Allergies: Get to the Source of the Problem
Tired of taking allergy medication every day? Get to the source of the problem.
If you suffer from frequent seasonal or year around allergy and sinus congestion problems you should look at the underlying causes. Your allergy issues may be worse because of what you eat and or your digestive gut health.
Your digestive system should breakdown your food into small enough particles so that you can absorb all of the nutrients. This same process also reduces your immune response to foods that you may be allergic or sensitive to. Your stomach acid starts the process by turning your food into a liquid. If you are low in stomach acid or are taking an acid blocking drug you are priming your body for allergy issues.
If you have reflux, burping, belching or bloating issues after eating come into Flourish and ask for your Vital Absorption Challenge to see is you need more stomach acid.
Some of the more common food allergens include food consumed on a regular basis: dairy, wheat.
The intestinal wall can be damaged by antibiotics, yeast, bad bacteria and parasites. This damage can result in leaky gut. Leaky gut allows food, bacteria, yeast and parasites to enter the body which often starts an immune response to protect you from the offending item. Part of this immune response can release histamine. Elevated histamine will prime your body to react to small amounts of external allergens like seasonal pollen or other daily exposures.
Some foods are high in histamine and should be limited or avoided. Email email@example.com for your free histamine symptoms and histamine food list. Should have this issue Flourish has a natural digestive supplement that digests histamine in the intestines and reduces many digestive symptoms.
You can take a daily probiotic that can help crowd out the bad bacteria, yeast and parasites and help the gut wall to heal. Supplementing a quality probiotic proven to have what’s on the label supports your immune system right where it matters most.
If you are low in zinc any damaged part of your body, including the gut, will be slow to heal. Medical research shows supplementing zinc reduced many allergy and skin issues.
Do you need to take zinc?
We do a Zinc Taste Test in the pharmacy to evaluate your need for zinc supplementation. Put nothing in your mouth for an hour, come into the pharmacy and we will do the zinc taste test. If you don’t notice a taste you are low in zinc.
A D3 K2
Vitamins A, D3 and K2 helps your immune system to work better to fight infections. So if you have frequent sinus nasal infections (yes I’m talking about the crud in your nose) these vitamins help your immune system. Vitamins D3 and K2 also decrease inflammation and swelling, common in the lining of the respiratory passages.
So you’re doing everything above but are still having allergy issues our fast acting natural supplement with dihydroquercetin, stinging nettle, bromelain, and N-acetyl-l-cysteine often helps.
Dihydroquercetin and stinging nettle reduce histamine levels without drowsiness and reduce the inflammatory allergic response throughout the body.
Bromelain and N-acetyl-l-cysteine help thin out congestion in the lungs, sinuses and nasal passages.
These fast acting ingredients are absorbed and work best when taken on an empty stomach.
