Food allergies are not always triggered by food. They are often the result of a cumulative build up of other allergens in the body. www.jonbarron.org/enzymes/proteolytic-natural-health-alternative-allergies.
There are over 100,000 new chemical additives and xenoestrogens that have been added to the enviroment in the last 50 years alone that could have made their way into your food and water supply that could be contributing to your allergy problems. Also, any number of vitamin and mineral deficiencies can contribute to the problem. What can you do about it?
- Digestive enzymes might indeed be helpful since they help break down the complex proteins in many of the foods that do not digest properly and that create circulating immune complexes that contribute to allergies. (Wheat, corn, dairy, and soy come to mind.)
- You might also want to consider using proteolytic enzymes without food to help clean out the circulating immune complexes.
- You might also want to supplement with a good antioxidant formula that contains quercetin, since that helps tone down allergic responses. Another thing to consider is a liquid trace mineral complex. Sometimes this alone can make a major difference.
- And finally, a good colon/liver detox combo may be the single most important thing you can do to reduce your body's over-response to allergens.
