Allergies and Asthma, Comprehensive Treatment in Racine, WI

Allergies exist in many different forms and can affect every major system of the body. Allergies are an exaggerated response of the immune system to a particular substance, something that usually is harmless, such as plant pollen, dust mites, molds, insect stings or food. The immune system perceives a particular substance as a threat and triggers the release of histamine, causing an allergic symptom. Environmental and food allergies can be the underlying cause of a variety of symptoms and medical conditions. Common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, watery/itchy eyes, itchy nose or throat, and sinus symptoms including headache and pressure behind the eyes. Rashes, coughs, migraines, shortness of breath, chronic sinusitis, fatigue and digestive problems are also classic symptoms of allergies. In some individuals, allergies may interfere with daily activity and reduce quality of life.

Asthma is a common condition that leads to difficulty breathing, coughing, and wheezing – a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing in the bronchial tubes (airways), impairing the ability of the lungs to exchange air. There are two types of asthma: allergic (caused by exposure to an allergen) and nonallergic (caused by stress, exercise, a cold or flu, exposure to extreme weather, irritants in the air or some medications). Asthma can be triggered by many factors from foods to pollutants, changes in temperature, stress, allergens, and unsuspected toxins. All these stresses strain the body, leading to nutritional deficiencies and cellular damage.

Allergies and asthma often go hand in hand. Allergy induced asthma is triggered by exposure to the same substances that activate allergy symptoms. Identifying triggers and avoiding allergic substances include not only airborne allergens such as molds, pollens, animal dander, and dust, but also food allergens such as gluten, dairy, eggs, gluten, and other foods. Reducing allergic exposure is therefore central to the treatment of asthma.

Patients of Byron Health and Healing have access to range of comprehensive diagnostic testing and medical services available to diagnose and treat allergies and asthma, eczema, and recurrent infections. Dr. Byron will design a customized treatment plan to reduce and desensitize your response to allergens, balance the allergic/inflammatory pathways in the body and correct nutrient imbalances, helping your body respond naturally and effectively.
