We are conditioned by thousands of ads a day, to equate diseases with their symptoms. Headache, back pain, bronchitis, eczema, arthritis, ringing in the ears, asthma, high blood pressure, over and over again - these are usually not diseases themselves, but signs of the disease. The illusion is that temporarily, by covering up the signs, we have cured the disease.
What are allergies?
Your friend sees your bloodshot eyes, hears your congested voice, and accepts the explanation "it's my allergy", as if the symptoms he sees are the same disease. This word game is not accidental. We are conditioned by thousands of ads a day, to equate diseases with their symptoms. The illusion is that temporarily, by covering up the signs, we have cured the disease. The illusion is that by naming the signs, the disease has been identified.
Nothing could be further from the truth
You have a headache. Solution, scheduled every five minutes on TV: Tylenol, Advil, whatever, who's going to do what? That's right: eliminate pain. But wait - the pain wasn't the cause of the problem. The headache had a reason, it was a sign of something else. Neck spasm, intoxication, emotional stress, sinus allergies, trauma, misaligned posture, medications, chemical sensitivity, overwork, dehydration, hunger - pain can come from many sources. The pill doesn't solve anything, it doesn't cure anything. As soon as it is spent, guess what? True - the pain returns. So what are we taught to do? More pills.
The same goes for allergies. Allergies are not watery eyes and a stuffy nose. Allergies are reactions to irritants. Something strange is causing the body's responses to cleanse itself. It's like walking behind a smoke-filled bus when it starts. You breathe in the smoke and you start to cough and feel like you are choking, with your eyes full of tears. That is an allergic response. Humans are allergic to bus emissions. Watery eyes to clean the eyes. Coughing reflects forcibly expelling toxic gases before they are inhaled. It happens in an instant.
Tolerance is an adaptation to stress. When we get used to an irritant, the body finally gives up trying to expel it. Like a bus mechanic. After a few weeks or months of breathing in the fumes of every day, the body does not work as hard. The sensitive mucous membranes in the mouth and nose stiffen a bit, and the mechanic learns to "take it." You are less and less sensitive to a poison - carbon monoxide. It does not mean that it will not kill him, but it only means that the body is getting used to that degree of being poisoned. The irritant is no longer eliciting as strong a response as the cleaning it used to do.
The same goes for someone who is learning to smoke cigarettes. He coughs and chokes at first, but soon grabs onto it. The body's ability to rid itself of toxins gradually weakened.
We have all heard of antihistamines. The pills and sprays that unclog stuffy noses. They work by blocking histamines. Histamines are produced by our white blood cells to activate protective mechanisms, such as congesting the nose, making the eyes watery, and shutting down digestion. Allergy medicine is usually an antihistamine, which strangely interferes with the body's normal attempts to protect itself. The mouth, nose and eyes - that is the first line of defense.
When antihistamines block these normal responses from happening, the irritant or allergen or antigen is allowed more into the body than it ever would have gotten. This is a side effect of antihistamines. You can be thankful that you can breathe again. The problem wasn't the stuffy nose or the watery eyes, the problem was the allergen: the irritant. Antihistamines do not touch the underlying cause, but will only suspend the body's ability to respond with its normal compensatory mechanisms. Result: tolerance. Toxicity.
Isn't this obvious? Holistic practitioners tire of explaining this self-evident fact over and over dozen times a day to their patients. It is as if you are driving on the highway and suddenly you hear a horrendous noise coming from the engine. So you turn up the volume on the radio in order to cover up the noise. Pretty stupid, but that's precisely what we're doing with allergy medications.
HIDE THE SYMPTOMS
The allergy treatment approach should be the elimination of the fundamental stimuli of the obstruction of the paranasal sinuses and the runny nose and eyes. First, identify the causative factor. Cat hair, dust, pollen, shellfish, wool, etc.? I do not think so. Normal people can be around all of them and not react. Genetics? The usual excuse, when the "experts" run out of ideas. We have no idea, so let's attribute it to the standard output - of all categories: genetics.
While we do not know, the best we can do is continue in the purchase and sale of antihistamines and their derivatives. As a $ 15 billion a year industry, why would anyone want to question it? Doctors sell drugs, that's why we go to them. If you want health, well that's a completely different topic.
There is another possibility here that thousands of people have discovered in recent years. A new paradigm must be considered to explain the constant success that detox patients are having in solving their chronic allergies. This construction can be called the threshold of reactivity. It is really very simple.
THE THRESHOLD OF REACTIVITY
Have you ever been to a grocery store and noticed all these little ones running down the aisles yelling at Mommy buy me this, Mommy I want this, pointing to all those refined, fattening foods they've learned to need by watching ads on the street? television? And then do you see all those same items appear in the box?
Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and noticed those little paper cups filled with Coke that they give to babies?
American children are getting fatter, sicker, and dumber than ever in our history. This is not simply a provocative statement, but it is easily documented in all relevant scientific and government statistics on allergy, obesity, and neurodevelopment.
This is the key idea of this chapter: refined processed foods cannot be digested. When a child is born, his tract and blood are clean and clear. As you start eating all this junk that cannot be metabolized, residual sludge builds up in your digestive tract and in your blood. Let's call this accumulation of toxic charge.
Okay, so let's say there is a threshold, a level of toxicity below which the child does not react to junk foods - no asthma, watery eyes, runny nose, skin rashes, etc., but over time the Toxic load builds up to the point that one day it crosses over the line, exceeds the threshold, and now the child reacts - any type of allergic reaction can occur. By this time the patient has developed as an accumulated toxic food load that has exceeded the body's ability to deal with them - to break them down and process them. We say that you have reached the threshold of reactivity - and that it is the end of childhood, in a health sense.
Result: asthma, allergies, skin conditions, cough, bronchitis, chronic fatigue, lack of development, etc. So what do most people do at that time? Take the child to the doctor and consult one of those 15-year-olds who was a resident that week, and who after a five-minute interview declares that the child has an “allergy” that is due to a genetic deficiency of Benadryl, or others medicines. And in one shot the patient is now classified as allergic and put on a regiment of drugs that will last for years. Not a word about the box of Corn Flakes and the 4 donuts or flour donuts that the child has for breakfast or the 4 cookies that he has at school during the day or the ice cream he needs for his midnight snack.
Neither of those are taken into the equation. No, this is all "genetics" according to the doctors. "It's not your fault".
Do you know someone on allergy medication? Do you still have allergies? All invariably.
