I didn’t used to be allergic to all these things, what happened?
The body is really a chemical-processing plant and while it all runs smoothly we don’t experience allergic reactions. However our total exposure to chemicals in food, air and water supplies may begin to overload our capacity to process. And lifestyle plays a big part, because for instance, stress causes the body to change the balance in the endocrine system, which may leave us less able to cope with external factors. Developments in agriculture and food-processing also affect us as so many different chemicals are used in modern agribusiness and all have to be metabolised out of the body. At the same time we may be becoming deficient in essential trace minerals, all of which are necessary for proper metabolism.
