Food allergies can very often be at the root of many skin conditions, seasonal allergies and digestive disorders. Constant exposure to foods we are allergic or intolerant to can cause inflammation in the digestive tract, which then leads to damage. As 70 % of the immune system is in the digestive system this damaged eventually leads to over sensitivity of the immune system, which makes us more sensitive to airborne allergens. Therefore by cutting out the allergic foods and repairing the digestive system we can reduce the sensitivity to airborne allergens. Also dairy intolerance also leads to excess mucous and that runny nose.
The liver is responsible for processing and removing toxins from the body. If the body is overwhelmed with toxins the liver will not be able to remove them all and they start to recirculate in the body and build up. One of the things that needs to be removed by the liver is histamine, which is the substance released when an allergen is detected. This substance is what causes the adverse reactions we get to pollen and these reactions will persist if the histamine is not removed. Simple ways to help your liver are to reduce or eliminate coffee, alcohol, processed/take away foods and to increase fresh fruit and vegetables and water.
