Studies have shown that about 7 million Canadians suffer from allergies or allergic illness, and the number is steadily growing.
Allergic reactions are the immune system overreacting to allergens — for example, food, pollen, grass, weeds, dander, etc. — that trigger symptoms such as sneezing, wheezing, runny eyes, stuffy nose, coughing, and itching. Asthma, hives, hay fever, seasonal allergies, and eczema are all examples of allergy disorders.
Contrary to what many people think, allergens aren’t the cause of allergic reactions or symptoms. They are simply triggers. Allergic reactions are usually due to an imbalance in the body, such as intestinal disorders, too many toxins in the body, a weak and toxic liver, a high acidic pH, and poor diet.
In light of the above information as to what are the root causes of your reactions, here are several things you can do to lessen your allergic reactions:
There are effective alternatives to medication for treating allergy symptoms. One such remedy is homeopathic, called Pascallerg, by Pascoe. Pasallerg has proven effective for decades in treating the following allergy symptoms: hay fever, asthma, allergic skin reactions, and food intolerances. It has no negative side effects and is safe for all ages above 1 year old.
Pascallerg is effective in preventing and treating seasonal allergies but also other allergies. It can be taken preventatively up to three times a day. For acute relief it can be taken up to 12 times daily.
