Allergies Start in the Gut

Allergic Reactions Start From Within

If you are having allergic reactions, the cause could be from within, rather than from outside.

Wait, what?! It's true, allergic response is a gut issue.

Our gut is the immune system control center with billions of live bacteria running our body's immune system response. With a regular diet of fermented foods containing beneficial bacteria supporting gut health, you can say goodbye to allergies once and for all!

What is an Allergy?

An allergy occurs when our immune system reacts to a substance, an allergen, in the environment that is harmless for most people. These substances are most often associated with airborne pollen, but can also be found in dust mites, pet dander, insects, mold, some foods and some prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

When you have an allergic response, it is because your immune system views the allergen as an invader and a chain reaction is initiated, triggering white blood cells to produce antibodies for protection. These antibodies attach themselves to special cells called mast cells, causing a release of potent chemicals such as histamine.

How Do Allergies Start?

Many things can cause an imbalanced or impaired immune system. Fatigued adrenal glands, nutritional deficiencies from a poor diet, prolonged stress, go-go lifestyles, negative emotions such as worry and fear, smoking and excess alcohol consumption, all can lead to allergies of all kinds. We don’t have to look far in today's go-go world for sources of stress.

Our poor overworked adrenal glands can be rebuilt with rest, a nourishing diet, and supplementation including vitamins A, C, D and E.

The Most Common Allergy Areas:

  • The nose, eyes, sinuses and throat – When allergens are inhaled, histamine release causes the lining of your nose to produce mucus and to become swollen and inflamed. It causes your nose to run and itch and violent sneezing may occur. Your eyes may also start to water and you may get a sore throat.
  • The lungs and chest – Asthma can sometimes be triggered during an allergic reaction. When an allergen is breathed in, the lining of the passages in the lungs swells and makes breathing difficult. Not all asthma is caused by allergy, but in many cases allergy plays a part.
  • The stomach and bowel – Most stomach upsets are caused by richness or spiciness in the food itself, rather than an actual allergy. However, foods which are most commonly associated with allergy include peanuts, seafood, dairy products and eggs.
  • The skin – Skin problems such as eczema (dry, red, itchy skin) and urticaria (also known as hives) often occur. Hives are white itchy bumps which look and feel like insect bites. Food may be a factor in some cases of hives and eczema.

Probiotics Shown to Help Reduce Allergic Response

Our stomach and intestines contain billions of good and harmful bacteria, essential for digesting food and supporting your immune system functions. Probiotic actually means “for life,” while antibiotic means “anti-life.” That’s an indication of how these amazing bacteria fight for our bodies against disease.

Our gut has a protective lining called the mucosal barrier built from cells of the gut, a mucous layer, and the gut bacteria that keeps undigested food, bacteria, and any potential allergic compounds from crossing into the blood stream.

Scientific research is now demonstrating that consuming foods containing probiotics (good bacteria) can help to decrease allergic reactions in the gut, such as food allergies, as well as whole body allergic reactions.

Probiotics are not just for allergies! Improving your gut microflora also improves your skin, helps to maintain a healthy weight, give you energy and supports your overall well-being.
