Most people, at some point in their lives will experience some form of allergy or sensitivity. An allergy symptom or sensitivity can be described as an immune system activation toward normally benign environmental stimuli, such as, ragweed. Allergic responses can be fast in nature, fast in action and predictable. This reaction results in an inflammatory response, which can present as a congested nose or hives and get as serious as causing airway closure. Naturopathic Doctors use a variety of treatment modalities to modulate and strengthen the body’s immune system, reduce reactivity of the body to the substance it is sensitive too and address patient symptoms.
