Ordinary Vegan Podcast #49: Allergy Causes, Allergy Symptoms & Prevention

Each year, over 50 million Americans experience various types of allergies.

Many of these allergic conditions are on the rise. 

In medicine, the hygiene hypothesis states a lack of early childhood exposure to germs suppresses the natural development of the immune system. 

In other words, living conditions in much of the world might be too clean and being exposed to germs as a child may protect us from allergies. 

An additional theory is that the increased antibiotic use parallels the rise in allergies and asthma. 

But other research suggests that the rising prevalence of allergies are the result of many factors.

Bottom line, no one really knows the why, but there are ways we can protect ourselves. 

Today we will explore the most common allergy causes, symptoms, and prevention. 

Discover what allergen triggers could be lurking in your home. Learn the difference between cold and allergy symptoms.  Find out some plant-based substitutions for common food allergies. 

Last but not least, I will reveal three foods that can help relieve your allergies.

Hope you enjoy today’s podcast.
