In simple terms, an allergy is a hyperactive response of the immune system to certain substances that are 'foreign' to our bodies. These substances are called allergens, and they can range from food and pollen to drugs and dust. Allergies are something we acquire throughout life, and some people are more susceptible than the others.
Conventional treatment of allergies is most commonly directed to block the immune response, or in more severe cases, to suppress the entire immune function with steroids, both topical and systemic. While this approach can provide symptomatic relief, it does nothing to address the underlying cause of the problem. Patients often become dependant on their medication, they suffer from numerous side effects, and most importantly, they worsen their overall health by constantly suppressing the immune system.
Most allergies come as a result of the decreased integrity of the mucous membranes that become 'leaky' to the numerous foreign substances, along with the repeated exposure to these substances. Once a foreign substance enters the bloodstream, and especially if it does that on numerous occasions, the allergic response can be triggered. It is important to remember that the overload of the foreign substances 'attacking' our body and the increased permeability of the mucous membranes create the vicious cycle where they both feed each other. If this situation continues for a long period of time, the person is very likely to become allergic to almost everything, as he/she is no longer capable to prevent foreign substances from entering his/her system.
Here at Trinity Holistic Wellness we focus on identifying and eliminating the underlying cause of the disease, rather than masking its symptoms. Our well-rounded approach combines intuitive touch, cellular detoxification, homeopathy, herbal medicine, dietary guidance and whole food supplementation. In addition, we utilize Electro-Dermal Screening to help identify which specific remedies the body needs to heal quickly.
We address the following allergic conditions:

- Chemical Sensitivities
- Yeast/Candida Overgrowth
Eat healthy - it minimizes the damage to the intestinal lining and provides all the required nutrients for the intestinal regeneration. Therefore, the intestinal as well as the respiratory mucous membrane will maintain its integrity and won't be too permeable.
Do NOT eat the same thing all the time, practice variety and rotation - it will make the repeated contact with the same foreign substance less likely decreasing the chances of allergies.
Supplement your diet with good quality antioxidants - they maintain mucous membranes' integrity and prevent damage.
Minimize exposure to the environmental chemicals and toxins, including a variety of food additives, cleaning materials, detergents, paints, etc. - they add up to the overall load on the immune system.
Consider a cleansing/detox program.
