More Than Meets The Eye

Most people don't realize the extent of the harm being done to the body by continually subjecting it to an allergen. The obvious warning signs, the itching, swelling, ear infections, etc., whether an immediate reaction or a result of months or even years of consuming this allergen can be looked at as no real threat to the body, but there is more here than meets the eye.

Take a Dairy Allergy for instance. As you consume dairy products your body attempts to digest the proteins, but it is unable to fully digest them. This in tern causes these undigested proteins to reach your blood stream, where your body interprets them as foreign bodies invading your body. At the same time this partially digested food wreaks havoc on your intestines, damaging the lining of the intestinal walls, greatly compromising your immune system. With a compromised immune system your body becomes a host to many unwanted parasites and bacteria, which can cause a plethora of diseases and infections.

So the next time you simply brush off the ear infection or lose and frequent bowel movements as just a minor annoyance, remember that your immune system, strained and probably compromised, is fighting for it's life...your life! So take action; get informed, know your options, and live healthy!
