Are you struggling with strange allergy symptoms that seem to come out of nowhere, causing sudden mysterious skin rashes, itching, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, or even difficulty breathing?
Welcome to the 21st century, where we live a fast paced and rapidly changing lifestyle that can cause us to feel stressed out on a regular basis.
In addition to the stresses of daily life, our bodies are exposed to hundreds or even thousands of chemicals and environmental toxins each day. Even if you live on a remote mountaintop, your body is breathing, drinking and eating all kinds of chemicals that have gotten into the environment.
These chemicals are affecting you and everyone else on the planet, and for some of us, our bodies have difficulty handling all of this extra input. When the immune system becomes overstimulated, we can develop all kinds of strange allergy symptoms.
Some of these symptoms may fit into what we know about allergies, such as hay fever, contact dermatitis and so on ... but some symptoms may be just plain weird!
Some Examples of Strange Allergy Symptoms
For example, did you know that some people get allergy symptoms whenever they sit down? Imagine getting watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing and skin rashes every time you sit down to watch TV! No one knows yet what causes this, although it could be some kind of reaction to the chemicals in the chair upholstery
There are some people who break into a rash every time they use their cell phone! This may be related to a metal allergy such as nickel allergy, which can cause skin rashes, or to the exposure to the electromagnetic fields.
Did you know some people break out into hives when they sit in the sun? For most of us going to the beach would be fun, but for anyone who experiences this kind of sudden rash, it is really miserable.
What You can Learn from Strange Allergy Symptoms
If you notice that you are getting more allergies lately, your body is trying to tell you something. It is feeling stressed out and overburdened, and it needs some help!
The first thing to do is to slow down a little. Schedule time for a little extra rest and relaxation, and pay some extra attention to what you are putting in your body.
Instead of reaching for a donut and coffee when you get tired in the afternoon, try eating and apple and stepping outside to take a five minute walk. Instead of eating a candy bar, filled with endless chemicals, sugars and very little nutrition, try getting a healthy treat from the whole foods or health food store.
There are many simple and natural ways that you can prevent or eliminate allergy symptoms. It is not necessary to use fancy skin creams or take a lot of expensive supplements or medications if you know how to naturally reduce your body's tendency to react to irritants with skin rashes and allergies. This kind of natural approach has the extra side benefit of making you look radiant and beautiful!
