Indoor Allergies

What Causes Indoor Allergies?

To successfully treat and prevent recurrence of indoor allergies we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow indoor allergies to develop?"

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • check your overall health status
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • learn what you should be doing right now

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind indoor allergies consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to indoor allergies.  Here are eight of many possibilities (more below):
  • Candida / Yeast
  • Vitamin Pantothenic Acid Need
  • Increased Intestinal Permeability
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Need
  • Selenium Need
  • Dehydration
  • Silica Need
  • Hypoglycemia

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
afternoon coffee/sugar craving
bloating caused by many foods
difficulty falling asleep
being very easily irritated
moderate afternoon/evening fatigue
fatigue slightly reduced by eating
having asthma
morning sickness
gallbladder attacks
slight tongue swelling
brittle fingernails
significant bowel movement changes
... and more than 100 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of indoor allergies:
Cause Probability Status
Increased Intestinal Permeability 98% Confirm
Candida / Yeast 28% Unlikely
Dehydration 26% Unlikely
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Need 1% Ruled out
Hypoglycemia 1% Ruled out
Vitamin Pantothenic Acid Need 1% Ruled out
Silica Need 0% Ruled out
Selenium Need 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
