  • “Allergy medicines don't actually lower our allostatic load. If anything, they increase oxidative stress because they're naturally more acidic in our physiology. Many of the antihistamines will also have side effects that let us know that there's actually an increase in load on our system. Side effects might be drowsiness, dry mouth, blurred vision, or headaches.”
  • “If we don't have fermented foods and enough fiber in our diet for the microbiome and the colon to thrive on, what happens is our oxidative stress starts to happen cellularly in the digestive tract first. Allergies are complicated. But you want to get to the root cause of it. When you do, you get all these side benefits instead of having all these side effects.”
  • “The longer you do intermittent fasting, the more you can break all food combining rules. But if you have allergies or autoimmune conditions, you have to nurture your digestion and pay attention to food. Combining these basic rules of food combining can be a total game-changer.”
  • “The body's super intelligent. It's hyperreactive to the environment with allergies. What it's trying to do is try to flush out some of the inflammation. It's trying to enter deeper levels of hydration and flow. When we take the anti-histamine, it actually disrupts the body's natural response to flushing out the allergen and also flushing out the inflammatory response.”
