Healing Reactions are Not Allergic Reactions

An allergy is defined as: “A condition in which the body has an exaggerated response to a substance introduced by inhalation, ingestion, 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 as healing reactions.

These reactions are created by the body as a healing response, indicating that it 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 other toxic sources in our environment and foods as well, which add to the toxic overload on the body. Some substances aren’t merely toxic; they are poisonous, which causes direct debilitating damage.

It is widely published that allergies are caused by poor health. At the same time allergic responses and symptoms means the body is working extremely hard to maintain its health in spite or poor nutrition, toxins, stresses, etc. Many people mistakenly assume they are allergic to many healthy foods, herbs, spices, etc. because of allergy tests or body reactions, which doctors also label as allergic. Please note that almost all allergy tests are inaccurate and they should not be relied upon to determine your allergies. Some allergies are obvious, because they are caused by toxic substances, i.e. room deodorizers, smoke, chemicals in the air, body care products, cleaning products, etc.), smog, chemtrails, pesticides, etc.

But allergies to animal dander, dust mites, dust, mold, pollen, grass, etc. are less obvious. However, not everyone reacts negatively to these substances, which obviously points to a person who is unhealthy and not able to detoxify like they should. It is a fact that the body can, and will, react to good unadulterated foods with “allergic-like” symptoms, which is exactly the same way it reacts to toxins or poisons. However, reactions to good foods are not allergic reactions, they are healing reactions. When the body receives the nutrients it needs to heal, it goes into high gear, doing its job of healing, which creates healing symptoms.

The long list of healing symptoms 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.

In fact hives are a healing reaction too when the body releases histamines and other chemicals into the bloodstream to handle toxins or to affect healing. Histamines causes hives, rashes, itching, swelling, and other related symptoms. Although hives may be uncomfortable, they are generally quite harmless and disappear on their own. Therefore, do not be alarmed if you get healing reactions from good unadulterated foods like eggs, coconut oil, butter, meats, etc. If you get reactions that are alarming or intolerable just cut back on the amount a little bit and gradually increase it.
