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!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • learn what you should be doing right now
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

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 possibilities (more below):
  • Increased Intestinal Permeability
  • Candida / Yeast
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Need
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Dehydration
  • Food Allergies
  • Stress
  • Selenium Need

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
non-vaginal candidiasis
craving specific foods
very angry/hostile disposition
tetracycline use
severe epigastric pain
high systolic blood pressure
constant thirst
eating during sleep hours
jumpiness
fatigue slightly reduced by eating
facial burning/tingling
bulimia
... and more than 160 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
Stress 90% Confirm
Candida / Yeast 27% Unlikely
Selenium Need 12% Unlikely
Food Allergies 3% Ruled out
Hypoglycemia 3% Ruled out
Dehydration 3% Ruled out
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Need 0% Ruled out
Increased Intestinal Permeability 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate suffering allergic/other reactions, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Indoor allergies. Do you suffer when exposed to house dust, molds, animal dander, etc.?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Minor episodes now resolved
→ Major episodes now resolved
→ Current minor problem
→ Current major problem
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of indoor allergies or indoor allergies, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Dehydration

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.
