Ayurveda is an Ancient Indian medicine that is over 5,000 years old. This ancient medicine uncovers the root cause of disease and focuses on the preservation of health. Ayurveda is an individualized medicine and treatments vary from person to person. The following are some of the Top 5 Causes of Allergies seen in our clinic (Anu Ayurveda Health Center).
1. Over-active Immune System – The immune system becomes hypersensitive to allergens in the environment. The reaction would start to get aggravated when exposed to chemicals, dust, or other environmental triggers (smell, touch).
2. Prolonged Untreated Indigestion – The body would start to create excess mucous or inflammation. This reaction could start first thing in the morning with or without food or after meals.
3. Improper Diet – Consisting of dairy, ice cream, and heavy food. This would cause excess mucous secretions directly after food that may last for a few minutes or hours after consumption.
Its important to avoid the causative factors when trying to reduce allergy symptoms. Understanding what time of day the symptoms are worse or what seems to trigger them are very important clues to determine how to treat allergic reactions to get to the root cause of the problem. Dietary choices are sometimes the easiest ways to address allergies. Try adding spices that normalize your immune system response and increase your digestion into your diet such as turmeric, ginger, and cumin.
