Allergies are characterized by an overreaction of the immune system to foreign protein substances (allergens) that are ingested via eating, touching, or inhaling in to the lungs. Common symptoms of this overreaction are coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes and and runny nose. In more severe cases, the reaction can cause rashes, hives, shallow breath, lower blood pressure, and even death.
The naturopathic approach to allergies is to address and treat any weaknesses in the adrenal, immune, and digestive functions. Natural treatments are employed to improve and strengthen these functions, which in turn will alleviate allergic reactions and symptoms as a result.
