Many people suffer from allergies – seasonal, environmental and foods. What most people do not realize is that by treating their overall health and lifestyle factors that these allergies can be minimized and sometimes eliminated. Chronic food intolerances to dairy products, eggs, wheat or gluten are often found in patients with allergies, and in removing the intolerant foods from the diet, the immune system functions better in response to other allergens. Frequently people find that with naturopathic treatment (changes in diet, testing for food intolerances, liver support and cleansing), that their allergies are either gone or minimized, without any use of antihistamines. What is important to note here, is that we are improving the immune system function, rather than simply substituting a supplement for an antihistamine.
