Father of Clinical Ecology, Theron Randolph, a physician, allergist, and researcher – during the 20th century – studied the effects of environmental allergens, chemical sensitivities, and food allergies.
According to Randolph’s research, “Approximately 90% of people have some kind of allergy or sensitivity.” He estimated that 9 out of 10 people have food sensitivities and don’t realize that their symptoms are related to the food they’re eating on a daily basis.
Symptoms of allergies may show up as watery eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat, sneezing, and even trouble breathing.
Sensitivities to foods and environmental substances have also been linked to anxiety, depression, joint pain, asthma, acne, bad breath, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, brain fog, hyperactivity, puffy eyes and face, and even stubborn to lose weight.
Thankfully certain essential oils can offer a natural, safe and effective way to help you rid yourself of the problem.
