Allergy is a reaction of our immune system and people who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one thing. These reactions occur to environmental substances known as allergens; and are acquired, predictable and rapid.
Dr. S.P.S. Bakshi, CMD Bakson Group says that allergy due to external trigger factors is actually exogenic but the root cause of all such ailments is endogenic or hereditary.
Inflammation is characterised by excessive activation of certain white blood cells in our body called mast cells and basophils, by a type of antibody known as IgE, resulting in an extreme inflammatory response.
Inflammatory processes may affect the skin, resulting in eczema, urticaria, acne, psoriasis, alopecia or in case of respiratory sysem - tonsillitis, sinusitis, recurrent sneezing, bronchitis and even asthma.
Food allergies include inflammation along the digestive tract and this may be in the form of mouth ulcers, gastric ulcers, peptic ulcers or colitis, with irregular bowel habits. The common symptoms are pain, redness, dryness and swelling. According to Dr. Bakshi, homoeopathic treatment, which boosts immunity and treats from within, is the answer.
All medicines are to be taken under the guidance of a Registered Homoeopathic Medical Practitioner.
