Allergy Symptoms In Poor Digestive System
What is that that causes allergies to affect negatively your immune system? Does a compromised immune system cause allergies or are allergies low immune system causes?
If you've followed this blog for a while, you know that I strongly believe there is a connection our microbiome has in fighting seasonal and chronic allergies. Now, it's important to note that food allergies have ballooned by over 45% in kids since the mid-nineties. There are numerous theories, and I have tried to hypothesize why. The one gaining the foremost traction stems from the drastic modified food choices kids face today. This change (and not for the better) in modified feeding habits has altered the microbiome composition of a majority of teens.
Relationship Between Immune System And Inflammation
There is a strong relationship between a healthy microbiome and a healthy gut. If unhealthy, this can cause significant cell damage and inflammation. Are you doing all you can to reduce gut inflammation
It's important to sometimes go back to the fundamentals concerning the “Bugs,” or the microbiome in our gut. Now, our bodies contain thirty to fifty trillion additional cells of microorganisms living in your intestines, and though, these microorganism do not weigh a significant amount in terms of pounds, they really improve our health in numerous ways that extend far beyond this article. The primary place to begin looking at our microbiome is within the gut itself.
Recent analysis has shown that the smart microorganisms move in tandem with the thin tissue cells lining of the gut so, the ultimately the cells of the immune system fight the unhealthy microorganisms like the most common forms of food poisoning, Salmonella. Now, salmonella evokes a powerful inflammatory reaction.
What happens to your body when you have an allergic reaction?
What happens when you have an allergic reaction to anything? What specifically is your body doing when it has an allergy to antibiotics like pencillin or foods like peanuts?
In this episode of The Mental Minute, I explain what happens to your body internally when it responds negatively to an inflammatory response like allergies. As a way to explain it, I use an illustration of filling a cup of coffee with cream to explain types of allergies and the responses they create.

It seems there is no more of a toxic word in American lexicon than that of the word, "Vaccinations". It's important to note this post is not taking a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine stance. It's simply to look at it from a non-linear perspective and completely from a digestive standpoint.⠀
So let's first ask the question, "What is a vaccine?" A vaccine is when you inject a bacterial or virus in your body so that your body responds by creating the proper antibodies in your immune system. The thought is that by creating the antibodies in response to the vaccine, the body would be better able to "defend" itself form the virus. That's the idea of how a vaccine should and would work in "normal" situations. ⠀
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
