An estimated 40 million Americans have hay fever. Another 9 million suffer from asthma; and between 10 and 20 million have had hives at one time or another. An unknown number have food allergies, reactions to insect stings or occupationally-related allergic disorders. Over 80 million people suffer allergies.
Scientists estimate that one in every three Americans will develop hay fever, asthma, hives or some other allergy at some point in their lives. These scientists say that they believe they will have the “cure” for allergies in perhaps five to ten years. While Hygienists have no “cures,” allergy sufferers do not have to wait five to ten years to terminate their suffering. The purpose of this lesson is to enable sufferers to rather quickly overcome their problem. It will explain what to do so that allergy symptoms are never again experienced.
Scientists feel as though allergy is now one of the best understood conditions since they discovered the antibody-antigen theory. One might ask, if they understand this condition so well, why is it that one in every three continue to suffer from this disease under their care? Hygienists do not have allergies. The scientists further say that their treatments for allergies are far better than they have ever been and far more effective. How effective can their treatments be when not one of their patients ever regained their health from such treatment? When they are merely holding forth a hope of a “cure” five to ten years down the road? Scientists claim that they understand allergy is proven a lie by the fact they have no solution. It they understood allergy problems, they’d readily solve them as have Hygienists. Sufferers would be guided to a solution in a few days to a few weeks. This lesson presents a comprehensive solution, and any medic who understands less than this really understands nothing.
The medical community is constantly fighting against germs that “constantly wage war on human flesh.” This is a completely false idea since germs or bacteria are a normal and integral part of the body and perform important and useful symbiotic functions. They do not attack us. Instead, bacterial flora work for the welfare of the body. Physicians explain that the “immune” system protects and guards against harmful foreign invaders. Allergies occur, they say, when this “immunological” defense system becomes overzealous and tries to protect us from things that don’t actually harm us. Dr. Sheldon Spectner, a Los Angeles allergy physician says, “When the immune system attacks and destroys a dangerous bacterium or virus, that’s great; but when it attacks pollen, dog dander or chocolate ice cream, that’s an allergy.”
White blood cells do have the property to “engulf” and destroy spent cells, viruses, bacteria and other cellular constituents no longer useful to the organism. Unwholesome foods such as chocolate ice cream will eventually result in toxicosis that will soon create the need for an eliminative crisis which is termed “disease.” Mucus, secreted due to toxicosis, will sensitize membranes linings, rendering them more sensitive to elements such as pollen, but the body does not turn against itself. The body always strives toward the welfare of the organism.
A recent newspaper article stated that as many as 4000 people die of asthma each year. This article further stated that nearly 200,000 hospitalized patients suffer allergic drug reactions annually and an additional 50,000 are put into the hospital because of drug reactions. As you can see, the “cure” is much worse than the “disease.” Below is a quote from the same newspaper article: “Because allergens are basically harmless, why does the body react to them in such a way as to hurt itself?
“Scientists now think that the IgE antibody defense mechanism originally evolved to protect us from such parasites as hookworm. But, because parasites no longer are a problem for Americans and the peoples of other industrialized nations, the powerful IgE antibodies have turned their attention to pollen and other allergens, mistaking them for parasite-like enemies.”
The above statement demonstrates ignorance of physiology and the body’s innate wisdom. It is based on superstitious notions from primitive limes when it was believed that evil spirits were the cause of illnesses. Our faculties do not turn against us. If they did, every human and animal would demonstrate these symptoms as we all possess the same mechanisms within our bodies.
