|Nutritional Approaches for Allergies and Asthma|
In addition to avoiding one's specific hypersensitivity triggers such as dairy products, shellfish, or gluten, there are many proactive nutritional solutions available. All will help restore the body's natural ability to create internal balance and more normal functioning.
The most important recommendation is to drink enough water. Most of us don't do this. Coffee, tea, juice, and soda don't count. Water is the key - eight cups per day are recommended. If you're not used to drinking water, start with four cups per day, get used to doing that, and work your way up to eight cups per day.
Put simply, if you're not drinking enough water, your internal metabolic environment is toxic. For those with hypersensitivity problems, not drinking enough water exacerbates the problem. Drink water!
Also, make sure you're doing food combining - eating portions of protein and portions of carbohydrate at each meal. Combining protein and carbohydrate is metabolically efficient, keeping your blood sugar level throughout the day, and removing unwanted stress on your endocrine and other systems.
I love Dr. Ripploh and his staff. They are very accommodating and really worked with my busy schedule. Every time you go in, you feel as though you are getting the best treatment possible. I highly recommend this office, he has helped me so much.
