Causes of allergies
Allergy called changing the body's reaction to exposure to microbes or foreign proteins to substances of different nature, which are called allergens.Allergy is caused by specific changes in the human immune system and its inadequate response to the entry into the body of various substances.Allergies often called a disease of civilization, as it relates primarily to the deteriorating environmental situation.
Symptoms: most unpleasant allergies that she can have a variety of symptoms, also similar to the symptoms of other diseases.Such allergy symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose and cough, it may be caused by a cold.Itching and swelling of the eyelids, watery eyes can be caused by allergies and conjunctivitis.Sudden headache and dizziness may be caused by food poisoning.Another allergy "rewards" have skin itching and rashes on her sudden edema of the face and difficulty in breathing up to asthma attacks.
What's going on?Here are the most frequent manifestations of allergy.
1. Skin rash. names can be heard completely different, but mostly it will be rash or dermatitis.Generally, allergic skin reactions are characterized by redness of the individual parts of the skin and severe itching.Can pour pimples and blisters formed blisters.Skin rash appears as a direct contact with allergens, often chemical origin (such as laundry washing powders) and in reactions to food allergens (rash within half an hour after the meal) and medicines.
2. «Hay Fever» - allergic disease caused by people sensitive to pollen of certain flowers.Main symptoms: conjunctivitis, nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose heavy, frequent shortness of breath asthmatic type, in some cases - a significant increase in body temperature, usually, though not above 39 ° C.Often the "hay fever" - a seasonal disease and passes once finishes flowering time of plants that causes allergy."Hay fever", in addition to the already described symptoms may give cause skin rashes and disorders of the nervous system.Then may appear headache, dizziness, weakness, decreased blood pressure, chills, sweating, insomnia, fatigue.
3. Angioedema. So called periodically upcoming limited swelling of the skin and subcutaneous tissue or mucous membranes caused by the allergen.Angioedema may develop as an allergic reaction to foods and medicines.
4. Asthma. Often asthma attacks occur due to seizure bronchoconstriction or swelling of the mucous membrane.Symptoms of asthma are dyspnea, wheezing, dry, paroxysmal cough.Provoke an attack of allergic asthma can be pollen, house dust, wool and feathers of animals and birds, feed for aquarium fish and more.The problem of allergic asthma, also known as atopic (this means that the attack can commence due to nonspecific stimuli, i.e. allergen) that provocateur attack may be a sharp change in air temperature, air pressure or humidity and sharp smells.Call attack can smell oil or acrylic paint, varnish or acetone, cologne and perfume.Then attack develops quickly and suddenly with intense physical exertion or inhalation of these scents, which may be for the repair or in crowds.Read more about asthma, visit the section on asthma.5. Anaphylaxis is caused most often allergic to medicines, insect bites, certain foods.As traumatic shock and mental origin, characterized by a state of severe weakness and general oppression of the body due primarily disorders of the central nervous and cardiovascular systems.Symptoms of shock is a drop in blood pressure, increased heart rate, a decrease in temperature and transition to shallow breathing.Often the shock is accompanied by loss of consciousness.What to do?If you see yourself in obvious allergic reactions, try to minimize the possibility of contact with allergens.So, if you took the house cat or a dog and you have started a runny nose and conjunctivitis, it is best to give the animal a good hand and not to have other animals.Also, if you find that react to wool and feathers of animals and birds, you'd better get sinteponovye duvets and pillows, as blankets and pillows of down or feathers will contribute to the development and strengthening of allergies."Plus" syntepon in the fact that these blankets and pillows are easily erased in the washing machine.Undesirable in the house woolen carpets and even the carpet, because it can cause allergies villi.
Most allergy sufferers react to house dust.Unfortunately, the dust quickly builds up in our apartments.But if to wipe the surface of furniture with a damp sponge and vacuumed the room 2 times a week, you will greatly reduce the dust in the house.When the vacuum cleaner is desirable to wipe the floor with a damp cloth.Ideally, if you have a vacuum cleaner with water filter, because in this case, the dust settles in water and is not split on microparticles passing through the filter and does not get back to your apartment.
The easiest way to deal with food allergies: you just need to install the products, which our body produces an allergic reaction, and stop using them.The most common allergens are found in milk, fish, crabs, meat animals and poultry, cereals (especially such as wheat and millet, rye and corn, rice and buckwheat), legumes, vegetables and fruits, and nuts.Often, allergic reactions are caused by exotic fruits and citrus, and the most recognized allergic nuts hazelnuts.
Recipes. Traditional medicine recommends allergies:
• there are not too salty bacon;
• drink the infusion of celery (2 tablespoons minced root and infuse for 2 hours in a glass of cold water) on a third cup three times a day before meals;
• drink the infusion of nettle leaves (a tablespoon of nettle insist 1.5-2 hours in a glass of boiling water), half a cup 3 times a day for half an hour before meals;
• drink extract of pomegranate peel (a tablespoon of chopped dried peels of pomegranate in a glass of boiling water, leave for an hour), a tablespoon before each meal;
• drink herbal tea of chamomile (for a third cup before meals) or infusion of inflorescences (a tablespoon of raw material to insist in a glass of boiling water for half an hour) on a tablespoon 3 times a day before meals;
• shower room temperature 2-3 times a day.
prevention of allergy is considered to be a long stay in the country, the best - beach vacation at least one month each year.Very useful sea bathing.The more time you devote to walks and stay in the fresh air, the better.Sports and tourism are also helping to train the body for resistance to external influences.
