Allergies

Allergies that won’t last forever

Allergies is a common disease for people of all genders and ages. Everyone wants to know whether allergies require drugs. Is there any way to solve the problem at the cause? What is the answer? Let’s find out together.


Allergies is a disease where the body will have a sensitive reaction to an allergen, which causes chronic inflammation to the lining of body organs, such as skin, nasal septum, respiratory mucosa, or gastrointestinal mucosa. There are 2 types of allergens, which are weather and environment allergens, such as house mites, cockroaches, dog hair, grass pollen, or fungus; and food allergens, such as cow milk, soy milk, eggs, seafood, or wheat flour. According to the Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Association of Thailand, the rate of Thai children with allergies is as high as 30 percent, and with adults, about 20 percent. At present, there are 3-4 more times the number of allergy patients than there were 10 years ago.


The symptoms of allergies are different in each individual, which are:

  • Allergies in the airway, which are nasal congestion, clear mucus, sneezing, coughing, chest tightness, and asthma. Some people have seasonal allergies. Some people have allergies for a whole year.

  • Allergies through the skin, which are rash, erythema, and inflammation. It can occur in 2 cases, which are (1) Contact with external substance, such as detergent allergies or dishwashing liquid allergies; and (2) Internal in which the body will accumulate some stimulants which appear through the skin, such as seafood allergies. When the seafood makes contact with the intestinal mucosa, it causes diarrhea. Some people will have skin rashes, headache, become anxious, or tightened muscles.

  • Digestive tract allergies is an allergy that comes from food or food contamination (food allergy). The patients will vomit, feel queasy, have diarrhea, swollen mouth, stomachache, or flatulence. Symptoms in the respiratory tract may occur, such as asthma, weather allergy, and skin allergy, like rashes or hives. Foods that are common causes of allergies are cow milk, eggs, peanuts, seafood, some types of vegetables and fruits, monosodium glutamate, preservatives, flavors, and coloring.

According to the aforementioned information, it can be said that allergies that happens in the respiratory tract occur in a particular area. As for food, it is not a common allergy. There are food allergies that cause a slow reaction and sensitivity to nutrients. Some people can have symptoms after a meal 2-3 days later. There are many components that cause allergies, such as color substances, smell, or essential oil. Some people might not be allergic to the substances in food but are allergic to the contamination of the food, such as formalin, insecticides, or antibiotics that remain in shrimp or fish in the pond.


When the body contacts an allergen, there are 2 types of inflammation reactions, which are:

  • IgE, which is a sudden allergy that will cause a severe and fast reaction, such as drug allergy or food allergy.

  • IgG, which is a slow allergy. Sometimes, after 2 days from having a meal. The symptoms may include fatigue, headache, and skin rash. Some people need to refrain from bread, rice, butter, milk, and eggs. The symptoms will get better after a while. The allergies in small children and adolescents are often related to food.


The important factor that stimulates allergies is heredity. If a father or mother has allergies, the children will have a chance of having allergies. Other factors are Environment, such as air pollution, food, and chemicals; and Living behavior, such as eating, sleeping, exercising, working, and stress.


Allergy treatment by general medicine emphasizes the use of medication, steroids, and immunosuppressive agents, which is considered to be late treatment and medication needed in the long term. As for steroids, they have side effects when used for a long time. There is also finding the allergen to avoid allergic things, and vaccinations that are made from the diluted allergen. However, it takes time for the treatment.



Integrative medicine treatment corrects the cause of disease together with adjusting the immune system of the body.

  • Diet therapy helps to reduce the inflammation of the body. In terms of naturopathy medicine, natural nutrients are popularly used. For example: Omega fatty acid, curcumin extract from turmeric, and cassumunar ginger extract, which can restrain the inflammation from allergies with less side effects than the use of steroid anti-inflammatory drugs.

  • Checking IgG immunity for food intolerance When finding the allergies and refraining from allergic foods, the allergy symptoms will completely stop without having to take antihistamine.

  • Reducing factors that affect the allergies, especially physical and mentally stress. Stress will cause adrenal fatigue and stimulate inflammation in the body. Many people get better when they adjust their way of life. Refrain from alcohol, smoking, and nightlife. Turn to meditation.

  • Allergostop is a vaccine that reduces allergies and stops the inflammation process naturally by extracting anti-bodies from the body to make vaccines and injecting them into the body in order to create white blood cells for resistance. The anti-body is extracted once to make at least 25 vaccine needles to create natural immunity.

  • Adjusting the new immune system and correction at the source, which is the thymus gland that acts as training the T cell immune system to recognize diseases, including knowing the functions in complicated systems. Disorders of the thymus gland will cause the immune system to go haywire. Therefore, we must correct at the cause by recovering the thymus gland, which can make the allergies disappear.


Treatment is necessary for allergies. However, medication might not be the last answer. If we find the cause and correct the right spot, you have the chance of being free from allergies or at least changing the way of self-care by not depending on medication, and becoming healthy with no side effects.
