An allergy occurs when the immune system over reacts to a substance that is normally considered harmless. The most common forms of allergic reactions are skin and nasal irritations (itchy eyes, runny nose) and gastrointestinal disturbances (gas, bloating, diarrhea).
Some skin conditions (like eczema or psoriasis) can be aggravated when exposed to certain allergens. Common allergies that aggravate these types of skin issues are inflammatory foods such as sugar, dairy and wheat.
The naturopathic Doctors at Health Momentum can work with you in identifying which allergens you are most sensitive to and what nutrition plan would benefit your individual needs. The naturopathic treatment approach involves reducing inflammatory reactions and histamine release using dietary modifications along with immune enhancing vitamins and herbs.
