What are Allergies?

AllergiesHypersensitivities, or allergies, cause your immune system to over-react to harmless items around you. Sometimes, in the absence of “typical allergy symptoms,” the body still expends energy fighting quiet allergies.  Typically, allergies lead to inflammation and chronic inflammation has been linked to cancers, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, infections and others.

An allergy is basically an overreaction of your immune system to a substance that is normally harmless. When an allergen enters or contacts the body there is a clash between the energy field of the allergen and that of the body. The brain identifies the allergen and alerts the immune system. The body then responds with antibodies to fight off the allergen. These reactions cause blockages in the electromagnetic pathways and create allergy symptoms such as inflamation. Repeated exposure to allergens over time causes the body to become more susceptible to chronic health problems, decreased energy levels, migraines, tumors, and other health problems.

Most allergies are the end result of acquired neurological sensitivities. This is why a pregnant woman eats eggs one morning for breakfast, throws it up, then is nauseous every time she even smells eggs after that. This doesn’t automatically mean she is allergic to eggs, it means her system was programmed for a negative response to even the smell of eggs. This same process of neurological programming is taking place constantly, in varying degrees, in all of us everyday.

We go about our days under different degrees of stress and at the same time are being exposed to a variety of different substances. Remember: Eat, drink, rub on the skin, and inhale! As this happens the brain is being neurologically programmed to associate these substances with stress, some more then others. So the neurological system itself gets stressed and starts over-reacting, (an actual immune system response) to something or many things that are not really a threat.

There are different kinds of reactions. One example is small substances causing small reactions, like when a person gets a runny nose or itchy eyes daily or seasonally. Another example involves bigger/greater substances causing a full immune response, like when a person mows the lawn and feels like they are having a full blown cold the next day. And most likely these repeated exposures are causing increased reactions over time.
