Overview

Allergy is a spontaneous response of immune system to any foreign material or environment. It is often observed in the people who are more sensitive towards this condition. These allergic substances which often cause reactions can be pollen, dust mites, fungal spores, medicines and food. If we talk about the seasonal allergies, they may occur seasonally like allergy from spores and cold/ hot weather. These allergies take their time and is needed to be take care throughout the season.

The allergic person may have symptoms and in some cases severe symptoms also occur.

Symptoms of the seasonal allergy

  • Nasal and chest congestion
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Wet eyes
  • Itching sensation
  • Tiredness
  • Roaring nose and sore throat

Understanding Allergies

The proper cure of allergy is not present in allopathic world, they only stop the symptoms and the course of medicines is compulsory throughout the season. The antiallergic drugs possess many side-effects, which can leads to the complications sometimes. But if we talk about Ayurveda there are some medicinal herbs which can help to get rid of seasonal allergy with no side-effects. Also the cause of allergy is the stomach, incomplete digestion of food releases toxins and which results in allergies. These toxins are foreign particles to the body and with the collection of these toxins, hyper sensitivity condition arises.  Which in results shows sensitivity for the foreign allergens and raise problems.

Ayurveda relates allergies to over excitability or hypersensitivity of Nervous System. Allergies are more common among people who are hypersensitive, restless, do overwork and are prone to stress. Allergic reactions take place when a person's immune system is weak. 

Allergies vary from person to person. As per the principles of Ayurveda, our body has three vital energies. These are the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Imbalance of either of these individually or in combined form can cause allergies According to Ayurveda, an allergy is the result of a particular substance (the allergen) aggravating a specific. Ayurveda therefore classifies allergies according to doshas: vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Vata (if vitiated) is responsible for nasal allergies like continues sneezing and complaints of running nose. Vata types of allergies are often related the digestive tract with symptoms such as burping, bloating, digestive problems, gas, vague abdominal pain. They can also include symptoms like wheezing or headache, as well as sneezing on change of temperature, ringing in the ears, joint pain, sciatica, muscle spasms, insomnia and other vata-type discomforts. 

Pitta (if vitiated) is responsible for allergies like wheat allergy, lactose intolerance, different food allergies, heartburn, hyperacidity, indigestion, stomach upset, nausea, or vomiting and also redness and swelling in the eyes. Pitta-type allergies are also skin related ailments such as hives, rashes, itching, allergic dermatitis, eczema. Pitta-type allergies can also cause hot flashes. 

Kapha (if vitiated) is responsible for allergies like hay fever, Bronchial asthma. Kapha allergy symptoms include irritation of the mucus membranes frequent episodes of cold, congestion, cough, sinusitis, water retention, bronchial congestion, and even sleeping disorders. In the digestive tract, kapha types of allergies can create a certain heaviness in the stomach and sluggish digestion. 

The protocol

The digestive tract and immune function are so intricately linked, proper food combining can provide essential support by helping to improve digestive health, which in turn, can improve immune health. Ayurveda outlines a number of foods that, while perhaps fine to eat separately, are incompatible with one another. 

There is a deep connection between digestion and immune function, the digestive fire (jatharagni) after can be a utilized to support the immune system and reduce the chances of development of allergies. When we observe a fast or follow light diet regimen our bodies immediately allocate the extra energy to cleaning, rejuvenating the system for optimal performance. A dietary cleanse can help to relieve the digestive system. Cleanses help to clear toxins and have a stronger digestive fire—all of which will support digestive health, proper immune function, and fewer allergies. Cleanses can be as simple as a half or full-day fast, a juice cleanse, or a simple diet of something like khichri.

The protocol includes specific whole food supplement recommendations, dietary guidelines, an allergy tea for maintenance or minor allergies and a customized formula of Ayurvedic herbs to cleanse the respiratory system and/or GI tract.  There are lots of medicinal herbs and herbal formulation available to deal with all kinds of allergic conditions but they need to be customized for each individual in most cases.  This approach based on Ayurveda and using Ayurvedic and western herbs has proven to be helpful in providing relief and recovery from allergies of all type.

Success stories

Sara Medina, Ventura CA

. . . for 4 days [I had allergies] until I finally saw the doctor, who one day gave me an inhaler (which didn't help), and the next day I was put on prednisone which also did little to help until the 5th day. Even on 3 different allergy medications and the steroid, I was still having an allergic reaction every few hours . . . . it was getting worse now that the second round of steroids was over, and I was about to leave town. At our visit, Khabir made me a strong tea and I was able to get some immediate relief . . . It was decided that I would start a lung tonic and sip it throughout the day, along with an organic honey. Within a day I felt considerably better, and week later I came off the other allergy medications. In the last 2 days I've only had to take one benedryl, which is quite unusual for me! This lung tonic has made a huge difference in my life and although I went through the bottle quickly, it is comparable in cost to what I was spending on allergy medication (which was not helping), and I am committed to staying on it because it has brought such relief! Thank you Khabir for taking the time to customize my mixes and pay attention my individual needs.

Khabir's approach to my lifelong breathing problems, asthma, was very effective. He changed my diet, recommended some supplements and gave me an herbal powder to take between meals followed by vomiting therapy which I have continued to do. It is hard for me to believe that no one told me about this ancient, simple and highly effective method. Thanks Khabir, you changed my life for the better.

" I play competitive USTA tennis and after playing a lot in high heat for a few weeks this summer, I developed this “heat rash”. I tried to treat it myself with no success, then went to the doctors 5 times over the next 3 weeks, but it only got worse and spread after I took the half dozen prescriptions of steroids and anti-fungal pills and creams they gave me. I was starting to worry it may be something far worse than I had imagined since nothing was knocking it back. I ran into Khabir and he provided an anti-fungal tea blend that he ask me to apply to my skin and drink for 7 days. I followed his advice and it cleared up in about 4 days completely. Thank you Khabir for clearing my condition and restoring my peace of mind! I will be drawing on your knowledge more in the future. Best regards . . . "

Just wanted to say thank you Khabir! I haven't needed any allergy medication and have gotten off my Advil. The best news is...I no longer need a pill to sleep or a pill to stay awake!
