Allergies
We are allergic to industrial chemicals. That is what our bodies do to when exposed to a harsh irritant. We are not typically allergic to food. When we are there is something wrong. Our threshold of reactivity is lowered. Auto immune reactions occur. You can have all kinds of tests done to determine the "allergen" but this short-sighted, knee-jerk response will reveal nothing of the underlying condition causing the allergic reaction to some inane food. There can be extenuating circumstances, but rarely. It's your body that's wrong, not the food. It can start shortly after birth, doesn’t mean it’s genetic! That’s a doctors cop out for “we don’t know”. The allergy, in MOST cases, is the problem not the allergen. To eliminate the allergen does nothing to fix the problem. That is the short term solution, like prescribing insulin for certain types of diabetics, cover up the problem. True glowing health means no allergies. Think I am insane? All this can be accomplished by diet. Raw foods, no toxins, no allergies, no digestive problems, no cancer, no diabetes etc. Simple. Why complicate matters? Watch out for your GP’s and prescriptions, I have said it before, loads of data, very little understanding.
