Allergies

Allergies are an excessive reaction of the body’s immune system to various triggers, so-called allergens. Possible allergens include food, pollen, house dust mites, animal dander, insect venom and medication. Symptoms can range from sneezing, skin rashes and itching to serious problems such as shortness of breath or anaphylactic shock with circulatory failure.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergies

Allergies are often diagnosed by skin tests and blood tests, but also by special tests to determine antibodies of the IgE group.

Avoiding allergens is the first step in therapy. Conventional medicine recommends anti-allergic medication such as antihistamines, which have a purely symptomatic effect. In severe cases, immunotherapy, also known as hyposensitization, may be considered.

If an allergy is suspected, it is crucial to first determine the underlying cause. This forms the basis for an individual, holistic medical treatment approach.

Holistic diagnostics can reveal serious disorders such as increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) or SIBO.

Such intestinal problems can lead to systemic inflammation and immunological reactions, which increases the development of allergies.

Treatment options focus on professional intestinal rehabilitation, a high-fiber diet and the avoidance of allergenic foods. Anti-inflammatory food supplements can also have a supportive effect.

A cause-oriented diagnosis forms the basis for an individually tailored allergy therapy. We are happy to help you.
