October 2009 Newsletter
In this issue:
This is a huge topic and we have worked with many allergic people over the years, what has become clear is allergic disease states are a major worldwide problem. We have gathered a lot of information for this issue, so do read on, our special offer this month will give allergy suffers the chance to accurately assess those things in the home and pantry that are causing the problem, hope you find this helpful.
In developed nations, allergy is the most common cause of chronic illness, and in underdeveloped nations, the prevalence of allergy and asthma continues to increase.
Within our arsenal of treatment options are a range of herbs and nutrients that can make a big difference but of course it is always nice to try and get to the cause. Is the immune system weak or dysfunctional due to something missing in our diet or are we bombarded with so many "foreign elements" these days that our poor old immune system doesn't know what it should let in and what it should keep out?
Do supplements benefit asthmatic children?
Could Expectant Mums Reduce Infant Allergy with Fish Oils?
Here is another small study linking the intake of omega-3 with childhood allergy incidence.
Conclusion: Omega-3 supplementation in pregnancy and lactation can decrease the risk of food allergy and IgE-associated eczema during the first year of life in infants with a family history of allergic disease.
Immune Effects of Herbs, Phytochemicals and Vitamins
There are numerous studies all confirming that basic nutrients such as Vitamins A, C, D and E and food elements including fish oils, antioxidants and bioflavonoids all can reduce the incidence of allergies significantly so when it comes to diet, once again most of us could be doing it better.A significant number of complementary and alternative medicines (CAMs) have been shown to have a positive therapeutic effect on allergy and immunology. Below are just a few that we use and are available in a variety of supplements.
Curcumin(from Turmeric), Resveratrol(from red wine), Perilla Seeds, Bromelain(an enzyme from Pineapple) and Quercetin(an exciting bioflavonoid) all demonstrate an ability to affect changes right at the beginning of the bodies allergy response, this results in inflammatory mediator changes that lessen and in some case neutralise an allergic response.
How would you like to BE ALLERGY FREE?
To assist those of you who have any of the common(or not so common) allergy issues we are happy to announce a new service that we know will make a big difference.
Bio-Compatible testing through an Australian company who have been doing Allergy testing for over 20 years offers a comprehensive test using a small hair sample - over 360 popular NZ food and household items are tested - and importantly, the results for you include a list of foods that you CAN EAT!
DO YOU SUFFER FROM OR HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH:
Modern electronic equipment is used and works from a hair sample.
The test is safe, accurate and has no harmful side effects.
Medications will not affect this test. Colours, perms or medications do not affect the testing.
Read some of the comments from satisfied customers:
One patient reported that fourteen and a half years of headaches and migraines disappeared after eliminating broccoli and other allergies.
A lady who had blocked sinuses and had been coughing for over 50 years was cured once she stopped eating wheat bran. Her intolerance to perfumes also disappeared.
50 years of asthma was gone after only 6 weeks on this programme. This lady reports that she can now run on the beach for the first time in her life.
A young boy’s badly inflamed tonsils and adenoids cleared once off paw paw and bananas.
A delighted father reported his A.D.D. child had gone from the bottom to top of the class, was sleeping and eating well and her behavioural problems had disappeared only six weeks into this programme.
Asthma, bloating, irritable bowel, nausea and migraines all cleared once off allergic foods. Patient also reported she was off all medications and had lost 9kg in weight.
A lady reported that her sinus and middle ear infections all cleared up when she removed olive oil, rice bubbles, mandarins, garlic, olives, chicken, baked beans and eye shadow.
Arthritis was caused by pasta, garlic, pork, ham, milk, olive oil, chicken, and milk. His doctor took him off cortisone after 6 weeks on this programme.
Acne Rosacea cleared by removing Vegemite, potato, Broccoli, chocolate and dairy products.
Stomach pains and constipation from eating milk, soy milk and sunflower oil.
Irritable bowel ,sinus, headache and digestion cleared by removing dairy, bread, and all seafood.
Hives, sinus, rashes cleared once off shellfish, wheat, green tea and coffee.
Irritable bowel, bloating and digestive problems were around 80% better in 2 weeks.
BABY...continual crying and poor sleeping all cleared in a few days once on the programme.
So, I guess you get the idea and if you don't have any allergy issues yourself I am sure you know someone who does.
As Dennis from Be Allergy Free says, "there is no such thing as a bad food. Every thing we put on our skin and in our mouths has the potential for good or harm. This includes medications, supplements, personal care products and of course food and drink."
If this test sounds like something you could benefit from, all you have to do is let us know you would like the test and we can arrange it, even for those of you from out of town - or abroad, we can organise this test that could change your life completely.
The Be Allergy Free hair analysis information will be available from the website in future but for now contact us.
As an introduction our October Special will get you started on the right track for a special price, see at the bottom of the page.
