allergy-causeThere are a host of health-related symptoms and illnesses which are attributed to allergies when they are actually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. We have assembled the following table to help you determine whether or not your health symptoms may be allergies or is in fact more related to a viral or bacterial issue.

A central question is important to each of these complaints: Is it caused by a virus, bacteria or an allergic reaction? In general, the doctor has more effective treatments than is available at home for a bacterial infection. Remember that viral or allergies do not improve with treatments by penicillin or other antibiotics. To demand a “penicillin shot” for a cold or allergy is asking for a drug reaction such as a more serious “superinfection” and is actually a waste of time and money.

Keep in mind that factors other than diseases may cause or contribute to upper respiratory symptoms. Smoking accounts for a large number of coughs and sore throats. Pollution (smog) can produce the same problems.

electromagnetic-allergies

Our society, with its many advantages, is not risk-free. We must continually weigh the benefits derived from new materials and products against the potentials hazards. Many problems arising from external sources of electromagnetic force of beyond our control~but we can make evaluations, take precautions and exercise control over our own use of devices which emit a electromagnetic frequency (EMF.)

People have experienced symptoms and illnesses from using electromagnetic devices ranging from headaches to cancer. European countries such as Sweden and others have set minimum standards for exposure to electromagnetic fields, while the U.S. seems to mostly ignore the issue. As a result, the burden of limiting exposure to an electric energy field has been placed on the public themselves throughout much of the world. The key to limiting exposure is the gathering of knowledge about electromagnetic energy and the possible effects on the human body.

Consider the length of time that you use electrical appliances everyday. For example, the electromagnetic field generated from an electric razor or hair dryer is greater than that of a television set or computer, exposure time to these appliances is much shorter.

Here are some simple precautions you may take to protect against electromagnetic low-frequency energy waves or fields:

  • Keep as few electrical appliances in your bedroom as possible. This will help minimize the exposure during your sleeping time.
  • Do not use electric blankets or heating pads, especially near your head.
  • Use a screening shield to reduce the waves from your computer monitor if you use an old-style CRT unit or purchase a newer LCD type monitor which emits low electromagnetic frequency.
  • Check all electrical cords to insure their insulation is intact.
  • Choose a bedroom which is far removed from the entry of the main electrical source into the home.
  • If possible, choose a home site that is far from overhead high-power electrical lines.
  • Avoid free-standing or individual electric room heaters.
  • PET-OWNERS: Keep your dogs and cats from lying on electrical cords for long periods of time as they can develop serious illnesses from exposure to EMF just as humans. In fact, it is believed that certain canine and feline leukemia cases may be caused by their exposure to EMF.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Electromagnetic energy fields can have the most detrimental effect on the brain, so limit your exposure to these fields over time and keep a distance of at least 12” when possible. This would include the usage of a cell phone; use a wireless bluetooth device or even an external mic whenever possible to minimize your overall exposure times.

allergy-preventionThere are many beliefs in the best methods for allergy prevention when compared to the straightforward methods of diagnosing and treating allergies. Here are some of our most important questions with the best answer for allergy prevention.

Can allergies be prevented?
Generally, people who are aware of their problems can avoid offending allergens by not walking or driving in the country during the pollen season; by avoiding drafts and exposure to cold; by minimizing their exposure to house-dust; by trying not to breath the fumes of paint, insecticides or products containing irritants and other allergy symptom triggers. Allergic persons should strive to stay in good physical condition and to avoid emotional tension and fatigue. When they occur, respiratory infections should be taken seriously and treated immediately. It is especially important that parents watch children for allergic tendencies.

Foods are a common cause of allergies in infancy. Breast milk is preferable than cow’s milk in potentially allergic children. Eggs, wheat products and nuts should be added to the diet one at a time, and the child’s reaction should be recorded in a daily log.

Can indoor allergies be prevented?
When it comes to indoor pollutants; bedrooms and frequently used rooms should be kept as dust-free as possible. It is important to utilize HEPA vacuums and air purifiers which clean airborne particles from the air very efficiently. The more they are used, the better the indoor air quality becomes. Having pets such as a dog or cat should be avoided in homes which have an allergy sufferer as animal dander is hard to remove from the indoor environment once they are introduced.

Is good health important to allergy prevention?
Yes, allergy symptoms may be minimized with good health. The best way to achieve and maintain good health is with a balanced diet and a well-rounded program of exercise, recreation and rest. Smoking and drinking can actually set you up for allergy reactions and should be avoided. Although these measures will not cure allergies, they help prevent allergic symptoms by contributing to better resistance.

What are lesser-known allergy triggers?
Allergy scientist state that such emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger and strong excitement can precipitate an allergy attack. This is not to say, however, that these emotions are the physical basis of the allergy; which is real and of primary importance to people with allergies. In general, the allergic sufferer is better off in an atmosphere of calm and confidence. Parents of asthmatic children should as much as possible, maintain an attitude of calm and reassurance. The allergic child for example, should be encouraged to be self-reliant and to take part in family activities as possible.

animal-allergiesAnimal allergies are one of the most common type of reactions allergy sufferers experience worldwide. Here are some of our most important common questions along with the best answer for animal-related allergies.

We had a dog for two years before our son became asthmatic. How could the dog be the cause if the asthma took so long to develop?
No one is allergic to a substance the first time it is encountered; a period of sensitization usually precedes the onset of allergy. Two years is a typical period, though some allergies may appear sooner.

Is it safe to have a pet that does not shed?
The allergen from dogs or cats that causes an allergic reaction is not present in the hair of the animal, but rather in the dander (flakes of the animals skin).

Is it all right to have a pet if it is outside most of the time?
It only takes a few minutes for sufficient dander to accumulate on carpets, furniture and other indoor surfaces. This is why allergic individuals have a problems when a pet is kept outside or even kept in a basement. It should be noted that when the pet is removed from the house, and after thorough cleaning, it may take up to 4 weeks for the dander to dissipate. Cat dander can actually take years to disappear from the indoor environment once introduced.

Can’t I just receive shots for allergy to dogs?
Allergy injections for sensitivity to animal dander are not advisable except in unusual circumstances.  One circumstance is a blind person who becomes allergic to an seeing-eye dog; another is a veterinarian who becomes allergic to animals. The most effective course of action is to remove the pet from the environment.

I have two children who are allergic to pollen and mold. They have never had problems around animal. Is it safe to give them a dog or a cat?
Allergic children are predisposed to allergies to new substances. A Casual encounter, such as visiting friends who have a pet may not be enough to sensitize a child; but continued, massive exposure to a house pet such as a dog or cat may. Unfortunately, this sensitization frequently takes one or two years, which means the new allergy becomes evident just as the net pet becomes an integral part of the family and just when separation can be the most traumatic for the child. The best advice is simply not to have a dog, cat or other fur-bearing animal in the home where a family member is allergic. Some pets that are safe for allergic families are tropical fish, turtles, chameleons, iguanas and snakes.
