Allergy is a disorder of the immune system; Allergic reactions occur when a hypersensitive immune system reacts to a common or unusual cause like foods, drugs, environmental factors etc. These substances act as antigens giving rise to a reaction in the body which involves production of certain substances like histamine in the body. This intolerance can be towards any substance or factor. Ayurveda believes that this is a result of weak or imbalanced Agni (digestive fire), which in turn leads to Ama (toxin) formation in the body.
Ayurvedic allergy management focuses on balancing the imbalanced dosha, restoring agni, digesting or eliminating the toxins through Panchakarma and advising necessary diet and lifestyle changes. Ayurvedic Immunomodulators are also suggested to boost the immune system
