Ever notice little babies playing and sticking everything into their mouths. We’re constantly trying to stop this behavior and keep things as clean as possible for the little ones. But many studies are suggesting that this natural exploring by our little ones plays a very important role in strengthening the immune system and keeping babies immune system strong and their gut’s healthy.
Not only are they exploring their environment, they are creating a healthy microflora by exposing their immune systems to a wide range of micro bacteria, pollens and other things we call dirt and dust.
First was the hygiene hypothesis that believed the cleaner we become, the better it is. But studies found that the cleaner we are, the more allergies we get. When things are so clean, our microflora does not get the diversity to thrive and allergies and asthma are more prevalent.
Today you see those antibacterial wet wipes everywhere. Even in grocery stores to clean the shopping cart handles. Many of those wipes are antibacterial and kill all bacteria. Now we realize that those bacteria help us to build a strong immune system and the chemicals in most of those wipes soak into the skin and can be toxic over time.
It turns out that exposure to downright dirt from our kids exploring is good and they instinctively do this. A recent study from Science study shows just that.
Studies this month found that children that grew up on farms had less asthma and allergy symptoms. It was believed that it was drinking raw milk might populate the gut with beneficial bacteria and many other ideas come to mind like eating healthier and a more back to nature way of living.
But this study published from The Ghent University Hospital in Belgium by Bart Lambrecht, proved that the dust from dairy farms that were laden with dust, bacteria and who knows what else, strengthened the immune system and helped to eliminate dust allergies and asthma.
They tested rats after being exposed to farm dust and found they were able to help eliminate the allergic response to the dust.
They believe, after further study, that they might be able to create a preventative medicine to counteract the allergy epidemic and might even be able to create a vaccine against asthma and allergies.
But until then, there are other methods that have been used successfully to treat allergies and their symptoms.
Ynge Ljung LAc has has been treating patients for over 20 years with acupuncture and other energy medicine techniques and has created a home treatment called The Allergy Kit. Based on principles from NAET, homeopathy, energy medicine and practiced in her office, she was able to create and easy way to treat allergies at home. Nothing to take, just a simple way to eliminate allergies and their symptoms.
It may not be possible to rid your home entirely of dust and dust mites. If you suffer from any type of allergy including dust and dust mites, you can now take healing matters into your own hands and be able to treat allergies yourself in the comfort of your own home using The Allergy Kit.
