Inhalant Allergies: A Route to Resolution
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America defines “allergy” as an overreaction of the immune system to substances that usually cause no reaction in most individuals. Essentially, what is normally a benign and inert substance, the body sees as a foreign invader. Through a complex series of chemical messages and reactions, matters get out of control. And allergies are certainly on the rise, affecting approximately 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children in the United States.
Upon completion of this webinar participants will be able to:
- Gain an overview of the differences between food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities, as well as scientifically validated assessment and treatment.
- Learn how to assess and treat inhalant allergies, assessment, and creating a more functional Th1/Th2 balance with nutraceutical and lifestyle interventions, along with the use of appropriate evidence based botanical interventions.
- Understand the use of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) for complete eradication of inhalant allergies will also be discussed.
