I never had allergies growing up. I basically lived outside all spring and summer and never thought twice before dashing outside to play soccer or football with my friends. My curfew was when the street lights turned on and I didn't have a care in the world, especially when it came to allergies.
Things are different now, especially with the amount of people who deal with allergies. And this issue isn't just affecting adults. Kids are in the allergy group just the same. It seems like the allergy issue is out of control.
It's hard to say. There are a lot more chemicals in our food, our water has more additives in it and I know that has something to do with it. The bottom line though is that we can't get away from whatever gives us allergies. It is everywhere and in everything around us so we are going to need a good defense. And that's where essential oils come in.
Combinations of certain essential oils have been proven to act as histamine antagonists or antihistamines. Allergies spring up from a sensitivity to certain microscopic components in our surroundings so it only fits that something microscopic is needed to fight it. Essential Oils are that weapon.
Essential oils react with our bodies at the cellular level. Combinations of essential oils interact with the delicate receptors that are at the root of all allergy problems. Essential oils can block our body's receptor sites from the harmful organisms that cause so many allergic reactions.
Allergies and How They Affect Your Immune System
Allergies are manifest in numerous ways. Whether you are sneezing, coughing or clawing your itchy eyes out, it's the same. Your immune system is reacting to its surroundings and doing its best to protect you against harmless micro-organisms and it is succeeding. But when it comes to allergies your immune system is working overtime when it shouldn't be. This is a problem and that is why allergies are so annoying.
How To Strengthen Your Immune System
In the case of allergies, the immune system is functioning completely fine. But that integral body system needs all the help it can get. Essential oils have proven to be a fantastic help to every system in our body. They have been proven to heighten your body's ability to fight viruses, bacteria and most everything else you may come into contact with. They are a fantastic help in my life and the life of my family and can be in yours too.
