Very, very rarely does a person have an environmental “seasonal” allergy without having a food allergy. The food allergy, from a food that is usually eaten every day or maybe a few times a week, has created a constant “tolerable” level of histamine in your body that you probably don’t even notice. However, when your body is forced to deal with more histamine from the environment such as pollen, grasses, ragweed, etc., you now exceed your tolerance mark – because you were already at the limit. Now the symptoms appear. A good analogy is to think of a bucket that is full with water (histamine). Once more water is added (from the environment), then it overflows and out come the symptoms. Lowering the water in the bucket by addressing the food allergy or allergies makes the environmental allergies much more tolerable, even unnoticeable. Additionally, strengthening the immune system to help deal with the environmental stressors is also a big help. Many times people also have allergies from fatigued adrenal glands and a lack of proper stomach digestion, and as this is mentioned all over in various places on this web site, I will refrain from further comment here other than to say it is a common occurrence.
