In absolute frustration, I did what "everyone does", I searched the web! While that comment is somewhat self deprecating, I just wanted to do a bit of research so I was informed the next time I had to see my doctor for some allergic reaction. I wanted to intelligently ask about alternatives to the steroids that had become my default treatment. I had been prescribed steroids 8 times in a 12 month period.
I discovered The Allergy Kit, a do it yourself home treatment. It is natural and drug free. It sounded too good to be true, but I thought, it also couldn't hurt. I contacted the company directly and offered to test the product in exchange for an honest review, knowing what a great fit The Allergy Kit would be for Our Daily Green, a blog dedicated to green and healthy living. This statement also serves as my legal disclaimer. I received my kit no charge. But as a writer of integrity, I would not endorse a product that didn't work. I would have returned it and not written a review if it hadn't worked.
To explain the science behind The Allergy Kit, I want to explain a bit about how allergies work and how the body reacts to an allergen. According to HowStuffWorks,
As amazing as the immune system is, it sometimes makes mistakes. Allergies are the result of a hypersensitive immune system. The allergic immune system misidentifies an otherwise innocuous substance as harmful, and then attacks the substance with a ferocity far greater than required. The problems this attack can cause range from mildly inconvenient and uncomfortable to the total failure of the organism the immune system is supposed to be protecting.What The Allergy Kit does is systematically reprogram the immune system through a holistically based treatment similar to acupuncture. The Allergy Kit's natural allergy treatment helps your body reestablish a positive relationship with the allergen by using a laser or tapping to stimulate the acupuncture points that are reacting to the allergen. Concentrated homeopathic vials that represent the allergen are used to stimulate the body's response and reprogram it.
The Allergy Kit comes with seven vials of common allergens. It is important to use each vial in order and follow the instructions to the letter. I say this because I can honestly testify that it worked and I followed the instructions, so that is what I recommend.
If you suffer from food or environmental allergies, I cannot recommend The Allergy Kit enough. They offer a 30 day trial period, so even if it doesn't work, there is no financial risk. Just send the kit back. After the initial seven vials are finished, they can be repeated as needed, in no particular order. There are also supplemental vials for less common allergies to treat after the initial treatment.
