What’s Causing Your Allergies?
After the long winter, spring is finally here.
For some, that also means the allergy season is upon us. It is estimated that 25 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies also known as hay fever. Most people turn to over-the-counter allergy meds and nasal sprays, but they do come with a host of unwanted side-effects. The relief obtained this way is usually short-lived and does not address the underlying issues.
Which one might be at the root of your allergies:
- Gut health –Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to a substance, especially pollen, a particular food, or dust, that causes symptoms with every exposure. Approximately 80% of the immune system is in the gut. If your gut health is compromised due to poor digestion, leaky gut and inflammation, the immune system will be affected leading to allergic reactions.
- Vitamin D – optimal levels of vitamin D are essential for a healthy immune function
- Diet – our eating habits and the ability to absorb nutrients from foods play a crucial role in our overall health. Sensitivities to certain foods in the long run can cause “leaky gut” syndrome that as the name implies, allow for undigested substances to “leak” through the intestinal wall causing inflammation and allergic reactions.
Now, what if there was a way to teach your body to stop overreacting to pollen and other allergens so that you can enjoy spring?
At Better Living, we are pleased to offer Stress Reduction Testing SRT (Biofeedback) that not only identifies individual sensitivities and stressors, but it also desensitizes your body to them so that you can enjoy life symptom free.
Stress Reduction Testing SRT (Biofeedback) has been very beneficial when it comes to identifying sensitivities as well as pin-pointing the underlying causes of your allergies. Whether the issue is coming from the digestive system, high stress levels, pH imbalance or inflammation, with this test, we are able to find the most effective starting point in bringing the body back into balance.
Stress Reduction Testing SRT (biofeedback) utilizes the latest technology to also test your body’s response to different supplements, taking the guesswork out of finding the most suitable natural health products to support your body. Toward the end of the appointment, we also balance the body using light laser therapy and specific acupuncture points. This process allows the body to stop over-reacting to these common allergens so that you can live symptom free.
