Here are some talking points on the subject of allergies—how to eliminate sources of allergens in our households and foods, and how to best treat using a more holistic approach:

Allergic Reactions

When exposed to an allergen, the body triggers the immune system to go into action. The immune system cells, known as “mast cells,” release a substance called histamine that attaches to receptors in blood vessels causing them to enlarge. Histamine also binds to other receptors causing redness, swelling, itching and changes in secretion.
