Why Do My Allergies Keep Coming Back?

Do you struggle with allergies that keep coming back? So did I for years. In fact you can read my allergies story here. I also invite you to keep reading as I share with you some ideas and reasons why your allergies keep coming back.

If you have allergies that keep coming back no matter what you do and you can’t seem to pinpoint your allergies to a specific reason or cause, then here are some suggestions as to what to do next to finally get some relief.

1. Do you have candida? Candida and yeast infections are at the root cause of allergies for a lot of people. If you aren’t sure, there is a “Do you have candida?” quiz that you can take here.

2. Start taking a daily probiotic. Probiotics can help balance your stomach bacteria and can help in other ways. Learn more about the questions to ask before buying a probiotic here.

3. Take a serious look at whether or not you have leaky gut. A leaky gut can cause all kinds of problems including allergies.

4. Read the book- the Diet Cure for some great ideas.

5. Find a good acupuncturist who specializes in allergies to help you. I did acupuncture 2-3 times per week for 6 months and then once a week for another 6 months and now I almost never have allergies and if I do have a relapse, I go to acupuncture again and they disappear.

6. Figure out if you have any food sensitivities. Corn and Dairy are two of the biggest ones when you have a lot of allergies. You can either do an elimination diet, work with a NAET practitioner, or try a food sensitivities test like the ALCAT.

What questions do you have? Ask them in the comments below. I also offer free wellness consultations that you can request below so I can help you more personally. Above all know that it is possible to get rid of your allergies and to stop your allergies from coming back over and over again.

What To Do When You Have Allergies Year Round

Do you have allergies year round? Do you struggle to stop sneezing? Is your nose stuffy all of the time or almost all of the time? This was me for years and it didn’t seem to matter what I did or what allergy medication I took, my allergies never seemed to go away.

That said, if you have allergies year round, the worst thing to do is to continue popping allergy pills and hoping that someday your allergies will go away. The truth that you won’t hear from most doctors unless you are working with a naturopath, acupuncturist or functional medicine doctor, is that if you have allergies year round, then there is a reason and it usually isn’t just the allergies.

Here are some of the common reasons why you may have allergies year round.

  1. You have hidden food sensitivities (not the same as food allergies) or food allergies that are masking as hayfever or seasonal allergies.
  2. You have candida or recurring yeast infections.
  3. You have parasites.
  4. You have an autoimmune condition that may have year-round allergies as one of the symptoms.

So what can you do about this?

First, you need to find out what is really causing you to have year-round allergies. There are three main ways to accomplish this.

  1. Go see a good naturopath, functional medicine doctor or acupuncturist who specializes in allergies. Warning: Your insurance will not cover it and you will probably have to plan on at least $400 out of pocket. If you can’t afford that right now, I recommend you save up the money and do it when you can and focus on the other two methods for now.
  2. Try an elimination diet. While this can be a major pain and inconvenience, this can be one of the best ways for you to figure out which foods are bothering you and causing your year-round allergies. You can also take my quiz on food sensitivities for some ideas.
  3. Assume that candida is at least part of your problem and do a candida cleanse. I can help you with this if you contact me via my coaching page.
