Stress and allergies:

As some of you may already know firsthand allergies can be debilitating for millions of people. The more common signs and symptoms include; itchy eyes, sneezing, cough, ear aches, chest congestion, headaches, rash, fatigue, mood swings to mention a few. The most common causes are logical and usually easily understood by sufferers which are environmental irritants such as dust, grass, pollen, dogs, cats  and of course food allergies.

However, the impact of stress on allergies is all too often overlooked. In my clinical practice I have come to learn that stress can aggravate almost all allergy symptoms. This is why I always educate my patients to understand the impact of stress on their symptoms.

What are the more common stressors? A recurring theme I have noticed are emotional issues usually associated with personal life/relationships, work, and financial strains. Patients are quick to identify the source of their stress, but many never directly relate this stress to activating or irritating their allergies. I believe this is where my 28 years of expertise and experience comes into play to sort out the complexities in identifying a truly physical/chemical causal relationship to allergies or is it psychological stress! This has become an interesting phenomenon.

When we are experiencing excessive stress regardless of whether it be physical, emotional or psychological our bodies will naturally release a hormone called cortisol. This hormone will trigger a primitive response of flight or fight. This response will allow us to fight back or run away from the stressor. Unfortunately this will also stimulate the body resulting in an increased allergic reaction causing chemicals in the blood stream. The result is more itching, pain, aches, sneezing, coughing, and rashes, etc. Something as simple as poor sleep habits can be attributed as one such stressor.

Other stress can come from poor diet habits, travel, and geographic stress, personality disorders such as depression and anxiety. Chemical stressors such as environmental chemicals, solvents, pollutants, and organic toxins such as pesticides and hormones. Again here, many can relate to the source of the stress, but never make the connection to their allergies!

So how do stressors affect allergy symptoms? Chemicals we are exposed to can trigger the release of inflammatory substances by our immune systems. The purpose of this is to generate an immune response so the body can naturally protect itself. Unfortunately, this also will lead to a worsening of allergy symptoms.

This is what I usually recommend to start; obviously eating as clean as possible, no chemicals, no refined sugars and no preservatives. Avoid exposure to toxic chemicals which should be a priority initially. This includes exposure to perfumes and deodorants. I'm always struck to see patients suffering unbearable allergy symptoms but are wearing strong perfumes, as they are not aware this can trigger severe allergic flare ups, especially through direct exposure through the nose and eyes. Also, remember to get plenty of sleep and try to do what you can to keep your physical, emotional and psychological stress to a minimum during allergy season! Simple changes in diet and life style can have an enormous impact on reducing allergy signs and symptoms without the need for strong drugs. Remember educate, evaluate, and empower yourself!

About The Lost Wisdom Newsletter

As most of us have noticed over these last few decades modern science and technology have been advancing exponentially. Even in my short time here we have come from getting up off the sofa to turn a knob in order to change the channels on the TV. To lying on the sofa using a smart phone to operate and surf all 500 hundred channels! I believe in many ways people just take it for granted that new science is automatically the best science!

There is no doubt about the numerous benefits of newly discovered science and technology, however, we need to respect and understand the past and the science behind what we once thought of as just a simple life style and simple health practices! Practices our parents, grandparents and great grandparents used even though they didn't fully understand the science behind the benefits. They just knew these practices were beneficial, they just did not know the how and why. But now we know that our intuition was correct all along, and we have the science to prove it!

At that time experience and observation, empirical evidence, was the key factor in these older practices. Many of which were passed down from generation to generation with absolute conviction and trust. Remember these practices would have been stopped if their safety and effectiveness were in doubt. It was clearly defined over the years with no bias.

Unfortunately, as the generations passed these pearls of wisdom were forgotten, discredited and eventually lost. These pearls of wisdom are what refer to as lost wisdom!

Learn more about true preventative healthcare here each week, as I plan to get into other examples where it can be applied, as well as other relevant topics.
