There’s a frequent practice now, among many doctors, to stamp anything that they can’t successfully diagnose,”allergy”. The cause of this is that so little is understood about allergies the diagnosis leaves tons of space for explanation and discussion. The”indefinite” investigations have always been favoured by the responsible doctors. Two hundred years back, a condition that couldn’t be diagnosed was known as”bad humours” and anybody who endured anything from stomach-ache to cancer or gall-stones was advised his humours were acting up. This was followed by the”acids” concept, where strange and mysterious acids were answerable for all undiagnosed problems.
This isn’t to say that allergies don’t exist. There surely is a strange set of body responses to which has been given the name, allergy. To be precise, there are two such groups: those that are localized to the surface of the body, from face to feet, or skin allergies; and people that occupy the chest, throat and nasal regions, or respiratory allergies. Both of these groups include the vast majority of allergic reactions.
In the respiratory group are such common ailments as hay fever, asthma, sinusitis, etc.. There’s good reason to think that these particular allergies are related to vitamin C deficiency. Low effectiveness (natural) Vitamin C tablets have proved useful in treating these allergies, as has the B complex.
This isn’t to be confused with the”mysterious acids” of one hundred years back, which have been conveniently blamed for many ailments. The acids I speak of are generated right within the body and consumed daily by day from the daily diet. The rational diet, with its balanced intake and organic form, won’t support a hyper-acid condition.
Herbal laxative pills (1-2 per day for three days); moderate enemas (1 per day, for a week) and Return to Nature Diet provides the comprehensive broom a hyper-acid condition needs. The recommendation involved daily organic bathrooms with specific emphasis upon the region affected. Stress (douche) baths upon the affected region and a mild (not too lively ) rub following the tub, were effective.
Bicarbonate of soda should not be used to soften water for a sensitive skin, as it’s an alkali and will have a drying and damaging effect in time.
Dry skin shouldn’t be bathed too often or for long intervals. Baths should be rapid affairs and olive oil may help to alleviate the reduction of skin oil. Air bathrooms should be indulged in often as a substitute for your everyday water-baths that you might miss.
