|Nutritional Approaches for Allergies and Asthma|
In addition to avoiding one's specific hypersensitivity triggers such as dairy products, shellfish, or gluten, there are many proactive nutritional solutions available. All will help restore the body's natural ability to create internal balance and more normal functioning.
The most important recommendation is to drink enough water. Most of us don't do this. Coffee, tea, juice, and soda don't count. Water is the key - eight cups per day are recommended. If you're not used to drinking water, start with four cups per day, get used to doing that, and work your way up to eight cups per day.
Put simply, if you're not drinking enough water, your internal metabolic environment is toxic. For those with hypersensitivity problems, not drinking enough water exacerbates the problem. Drink water!
Also, make sure you're doing food combining - eating portions of protein and portions of carbohydrate at each meal. Combining protein and carbohydrate is metabolically efficient, keeping your blood sugar level throughout the day, and removing unwanted stress on your endocrine and other systems.

Dr. Simmons is a lifesaver!! As a nurse I'm on my feet a lot and the pain in my back and hips was starting to interfere with my job. After a few visits with Dr. Simmons the pain and tightness in my back and hips was totally diminished and I can work a shift plus some and be totally pain free. She is also a delightful person! I look forward to my regular visits with her!
