Allergies and asthma in children are on the rise. Both are affected by inherited predispositions and environmental factors. Our modern life can be disruptive to the immune system, leading to over-reactivity of the immune system. Contributing factors include microbiome imbalances, candida, maldigestion, nutrient deficiencies and more.
Inherited predispositions are not always written in stone. Sometimes they are epigenetic, rather than genetic and in that case can be amenable to treatment with homeopathy. For example, cat and milk allergy sufferers often have a family history of tuberculosis and a homeopathic remedy made from TB is frequently helpful in such individuals.
Certain supplements, such as bioflavanoids, vitamin-liks substances in plants, can be helpful for many allergy sufferers as bioflavonoids have very similar properties to antihistamines, in fact, antihistamines were designed based on natural bioflavonoids.
Homeopathic remedies such as allium cepa and histaminum can frequently relieve acute hayfever attacks.
Dr. Anke tries to address both predispositions and contributing factors. She does not take your child off asthma medications, but will support him or her to recover over time with the goal of gradually being able to manage with less or even no medication.
