Hyperallergic patients – anaphylactic patients
In the course of thousands of years, our immune system has developed an endlessly complicated yet extremely effective defense mechanism. It protects our body from causative organisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites.
Various groups of white blood corpuscles with bizarre names such as lymphocytes, killer cells and phagocytes, etc. are in the front line. They themselves may fight the battle, sacrifice themselves for their host organisms or produce and send dangerous weapons called “antibodies”.
In order to fulfill their responsibility to fight foreign intruders everywhere, these white blood corpuscles “patrol” blood and lymph pathways.
This is the only way for them to show up at a “theater of war” on short notice. Particularly important organs and tissues for the production and coordination of this “defense army” are bone marrow, liver, spleen, thymus gland and “lymphatic” tissue such as tonsils, appendix and the lymph nodes everywhere in the body. The lymph nodes in the intestine are of particularly great significance. They represent about 70% of our total immune system. Therefore, as you’ll see later on, a well-functioning intestine is quite important when treating allergies. Our immune system learned to distinguish “foreign” tissue from “the body’s own” tissue. It spares the “good” and fights the “evil”! An allergy is a misinterpretation of the immune system, whereby the immune system reacts to substances, which are normally not harmful to the body such as pollen, fur, food, etc.
Hyperallergic is where the body as an extreme immune reaction
The goal of an effective allergy treatment is to correct those erroneous immune-reactions
When treating a patient that has allergies
- See that they keep their emergency kit at hand.
- Build up and stabilize the organs.
- Extreme caution with provocation test – under clinical precautions only.
- Do not treat with allergens immediately.
