SYMPTOMS & SYSTEMS
Inappropriate sensitivities and allergic reactions occur when the body is exposed to allergens, allergen families, or substances. Symptoms vary from person to person depending on the allergens. For instance, pollens and airborne pollutants or irritants may cause the respiratory system to react, whereas, the digestive system may react to whey in one person, but another may react with hives, rash, or acid reflux.
Many conditions result from inappropriate reactions to allergens.These symptoms can include digestive issues such as: IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), acid reflux, gas, bloating, a and diarrhea. Respiratory distress is evident if one experiences sneezing, wheezing, asthma, and coughing. Dermatological reactions may include rash, hives, blisters or eczema
and psoriasis. Behavioral manifestations of allergic reactions can be seen in children with ADD/ADHD
that show hyperactivity,
short attention span, and
even episodic crying or hysterical fits.
Household and occupational exposures can also create allergic reactions through chemicals, cleaners, building materials, detergents, pesticides, and deodorizers.
THE ALLERGY RELIEF PROTOCOL
Addresses symptoms related to each specific allergen.
HEADACHES & SINUS IRRITATION
• Sinus pressure or pain
• Blurred vision
• Sensitivity to light
Sensitivities to allergens that cause symptoms such as headaches, migraines and sinus inflammation can be triggered by foods that contain caffeine, chocolate, and whey. Perfume, chemicals, cleaners and pollens, which are all considered airborne allergens, could also trigger reactions in the head and sinus area.
• Dark circles under eyes
• Eye swelling or puffiness
• Fibromyalgia type symptoms
These symptoms are generally caused by food allergies or can be more noticeable at certain times of the day such as the afternoon, also known as the afternoon crash. Symptoms may also occur after eating.
SKIN REACTIONS / DERMATOLOGICAL
Many dermatological symptoms are caused by food allergies or sensitivities but can also be manifested after contact with substances found in plants and chemicals, cleaners, lotions and shampoos for example.
• Skin irritations
• Itchy/Red/watery eyes
• Sratchy/Swollen throat
Seasons bring on many respiratory reactions that may include one or several of these reactions. Irritants may include seasonal foods, weeds, plants, pollen, dust, chemicals, and pet dander.
• Abdominal Gas/Bloating
• Intestinal Pain
• IBS/Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Acid Reflux
• Crohn’s Disease
Digestive disorders and symptoms are generally brought about by foods or drinks ingested that travel through the digestive tract.
& BEHAVIOR: ADD/ADHD
• Lack of Focus
• Irrational or Erratic Behavior
• Short Attention Span
Many ADD/ADHD symptoms can be attributed to food allergies or sensitivities. Physical symptoms, and particularly behavioral manifestations, may occur after ingesting food contents and additives such as sugars, yeast, wheat, and soy. Additionally, many other ingredients can also trigger disorders related to ADD/ADHD.
