Find natural remedies for allergies with probiotics.
Fortunately, cutting-edge research reveals that probiotics may be a new way to prevent and remedy allergies.1
If you populate your gut with probiotics, it could be the key to easing your allergy symptoms.
It is important to understand that when the body is working to combat an allergic reaction, from a skin allergy like eczema to something more complex like a food allergy, it is due to something not being right in your body. So your body can’t fight off the allergen with its own defenses, which triggers allergy symptoms.
When we take prescribed medications for allergies, they upset the natural process and PH balance of our immune system. So we will always have to take a drug to alleviate the symptoms from whatever allergy we suffer from. Unfortunately, with all of these allergy medications and creams, all they do is treat the symptoms. But the actual problem in our body that caused the allergic reaction still exists.
That is why it is so important to give your body a break from the toxic pharmaceuticals and instead use natural remedies to relieve allergies. We should watch what we eat, get plenty of pure water and take the natural route to allergy relief. This will provide our body with what it needs to repair itself, to bring it back into balance and fight off the allergy we are suffering from.
Probiotics have been proven effective in the remedy of these allergies. And these are just the specific allergies that have been studied. 1
- Birch pollen allergy in children
- Cedar pollen allergy in adults
- Eczema in infants and children
Did you know that children with allergies actually have different bacteria in their intestines than children without allergies? 2 Remarkably, the differences existed before the onset of the allergies!
For nearly all allergies, especially those to food, probiotics have the following positive effects:
- Improve function of mucosal lining of the intestines
- Hinder growth of pathogenic (bad) bacteria
- Stimulate production of immune enhancing substances
- Direct influence on immune response
The immune system starts in your gut and 80% of your immune function is stored in your gastrointestinal tract (GI). So it’s no wonder that research keeps linking probiotic use to reduced risk of allergies. By populating your gut with the right probiotics, it could be the key to easing your allergy symptoms.
