An allergy is an acquired hypersensitivity to a substance that does not normally cause a body reaction. The allergenic substance may be pollen, smog, dust, certain chemicals in the air, chlorine, or certain food substances, which sometimes elicit a violent body response. This condition is characterized by nasal congestion, tearing, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, itching, skin rash and eruptions, dizziness and nausea.
Avoid: wheat, citrus fruits, chocolate, shellfish, dairy products, eggs, potatoes, polluted meats, polluted air, and constipation
This is characterized by the frequent passage of abnormally watery stools, usually caused by increased peristalsis, irritation of the intestines through improper diet, drugs, bacterial infections, parasites, or worms. This differs from dysentery in that diarrhea is generally due to digestive weakness, biological imbalance, and in general is a chronic condition. Dysentery, on the other hand, is caused by an infectious condition.
Avoid: cold, raw foods, most fruits, juices, overeating
Asthma is characterized by wheezing or difficulty breathing due to the bronchials (branches) of the lungs becoming clogged with waste products, or constriction due to spasms, or swelling of the bronchials. Asthma may be triggered by an allergy to food, air pollution, cold air, heart weakness, previous lung damage, mental or physical fatigue, emotional disturbance, or hormonal imbalance. In the case of a weak heart, the heart is not strong enough to push the blood through the lungs to be oxygenated, and the blood flows back into the lungs. In this case there will also be edema and bruising as well.
Constipation is a lack of regular evacuation of the bowels or difficulty in defecation. The resulting symptoms may include bloating, abdominal pain, abdominal hardness, and bad breath. We should evacuate at least once daily, with the optimal times energetically being from 5:00 a.m.-7:00 a.m. The longer the waste remains in the intestines, the drier it gets and the more difficult to pass. Food takes about 6-8 hours to go from the mouth to the intestines. Strained evacuation leads to hemorrhoids. Regular enemas or colonics are not a healthy solution to the problem. It is best to set a certain time for evacuation and train the body to respond accordingly. Rubbing the belly in a clockwise direction 100 times can stimulate peristalsis. Breathing with the mouth open is also beneficial in stimulating a bowel movement
Avoid: stress, tension, spicy foods, fried foods and meat
