Exploring Common Allergy Triggers

May 22, 2008
Millions of individuals suffer from allergies. You can visit any local pharmacy and observe numerous products that specialize in providing allergy relief. However, these products fail to actuallycure allergies. These products are designed to provide temporary relief to the symptoms that allergy sufferer's experience. In order to effectively resolve allergies, one must understand what causes the complications that they experience. These are often referred to as allergy triggers. While, in many cases, it is obvious as to what the trigger is in a particular allergy, there are many cases when this is rather challenging. Here, we will explore the issue of common allergen triggers.

The body is a unique machine that works the entire lifetime attempting to optimize an individual's health. When foreign bodies invade the body, or when the body interprets an object as foreign, it will do everything possible in order to eliminate that particular object. As the severity of this reaction increase, so does the severity of the allergies in which one may suffer. As you may have guessed, these objects are the triggers that you hear so much about. In a nutshell, it all boils down to a severe and intense reaction by the body to gang up on the object that is considered a threat and eliminate it just as quickly as possible.

Once an individual is able to identify the common causes of their allergy symptoms, it is possible to then attempt to resolve the health problems that occur as a result of them. There are many ways that this task may be accomplished. However, one of the most common strategies for tracking what may or may not be causing allergies is to keep a journal, or log. This particular journal should identify certain foods that are consumed, environmental conditions that one is exposed to, and even chemicals and other products that an individual is exposed to.

It is important to keep in mind, though, that allergens are not always this easy to pinpoint. Many individuals go a lifetime only to discover that they really have no idea what may be leading to the symptoms and complications that are being experienced. I have compiled a list of potential allergy triggers that may prove to be exceptionally troublesome to an individual. If you suffer from any type of allergy whether mild or severe you should consider some of the many possibilities listed below. You may be able to find something that you can eliminate in your diet, or environment that can help you in the area of relief.

1. It is a known fact that a number of people suffer from allergies that are directly related to the foods that they consume. There are many types of foods that are quite common when it comes to allergic reactions. These include shell fish such as shrimp, eggs, milk products, nuts, fish, and other types of foods. It is important to know and understand that allergies may simply occur out of no where when it comes to foods. One week, you may be able to down a plate of shrimp, and the next week, it may result in an allergic reaction. Our bodies constantly change, and although this is not a normal situation, it has been known to occur.

2. The next type of item that can result in allergy symptoms include those that are in your environment, and considered to be airborne. This may include environmental pollution, debris that enters the air from the place that you are employed or from the plants in your yard, dander from pets, dust mites, molds, mildews, and various types of bacterium.

3. If you are bitten or stung by an insect, ingest certain medications, and are exposed to certain chemicals, you may be subjected to the most common symptoms that occur with allergies.

In conclusion, allergy triggers are what cause our bodies to respond in the way that they do when exposed. There are many different potential triggers that can lead to the onset of symptoms. If you are able to identify these triggers, it is quite likely that you will be able to effectively control allergies.
