Positive Association Technique (PAT) may help provide long-term relief from allergy symptoms. In fact, a recent client survey revealed that a massive 85% of people reported a major or complete reduction in their symptoms that lasted for a year or more for 54% of them!
But there are some factors that can impact the longevity of your results. Follow these five top tips to help make your results last longer …
Excess histamine in the body can trigger common allergy symptoms, including runny nose, sneezing, hives and skin irritations. But boosting your levels of essential vitamin and minerals may help. For example, vitamin C can help lower histamine levels, calcium helps the body flush out excess histamine, zinc helps minimise its release and vitamin B6 can help your body break it down.
The best way to get what you need is through a balanced diet. But, if you’re struggling, supplements may help. Speak to your natural health practitioner about the best option for you.
The link between leaky gut and allergies is circular – a leaky gut can cause food allergies, and food allergies can trigger a leaky gut. This is because, when you eat foods that you’re allergic to, the lining of your gut can become inflamed, which can increase intestinal permeability. And, if your allergies go undetected and you continue to consume these foods, you may spark an inflammatory cycle where your gut lining cannot repair itself. Follow the two-step naturopathic approach to encourage gut healing and help stop this cycle in its tracks.
Stress is a well-known trigger for many allergy-related problems, including atopic conditions like hay fever, asthma and eczema. This is because, when your body’s stressed, it releases a number of chemicals and hormones including histamine (the chemical responsible for your dreaded allergy symptoms) and cortisol (a hormone, which can damage immune function and lead to recurring inflammation, autoimmune diseases or allergies).
Stress affects everyone differently. But there are a range of treatments that can really help, including natural options like therapy, exercise, supplementation and dietary changes. Speak with your practitioner about the best treatment options for you.
Many people find that they can tolerate a certain amount of an allergen before experiencing symptoms. So being aware of your allergies and your personal thresholds can help keep your symptoms at bay.
Allergies raise histamine and inflammation levels in the body, which can make you more susceptible to developing allergies to other substances. Help stop this cycle in its tracks by getting on top of your allergies as soon as symptoms appear.
At Health & Wellness Australia & Auckland (HWA), we use a technique called muscle testing (or kinesiology) to help identify your sensitivities, which helps guide your PAT session/s.
