Fish Oil and Treatment for Allergies
"fish oil reinforces your immune system, combats inflammation"
Fish oil and treatment for allergies go hand in hand as any experimented allergy sufferer would attest. If you are miserable with an allergy you would literally do just about anything to get rid of your seasonal allergy symptoms.
Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system, and calming that immune system down can be a huge challenge. It’s equivalent to calming down an angry dog, until the stimulus leaves things are going to be loud and uncomfortable for everyone involved.
Treatment for Allergies: Allergic Reaction
When your immune system over reacts to a foreign stimulant it is called an Allergic Reaction.
An immune reaction to a foreign invader, as fever to kill a virus, is an indication of a healthy immune system, but when you have a strong reaction to flower pollen your immune system is overreacting. Close to ¼ of the population have some kind of allergy to thing s like pollen, mold and other stimulants, especially during spring and fall.
Symptoms vary from itchy eyes and throat, sneezing, runny nose, sinus congestion, asthma, post-nasal drip, headaches and diarrhea. Some of these symptoms are known as allergic rhinitis (hay fever).
In the case of allergies many take an antihistamine, a decongestant or some other drug to get rid of allergy symptoms but you may take a healthier way by going for the cause, not the symptoms. At the end of this page I give you several tips to improve your immune system ( the real cause)
Treatment for Allergies - Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Fish Oil and Cod Liver Oil (they both are omega 3 fatty acids) may reduce inflammation and allergic response( read

). In this case,
cod liver oil
is indicated since it also contains vitamin A that improves the immune system and repairs mucous membranes.
More and more allergists are finding potential relief for their patients in fish oil. Fish oil and cod liver oil have proven to have a positive calming effect on an immune system that has gone haywire.
Fish oil has a positive calming effect on inflammatory ailments as well, which goes hand in hand with allergies. When an allergy sufferer is experiencing their daily battle against the environment their sinuses, eyes, mucous membranes, and specific portions of the respiratory tract are all inflamed. Calming down the inflammation can help calm down the allergy symptoms
If you choose to take cod liver oil make sure to check you vitamin D level( It has vitamins A and D; read my page Cod Liver Oil for more information) from time to time because it is possible to overdoes on vitamin D.
In case you have allergies most of the time, it may be that you have a food allergy or a chemical sensitivity. In the last case, the body is sensitive to toxins as pesticides, paints, building materials, cosmetics, plastics and more. The primary cause of chemical sensitivity is often an emotional problem.
Food allergies are different than seasonal allergies, and treating food intolerance with fish oils can be risky. Of course, every body is going to react differently based on their sensitivities and allergies, but the basic rule of thumb is that if fish-as opposed to shellfish-creates an allergic reaction, the fish oil most likely will as well.
Treatment for Allergies: Pregnancy and Allergy Prevention
Researchers found that omega-3 fatty acids, or fish oil supplements during
might help prevent allergies in babies born to women with a history of hay fever or asthma. They also found that babies’ immune cells had less reaction to allergy-producing substances compared to babies whose mothers took capsules containing the olive oil.
Researchers believe that omega-3 supplementation may have to take place when the immune system is developing in order to have a benefit. The use of fish oils during lactation proved beneficial, and the increase in the fatty acids also has a likelihood of
increasing a child’s IQ
when taken during nursing.
Allergies do tend to run in families, although several family members may have allergies they all may be allergic to different allergens. Studies have proven that the use of fish oil during pregnancy for high risk groups had a significant impact on the likelihood of the child ever developing allergies.

Do you know why Omega 3 with DHA is so good for you? Most people don’t - and as a result they do not enjoy the level of vibrant health that they should! Instead they suffer from avoidable ailments such as heart disease. Even worse, many people as they get older, gradually ‘lose’ their mind and live out their twilight years not even recognizing their friends or family.
