Allergies

Do you know anybody with allergies or are you having any? - Tamoah Burton

Specially in springtime a lot of individuals are having issues. Instead of being able to enjoy the awakening of nature, they have to "hide" from pollen and co.

 

Here's why this happens:

Spring is the season when trees, grasses, and flowers begin to bloom and release pollen into the air as part of their reproductive process. Pollen grains are tiny and lightweight, making them easily airborne and capable of traveling long distances. When people inhale pollen, particularly during windy days, it can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.

 

For people with allergies, exposure to pollen can provoke a range of symptoms, including sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, coughing, and wheezing. These symptoms are the body's immune system's response to perceived threats from harmless substances like pollen. Allergic reactions can vary in severity, with some individuals experiencing mild discomfort and others facing more severe symptoms that interfere with daily life.

In addition to pollen allergies, some individuals may also experience cross-reactivity with certain foods that contain proteins similar to those found in pollen. For example, people allergic to birch pollen may also react to certain fruits, vegetables, and nuts, such as apples, cherries, almonds, and carrots. This phenomenon, known as oral allergy syndrome, can exacerbate symptoms for people with pollen allergies.

Besides the known helpers like:

- Using air purifiers with HEPA filters to remove pollen and other allergens from indoor air.

- Taking over-the-counter antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays, or eye drops to alleviate allergy symptoms.

- Showering and changing clothes after spending time outdoors to remove pollen from the skin and clothing,

have you ever thought about looking into the WHY your body is reacting the way it does?

Allergies occur when the body's immune system reacts to substances that are normally harmless, such as pollen, pet dander, certain foods, or insect venom.

Here's why this happens and what goes wrong in the body's immune response. When the body encounters an allergen, such as pollen or dust mites, the immune system mistakenly identifies it as a threat and produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE) to fight off the perceived invader.

 

In response to the presence of IgE antibodies, specialized immune cells called mast cells release histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream. Histamine is responsible for many allergy symptoms, such as itching, swelling, and inflammation.

 

The release of histamine and other inflammatory mediators triggers a cascade of immune responses, leading to the characteristic symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and skin rashes.

 

Environmental factors, such as exposure to certain allergens or pollutants, can play a role in the development or exacerbation of allergies. For example, living in areas with high pollen counts or high levels of air pollution may increase the risk of developing allergies or experiencing more severe allergy symptoms.

 

The hygiene hypothesis suggests that reduced exposure to certain microbes and infections in early childhood may contribute to an increased risk of developing allergies. According to this theory, the immune system needs to be exposed to a variety of microbes and environmental antigens to develop properly and differentiate between harmless substances and true threats.

 

In some cases, allergies may be associated with autoimmune disorders, where the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own tissues. For example, autoimmune conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis may be linked to an increased risk of developing allergies.

 

Overall, allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances, triggering an inflammatory response that leads to allergy symptoms.

In "normal science" the exact reasons why some individuals develop allergies while others do not are still not fully understood.

 

But in my investigative medical approach the question is again WHY. Why is your immune system lacking its job?

Here are some common factors that can weaken or suppress the immune system:

Stress: Chronic stress can negatively impact the immune system by increasing the production of stress hormones like cortisol, which can suppress immune function. Prolonged stress can impair the body's ability to fight off pathogens and increase susceptibility to infections.

 

Poor Diet: A diet lacking in essential nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, can weaken the immune system. Consuming excessive amounts of processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats while not getting enough fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins can compromise immune function.

 

Lack of Sleep: Sleep plays a crucial role in immune function, and chronic sleep deprivation can suppress the immune system. During sleep, the body produces cytokines, proteins that help regulate immune responses. Not getting enough sleep can reduce cytokine production and impair the body's ability to fight off infections.

 

Smoking and Excessive Alcohol Consumption: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can weaken the immune system and increase susceptibility to infections. Both substances can damage the lungs and other organs, impairing their ability to function properly and defend against pathogens.

 

Chronic Illness: Certain chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and HIV/AIDS, can suppress the immune system. These conditions can disrupt immune function and make it more difficult for the body to mount an effective immune response against infections.

 

Medications: Some medications, such as corticosteroids, chemotherapy drugs, and immunosuppressants, are designed to suppress the immune system. While these drugs may be necessary to treat certain conditions, they can also increase the risk of infections / allergies by weakening the body's natural defense mechanisms.

 

Age: As people age, their immune system naturally weakens, a phenomenon known as immunosenescence. Older adults may have a less robust immune system, making them more susceptible to allergies.

Environmental Factors: Exposure to environmental toxins, pollutants, and allergens can also suppress the immune system. Prolonged exposure to air pollution, heavy metals, pesticides, and other environmental contaminants can impair immune function and increase the risk of respiratory infections and other health problems.

 

But where actually sits this famous immune system?

The immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against harmful pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, allergens and other foreign invaders. It is distributed throughout the body and comprises several key components:

 

Bone Marrow: The bone marrow, found in the center of certain bones, is where blood cells, including white blood cells (leukocytes), are produced. White blood cells play a crucial role in immune function by identifying and destroying pathogens.

 

Thymus Gland: Located in the upper chest behind the breastbone, the thymus gland is responsible for the maturation of T lymphocytes (T cells), a type of white blood cell essential for adaptive immunity. T cells help regulate immune responses and directly attack infected or abnormal cells.

 

Lymphatic System: The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, nodes, and organs that carry lymph, a clear fluid containing white blood cells, throughout the body. Lymph nodes, found in various regions such as the neck, armpits, and groin, filter lymph and trap pathogens, facilitating their destruction by immune cells.

 

Spleen: The spleen, located in the upper left abdomen, acts as a blood filter and reservoir for immune cells. It helps remove old or damaged red blood cells and filters pathogens from the blood, triggering immune responses when necessary.

 

Lymphoid Organs: Other lymphoid organs, including the tonsils, adenoids, and Peyer's patches in the intestines, play roles in immune surveillance and defense against pathogens.

 

Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT): MALT is a component of the immune system found in mucosal surfaces, such as the respiratory, digestive, and urogenital tracts. It serves as a frontline defense against pathogens that enter the body through these routes.

 

Skin: The skin acts as a physical barrier to prevent pathogens from entering the body. Additionally, specialized immune cells in the skin, such as Langerhans cells, help detect and eliminate pathogens that breach the skin's surface.

You can see, the immune system is distributed throughout the body, with various organs, tissues, and cells working together to mount immune responses and protect against infection and disease.

Overall, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including stress management, proper nutrition, regular exercise, adequate sleep, and avoiding harmful substances, is essential for supporting immune function and overall health. Changing your daily habits helps your immune system.
