Tips to Naturally Relieve Allergies
The information below on how to relieve allergies naturally was recently brought to my attention on a radio show and reiterated on bodyecology.com. Please read on.
The Truth about Allergies
- Allergies do not flare up in your sinuses, but in fact facilitate themselves in your stomach.
- Modern day hyper-vigilance about germs and bacteria may actually cause more allergies to develop by compromising “good bacteria” systems in body
- When your inner “good bacteria” are out of balance your intestines aren’t teeming with beneficial bacteria and yeast (microflora) thus weakening your immune system.
- Allergies are likely to manifest themselves in the bodies of those with weakened immune systems.
Treat Allergies Naturally with a Probiotic
- Cutting-edge research reveals that probiotics may be a new way to prevent and remedy allergies.
- Probiotics stimulate production of immune enhancing substances and hinder growth of pathogenic (bad) bacteria
- This direct influence on immune response prohibits the manifestation of allergens and other autoimmune responses.
- Allergic symptoms subside within 3-4 weeks after supplementing a probiotic into diet
5 Natural Probiotic Treatments
Did you know there are tens of billions of bacteria per serving of yogurt? When making this dairy-aisle favorite, producers add cultures of bacteria after milk has been pasteurized, to ensure the bacteria survives.
Made by fermenting goat, cow or sheep’s milk with kefir “grains,” this drink contains ten to 20 different types of bacteria.
Spicy and sour, this traditional Korean side dish is made by fermenting cabbage, cucumber or radish. Since it’s mostly pickled vegetables, kimchi is a great low-calorie source of fiber.
Kombucha is a slightly sweet and fizzy liquid that results when sweet black tea is fermented with a mushroom-like colony of bacteria called a “scoby.”
Used to top sausages or as a side dish, this condiment is made from fermented cabbage. Keep in mind, not all supermarket sauerkrauts will have beneficial bacteria. Check if the sauerkraut has been pasteurized because this process will destroy probiotics.
