Allergies can exist in several forms. It is among the most common chronic conditions in the world. Leading experts in allergy describes an allergic reaction as beginning in the immune system. It is our body's response to a foreign substance that’s not typically harmful to your body. If a person has an allergy, your immune system mistakes an otherwise harmless foreign substance called allergens as an invader. Then, the immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. Allergens can include certain foods, pollen, or pet dander.
Allergy symptoms range from making you miserable to putting you at risk for life-threatening reactions. They include itchy eyes and skin, sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing, and rash. Seasonal allergies result from grass, weed, tree pollen, or molds. Cat and dog dander allergies are common. Food allergies include peanut or milk.
The most common allergens include:
- Insect stings
- Animal dander
Using ANF Discs for Allergy
"Patient had an allergic reaction after eating something. Note the “blister” on lower lip (see photo). 1st picture: before treatment, 2nd picture: 10 min post treatment, 3rd picture: 2 hours post treatment.
The only treatment was ANF frequency and water! Just like that! If it works... it works!"
