Allergy is increasing because we are seeing the result of a progressive over-burdening of our defence mechanisms.
We can do much to increase the effective functioning of our detoxification and immune functions and to lower exposure to and protect against the effects of undesirable substances, naturally.
For example in cases where the allergen is mainly an inhaled substance, especially if this a volatile (possibly petrocarbon based) substance, protection is often possible by mens of supplementation with anti-oxidants such as beta carotene (for Vitamin A) and vitamins C and E in particular. Also frequently helpful in such cases are amino acids such as cysteine and methionine and minerals such as selenium.
A general supportive programme combining detoxification, overall lifestyle reform for health enhancement, sound nutrition and the help of herbal, homoeopathic and acupuncture methods as needed, offers the safest key to allergy elimination.
