Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Allergy and asthma

Allergy is over- immunereaction to the presence of antigens on the skin and mucous membranes. In certain situations, allergy is normal and adaptive - it reduces the risk of infections, including feverish pneumonia and tuberculosis. But just today, when we do not need it so much, allergy is spreading instead of retreating. In the urban environment, the epidemic has arisen as a result of a combination of urban dirt, excessive hygiene, and rural scarcity. We all know how it is manifested: hay fever, asthma, urticaria, gastrointestinal problems, just the immune naivety of greenhouse children against common pollens, fur, feathers, mites, bumble bees, etc. Particular attention is paid to asthma - an extremely unpleasant rhinitis with indistinct mucus, nose and itchy eyes, which can cause death by suffocation due to reflex withdrawal of the bronchi. Allergies and asthma here devote a separate article because they can effectively cushion adaptogens.

Prevention of allergy

Today, when the epidemic of allergies has peaked, we are getting closer to preventing it. The chimneys of factories and power plants have been given filters, urban air is cleaner with exhaust catalysts and people are starting to return to their natural way of life again. Only some parents still can not imagine that their branches should be allowed to become dirty in nature or even in a farm yard. In addition, occasional allergic rhinitis is no longer a disease, but a natural reaction. For example, I always have allergies in moldy interiors, in smoky areas and also in cold. These are all situations where the mucus protects me from dust and spores (pulmonary mycoses once used to be fatal). Cold mucus production also prevents colds - infections with influenza or other respiratory infections , which blossom in the cold and UV rays.

Phytotherapy of allergy and asthma

While mild allergy types are enough to avoid allergens, severe allergies and asthma require treatment with medicinal plants. One of the most important plants against asthma is the burdock.
