Hay fever occurs when a person’s immune system reacts to proteins in the environment that are harmless for most people, such as house dust mites, pets, pollens, other insects and/or moulds.
An allergic reaction involves a complex interplay within the immune system. The result is an inflammatory response with localized and systemic symptoms.
The goal of treatment is to increase tolerance to the allergens. Current medical approaches focus on removal of the allergens and symptom relief. My goal is to not just aid in symptom relief but to focus on correcting the underlying processes. These may involve the immune system, intestinal health, correcting the balance of good gut flora, and supporting digestion.
