Sunny spring days can bring on the allergy haze!
How to Reduce Allergies Naturally
|What are Allergies?|
Allergy stems from the overactive response of your immune system. Allergies occur when you come into contact with a particular substance called an allergen. This leads to the inflammatory response called histamine from cells, which leads to allergic symptoms. There are things that we can to reduce allergic reactions.
The Bucket Theory of Toxicity
The "Bucket Theory of Toxicity", gives a helpful visualization of how your immune response can be affected by all the things in our "Toxic Bucket". Our toxic bucket fills, is filtered, and cleansed through natural body functions.
Our Liver/Gut, Kidneys, Lungs, Lymph, Colon, and Skin are our body's detoxification organs. If these organs do not receive adequate support, their ability to filter and cleanse reduces and the "toxic bucket" starts to fill.
Filling the Bucket
Our body is introduced to toxins through our environment, heavy metals, pesticides, fertilizers, cleaning products, cookware, leaky gut, makeup/skincare/cosmetics, food & food additives, water, poor quality supplements, living life (traveling, drinking, stress etc.), dysbiosis (unbalanced gut bacteria).
If we are exposed to too many toxins that our body cannot manage, the bucket starts to fill. Reducing your "Toxic Load" could allow your body the breathing room it needs to get back on track filtering and cleansing to reduce overall toxicity. At The Organic Earthling, we seek out solutions to reduce toxin contact as much as possible.
Stress can positively impact our lives if we are equipped with the proper mechanisms to manage it. When Stress becomes overly burdensome, it can become toxic and add to the bucket. Toxic Stress can reduce the body's ability to effectively modulate an immune response, and can increase allergy symptoms such as rashes, shortness of breath, and brain fog.
|Immune Response Overload|
Just like when we have too many tasks piled onto our plate, sometimes we become overwhelmed and we start making mistakes and our work actually becomes counterproductive, this can also happen with our immune system.
Your immune system is working overtime to counteract all the toxins you come into contact with and cannot keep up with the demand! This can be the reason why we develop allergies we never had. Allergins our immune system can normally manage effectively now overwhelm our immune system and cause uncomfortable or even possibly life-threatening symptoms.
| When we become overwhelmed with too many tasks in life, the best thing to do is step back, take a deep breath and ask for help and support. If your immune system is malfunctioning you may need to cut out as many toxins as possible. Give your immune system some breathing room, and introduce medicinal herbs to support healthy function. |
