Are Allergies Becoming An Epidemic?
Allergies have become a huge concern across the globe, especially seasonal allergies.
Many people are reporting the sudden onset of hives, breathing difficulties, hay fever, and unexplained swelling for the first time in their lives, with no idea of what may have triggered these allergic reactions.
Let’s look at some allergy facts:
- 15 million people across the US were affected by food allergies in 2001. This number continues to rise each year.
- Peanut allergies have doubled from 1997 to 2002, with a 265% increase in hospitalizations.
- The top three food allergens are casein from cow dairy, shellfish, and peanuts.
- High histamine foods can trigger allergies.
- Foods prone to mold can trigger allergies.
What are Allergies?
By definition, allergies “are an abnormal response to a normal stimulus.”
The allergen is not the problem.
Our body gets exposed to an allergen and sees it as a foreign protein. It then releases IgE, which activates Mast Cells and those, in turn, influence a major immune response.
The Domino effect: Those mast cells lead to a release of histamines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. These responses then lead to skin rashes, inflammation, increased mucus production, sinus infections, coughing, and sneezing – typical allergic reactions. The inflammation can also affect the lungs leading to asthma and breathing issues.
The cause of allergies is our overactive Immune system and not the actual allergen.
Because over 80 percent of our immune system is in the gut, and allergies are a result of a dysfunctional gut, we need to heal the gut in order to eliminate allergies. In other words, if you improve your digestive health, you will boost your overall immune system, and fight all diseases, including any allergic response in the body.
80 percent of our immune system is in the gut, and allergies are a result of a dysfunctional gut, we need to heal the gut in order to eliminate allergies.
When your gut health is compromised, you can suffer from LEAKY GUT, which is a deterioration of the Gut.
Bacteria in the gut outnumber the amount of human cells in your body 10 to 1! You have 100 trillion bacteria in your GUT alone! Furthermore, you have beneficial viruses in the gut called Bacteriophages that outnumber the Bacteria 10 to 1— that is 1 quadrillion bacteriophages in your gut!
Our gut biome is one of the most complex ecosystems on the planet.
When you have poor gut health, the gut lining deteriorates resulting in LEAKY GUT. Upon leaky gut developing, foreign proteins from what we consume go through the holes in the intestinal lining, into the bloodstream and cause an auto-immune response. Inflammation and allergic responses then occur. Once you heal the gut, the allergies and inflammation subside. By increasing our immune system, you increase the defense against all diseases, including allergies.
Natural Supplements for Allergy Relief / Elimination of Allergies
1. Eliminate Common Foods that Trigger Allergies
Peanuts, dairy, and shellfish are the most common foods to trigger an inflammatory response.
Peanuts aren’t just peanuts anymore, and dairy isn’t just dairy. Let’s talk about dairy in particular.
In the mid1990’s, a new food protein was engineered and introduced into the food supply in order to maximize profitability – this was done with no human trials.
The first food to undergo this change was milk (pasteurized).
GE rBGH (genetically engineered recombinant bovine growth hormone) was given to cows to increase milk production. However, it also increased disease rates for the cows, and then, instead of banning it, dairy farmers combated the issues by treating dairy cows with low serves of antibiotics. This has led to superbugs that were resistant to antibiotics.
Countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and 27 countries in Europe all banned this substance, while the U.S. continued to allow it.
2. Eliminate Mold
Foods that have mold may trigger allergies. These foods include beans, green beans, peas, green olives, grapes, mushrooms, brazil nuts, peanuts, pistachios, sesame seeds, lentils, soy, blue cheese, and corn.
3. Eliminate Lectins
Foods containing lectin may cause a leaky gut and trigger an allergic response. They include grains, peppers, tomatoes, gluten, and foods from the nightshade family.
4. Eliminate High Histamine Foods
These include alcohol, avocado, dried fruits, spinach, processed or smoked meats, shellfish, fermented drinks, aged cheese, beans, wheat, nuts, and food additives.
5. Eliminate Oxalates
Oxalates are found in foods including almonds, most nuts, spinach berries, kiwis, chocolate, beets, Swiss Chard, and more. Read ‘What Are The Symptoms Of High Oxalates’ for more information about high oxalate foods.
6. Eat Organic
Non-organic food has been sprayed with GMOs and glyphosate. These toxins may quickly tear holes in the gut lining, leading to the leaky gut. They are extremely inflammatory and will lead to allergies.
7. Intermittent Fast
By eating your meals in a shortened time frame of 2-8 hours, your gut has the “downtime” to reduce the inflammation, heal the tight junctions, and reset its ability to break down nutrients properly. This also allows the body to engage in a process called autophagy, where it starts recycling and cleaning up the damaged cells and tissues.
8. Low Carb Diet
Sugar, carbohydrates and glucose are inflammatory and can trigger allergies. By focusing on a high protein diet, lowering your carbs, and eliminating all processed foods, the gut is able to heal, systemic inflammation comes down and allergies are better managed.
Exercise increases the diversity of your gut bacteria which helps keep allergies at bay.
10. Eliminate Medications
NSAIDS (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) destroy the mitochondria in your cells and cause dysfunction in your gut bacteria; all of these factors increase the chances of allergies.
