Seasonal Allergies! Just A Symptom?

As the seasons are changing and the temperature is dropping you may be experiencing some congestion, sniffles, sneezing, watery eyes or even a skin rash.

There are many over the counter remedies for allergies, but they usually include steroids, antihistamines and avoidance practices.  Here is a big secret, allergies are only a symptom.

Allergies Are Only a Symptom of Toxicity Not the Root Cause

Those over the counter remedies are only suppressing your symptoms. As a Doctor of Natural Medicine we address allergies by first learning the root cause of your symptoms so you can get rid of your allergies for good. Once we determine the root cause, i.e. why you are experiencing these symptoms in the first place, then we can heal the issue and get rid of your allergies, and not just suppress them.

Symptoms are the only way that our body knows how to communicate with us.  Symptoms are signals from our body telling us that something is wrong, misaligned or needs attention.  If you listen to your body as it communicates to you through symptoms, you can create an important opportunity to heal.   The good news is your body is healthy enough to tell you that something is overwhelmed in your system.  

Top 3 Causes of Seasonal Allergies

As a Doctor of Natural Medicine, we dig deep to identify the root cause of symptoms.  This is exactly where traditional healthcare falls short.  We don’t want to suppress your symptoms, we want to do some investigating and follow your symptoms like clues to identify the root cause so we can resolve it.

Top 3 Causes of Seasonal Allergies

  • Food
  • Chemicals
  • Environmental

You can’t eat, you can’t breathe, and you can’t go outside! There has to be a better way. And there is.

The Root cause of Allergies is Toxicity and the Solution is Detoxing

Whether your allergies are expressing themselves as sensitivity to food, chemicals or environmental, the root cause is the same: organ toxicity and infection and the solution is the same: Detoxing.

Our bodies, organs and digestion are overwhelmed and ridden with harmful toxins, particularly affecting the function of the gallbladder, liver, and kidney.  When our organs are working overtime, this causes our immune system to try and keep up by activating our bodies natural defenses.  This increased immune response taps your kidneys and adrenals because of the stress overload.

Detoxing if not done properly can do more harm than good to our bodies.  Holistic detoxing focuses on boosting the immune system, supporting the digestive system, opening the lymphatic system while supporting each and every organ.  Jumping right into killing infection and draining environmental toxicity without first boosting your immune system can lead to fatigue and extra organ stress. Holistic detoxing is the most effective way to eliminate allergies for good.
