The Facts And Figures About AllergiesAs I see more and more people, especially children, around me suffering from allergies or allergy related conditions I decided to look online for some allergy facts and figures.

I would like to share what I found and to let you know that you and your family don’t have to be one of these statistics. Read to the end to find out why.

Take a look at these allergy facts from www.allergy magazine.com:

1) One in three of the UK population now has an allergy and it is rising at 5% a year.

2) There is only one consultant allergist per two million population: “Allergy Services in the NHS are totally inadequate and cannot cope with the rising amount and increasing severity of allergy in the UK,” says a new report by the Royal College of Physicians.

3) Asthma, rhinitis, and eczema have increased in incidence two to three fold in the past 20 years.

What Causes Allergies?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

We are electrical beingsIt was Gary Craig who first introduced me to the idea that our bodies are electrical circuits. Blockages and imbalances in that circulation can cause allergies. There are several factors that can cause these blockages and imbalances. Let’s take a look at what they are:

1. Inherited from close and distant relatives. Inherited allergies do not always take the same form in different generations. For example a father with asthma could have a child with eczema. The predipositon for allergy has been passed on but not the actual type of allergy.

2. ‘Energy Mismatch’ as Jame Thurnell-Read calls it. I love this phrase and it describes beautifully the work that I do and what this site is all about. This describes the ‘clash’ that occurrs between a person and the unsuitable energies of foods, drinks, chemicals, pestisides, environmental factors, bacteria, viruses, fungus, moulds, heavy metals, vaccines, MSG, aspartme etc. The list is endless!

Allergies In Children - What Are The Most Common?Today I wanted to take a look at some of the most common allergies in children, as well as allergy related conditions;  their symptoms and the culprits that are most likely to trigger them.

As I have said before, allergies are on the increase.  NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) say that there is a 500% rise in hospital admissions of children due to food allergies in the past 20 years (NICE).

Let’s take a look at some of the more common allergens for children. They are:

  1. Foods
  2. Pollens
  3. Dust
  4. Dust mites
  5. Animal dander (skin, saliva and urine on hair or fur)
  6. Feathers
  7. Cosmetics
  8. Moulds/molds
  9. Chemicals used for cleaning, air fresheners and chemicals on clothes and furniture
  10. Medicines (especially penicillin)
  11. Vaccines
  12. Venom from insect stings
