Achoo & Allergies
The sniffles, building pressure in the sinuses, tickle in the throat, and so many challenges – All relating to inflammation.
Allergies are a huge stimuli to the body creating inflammation. Stemming from the body’s overresponse to exposures to dander, pollen, molds, and toxins from the environment; allergies and their presence are on the rise.
As Dr. Randolph Lipchik, Pulmonologist with Froedtert Hospital, shared with Wisconsin Public Radio, “When people are exposed to ozone or high levels of particulate, that inflammation is worsened…So they have more trouble breathing, more coughing, more chest congestion, more shortness of breath.”
Allergies are the 6th most prevalent chronic illness in the U.S., costing in excess of $18 billion for those afflicted by this. Why are Allergies on the Rise? finds that “Many more Americans have other or additional allergies. At last count, more than half of all Americans (54%) test positive to at least one of the top 10 allergens.”
One common hypothesis for why the cases of allergies have doubled in such a short amount of time is the over stimulation of the immune system and the immune system’s inability to correctly respond. Record increases in pollen, like the 15% increase in ragweed pollen in last 20 years, contribute to an environment that is bombarding the body with antagonists as the allergy season seems to be peaking earlier with longer duration each year.
The second component, is the function of the immune system. Founder Richard V. Breunig shares his insights on the immune system in a series of videos: 4 Pillars to Immune Health, Immune Modulation, and How does the Immune System Work? The key take away is our naturally robust immune system isn’t functioning the way it was designed to. The blog Digestion & Immune System Connection looks at how the weakened immune system correlates to increased inflammation and decreased body function.
With the gut being the epicenter of the body, it provides the natural way to health; the unique formula of Somaya Life® offers modes of action that include Gut Enhancers to elevate the digestive microbiome, Gut Managers to work on gut acid, Pathogen Inhibitors to block unwanted invaders that infiltrate the gut, and Immune Communicators that modulate immune communication, directing immune response and regulating action.
Somaya Life® is the all-natural, safe alternative, meant for the body that allows the body’s digestion and immune connection to be aligned in balance, bringing the naturally robust immune system to life.
