Atopic disease (Allergies, Asthma and Eczema)
Asthma, eczema, and allergies are medical conditions that are extremely common in our society, especially in our children. They are grouped under a general category called atopic disease (or atopy), as these conditions stem from similar root cause – immune system imbalances. Rather than treating the root cause of these conditions, conventional therapies are geared towards suppressing the symptoms, specifically with the use of corticosteroids. These pharmaceuticals typically work in the moment, but can further imbalance the immune system with long term use, worsening atopic conditions in the long term.My treatment approach for any atopic condition includes improving digestion and immune function through basic naturopathic treatments, as well as finding potential food sensitivities that may be contributing to the severity of symptoms.
