When allergies strike, they leave us feeling miserable. People who suffer from them know because their symptoms are downright awful: sneezing, watery eyes, itching, rashes/hives, breathing troubles/asthma, sinus congestion, digestive disturbance, and anaphylactic shock. The list goes on and on.
There is hope, though. All allergies can be traced to immune dysfunction and gut disturbances. Everything that we ingest passes through the digestive system and things that we put on our skin or have skin contact with, are processed through our spleen. Most people are walking around with some form of leaky gut, be it Crohn’s, IBS or simple digestive disturbances. Also, people are very toxic due to the constant assault of daily life and most would benefit from routinely cleansing the blood. Therefore, to get to the root issue of allergies, it is imperative that one work on these things. Taking things like Claritin will only suppress our symptoms and drive the root issues deeper into the body.
All my patients will hear me say this time and time again, but the simplest and cheapest way to begin to heal the gut is with bone broth. It is Mother Nature’s old remedy for health. Bone broth is full of naturally occurring glutamine which is like the glue to our intestinal lining. L-glutamine is also a precursor to GABA in the brain, so it helps make us happy and calm, as well!

For cleansing the blood look to liquid chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is quite similar to the makeup of blood. Drinking an ounce or 2 daily will do wonders.

How to keep symptoms at a low while working on proper digestion and healthy blood:
- Activated Charcoal – if you know you ate something toxic
- Apis homeopathic – great for anaphylaxis and severe allergy symptoms
- Protease enzyme – helps break down foreign proteins in the body
- Nat Mur cell salt, #9 – helps keep the fluid balance proper in the body (great if one is either stuffed up or having excess mucous)
Don’t give up on your journey toward allergy elimination. Sometimes it takes times for the body to heal properly and for old symptoms to permanently resolve. With time, a proper diet and supplementation, allergies can become a thing of the past.
