History of Allergies

Allergies and hay fever are among the most common symptoms suffered by people today. Every year allergy medications are among the top five best selling drugs and if you count asthma, skin issues, and food allergies, almost one out of three people have some sort of allergy.

Surprisingly, doctors in the early 1900s rarely described allergic reactions. However, since then there have been many dramatic changes in our life-styles, foods, habits, and the environment that caused an increase in allergic diseases.

Modern medicine created terms such as allergic reactions, allergies, immune system, immunity, etc. because they do not understand that all symptoms and reactions are simply “signs” that something is not right and that all disease processes are exactly the same as healing and detoxifying processes created by the body itself in an effort to maintain its health as best it can, in spite of poor nutrition, toxins, stress, etc. This is called Homeostasis, which means:

  1. The ability of an organism or a cell to regulate its internal conditions, usually by a system of feedback and controls, in order to stabilize health and functioning.
  2. The ability of the body or a cell to seek and maintain a condition of stability and health within its internal environment when dealing with internal or external changes or influences.

Modern medicine labels each and every “sign” of poor health as separate diseases, illnesses, symptoms, reactions, syndromes, organ malfunctions, etc. that are actually normal body reactions and processes. In other words, they are simply “signs” the body is attempting to restore its own balance. As Florence Nightengale, the famous nurse, says: “There are no specific diseases; there are [only] specific disease conditions.”

In the book Medical Nemesis Ivan Illich says: “Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn’t organized to serve human health, but only to serve itself as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.” [Nemesis means “a source of harm or ruin”.]

What are Allergies?

An allergy is defined as: "A condition in which the body has an exaggerated response to a substance introduced by inhalation, ingestion (eating), injection, or skin contact, often manifested by itchy eyes, runny nose, wheezing, skin rash, hives, diarrhea, gas, bloating, headaches, aching muscles, joint pain, and many others. Please note that these reactions are exactly the same symptoms created by the body which are healing reactions.

These reactions are created by the body as a healing response, indicating that the body is working very hard to eliminate and/or minimize the effects of toxic overloads on the body, or the ingestion of a poison. There are many kinds of toxic sources in our environment and foods, which adds to the toxic overload on the body. Some substances aren’t merely toxic, but act just like poison, which causes direct debilitating damage.

Many people mistakenly assume they are allergic to many healthy foods, herbs, spices, etc. because of allergy tests or their symptoms and reactions, which doctors label as allergies. However, all allergy tests are inaccurate and they should not be relied upon to make decisions about your health. However, some allergies are obvious because they are caused by toxic substances, i.e. chemicals in the air from deodorizers, antiseptics strays, body care products, cleaning products, smog, chemtrails, pesticides, herbicides, etc. But allergies to animal dander, dust mites, dust, mold, pollen, etc. are less obvious. However, not everyone reacts negatively to these substances, which points to the depressed health of the person’s who react to them.

The body creates healing reactions and symptoms to healthy unadulterated foods direct from Nature, producing "allergic-like" symptoms too, exactly the same way it reacts to toxins or poisons. However reactions to healthy foods are not allergic reactions, instead they are healing reactions, because of how the body heals itself naturally. When it receives nutrients it needs to heal, it goes into high gear, doing its job of healing, which creates healing symptoms and reactions.

In fact the long list of healing symptoms and reactions are exactly the same as the long list of allergic reactions, i.e. increased mucus in all mucus membranes (nose, sinuses, throat, lungs, intestines, stomach, etc.), headaches, stomach upset, gas, bloating, difficulty breathing, inflammation, heart palpitations, swelling, rashes, hives, diarrhea, constipation, fever, etc.

Hives and other skin eruptions are healing reactions too. They are be cause the body releases histamines and other chemicals into the bloodstream to handle toxins or to affect healing. Histamines cause hives, rashes, itching, swelling, and other related symptoms. Although hives and other skin eruptions may be uncomfortable, they are generally quite harmless and disappear on their own as the body continues its healing processes.

Therefore, do not be alarmed if you get healing reactions from good foods like eggs, coconut oil, butter, and other good unadulterated foods. If you get reactions that are alarming or intolerable cut back on the amount and gradually increase it. Your body is designed to use good unadulterated foods in order to be healthy.

Specific Causes of “Supposed” Allergies

Excessive Estrogens – We are living in the age of estrogen. The food supply is laden with traces of herbicides, pesticides and petrochemical residues from plastics, all of which have estrogen-like, endocrine (mainly thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands) disrupting effects in animals and humans.

These xenobiotics, or foreign biological substances, have been linked to abnormalities and cancers of human tissues that are hormone sensitive. Our bodies regulate and eliminate estrogens by the action of detoxifying enzymes in the liver.

Lack of Vitamin C and Too Many Refined Carbs & Sugars – One of the best theories on the origin of allergies is that they are related to an imbalance in the functioning of our adrenal gland. More exactly, when the adrenal cortex – that part of our adrenal gland that makes various hormones (such as cortisone) that mediate (regulate) the inflammatory response – is weak or underactive, then it has to work harder to heal and it contains more toxins that need to be eliminated.

Adrenal hormones regulate such functions as sugar balance, mineral balance, and sexual development and they also cause inflammation and increase mucus production as a healing response, which can manifest as asthma, weeping skin or hay fever, depending upon the site of problem.

Adrenal hormones are synthesized from cholesterol (fat), and the adrenal cortex is the organ in our bodies with the most need for the vitamin C complex and ocean sea salt to maintain its function. The adrenal cortex is also very sensitive to blood sugar levels and consumption of refined carbohydrates {and sugar} is the cause of many cases of allergies.

Poor Nutrition – The lack of the correct combination of nutrients in foods eaten, and eating foods that are damaging or dead (microwaved and irradiated foods) definitely contributes to allergic symptoms, and other diseases and ailments, including cancer.

Today’s standard diet lacks the necessary nutrients to maintain a Human health. It is loaded with sugar, high carbohydrates, hydrogenated oils and fats (margarine, Mazola oil, soybean oils, Crisco, Canola oil; trans-fats, etc.), white flour products, processed foods, food additives, preservatives, pesticides, and heavy metals.
