Today I want to unpack some of what’s happening inside your body when you suddenly seem to have an onset of allergies… What’s up with that?
You may not believe this but it’s true – oftentimes what you’re experiencing is your body’s response to a change in hormones. So think about all the times that could be happening in your life – PMS, peri-menopause, menopause – starting to get the picture? Let’s dive into it on this episode and I think you’ll find that there are some very practical things you can do to offset, or even get rid of those issues.
Hormonal changes can trigger allergies. It’s a real thing.
We tend to think that allergies are something that we either have or we don’t. You know, we’re born with an intolerance for something and have to figure out how to live with it. But that’s not the only way allergies come about. In fact, there are circumstances common to every woman that can cause allergies to flare up suddenly and with no warning. And in many cases, it has to do with hormonal changes. On this episode, I uncover how it happens and give you some ideas for how you can deal with it in a healthy, wholesome way.
Histamines are inflammatory. Cortisol is anti-inflammatory. When they fight, it can be UGLY.
It’s absolutely AMAZING how the complex processes of the body that are meant to keep you healthy and strong can actually go to WAR against each other and cause misery like you’ve never known!
Two of those body chemicals are histamines and cortisol, and when you undergo hormonal changes both of those are amplified for different reasons. Since histamines are inflammatory and cortisol is anti-inflammatory you can imagine what takes place! Find out what you can do to mitigate those kinds of issues, on this episode of SFT TV.
Your hormones are like a symphony. When they get out of sync allergies can wreak havoc.
As a woman, you HAVE to know that what I’m saying here is true. Your hormonal system is very much like a symphony. It’s got so many elements that go into it that have to be synced just-so in order for your body to function properly. When your hormones go out of sync – like during PMS or during menopause – amazingly strange and disconcerting health issues can begin to happen. And it all happens because your body starts to produce histamines, the substance in your body that makes you sensitive to various things (allergies). Find out more on this episode.
Avocado, chocolate, and orange juice: good or bad for allergies?
You hear stuff all the time about how certain foods are more healthy than we used to think even though they contain sugars or fats. Avocado, chocolate, and orange juice are among those. What you’ve heard about those foods are right in most cases. However, if you are suddenly experiencing allergy issues because of the onset of PMS or peri-menopause, those foods can actually be problematic because they prompt the production of histamines, which are one of the main problems you’re likely experiencing.
On this episode I unpack the details about how the body responds to the natural substances in those foods, so be sure you listen.
