IT’S ALLERGY SEASON HERE IN MICHIGAN — BEWARE & PREPARE!
Once spring and summer hit, allergies season peaks. Enter nasal congestion, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, scratchy or sore throat, throat clearing or even cough from postnasal drip. Yuck.
Nearly 30 million American children and adults suffer from asthma, which is when the respiratory “pipes” (bronchi) that carry air in and out of the lungs are inflamed and spasm. And every year, the disease sends more than 500,000 people to the hospital, killing 4,000 with severe, choking asthma attacks.
Fifty percent of people with asthma have attacks triggered by allergens, such as molds, dust mites, and animal dander. Of course, you can have allergies without asthma. You can have hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis), which is when your immune system mistakes pollen from grass, trees, or weeds for a foreign invader and revs up its defenses, triggering sneezing, red and itchy eyes, a stuffed and runny nose, and fatigue.
Allergies develop when your immune system mistakenly identifies a substance such as pollen, mold, animal dander, or food as harmful. That substance is referred to as an allergen. The allergen stimulates immune system cells to release certain chemicals, such as histamine, which then lead to allergy symptoms.
In addition, there are toxins in our food, water, personal care products and environment that further complicate things. There are even ingredients in some tissue bands that make it worse, such as “Isopropyl Palmitate,” which is often combined with alcohol. This can clog pores and cause or contribute to skin irritation or acne.
Uncontrolled allergies can progress into a sinus, ear or upper respiratory infection. Ongoing allergies can also weaken your immune system and make it less effective in fighting off other germs. This can make you an easy prey for colds, flu and virus germs that are circulating in your system.
Western medicine relies on medications, which can contain toxins such as trace metals, and ONLY treat symptoms. You can also talk to an allergist about immunotherapy in the form of allergy shots or oral tablets or drops, but again these ONLY relieve symptoms. And, with the cost of traditional western medicine allergy treatments and medications, you end up spending between $500-$1,000+ throughout allergy season!
Our programs can help to flush your reset and rebuild your immune system by getting to the core of your issues with our live blood allergy test. Our programs focus on providing Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which deficiencies have been shown in some studies to increase histamine production; and probiotics, which provide immune-boosting benefits to the body as a whole.
We also incorporate infrared sauna, which may be used to modify the body’s Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). In allergy sufferers, subpar or hypo-sympathetic inhibiting activity allows for the over response of the immune system. The ANS then over responds in a big way to suppress this over response when it may not be necessary.
this $375 program includes:
- Nutraceutical regiment to focus on restoring good flora with prebiotics & probiotics plus proteolytic enzymes to reduce inflammation plus an allergy supplement & vitamin C/bioflavonoid nutrient packs (4)
- External component: One, 30-min. infrared sauna session per week (4)
Weekly onsite coaching, biometric weigh-in’s & AK water refills (for flushing)
- Lifestyle & diet guide
- Biometric report at the end of the program (optional)
