Allergic symptoms are a result of the immune system reacting inappropriately to substances in our environment that are normally harmless. This type of reaction causes an inflammatory response within the body, which can range from uncomfortable to potentially dangerous.
Many people suffer daily from reactions to foods, mold, dust, and pet dander. There are also many people who suffer seasonally resulting from allergies to a variety of plants.
Very often, simple changes can relieve the inappropriate immune reaction causing allergic symptoms. Some of these changes include dietary modifications and nutritional or herbal supplements. A visit to one of our naturopathic doctors, for treatment of your allergies will involve an assessment of your symptoms as well as a breakdown of your lifestyle and dietary habits that may be contributing to your immune system dysfunction.
