immunity & skin issues
Our immune system is responsible for the overall health of our bodies. If it dysfunctions or overloads there is an increased likelihood of suffering from allergies and the development of autoimmune disease. Those with compromised immune systems often suffer from recurrent coughs, colds, infection and sometimes asthma. They can be regularly overwhelmed by that "run down" feeling which follows particularly stressful (emotional or physical) periods leading to time off work and/or schooling. They may find themselves frequently more sensitive (or allergic) to foods and elements in the environment, and suffer from recurrent eczema, rashes or acne.
All sorts of allergies including environmental and food allergies, bronchitis and asthma and auto-immune conditions can result from the digestive disturbances because of maldigestion or malabsorption. This scenario demonstrates the interrelation of our digestive system to our immune system and also why these traumas are not just a stiff neck which will go away in time. Children in particular are more susceptible to infection when in child care and schooling environment.
Sensitivity to certain preservatives and additives may cause severe behavioural reactions, sleep disorders and digestive upsets particularly in children. It is common for children with allergy and skin challenge to also have a neurological skin deficit. The way we are born into this world can have profound disruptive effects on our skin and the way we react to environmental factors. I find that if this deficit exists and is balanced, profound changes can take place with regards to immunity, allergy and skin issues. Refer to Neurological Skin Balancing/reset for further information on my system for testing and balancing this deficit which can be a precursor for eradication of allergies, eczema, acne and other skin issues.
