How To Help Allergies - 5 Things You Can Do Today
Posted on April 18th 2019 by Hollie Pita-Carr
With allergies becoming increasingly common and millions of people suffering, it’s becoming more important than ever to know how to help allergies.
Allergy Awareness Week, from Monday 23rd until 29th April 2019, aims to raise awareness of all allergic conditions, including food, respiratory, skin, and children’s allergies.
This article also looks at the causes and what can be done―how to help allergies― with five practical suggestions to manage and even stop allergic reactions.
Allergic Reactions are Increasing
It is thought that one in four people in the UK will suffer from allergies at some point in their lives, and numbers are increasing year on year.
An allergy is the body’s reaction to a particular food or substance. Some of the common allergens, that can cause allergic reactions in some people, include:
Foods, such as nuts, gluten, shellfish, cow’s milk, and eggs
Tree pollen and grass (known as hayfever)
Animals (fur, skin or hair)
Medication, including aspirin, ibuprofen, and some types of antibiotics
Household chemicals, including detergents and hair dyes
Mold, which can be breathed in as tiny particles into the air.
Whilst these substances may not be harmful to people who do not have a reaction to them, they can affect everyday activities to those that suffer from allergic reactions.
What Causes an Allergic Reaction?
Allergic reactions occur when cells in the immune system interpret a substance as harmful, overact and release histamine. It is your immune system that gives you the symptoms, not the substance itself.
This is an important consideration when it comes to how to help allergies, as it reveals the positive intention of your body to try and clear the substance it has misinterpreted as a dangerous threat.
Once we realize that the allergic reaction comes from within, not from something external to us, it gives us the opportunity to address this and change from within, which is where Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) can be so empowering.
How to Help Allergies: What Can be Done?
1. Stay away:
The National Health Service advises that “in many cases, the most effective way of managing an allergy is to avoid the allergen that causes the reaction whenever possible.” However, this isn’t always possible.
Medications are available to help control symptoms, including:
Antihistamines that can be taken before exposure, or as soon as you start to notice a reaction
Decongestants for unblocking sinuses for a short-term period
Lotions and creams to moisturize and reduce skin itching and redness
Steroids to help reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling
3. Follow your gut:
The immune system and gut are closely linked with up to 80% of your immune system residing in your digestive tract. Therefore food really can be used as medicine.
Immunotherapy can be used with very severe allergies, which involves building up exposure to an allergen in a controlled way over a long time period.
5. Rapid Transformational Therapy – can it help?
The immune system is run by the subconscious, which is why Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) can be so effective. Using hypnosis we are able to communicate directly with our
subconscious and instruct it, or re-programme it, for powerful permanent change.
We operate from our mighty subconscious 95% of the time and once we learn how to work with it, through RTT, we can use the power of the subconscious mind to command our cells and systems as to what we want them to do.
RTT addresses the underlying cause of any issue, including looking into the role, purpose, function, and intention. This understanding has liberating transformative power. Command Cell Therapy and the Healing Vortex are just two of the many transformational tools of RTT, which can be used to help the body learn more appropriate responses to allergens and not to overreact to them anymore.
If you would like to see a real-life example of how powerful this approach can be, this is a testimonial Kasia Weglarz received from one of her RTT clients:
Real-life case study of RTT for allergies:
I went to my first RTT session with Kasia a little over a month ago for an enormous list of food allergies and asthma. RTT was a last-ditch resort and I wasn't really thinking it would be able to do anything for me, but I had already run through my options: medications, allergy specialists, acupuncture, etc. I had become so allergic to peanuts that I couldn't be in the same room as someone eating peanuts without a reaction and I had a myriad of other food allergies including anaphylaxis to apples and severe allergic reactions to anything containing celery, carrots or sesame. My asthma had also kicked in badly and I was using my emergency inhaler six times a day.
Prior to my RTT session, I had heard of muscle testing with allergies. I tested myself by having my dad apply pressure to my left arm while I held the allergen in my right hand. Sure enough, every food I had allergic reactions to, my arm would fall limp when the slightest amount of pressure was applied to it.
Two weeks after my RTT session, I had my dad try the test again with an apple in my hand and I was able to resist the pressure as he pushed down. I looked at him and smiled and said: "I think I'm going to go for it." Mind you, the last time I had bitten into an apple I had ended up in the ER three years prior from anaphylaxis.
I bit into the apple and relished the crunch, aroma, and flavor I had missed for so long. I took another bite. My lips didn't tingle, my tongue didn't swell and I didn't get hives. There was no allergic reaction! I celebrated by baking apple cake, eating apples and drinking hard cider.
I continued to try the foods I had been allergic to and to my delight, I didn't have a single reaction. I haven't needed my inhaler for asthma since I left her office a month ago. I have not tried peanuts yet, but I have been able to sit around people while they eat them without getting hives or tingly lips. I have also gone out for Chinese and Indian food which I hadn't done in years. I feel like I have a new lease on life. I know that all of this may sound too good to be true, but I am proof that RTT can get rid of your allergies. Kasia helped me discover that your life can be whatever you make it. Don't waste another day of your life suffering. Thank you, Kasia, for helping me overcome the blockages in my life that were making me so sick!
