Are you tired all the time, and don’t know why? Do you have headaches or joint pain or brain fog or digestive problems? Have you put on weight and find that you just can’t lose it? I want to explore with you the unsolved mystery of those common complaints that just won’t go away. In my experience, allergy is often the cause.
Maybe you never thought you had allergies. No runny nose, no itchy skin. Although it might come as a surprise, I have discovered that a hidden allergy is the underlying reason for just about any health issue, because allergies come from something we all share: the immune system.
The rise of allergies is directly attributable to our immune systems being out of balance and reacting to a modern witches’ brew of fast food, stress, chemicals, pollution, and compromised gut health.
Did you know that only one person in 30 had allergies only 50 years ago? Today that number is one in three and rising. The allergy epidemic spreading like wildfire throughout the world is getting worse, with 1 billion people suffering from allergies today.
I have found, in my clinical practice, that we need to do more than merely ask “What are you allergic to?” We need to instead ask: (1) Why are you allergic?; (2) Why have your allergies become worse; and (3) What are the underlying imbalances in your body that open the door to annoying and persistent allergic symptoms?
Hidden allergies emerge
Finding answers to these foundational questions helps us to uncover what we now know to be hidden allergies. A hidden allergy is commonly at the core of your once mysterious health concerns.
Have you experienced or do you have one or more of the following:
- Weight gain?
- Muscle aches or joint pain
- Depression or anxiety?
- Constipation or diarrhea?
- Brain fog?
The culprit could be allergy
While not many are fully aware that allergy can play a pivotal role in these and other health problems, it was this very search for answers to common, yet previously undiagnosed, conditions that inspired me to write The Allergy Solution: Unlock the Surprising, Hidden Truth About Why You Are Sick and How to Get Well.
In my practice, I’ve seen chronic conditions that were previously diagnosed as psychiatric disorders, autoimmune diseases or many other conditions that wind up being allergic in origin.
Taking on allergy with new approaches
We already know the misery that allergies can create. Fortunately, once we find out what is causing or activating them, “The case is afoot,” as Sherlock Holmes would have said!
Allergy has such a far-reaching impact on so many people with so many different problems. But your immune system needs to know when to fight and when not to fight. It needs balance.
My program helps you learn why your immune system is out of balance, so that you can restore its harmony and overcome allergies.
The secret to my program lies in the interaction between what you eat and the environments in which you live. There are 3 levels of environment that matter:
- the outdoor environment that we all share;
- the indoor environment, where we spend 90 percent of our time; and
- the internal environment within our digestive tracts.
Each of these plays a critical role in your immune system, especially with the cells that naturally prevent allergies. They’re called regulatory T-cells, or T-regs.
If you suffer from allergies, your T-regs are broken. My program is designed to help you overcome allergy by restoring the power of your T-regs.
