Salts for allergies

© fovito – Fotolia. com  Allergies are spreading at us like a prairie fire: The number of registered patients has almost doubled in the last 20 years – is about 8 million. And there are always children often who are allergic already with four, five or six years. The cause is actually hard to understand: We are always clean, have lived almost clinical – but our environment is becoming toxic, more threatening. Our immune system, our body’s own defense, has to deal with enemies, it did not even exist a few decades ago. Our mineral content is out of balance – and may be allergic. And the more frequently. Here, nature has provided a wonderful helper to: The salts of the Dr. Wilhelm Schuessler. This can be very helpful in the prevention and in alleviating or curing allergies. Especially in children! Allergies are caused by an overreaction of our immune system to foreign protein, which was identified as “hostile” – although it often is not “hostile”.

Here, inflammatory substances are released (especially histamine), which are responsible for the allergic reactions. The reason for this incorrect response of the body is often an imbalance in the mineral content – especially a calcium deficiency – our body. The technical writer Ernst-Albert Meyer: “If we get the minerals budget back into balance and take as compensation a calcium-containing Schuessler, then we reduce the histamine release from mast cells known as the body gets so allergy under control again. . ” And that is best done by supplying Schuessler salts. Allergies can: proteins  animal hair  Dust mites  environmental toxins  insecticides  Moulds  preservatives

 drug  Foods (eg. As cow’s milk. Cereal, strawberries, shellfish)  Metals (eg. , Nickel, chrome)  cosmetics  Man-made fibers in clothing  but particularly triggered by pollen – the famous hay fever in the body occur. Allergic reactions take place mainly on the skin (eczema, dandruff, exuding vacancies) and the mucous membranes. Other typical symptoms include itching, a runny nose, watery eyes (allergic rhinitis), sneezing and shortness of breath. But gastrointestinal discomfort with diarrhea and vomiting are possible. By allergic reaction causes the blood vessels expand, and in the worst case, a shock (anaphylactic shock) with massive hypotension, respiratory and cardiac arrest.

Insecticide, for example is one of the allergens that can trigger such a shock from an engraving. This cell salts help against allergies No. 2, Calcium phosphate D 6 Ernst-Albert Meyer: “With allergies, I would like to mention as well the most important salt the salt number 2 Calcium phosphate Many allergic reactions are promoted by a lack of this salt Intake of salt point 2 (tablets) reduces the release of histamine, it is. . therefore important as a preventive measure, but can also alleviate the allergy and contain so overshooting reactions. In many cases disappear allergies after treatment with the salt number 2. In any case, its use for allergies with a doctor or medical practitioner needs to be discussed. this applies to all employed salts. ” No. 3, Ferrum phos D 12

Relieves inflammation, promoting blood circulation, strengthens the immune system. Pollutants of allergies are transported faster by allergies resulting damage to mucous membranes, the skin and inside the body are fixed faster. No. 4, Kali Muriaticum D6 A very important salt for detoxifying the body, is supportive in all the allergies of the mucous membranes in the nose (hay fever) and respiratory (asthma), it helps the decongestion of the mucous membranes and facilitates breathing. No. 8, Sodium chloride D 6 This salt is determined the best helper when you suffer from the annoying and dangerous hayfever. For a constantly mucilaginous nose and throat is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and viruses that can even make a life-threatening pneumonia from a chronic rhinitis with runny nose, red eyes and severely impaired quality of life. No. 10, sodium sulphate D 6 Allergic reactions often lead to inflammation, interfere with the water balance and solve Wassen retention (edema) in the body. In addition, the salt no.

10 reinforces an important function of the liver substance, the liver and thus promotes the detoxification and excretion of endogenous and exogenous substances. This supports the decay of the allergic symptoms. When diarrhea is sodium sulphate of the main mineral, it stops the diarrhea, and thus prevents the body loses important minerals. Salts and the widespread disease allergy Tissue Salts are a big help from nature in the fight against allergies. They are useful in the prevention, because they upgrade and strengthen the body against the increasingly pervasive allergies. But they are also very helpful in combating existing and recognized allergies. We should use them as an accompanying measure in the fight against allergies and support medical or naturopathic therapies with them. It is of course important to ensure that the salts used can not cause allergies themselves.

9 Things You should never pay

Share personal hygiene products with friends or family is inevitable, but now scientists Dr. Whitney Bowe, certified dermatologist Council of the City of New York, and Dr. Philip Tierno, professor of microbiology and pathology at the School of Medicine New York University tell us why you should not ever share? Some of these seemingly innocuous items, could put you at risk of serious skin problems and health when they are shared. Bar soap Is self-cleaning? Not really. After each use, the bar is covered with skin organisms, ranging from harmless microbes to severe disease causing pathogens. Even if antibacterial soap itself is not a murderer of germs such as alcohol, says Bowe. And it’s even worse if the soap is on a wet plate, the moisture makes it easier for bacteria, fungi and viruses to grow. The most serious risks include norovirus (gastroenteritis), and methicillin resistance Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA), a bacterium that causes serious infections. Towel Your towel has a special smell?

That actually are bacteria, fungi and mold. The towels are a breeding ground for germs, especially when colgandas in a wet bathroom. “The contaminated towels can transmit yeast infections in the skin, bacteria that cause acne, and even conjunctivitis,” Bowe said. Rake Even if you think you have too much hair, probably not worth using the knife of your friend. “When you shave, the razor collects dead skin cells and mixed with bacteria,” said Tierno. As mentioned earlier, some people may carry harmful bacteria on the skin without getting sick, so it is impossible to know if a knife is contaminated. But it could transmit blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis and HIV. Nail clippers These small instruments are a risk, because they are used when the warts and fungus are in our fingers and toes, as well as plants. Share could cause nail fungus or HPV types that cause plantar warts. It is advisable to clean them with alcohol after each use. Tweezers

Those days that your eyebrows are becoming one, we are sure you’ll ask someone tweezers. And really it is not so bad, provided they are not super dirty as they can quickly become tools for the transfer of blood-borne diseases. “It’s rare, but it is possible to transfer hepatitis C or HIV through the use of contaminated forceps,” said Bowe. Deodorant Share something that has been in the armpit of another is not a good idea. Some antiperspirants work by killing the bacteria that cause bad odor, so that antibacterial ingredients provide greater protection. But many deodorants, especially organic types, simply mask the smell of perfume, so it’s easy for germs to grow armpit these. It is best not to share or clean the stick down with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol. Lipstick “Bacteria can be transferred through the membranes of the mouth into the bloodstream,” says Bowe. Lips have an extensive network of blood vessels just below the surface, ready to absorb all that apply in the mouth, including germs. “The herpes simplex virus, which causes cold sores can spread between two people sharing lip balm, even if the infected person has no visible sores,” says Bowe. Toothbrush

“Even if you rinse your toothbrush after use, there are still bacteria in the bristles and grow overnight,” says Tierno. Your own mouth germs will not make you sick, but the bacteria on your toothbrush transmitting new pathogens They cause the common cold, strep and norovirus. Toothpaste “Not as bad as the toothbrush, but there is a certain level of risk in exchange toothpaste, especially if the pipe end touches the bristles,” says Bowe. The tube can harbor bacteria where he played the toothbrush that are transmitted with each use. If you’re going to share, simply avoid touching the end of the tube with your brush or clean it after each use.
