There are 2 types of allergic reactions… 

  • IMMEDIATE REACTION – IgE:  This occurs within minutes after exposure.  Most common allergens are: dander, shellfish, nuts, bee stings, mold & pollen.

  • DELAYED REACTION – IgG: Appearing 24-72 hours after exposure, they’re difficult to discover. Most commonly from dairy, cigarette smoke, wheat, eggs & chemicals (in food, air, hygiene / cleaning products, clothing & water).  This type of allergen has long term affects on the body.

Med side effects – worse than the allergies?

Each allergy stricken individual should concider the negative side effects of medication.  Often times, the side effects are worse than the original symptoms.   Here are some examples.

  • ANTIHISAMINES:  insomnia, drowsiness, tremors, nervousness, irritability, dry mouth, constipation, urinary retention, rapid heartbeat, blurred vision
  • DECONGESTANTS:  restlessness, irritability, insomnia
  • STEROIDAL INHALANTS: glucocorticoid residue may supress immune defenses in mouth & throat, causing thrush due to yeast overgrowth, swallowed inhalant residues may be absorbed into bloodstream causing the same complications that occur when steroid drugs are taken orally
  • ALLERGY SHOTS: Dilluted allergens are shot into the bloodstream in hopes that the body will ‘learn’ to accept them  and stop producing antibodies in response to their presence.
  • SURGERY: A cutting instrument is thrust up the nasal cavities to remove excess bone, tissue and mucosal buildup.
