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?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind indoor allergies consists of three steps:
|Vitamin Pantothenic Acid Need||20%||Unlikely|
|Food Allergies||0%||Ruled out|
|Increased Intestinal Permeability||0%||Ruled out|
|Candida / Yeast||0%||Ruled out|
|Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Need||0%||Ruled out|

Histamine has several functions within the body. One is to facilitate an immune response to allergens, and another is to regulate available water. Dehydration causes histamine levels to rise in order to manage reduced water levels, but this increase in histamine also produces allergy-like symptoms.
