Allergies are an immune response. Somewhere in our physiology, our immune system is over-reacting to a trigger. But why? One of the most common reason is actually deep, cellular dehydration. When we are dehydrated, our body releases more histamine, which is actually a neurotransmitter that controls water balance. One of the leading causes of deep, cellular dehydration is stress.
The stages of stress
Stress can suppress the innate immune system
When the innate immune system is suppresses, we are prone to more fungal and viral infections. On the other side of the seesaw, the acquired immune system is more reactive. We react more to triggers and suffer with more allergies.