Disclaimer: Do not attempt to stop prescribed medications without seeking the advice of your medical practitioner.
11. Drink Filtered Water
Fluoridated and chlorinated water that we are provided kills gut bacteria. By drinking and using filtered water in your house, you are minimizing your exposure to these toxins that are known to lead to allergies.
Natural Supplements to Improve and/or Eliminate Your Allergies
This comprehensive cleanse incorporates the Accelerated Keto®, Acceleradine®, Accelerated Silver®, Accelerated Cellular Detox Powder®, and supplements to help flush gallstones and liver stones out of the body safely.
The synergistic combination reduces inflammation, heals the gut, resets the immune system, and lowers allergic responses. Furthermore, it increases ATP production and efficacy and increases endurance, physical energy, mental clarity, metabolism, mitophagy, autophagy, and thyroid health.
As a result of completing the cleanse, participants report losing body fat, especially the dangerous visceral fat, increasing the cells’ phase angle or the cells’ ability to absorb nutrients and release toxins that affect ATP production, while improving mental and physical energy.
Accelerated Scalar Silver® is enhancing your immune system’s ability to devitalize foreign pathogens including those that contribute to allergic responses.
If your immune system is bombarded with fighting foreign pathogens, it can’t simultaneously engage in anti-allergenic mechanisms. By keeping the immune system strong, the body engages in anti-inflammatory processes, leading to optimal health.
Accelerated Keto™ flips you into ketosis within 30 minutes. When the body switches from utilizing glucose for energy to using ketones from fat, the toxic waste produced minimizes, the inflammation reduces significantly, and the oxidative stress decreases immensely. All of these mechanisms significantly improve allergic reactions.
Glucose is inflammatory to the brain and all of the tissues in the body. Accelerated Keto™ gives the brain and body a new fuel system that can actually regenerate old cells through a process called Autophagy and by fueling cells that are resistant to glucose and subsequently die. Furthermore, ATP production in the mitochondria of the cells increases, which in true cellular energy; with increased ATP and cellular energy, the cells are able to regenerate more efficiently, including the stem cells.
The additional ingredients in the Accelerated Keto™ break down saturated fats into unsaturated fats. These unsaturated fats are easier for the body to utilize and easier for the body to convert to ketones. Because of this property, Accelerated Keto™ is able to de-fat the liver as well.
It is well known that the liver is responsible for converting stored fat into ketones. The more a person’s liver is defatted and unclogged, the easier it is for the liver to function in all areas including producing ketones, detoxing the bombardment of toxins from the body that are responsible for allergic and auto-immune responses.
Acceleradine® is the only Monoatomic Iodine Supplement with bonus extras. Not only is Iodine is anti-allergenic, but it is antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant, antihistamine, mucolytic, and hydrating (2006, Miller).
It detoxifies the body, increases metabolism and energy, and performs a unique function known as healthy apoptosis. Healthy apoptosis is the natural death of traumatized and unhealthy cells. All of these factors eliminate allergic reactions.
Lifewave X39 Stem Cell Patches activate a peptide called GHK to increase your own stem cell production and reset ‘4000 Genes to Younger State’.
It helps the body detox allergens and breaks them down more easily in addition to lowering inflammation throughout the body. As a result, it helps repair collagen in all tissues, activates stem cell production, encourages apoptosis of cancer cells, and discourages metastatic cancer cells.
Not only will copper peptide increase the ability for stem cells to target an injury site, but also it will revert stem cells to pluripotent stem cells and increase the number of stem cells circulating the body.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant, detoxifier, immune booster, and neuroprotector; all of these factors improve allergic reactions.
This miraculous patch increases glutathione by 300% in 24 hours. When it is worn with the X39 Patch, glutathione production increases to 400%.
Additionally, it is antiviral, and great for infections. For chronic issues, it brings glutathione levels up so suffering goes down in symptoms like allergies, autoimmune issues, arthritis, autism, MS, and Parkinson’s.
It is known to help with longevity. The glutathione patch signals the body to make its own glutathione; it is not transdermal glutathione.
The Aeon Lifewave patch increases SOD antioxidants in the body, decreases inflammation, and is turning on our innate immune system; all of these mechanisms help allergies.
Aeon Patch benefits include stress reduction, a healthy inflammatory response, a reduction of cortisol & C reactive proteins, an elevation of DHEA, a calm sense of well-being, and increased energy. It puts you into the parasympathetic state so you are not constantly in the sympathetic state of “fight or flight”.
MegaSporeBiotic is a probiotic blend of 5 Bacillus spores that have been shown to maintain a healthy gut barrier and immune function. The bi-phasic life cycle of the Bacillus spores allows them to remain dormant in harsh environments until they reach more favorable environments like the human gastrointestinal tract.
Once inside the large intestine, these dormant spores can change into their active, vegetative forms and begin colonizing in the gut. This unique probiotic blend aims to RECONDITION the gut instead of reseeding with probiotic strains that cannot survive digestion or colonize the gut. An optimized gut is essential to eliminate allergies.
