Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions. Common allergens are pollen and certain food but many other substances like metals, insects or medications could also be potent allergens for some people.
As there is no complete cure to allergies, allergic people are usually recommended to avoid the allergen and steroid or other medicine help to suppress allergic symptoms. When we want to deal with such condition, what we need to keep in mind is the fact which has been shown by an 80% success rate that the allergic reaction is not caused by a defective, intolerant and weak immune system, but by a simple misinterpretation of the system in a moment of stress or adaptation.
With this approach, hypnotherapy can be highly effective at relieving the symptoms of allergies. Hypnotherapeutic techniques are used to access the power of the subconscious mind and to incite different patterns of thought and behaviour at the subconscious level. Allergic reactions may be eliminated with only a few sessions, depending on the cause and complexity of the reactions causing the allergic response. Hypnosis can be effective in relieving the physical reactions within the body due to sensitivities that lead to allergic symptoms as well as relieving the stress that can often trigger an allergic episode.
