Oligotherapy: For Allergies, Think Of Manganese!

Seasonal allergies, with their myriad of symptoms such as itchy eyes and runny nose, poison the daily lives of 20 million French people. If you are sensitive to a particular allergen, oligotherapy can help you rebalance your immune system. Manganese is the flagship trace element against allergies because it is reputed to be able to act gently on your allergic terrain. Explanations.

What is the mechanism of allergies?

An allergy can be defined as a dysfunction of the immune system that reacts disproportionately to harmless substances such as pollen, dust, or certain foods.

The sudden and exaggerated reaction of our immune defenses to these allergens can trigger various symptoms.

These can include respiratory symptoms in the case of hay fever or allergic rhinitis, but also skin symptoms in the case of eczema or contact allergy.

How to prevent and treat allergies?

Allergic individuals should theoretically eliminate from their environment the allergen(s) to which they are sensitive. This "avoidance method," possible when the allergen is a single type of food, becomes much more difficult in the case of cross-reactive allergies or when allergens are impossible to completely avoid, such as dust...

To treat symptoms, your doctor may prescribe antihistamines and corticosteroids. However, these two types of medications only relieve your symptoms and do not cure your allergy, unlike desensitization.

Desensitization is a method of gradual exposure to the allergen. You are first given very small doses of the allergen in question and they are gradually increased to help your body accept this substance. This effective treatment has the disadvantage of lasting a long time (this protocol must be followed for several years) and not being possible for all forms of allergies.

In addition to treatment with antihistamines or desensitization, it may be interesting to use oligotherapy, specifically a manganese cure, to support the immune system and reduce symptoms.

Note: You can safely combine oligotherapy with your usual treatment because this oligo-element cure is completely non-toxic and has no side effects.

What are the properties of the trace element manganese?

In oligotherapy, manganese is the ultimate anti-allergy trace element. It is recommended for all forms of allergies (allergic rhinitis and food or cross allergies), as well as for the prevention of asthma and eczema.

This trace element acts as a regulator of the immune system and inhibits the secretion of histamine, the chemical mediator that plays a key role in triggering allergic reactions.

Manganese is also a cofactor of numerous enzymes and thus contributes to strengthening the mucous membranes that prevent allergens from entering the body.

Note: Manganese is not only an anti-allergic agent. This trace element is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids, in the production of insulin, and in the production of thyroid and sex hormones. It is indicated for certain joint diseases such as arthritis because it also contributes to good bone mineralization and cartilage integrity.

When to take a manganese cure?

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you can use oligotherapy as a preventive measure before the risk period. Start your manganese treatment two months before the arrival of pollen to strengthen your resistance to the allergen in question.

It is recommended to take this trace element three times a week, during the two months preceding the risk period and throughout the pollen season.

If you have a reaction such as food allergies, eczema, hives or an asthma attack, you can also take manganese at the very beginning of symptoms.

What are complementary trace elements?

For the most allergic individuals, it is recommended to supplement the manganese cure with other trace elements. You can especially use the association of manganese-cobalt, zinc, and sulfur.

The manganese-cobalt association is particularly aimed at people in their fifties who have been allergic since childhood.

Zinc has an interesting antioxidant and antihistamine effect for asthmatic individuals who have both eczema and allergic rhinitis.

Finally, sulfur acts on urticaria and eczema and promotes the elimination of bronchial secretions.

To properly use these complementary trace elements, do not hesitate to ask for advice from your pharmacist or naturopath.
