Are Allergies Making you Sick?

Are Allergies Making you Sick?

Allergies are more than just a nuisance. You may not think a sneezy, runny nose is anything to worry about, but allergy symptoms are an indicator of an underlying problem and should not be ignored.

Although respiratory discomfort is the most obvious indicator of an allergic reaction, allergies can cause symptoms throughout the body. Food allergens can trigger gastrointestinal symptoms such as canker sores, gastritis, and diarrhea. Recurrent or chronic urinary tract infections, childhood ear infections, upper respiratory infections, and yeast infections commonly have an allergic basis. Asthma is caused by underlying allergies, as well. Other serious conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome, can be exacerbated by allergies, especially allergies to foods.

Not only do allergies contribute to poor health; they can make you feel miserable and negatively affect your quality of life. Allergies also contribute to days missed at work and increased healthcare costs.  Allergies can begin at any age, including after childbirth and in midlife.

ALLERGIES INCREASE INFLAMMATION

Due to the amount of inflammation and stress placed on the body and your immune system, if you choose to not treat your allergies, your risk for serious illness is increased. With inflammation, your immune system becomes overburdened, and the inflammatory triggers are sent through your bloodstream where they affect nerves, organs, connective tissues, joints, and muscles. Chronic inflammation can slowly destroy your organs and the ability to function optimally. Meanwhile, headaches, migraines, depression, anxiety and memory problems can occur if inflammation and swelling affect the brain.

ALLERGIES CAN CAUSE ADRENAL FATIGUE 

People with food and environmental allergies commonly have weak adrenal function, also known as adrenal fatigue. Most allergies involve the release of histamine and other pro-inflammatory substances. Cortisol, one of the primary hormones produced by the adrenal glands, is a strong anti-inflammatory hormone. The more histamine that is released, the more cortisol it takes to control the inflammatory response and the harder the adrenal glands have to work to produce more cortisol. The harder they have to work, the more fatigued they become.

ALLERGIES LEAD TO POOR SLEEP

Insomnia is common in people with hay fever and allergies, for obvious reasons. When you have a sinus headache, a stuffed up nose and can’t breathe, it can be difficult to sleep. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that people with allergic rhinitis from hay fever and other types of allergies are more than twice as likely to suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia. Lack of adequate, sound sleep can lead to irritability, weight gain, and decreased cognitive function.

NATURAL TREATMENT

Unless your allergies are identified and treated, chronic health problems can result. Problems ranging from sinus infections, skin disorders, asthma and migraine headaches can finally begin to improve when allergies are identified and treated.

Historically, treating allergies has required weekly visits to the doctor for a shot, followed by a waiting period to make sure there is no reaction. That’s not the case anymore. With allergy drops, treatment is easier than ever. By placing a few drops under the tongue each day, your body will build up antibodies to help fight off the allergens naturally. You can do this from the comfort of your own home or take them on the go. No office visit or wait time.

If you’re constantly dealing with allergy symptoms, then it might be time for a change. Let us help.  Contact a wellness consultant for a complimentary consultation at 281-698-8698 to find out how you can fix your allergies for good.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
