Allergies, What are they and how to combat them?

Allergies, What are they and how to combat them?

Sneezing, Eye irritation, nasal discharge, rashes and itchy skin; are just some of the symptoms you have to live everyday allergic. But let's see why they occur and are Allergies.


Allergy is an overreaction (known hypersensitivity) immune, an allergen. Namely, any substance capable of initiating a response of this type.

This reaction occurs only in susceptible individuals, therefore it may be an "allergen" for one, it will not be for another. This substance can be ingested, inhale the touch, giving a characteristic response in each person. It should be noted that allergens are not harmful in itself.

Among the most common are: Poland, powder, mold, animal hair, insect bites, food, drugs and Dust Mites (microorganisms, living in mattresses, blankets, plush toys, curtains and carpets, which feed desquamated cells whose excrement generate skin allergies).


How are allergies acquire?

Research showed that two factors add. One is the genetic predisposition (genes that predispose to this situation), and the other factor is the environmental (the place and the conditions that surround us).

Why hypersensitivity occurs?

Considering the above two factors, we see that our immune system, responsible for combating germs, but occasionally responds to the allergen erroneously considering an attacker more, generating an overreaction.

What cause?

As we saw at the beginning, allergies can cause nasal congestion, sneezing, cough, itch, sarpullidos, edema (swelling) asthma or even in some cases. Diarrhea may also occur, headache, colic, etc..

While symptoms vary greatly from case to case, are generally not serious, although some will cause, and mainly caused by drugs, a reaction called "anaphylaxis" which can be lethal occurs, if not controlled in time.

Symptoms vary. Although allergies can make you feel bad, they generally are not lethal. However, a severe reaction called anaphylaxis it can be.

How are they diagnosed?

Several methods, but inside we have the most used skin tests and laboratory.

The first method involves injecting on very small amounts of potential allergens skin and see how he reacts to it after a while. The more red and swollen area is put, greater the body's response to that substance.

Regarding the laboratory seek IgE antibodies (Immuno-globulin E), Total IgE levels, eosinophils, General Immunoglobulin and etc.. All markers of allergic phenomena.

How are they treated?

Given the variety of presentation, treatments are equally varied in the type and application of the same. Mainly used antihistamines and corticosteroids, which can be administered orally, injection, colirios, creams, etc.; according to the area and extent of reaction.

Therapies were also incorporated with vaccines (inmunoterapia), which is a long-term treatment. The result is highly variable from one person to another, and perseverance needed to efficiently evaluate the same.

Revitalization, a complement and alternative to conventional therapy

At Posada del Qenti, with a group of interdisciplinary professionals and counting with more than 15 years of experience, Biological Revitalization Switzerland offer as an adjunct to conventional therapy. Even in some cases it becomes a serious alternative, natural and integral to these cases.
