According to Dr. Ellen Tart-Jensen "Allergies occur when the immune system is compromised. They occur when the clear fluids of our bodies called the lymph fluids become congested. They also occur to people that have been under lots of stress and have weakened adrenal glands. Some people have genetic tendencies for allergies. People can be allergic to almost anything, but the most common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, animal hair, cosmetics, perfumes, drugs such as sulfa, food additives, chemicals found in soaps and lotions and certain foods. Allergic reactions include congested sinuses, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, nose blowing, watering, burning, itching eyes, sore throat, itching skin, hives, skin rashes, headaches, fatigue and sometimes vomiting. Asthma is also often a result of certain allergic reactions.
What you want to know & remember
An allergy is the body's defense against a substance which is not normally harmful to the body. Pollens, dust, insect bites and stings, foods, molds, and animal hair, to name a few, cannot really hurt the body. They are known as allergens.
A weaken immune system may have the wrong reaction to allergens as it releases an excess of inflammatory chemicals (histamines). This, in turn, produces the undesirable symptoms mentioned above.
Antihistamines also often produce undesirable side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness and even depression, dry mouth, nausea and vomiting, restlessness or moodiness (in some children), difficulty urinating or inability to urinate, blurred vision, confusion are some of the possible side effects.
Let us deal with allergies "naturally" with some common sense approach!
Unless it is an allergy that is life-threatening, try one of these methods before you reach for the multi-colored pills.
