Allergies Can Begin In The Colon
Close to half of the world’s population suffers from some type of allergies. You can be allergic to anything from the medications you take, food, insects, molds, pollens and pets. But, no matter what the cause, allergies have become a major medical problem.
The immune system is the body’s army; it works to fight off infections, viruses, bacteria and other potential problems. When an allergen enters the body, the immune system sees it as a danger and attacks with antibodies. These antibodies result in sneezing, itchy eyes, congestion and other symptoms.
There are numerous types of medications to treat allergies, most of which are just quick fixes and do nothing to correct the cause. Modern medicine may help relieve the symptoms, but they generally only suppress the immune system so that the it can’t protect the body. The body is literally left defenseless against the allergens and toxins build up in the body.
The overload of toxins ends up in the colon. The colon is the bodies’ waste eliminator; it cleanses the body of toxic chemicals and waste products to keep it healthy. However, since constipation is often a symptom of allergies, the toxic waste just sits in the colon stagnating.
The high accumulation of waste ferments and decays and much of it hardens and becomes permanently trapped. Toxins from the rotting matter are then absorbed back into the bloodstream and carried back to healthy cells, tissues and organs. This in turn aggravates the allergy symptoms even more and eventually causes serious damage to the entire body.
Recent scientific research has determined that over 50% of the bodies’ immune system is located in the colon. Many of the serious and sometimes fatal health problems such as heart disease, liver and kidney disease often originate from an unhealthy colon!
Keeping your colon healthy is one of the most important things that you can do to maintain good health. When the colon is healthy it can easily eliminate the poisonous toxins that we come in contact with on a daily basis. But, when the colon becomes lined with toxic waste it’s no longer able to eliminate waste properly.
Most allergic reactions are triggered when the immune system has a weakness. It mistakenly sees any foreign object entering the body as harmful and retaliates. A healthy colon helps keep the immune system working correctly and can vanish or at the very least lessen allergic reactions.
Allergies can often just suddenly develop, you may suffer allergic reactions to something you’ve eaten or been in contact with all of your life. This sudden response from your immune system could be an indicator of its distressed state.
More and more research is being done that links colon health to over all body health. Colon cleansing is becoming a more popular way to not only get the body working properly again, but to lessen and even reduce some medical problems such as allergies.
While medication can help alleviate the symptoms of allergies, a healthy colon is the only way to attack the problem at its source. Although all allergies don’t originate from the colon, a big majority of them do. For many, colon cleansing is the only way to achieve relief from allergies.
