Allergy, how it manifests and what to take

Allergia, come si manifesta e cosa prendere

Spring for many means allergies.

The most common allergy symptoms are: watery eyes; sneezing; itchy nose and eyes; a runny nose; congestion of the nasal mucosa; respiratory fatigue including asthma and cough.
To understand if it is a cold or an allergy, remember that colds are viral in origin. On the contrary, those of allergic origin make the nose itch, make you sneeze repeatedly, cough and make your eyes red.
If you want to understand what causes it, you can do the Alex test which allows you to establish up to 300 respiratory and food allergies. Allergy should not be underestimated because, in violent cases, i.e. when one comes into contact with the substance or plant that causes the allergy, the allergic manifestation can 'explode and progress' in a few minutes and lead to anaphylactic shock or anaphylaxis, treatable only in hospital with antihistamines or in severe cases, with adrenaline.
If you are among those who already know that every spring plant such as grasses, birches, cypresses and creeping nettles or others will make you hate nature, this advice is to help your body be ready for this impact, thus avoiding using synthetic medicines to alleviate the unpleasant symptom.
In this article you will find what to do, what to take and how to naturally cure your allergy, all with a medicinal mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 4000 years.
It is called Ganoderma Lucidum or Reishi or Lingzhi and it grows on our centuries-old oak trees, at Sant'Egle, in the Tuscan Maremma.
Ganoderma lucidum is a powerful immunomodulator that enhances the immune response at all levels and promotes the restoration of balance altered by external factors or degenerative pathologies. It has the ability to modulate the body's defense response and induces the proliferation of all the cells responsible for direct action against pathogens.
Reishi is an excellent remedy for allergic diseases because it manages to stop the production of pathological antibodies. It also has anti-inflammatory action with the reduction of allergic symptoms and inhibits the production of histamine. Four antihistamine compounds and an active ingredient with an action very similar to hydrocortisone have been isolated from the mushroom. Pharmacological studies have verified that the anti-inflammatory action of 5 mg of hydrocortisone has similar effects to 50 mg of mushroom. Scientific studies have demonstrated positive results in the case of allergic rhinitis and dermatitis, asthma and autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune thyroid.
Reishi can be used both in the preventive and acute phases of allergies.

Specifically, inside there are several natural active ingredients:
Ganoderic acids C and D have an antihistamine action, i.e. they prevent histamine from binding to the receptor, reducing the typical symptoms of allergy.

Cycloctosulfide and Oleic Acid interact with membrane proteins to prevent calcium absorption, thus blocking the release of histamine from white blood cells.

Soluble beta-glucans which, absorbed at the intestinal level, reach the lymphatic and blood system where they interact with macrophages, modulating their activity.

Insoluble beta-glucans increase the intestinal bacterial flora, protecting its walls and reducing inflammation.
Triterpenes which have a similar action to cortisone. Several studies conducted on mice show an anti-inflammatory action, blocking NFKB (pro-inflammatory transcription factor) and inflammasome assembly.

For these active ingredients it reduces and eliminates pathological antibodies and IgE.
Contains terpenoids, which have powerful cortisone-like anti-inflammatory properties.
It has an interesting antihistamine action thanks to the presence of ganoderic acids C1, C2 and D, cyclo-eight-sulphide and oleic acid, isolated and discovered for the first time in 1988 by the Japanese pharmacologist Kenji Tasaka of Okayama University ( Tasaka, 1988a and 1988b).
We always recommend consulting with your trusted doctor.
