Allergic DiseasesThe Allergy Epidemic

presented by Leo Galland, MD, FACP, FACN

One billion people around the world suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, and food allergies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Award-winning integrative physician Leo Galland, M.D., reveals the shocking rise of hidden allergies that cause unexplained weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, ADHD, depression, brain fog, digestive problems, and more. New research shows the immune imbalance at the root of allergy has profound effects on systemic inflammation, metabolism and neuropsychiatric function. Just as the earth’s environment is out of balance, our bodies have become out of balance, fueling the rise in allergies.

Three levels of environment are critical:

  • The outdoor environment,
  • The indoor environment, where we spend 90 per cent of our time
  • The internal environment, within our digestive system.

Nutrition impacts on each level in discrete ways. The solution is to empower people to balance immunity through a nutritional and lifestyle program that reduces allergic reactivity, decreases toxic exposures, improves antioxidant status and restores a healthy microbiome.
