Everyone has an allergy to everything! Everywhere you look, everyone does something, but cannot stand it: food, boss, annoying neighbors, but, in fact, life in most of its manifestations.
The word allergy has become a household name, but it is easy to use it in everyday life only by those who have not experienced the hardships of this disease. Since, the categorical rejection of an organism by one or another factor not only complicates existence, but also is the most common autoimmune disease. And at the present time millions of people suffer from allergies, being constantly dependent on all sorts of risk factors. The very concept of allergy has become very generalizing and includes many different diseases and their symptoms. Everyone knows about the manifestations of an allergy. If a person begins to sneeze and cough, and while it is hard to breathe with incomprehensible spots that means he/she has a classic allergy in a rather severe form. Each of these factors significantly prevents from living, but if you consider that they can be generalized to a threatening state with the prospect of a lethal outcome, then the picture becomes quite unhappy. But allergies can cause anything – household chemicals and flowering plants, medicines and pets, insect bites and the spirits of a beloved woman, as well as food, dust, mold, dyes with preservatives and even electric current. Moreover, a change in the weather from heat to cold and vice versa may cause an allergic person to rash on the skin – hives.
Medical statistics show: the majority of people who give allergic reactions live in industrial cities and megacities; allergy manifests itself several times less in villages. Deterioration of the environment and the increase of synthetic components in food actively contribute to the onset of the disease. Although people are increasingly consuming all sorts of chemistry, heredity plays a significant role in the risk of getting allergies. The likelihood that the allergic parents and the child will suffer from this disease is almost 100%. But the problem is that allergies can occur at any age and concern people who have never experienced unusual reactions to any factors. In the treatment of allergies, in the first place, you need to identify the cause and try to eliminate it. This is the most important step in the fight against the disease. Having established the harmful factor, the competent expert-allergist will recommend effective treatment of the disease.
Methods to defeat allergies
It is necessary to say that an allergy is a very interesting disease. After all, different people have a completely different allergic reaction to the same stimulus. For example, you can take the animal hair as an irritant. Someone because of this suffers from an itchy rash; others have a runny nose and tears flow, and some people – gastrointestinal disturbances. And in terms of severity and duration, everything is very individual.
As for the allergy, then regardless of its characteristics, there are methods to deal with it. That is, if you follow certain instructions, you can recover much more quickly, and the frequency of relapses will decrease. However, the most important mistake of people with allergies, for dust or pollen, they do not strive to eat right. They believe that once the airways are involved, the diet will not help. But, not everyone knows that there are such products that are classified as highly allergenic. And they are able to initiate cross-immune reactions, which only worsen the state of affairs. Thus, to overcome allergies, you need to follow a hypoallergenic diet. There are other rules that also need to be followed. You must try to abandon chocolate and citrus fruits, say goodbye to natural honey and seafood, forget about whole milk and chicken eggs. Do not give preference to fast food, and eat fruits and vegetables in non-season. At the same time your attention and preference should be given to sour-milk non-fat products, lean meat, and you should include whole-grain cereals and bread in the diet. It is useful to eat fruits and vegetables baked in the oven. And the prepared salads from fresh fruits with vegetables are better to fill using natural sauces, namely yoghurts or olive oil.
