Allergy is the hypersensitivity of the immune system to specific foreign substances. Most often, the body reacts to them with inflammatory processes and the formation of so-called antibodies. Therefore, the treatment and prevention of allergies are an important step towards recovery.
According to statistics, 40% to 90% of the total population suffers from allergies. In this case, the manifestation of an allergic reaction may be of a different nature. The most common types of allergies include:
- food allergies;
- drug allergies;
- allergies to certain environmental substances, such as pollen and grass.
Allergy symptoms can also vary greatly, from the common cold, itching and burning of the mucous membranes to allergic asthma and anaphylactic shock.
When treating allergies, first of all, you should try to minimize contact with allergens. For example, if you are allergic to pollen, you should find out the period of flowering of certain plants and the period of maximum density of pollen in the air. So that at this time, you can exclude a factor provoking a reaction of the body from your environment. To do this, it is necessary to abandon the long stay and walks in places where the concentration of these plants prevails. You should be sure that your hair is always dried before leaving the house.
When the first symptoms of allergy (itching and redness of the eyes, lacrimation, sneezing attacks) appear, antihistamines can be taken as first aid, which quickly reduces the severity of allergic reactions.
If you suffer from food allergies you should be possible to completely eliminate from the diet allergenic foods or at least limit their consumption.
In general, people with allergies are recommended living in a mountainous area or close to the sea, where there is clean air with a minimum amount of allergens and pollen.
In acute forms of allergy, it will be most advisable to undergo a special therapy that allows you to eliminate its causes, not the symptoms. For example, immunotherapy or desensitization may help get rid of allergy. This method is based on the introduction into the body of a small amount of allergen, which gradually starts to produce antibodies that block the hypersensitive reaction of the immune system.
Bioresonance therapy, climate therapy, homeopathy and acupuncture also provide a good therapeutic outcome for allergies’ treatment.
