Course Overview

Whether it is seasonal allergy, food allergy, or fabric allergy, these forms of hyper-sensitivities may indicate an imbalance within the body's systems. Common allergic reactions include hay fever, hives, eczema, asthma attacks and to the stinging of insects, such as bees and wasps, and to a growing number of medications, as antibiotics, penicillin, and aspirin.

On a physical level, an allergy is considered a disorder of the immune system, but it can be digestive and respiratory. On a spiritual level, an allergy may indicate a fear or a panic that the individual is holding onto and this overreact or become "hypersensitive" when he or she perceives an attack.

Either way allergies can be potentially dangerous, especially in babies; it then becomes vital to address immediately and with a safe and gentle protocol. Most allergies begun in-utero, so it is important to examine, if possible, the mother's diet, emotional life and response to stress, as these potential factors may have contributed to baby's allergies.

In this course, we will explore the different forms of allergies, their impact and the best variety of natural therapy options to build immunity and successfully deal with an onset.
