Hay Fever and Allergies

This eBook addressed the real causes of seasonal allergies like hay fever and other irritating health problems, and provides more informed solutions based on recent research into how to stop allergies at the system level. It doesn't take much now to be able to get rid of allergies, without having to see a doctor, pay huge medical and pharmaceutical bills, or fill your body with chemicals that do more harm than good to your system. However, if you are a doctor or run a clinic of any kind, you can learn things that you can apply to your own clinic to provide maximum benefit to you and your patients. Keep yourself informed with real research! When you find the underlying causes of allergic rhinitis (the medical term for hay fever) you will be far more informed on how to fight this in your own body. Take the natural way to heal yourself!

Measurement of Total IgE

Asthma tend to have higher total serum IgE concentrations. About half of such patients have total IgE concentrations that are two standard deviations above the mean of a normal control group. Significant overlap of total serum IgE concentrations in normal subjects and in patients with allergic asthma and hay fever has been demonstrated (Fig 3.3). Therefore, the total serum IgE concentration is neither a specific nor sensitive diagnostic test for the presence of these disorders. Total serum IgE has been found to be markedly elevated in atopic dermatitis, with the serum IgE concentration correlating with the severity of the eczema and with the presence of allergic rhinitis, asthma, or both. Patients with atopic dermatitis without severe skin disease or accompanying asthma or hay fever may have normal IgE concentrations (45). Total IgE concentrations have been found to be markedly elevated in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis.

Noninfectious Conjunctivitis

Conjunctival Chemosis

Acute conjunctivitis should be distinguished from the group of allergic forms of conjunctivitis, which can be due to seasonal influences and often affect the nasal mucosa. Examples include allergic conjunctivitis (hay fever Fig.4.17) and vernal conjunctivitis. In giant papillary conjunctivitis, the inflammation is triggered by a foreign body (hard or soft contact lenses. There may also be an additional chronic microbial irritation such microbial contamination of contact lenses. Phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis is a delayed allergic reaction to microbial proteins or toxins (staphylococcal inflammation). This disease occurs frequently in atopic individuals and is promoted by poor hygiene. The cardinal rule in allergic conjunctivitis is to avoid the causative agent. Desensitization should be performed as a prophylactic measure by a dermatologist or allergist. Long-term treatment includes cromoglycic acid eyedrops to prevent mast cell degranulation.

Conditions with excessive numbers of warts

The most common cutaneous illness associated with abnormal processing of HPV is atopic dermatitis, although some studies have not supported an increased incidence. A recent study from the United Kingdom demonstrated that cervical cancer is more common in eczema patients and patients who acquire common warts. However, this study suggests that non-atopic eczemas, such as seborrheic dermatitis, may be the type associated with cervical cancers, as hay fever, an illness commonly co-morbid with atopic eczema, was not statistically correlated to cervical cancer 31 .

The Allergic Reaction

An allergic reaction is simply the overresponse of the immune system to a specific stimulus, usually environmental. This stimulus is called an antigen. There are 4 basic types of allergic reactions. We are all very familiar with the type 1 response. This reaction is seen as a result of hay fever, bee stings, cats, dogs, or even medications. It is the cause of the itchy, watery eyes, and runny nose many of us experience each spring when we cut the grass or stroll through the park. A brief look at the cause of this response will help us better understand the treatment of these conditions.

Medical Research On Latex Aller

Individuals with a history of atopy, hay fever, rhinitis, asthma or eczema. In a number of reports examining latex allergy in various populations, atopy was one of the significant predisposing risk factors. In a study of latex sensitization in a low-risk pediatric population, Bernardini et al. reported that all the children with latex sensitization were atopic whereas only 29 percent of non-sensitized subjects had positive skin prick responses to environmental or food allergens.48 Liss et al. demonstrated a five-fold increase in positive skin tests among atopic health care workers compared to non-atopic workers.43

Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is part of an inherited syndrome, which may also manifest as atopic eczema and asthma. In allergic rhinitis, airborne particles, such as grass pollens, moulds and animal allergens, are deposited on the nasal mucosa giving rise to acute and chronic reactions. Allergens combine with the IgE antibodies produced by the plasma cells of the nasal mucosa, which are avidly bound to the Fc-epsilon receptors on mast cells. This triggers degranulation of mast cells and releases the inflammatory mediators of the type I hyper-sensitivity reaction, causing rhinorrhoea and nasal obstruction. Microscopically, the nasal mucosa shows numerous eosinophils, abundant plasma and in some cases an increased number of mast cells. There is goblet cell

Hypersensitivity reactions are immunological reactions that cause tissue damage. Type I hypersensitivity reactions mediated by cell-bound IgE antibodies occur immediately after exposure to antigen. The reactions are caused by the release of mediators from mast cell granules. Localized anaphylactic reactions include hives, hay fever, and asthma generalized reactions lead to anaphylactic shock. Immunotherapy is directed toward

Harmful Plants

Tens of millions of people suffer from pollen allergies, one cause of hay fever. Hay fever is an allergic reaction that results in sneezing, a runny nose, and watering eyes. Pollen allergies occur at three seasons. In early spring, deciduous trees, such as oak, ash, birch, and sycamore release pollen. In late spring or early summer, it is mainly wild and pasture grasses that cause allergy problems. Of the cereal crops, only rye pollen seems to be an important cause of allergies. In late summer and fall, the highly allergenic pollen of ragweeds, shown in Figure 27-11, affects many people. Contrary to popular belief, large, colorful flowers do not cause hay fever. Pollen that causes allergies comes from small, drab flowers that are wind-pollinated.

Histamine

Sinus problems, hay fever, bronchial asthma, hives, eczema, contact dermatitis, food allergies, and reactions to drugs are all allergic reactions associated with the release of histamine and other autocoids, such as serotonin, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. Histamine release is frequently associated with various inflammatory states and may be increased in urticarial reactions, mas-tocytosis, and basophilia. Histamine also acts as a neu-rotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS). Upon release from its storage sites, histamine exerts effects ranging from mild irritation and itching to ana-phylactic shock and eventual death.

Human Dermatophytes

Atopy is an underlying disease syndrome which has been consistently connected with dermatophytosis. A high proportion of chronically infected individuals, over 40 in some surveys, have hay fever, asthma, or atopic eczema either on personal or family history (Hay, 1982 Jones et al., 1973). In addition a high proportion of individuals seen in dermatological clinics with peripheral dermatophyte infection either have negative or immediate-type hypersensitivity to dermatophyte antigens on intradermal testing. Increased prevalence of immediate-type responses to intra-dermally injected antigens is also a feature of atopic subjects. There is also evidence that some individuals with persistent dermatophytosis may also have sensitivity to environmental moulds suggesting a modified (atopic) immunological response to a family of antigens.

Allergy

An allergy is the body's reaction to a substance that may be harmless in itself but the immune system misidentifies and treats it as a pathogen. Antibodies, called immunoglobulin E or IgE, react by attacking the substance and in the process histamine is released by the surrounding cells which causes an allergic reaction. The allergic reaction may include itchy nose and throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, skin irritations, hay fever, hives, asthma, high blood pressure, abnormal fatigue, constipation, or hyperactivity. A severe reaction called anaphylactic .shock will swell the larynx, obstruct the airway, and may be fatal. This is an emergency situation and remedied by an injection of adrenalin. Ephedra 20 mg capsules, relieves symptoms of hayfever. Stinging nettle 1 to 2 freeze dried capsules every 2 to 4 hours, relieves symptoms of hayfever, hives, and itching. Khella relieves spasms in smooth muscle of the bronchi in hayfever, do not use on skin.