Doctors are unanimous in saying that one of the major allergic reactions - some failures in the gastrointestinal tract.For example, a person develops goiter due to antibiotics and other drugs, or increases the permeability of the intestinal wall as in peptic ulcer disease.Then the large protein molecule allergens (which normally digested to constituent amino acids and lose their allergenic properties) into the blood, and the human body
begins to respond to the invasion of uninvited strangers different and sometimes excessive reactions from simple hives, itching and runny nose to severe edemaangioedema and shock.During the day a person is faced with about 120 food allergens, often without any harm to health.When overeating, when the allergen enters a lot, with bad digestion, or inflammation of the intestines, dysbiosis, or the presence of parasites in the intestinal tract that secrete poisonous to human waste, the risk of allergy is very high.In short, it all starts with gastrointestinal disease or poor liver function, if it does not perform its cleansing function after suffering a hepatitis, cholecystitis, or giardiasis.
Giardiasis - a protozoan liver damage, which often occurs with no obvious symptoms, although they can meet a variety of digestive disorders and pain in his right side.But over time, the protective function of the liver is reduced, which decreases the blood and leads to slagging the whole organism.
reason allergies can be, and renal insufficiency when the kidneys can not cope with their excretory function.
In infancy allergies often develop at too early termination of breastfeeding and transition to replacement feeding.To it can join and enzyme deficiency, a young child has not had time to form and establish a mechanism of assimilation of adult food, and he was already beginning to lure rich.Physicians recognize that reveal a similar enzymatic deficiency is practically difficult and impossible.All of them together (though totally independent from each other) is added, which is much more common than the notorious enzyme deficiency, which almost always goes by itself, cause allergies, rather pseudoallergy children - as well as in adults, -is trivial dysbiosis.
The thing is constant self-poisoning of the body mass of harmful substances produced by pathogenic bacteria, which blocked intestine.These bacteria produce histamine, which causes a variety of inflammatory symptoms.Who among children and adults have never in my life had a cold?And who are not prescribed antibiotics?After such a treat goiter and a child and an adult is almost guaranteed.But he revealed elementary - using analysis of feces (stool culture).And he is treated very simply - via intestinal antiseptics new generation and selectively destroy harmful flora while retaining useful or bifidopreparaty capsules.Usually bifidobacteria practically completely digested in the stomach, they superpoleznost - nothing more than a publicity stunt.Undoubtedly, they play a positive role in maintaining a healthy gut flora, but bacteriosis hardly cope.
Unfortunately, heredity, genetic structure - one of the most important factors in the possible development of allergies.If one of the parents suffered from hay fever, asthma, eczema, food allergies, the probability of occurrence of these or other allergic reactions in children is very high.
cause of allergies in children may be a failure to comply with his mother's diet during pregnancy.Doctors advise women who are pregnant, refrain from classical allergens (chocolate, citrus fruits, coffee) to the fetus is not "picked up" from the mother's antibodies and the baby subsequently had no problems.But not all mothers are capable of nine months to sacrifice their interests and habits for the sake of children's health.Therefore, if the mother during pregnancy often drank coffee, ate eggs and oranges, the child is found allergic to these foods.If they are treated for any disease, the antibodies to this medication (eg, antibiotics) are transferred to the fetus.Therefore, women advised to be as careful not to become too cold, do not drink or smoke, or a child, except for allergies will be a whole bunch of diseases, including the most severe (heart disease, central nervous system and various malformations).Next possible cause of allergies in children and adults - this fungus.They act as infectious allergen and also love to settle in the intestines, releasing a lot of toxic substances.They are also easily detected by the analysis on a dysbacteriosis.
Fungi are dangerous and when they are in the intestine, where they are only
decorate nails or infest dandruff.All this leads to an increase in total
sensitivity of the organism to various substances.
final reason that causes of allergy - a bad allergic environment around us.The water we drink, the air we breathe, the foods that we eat on a daily basis the soil on which we walk - everything is oversaturated with chemicals.Also residues fertilizer products contain various nutritional supplements, preservatives, taste improvers.There is nothing to talk about household chemicals or harmful effects of reactive materials in various industries.It is not uncommon occurrence of allergies in a professional hairdressers to formulations used by them, the employees of rubber and chemical factories producing fertilizers or detergents, tires.A lot of allergy sufferers in the Donbass, Kuzbass coal and other areas in towns and cities with enterprises, polluting the air and water bodies by industrial emissions.
in Saratov even cockroaches fled the city due to poor environmental conditions.Much depends on your eating habits.Thus, poor in vitamins, trace elements and plant fiber with a high content of semi-finished and
