Allergy Enlightenment Is Modern Medicine Fighting the Causes of This Ailment? Are Doctors Telling Us Everything?
Bismillahi Rohmani Rohiym In The Name of Allah On Allergies: Is Modern Medicine Fighting the Causes of This Ailment? Are Doctors Telling Us Everything? A Case Against Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtac, and other "allergy relief" medicines and their makers together with distributors, prescribers, and blind consumers. By Mamurjon Rahimov, May 12/2004 Definition Allergies are abnormal reactions of the immune system that occur in response to otherwise harmless substances. www.ehendrick.org/healthy An allergy is a heightened sensitivity to a foreign substance (called an allergen) which causes the body's defense system (the immune system) to overreact when defending itself. Normally, the immune system would only react if a harmful substance, such as a bacteria, attacks the body. For people with allergies, their own immune system is working too hard, and it reacts even when relatively harmless substances such as pollen are present. The severity of an allergic reaction can vary from mild discomfort to life threatening situations. pollen.com Description Allergies are among the most common of medical disorders. It is estimated that 60 million Americans, or more than one in every five people, suffer from some form of allergy, with similar proportions throughout much of the rest of the world. Allergy is the single largest reason for school absence and is a major source of lost productivity in the workplace. www.ehendrick.org/healthy Wow! These dreadful allergies are going to get us! What kind of wunderkinds wrote the above paragraphs, and trying to fool everyone? Introduction I feel I have been deceived in a big way for the second time, maybe more, by the medical profession. I wonder why would doctors hide all the information about the truth on allergies and other medical knowledge, and the only explanation that comes to my mind is financial stakes behind this single largest industry in the USA - that in size leaves behind aerospace, automotive, petroleum industries, to name a few. In fact, by economic size Medical Industry is at least three times as large as the Automotive Industry of the USA! I was able to understand allergies through my conversations with friends, doctors, reading news, encyclopedias, articles and books on immune system, and most importantly - through observations of myself and those around me. Why can I understand some things in such a plain way while doctors try to keep the fog around it, and my part is only obeying to their prescriptions? Humans are like cars... ...In many ways human beings are similar to cars...Driver is like a soul, a car is like our body, and immune system resembles on board computer of the car... I have some university engineering education, so when my car has a problem, I first try to find a solution by myself before taking it to a mechanic. Someone told me that in America one should not trust three categories of people: mechanics, doctors, and politicians. Once my car lost power, and I tried to find its causes. Symptoms showed that fuel was not burning properly inside cylinders (computer diagnostics at AutoZone). I searched the causes in electrical and air system. I did an expensive tune-up, changed air filter and airflow sensor, but shortly "check engine" light came back on. Then I turned to fuel system, and mixed injector cleaner and fuel pipe cleaner with several fill-ups. Every time the light would turn off for few days, and come back on again. Finally, I came to the last thing I suspected to be the cause of the power loss - fuel filter. As soon as I replaced it (very cheap), the car became like new! It was accelerating faster than ever before, and moreover "check engine" light never came back on again! Hence, until I found the real cause of the problem - the fuel filter that was clogged with dirt over the years - my car was suffering and could not tell me what was hurting most... Chicago - a pollen
