Wellness Genie – All About Allergies!

Allergies

Hello beautiful readers! Thank you for subscribing to wellnessgenie.blog. Ā All my love!

Today I want to touch on the topic of allergies. I recently had an allergy screeningĀ for food allergiesĀ done and I was surprisedĀ at my food intolerances.Ā  I take good measures to improve my health and wellbeing daily- supplement, diet, exercise, meditation & now I have a report highlighting a few allergies! I was disappointed but more importantly aware of my body & awareness is always a blessing!Ā Allergy Screening helps you identify your foodĀ allergies and common allergies & it is always advisable to get one done.

Wheat, Gluten, NutsĀ and Milk Allergies are among the common ones.Ā Common environmental Allergies are- Pollen, Dust and Pet Dander. The list does go on.

What is an allergy? Allergies are hypersensitive immune responses to substances that come in contact with the body. These substances are called the ‘allergens’. Allergy symptoms can sometimes be mild and in the case of aĀ severe allergy can lead to a serious allergic reaction called anaphylaxis ( This needs treatment immediately) Some of the symptoms of allergies areĀ sneezing, itchy eyes,Ā  runny or blocked nose,Ā red watery eyes, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, cough &Ā nausea. Food allergies can also have digestive cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and bloating.

Allergies- A Natural Approach:

Neti Pot and Saline Rinse : You can make your own saline rinse using Himalayan salt or sea salt in boiled distilled water. Using the Neti Poy with your saline solution helps clear the sinuses and flush out the allergens. Make sure the solution is sterile.

Get a good probiotic:Ā  We need beneficial bacteria in the GUT. This helps restore overall balance between the good and bad bacteria in the GUT.Ā  When looking at a probiotic make sure the probi is suitable for your constitution. I also take Kefir MilkĀ (does not taste too good) butĀ  has great benefits andĀ high probiotic content.

Quercetin: Quercetin is a bioflavanoid that stabilises the release of histamine and helps control allergy symptoms naturally.

Diet Check:Ā Ā Making the necessaryĀ changes to your diet can assist with overall health and wellbeing. Identify your food allergens and discuss an allergy treatmentĀ plan with your practitioner.

Anti Allergy Injections– Anti -Allergy Injections thatĀ we as practitionersĀ administer are natural and homeopathic in nature. There are used in an acute situation to bring relief from allergy symptoms.

These are general guidelines for allergies, getting an allergy screening done, identifying your allergiesĀ and taking the right approachĀ for your body with aĀ practitioner can be greatly beneficial in healing allergies.

Allergy Screening is offered at Life Force Health and Wellness Centre based in Johannesburg.Ā  Life Force also offers wellnessĀ services to the Western Cape & KZN. Contact the centre for more information. (www.lifeforcehealthwellness.com)
