but if its an autoimmunity issue then that would be allergies. if your body is incorrectly handling the response such as pollen in most cases it produces a histamine which is an auto immunity issue hence the taking of antihistamine.
Autoimmune issues are not allergies. They are your bodies improper detection of cells. The body sees it as an antigen, or foreign matter, and starts to attack...as in Hashimoto's, Lupus, MS..etc. Allergies is a response to an allergen.
Yes, I was thinking immunity/reaction rather then autoimmunity where its the body goes awry and attacks itself. Thanks for the correction
You are welcome. I would much rather have allergies, than autoimmune issues.
cloverleaf, I'd like to see a hub about how you were treated for your eczema. I'd like to try it myself.
I traveled to a different country and I have a bad case of acnes and eczema in about 2 months time period, the pharmaceutical company I worked with was investing in some odd treatment for it, but had a lot of steroids as main ingredient.
Steroids work, but they aren't good for your body long term. I will admit before I knew better (before I became a medical herbalist) I did use them. Now, I have an ointment when I need it. Perhaps your body is reacting to stress?
i went to an herbalist and was told the change in the environment was doing a bit of damage to me. even when i travel to certain states it does the same. just shows how fragile we are. :(
Yes, I agree. Our bodies are fighting so many toxins and other environmental *stuff* all the time. Be well!
