Help I Am Allergic To The Birds And The Bees

Aug 17, 2007
If you are allergic to birds and the bees then you suffer from Allergies Type 1, also called Contact Allergies. Allergies are abnormal reactions to normally harmless substances. The allergens can be inhaled, swallowed or come into contact with the skin.

Normally the human body learns to defend itself though experience. That is by attacking a foreign substance that has invaded and harming the body by producing antibodies. The best know of these antibodies are called histamines. Some times the immune system mistakenly recognizes a foreign to be harmful when it is not. This can lead to the overproduction of histamines specially designed to destroy the specific foreign substance.

Some of us can roll in poison ivy and come out without any problems, while others can merely brush up against a few leaves of the stuff and there are scratching for weeks. In most cases, allergies are more annoying that debilitating but to the extreme allergy suffers life can be pure misery or even death.

Foods, mold, animal dander, pollen, dust, bee stings, insect bites, and a host of other environmental factors can cause allergic reactions. If the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees are giving you trouble then take a good look at your environment.

As a general rule, the environment that you live in plays a large part in the frequency and severity of your allergy attacks. If you suffer from air-borne allergies, such as pollen, then living in a tropical environment may be beneficial to you. An environment with a high humidity does not carry some type of air-borne contaminates well. Other people will do better in a dryer environment such as the desert. Less plants growing in the area then there are less pollens in the air and fewer biting insects.

The city environment will usually have less naturally occurring air-born contaminates and fewer biting insects where as the country environment will usually have less artificial air-born contaminates in the air but a higher concentration of biting insects.

If you suffer from allergies then take a hard looks and what is giving you the problem and then take a serious look at what type of environment will beneficial to you. Try to spend several weeks in each type of environment and take note of the effects it has on you. Different people will react differently to each environment and only you can tell what would be best for you.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
