It is unfortunate that asthma, allergies and eczema are commonplace in children, as well as many adults who have suffered from these ailments for decades. Finding a solution can be complex, as there are numerous underlying causes. An effective resolution does take time but can be achieved through natural pediatric treatment in Everett rather than resorting to conventional medical practices that may have accompanying side effects.
Naturopathic medical professionals have discovered that eczema, allergies and asthma are indicative of an immune system that is out of balance. Effectively supporting the immune system can restore balance and either substantially reduce or eliminate allergic reactions.
Identifying the issues that compromise your child’s immune function can be accomplished in 2 simple and painless ways. The first is the most common. The IgE skin scratch allergy test is commonly used by allergists to determine the source of environmental sensitivities. The child’s forearm is lightly scratched, and an allergen serum applied to each scratch to measure the reaction (if any). To reduce the allergic response, a diluted serum of the offending allergy is taken under the tongue each day. Over time, allergic symptoms lessen or are eradicated.
In the IgG food sensitivity test, a blood sample is taken to evaluate potential food sensitivities. While not the same as actual food allergies, food sensitivities contribute to allergy, asthma and eczema discomfort. Removal of these sensitivities can dramatically improve allergic symptoms.
Vitamin and mineral supplementation can also help restore balance to the immune system. Fish oils and omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D and probiotics all contribute favorably to a healthier immune system.
