By doing this you will improve your overall health and vitality then maintain it. No more nuts? Not a problem (and no one ever need know).
