Question: Can missing chemicals cause allergies?
|yellowwheel - Mon Jul 23, 2007 1:32 am|
<B>Condition:</B> Allergy causing bronchial swelling. Taking allergy and asthma meds, under control.
<B>Goal:</B> To become non-allergic.
<U>Medical office gave me two options.</U>
1. Immunology could help reduce need for meds.
2. Chemical supplement.
I was told missing or low level chemicals in body can cause cells to become allergic. My blood tests confirmed cells reacted allergic.
<B>Here is my question:</B>
Can a Hematologist find this missing chemical(s) in my blood? I definitely did not misunderstand. I thought they were loony when I heard this. But figured I'd get a second opinion about missing chemicals causing allergies.
Thank you in advance.

More specific, is there a such thing as chemical imbalance making cells respond allergic?
Also, can a chemical imbalance in the brain program cells to be allergic or non allergic with blood tests?

If these questions are completely false, I am sorry. I don't have experience in medicine. This all came from my doctors office and told me to do this. It is expensive to run to different doctors all the time. I just want to know if I would be wasting my time looking for chemical imbalances as a cure for allergies. I am loosing faith in my doctor.
