Allergy problems, bronchial asthma, and chronic bronchitis are now the commonly occurring health problem in every part of the world. Those have multi etiological factors like exposure to dust, pollen, secondhand smoke, faulty diet habits, food allergens, chemical irritants (pesticides), temperature intolerance include cold air, emotional factors like extreme emotional arousal such as anger or fear, extreme stress level, etc. Even certain medications can trigger chronic bronchitis and asthma.
Besides the external stimulatory factors, the immune system also plays an important role in manifesting the symptoms of allergy and asthma. There are many things that enter our body that our immune system usually views as harmless. But in a person with allergies, the immune system by mistake looks at these harmless substances known as allergens as a potential threat and starts reacting.
So how we can define those allergic persons whose body immune power reacts vigorously to the harmless substances whereas the same immune power in another nonallergic person does not react. How we can differentiate an allergic person from a non-allergic person. What are the things present in an allergic person that differentiate him from a nonallergic person? The answer is hypersensitivity. One allergic person is more hypersensitive towards certain allergens while a healthy person is not. One allergic person has excessive susceptibility towards some particular allergens which are harmful to that person whereas harmless to the healthy one.
types of allergy
Many health disorders are caused by an allergic reaction. The most commons are given below.
allergic bronchial asthma
It is the common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. It is triggered by various allergens or irritants. In allergic asthma, when the airways come in contact with an allergen, the immune system reacts and releases chemicals. These chemicals cause the muscles around the airways to tighten. Inflammation, swelling, and a buildup of mucus in the airways cause further narrowing.
Allergic rhinitis is an allergic inflammation of the nasal airways. It occurs when an allergen, such as pollen, dust, or animal dander (particles of shed skin and hair) is inhaled by an individual system. It causes sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, swelling and inflammation of the nasal passages, and an increase in mucus production. Many of the same factors that trigger allergic rhinitis can also trigger an allergic bronchial asthma attack.
urticaria or hives
Urticaria (or hives) is a kind of skin rash notable for pale red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives is frequently caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many non-allergic causes. Most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute urticaria) are the result of an allergic trigger.
Atopic dermatitis is a type of skin rash. The term “atopic” refers to a tendency to develop allergy conditions, and the term “dermatitis” means swelling of the skin. Atopic dermatitis is often referred to as eczema, which is a general term for several types of skin inflammation. People who live in cities and/or dry climates may be more likely to get the condition. Atopic dermatitis usually develops in early childhood and continues into the teen years, but it can affect people of all ages.
Allergy treatment option: homeopathic allergen immunotherapy (HAI)
homeopathic allergen immunotherapy (HAI)
Homeopathy modulates the hyperactive immune system to a normal functioning immune system thus gives a long-standing curative effect in allergy. Homeopathy can improve symptoms and reduce the long-term medication needs from any system of medicines:
- Homeopathy oral medicines along with homeopathy nebulizer developed by Dr. Satapathy at Multicare Homeopathy gives immediate effect to control the allergic symptoms in acute conditions.
- Homeopathy can potentially prevent the development of asthma.
- Homeopathy can potentially prevent the development of new allergies to different substances.
- Homeopathy has the potential to help prevent the progression of upper respiratory tract allergic diseases to allergic asthma.
Dr.Rangadhar Satapathy MD(Hom) is a well-experienced globally recognized homeopathic physician treating patients from more than 65 countries and has an excellent track record of a cure rate of more than 92 % in different diseases.
