Allergies: Causes, Reaction and Remedies by Using Aller-Sine
What are Allergies and Why Do We Experience Them?
Allergies are abnormal or hypersensitive responses of the Immune System to relatively harmless environmental
antigens (substance which causes the allergy).
In general, there are two broad types of Allergies:
1. Allergy caused by excess IgE Antibodies (Type I): Most immediate allergic reactions involve antigen-antibody
reactions, mainly with the antibody protein, “IgE.”
Allergic individuals who experience moderate to severe allergy problems may have higher than normal levels
of serum IgE and an increased number of high affinity IgE/Fc-Receptors (the actual docking sites of IgE)
on their basophils (located in the blood supply) and mast cells (within the connective tissue, generally
located immediately outside the small blood vessels).
Thus, the more IgE and IgE/Fc-Receptors a person has, the more probable the allergic reaction, and the more
severe that reaction will be. In these cases, the reacting IgE antibodies have a peculiar attraction to bind
to IgE/Fc-Receptor sites on mast cells and basophils, which in turn are responsible for releasing Histamines
and other inflammatory substances into the body, creating the many allergic reactions with which we are all
Specifically, with the occurrence of an antigen (allergen) reacting or binding to IgE antibodies, the IgE
antigen-antibody molecule then “docks” on the Fc-Receptors of mast cells and basophils, causing
IgE cross-linking and subsequent receptor clustering on the cell membrane.
This docking, in turn, causes an immediate change in the membrane of the mast cell or basophils, either causing
it to rupture (called cell granulation) or simply secrete a torrent of pharmacologically active substances
including Histamine, 5-Hydroxytryptamine (Serotonin) and other inflammatory substances into the bloodstream,
all of which cause the known allergic reactions we hate.
2. Allergy caused by Over-Activated T-Cells (Type II): Most other allergic reactions (delayed-reaction allergies)
are caused by the over-activation of T-Cells (helper cells and cytotoxic “killer”cells, in particular)
and not by IgE antibodies themselves.
Examples of this type of allergy are that of the skin’s eruption caused by the toxins in poison ivy or a bee
sting, asthmatic attacks when muscle spasms result from the case of some air-borne antigens, or even the
allergic reaction one may experience from vaccines.
On repeated exposure to these antigens, activated “killer” T-Cells are formed. Then, on subsequent
exposure to the toxin, these T-Cells move into affected tissues to respond, eliciting a cell-mediated type
of immune reaction which may cause more damage to surrounding tissue than the original toxin/antigen did.
This is because over-activated “killer” T-Cells can kill normal body cells in these reactions,
and cause basophil and mast cell rupturing.
In all cases of allergy (Type I and II), however, Histamines and cytotoxic substances are released from mast
cells and basophils which result in the typical allergic responses.
What Happens When Histamine is Released into My Body?
Histamine is a neurotransmitter which directly causes a biphasic response of vasoconstriction followed by
peripheral vessel dilation. The release of Histamine has a wide range of effects, which include capillary
dilatation, contraction of smooth muscle, increased gastric acid secretion, and acceleration of heart rate.
How Does Aller-Sine Specifically Work?
DL-Methionine, L-Lysine, Bioflavonoids in white pine bark, and other micro-nutritionals within Aller-Sine
help the body stabilize mast cell and basophil integrity by naturally regulating the sensitivity of IgE,
and perhaps even the number of IgE that the body makes, keeping the histamines and cytoxic substances from
being released into the body.
Micro-Nutritionals in Aller-Sine also
act to stimulate the adrenals and thyroid while redirecting and strengthening the immune and lymphatic responses,
and to help the body naturally regulate adrenal production of cortocosteroids which exhibit immunosuppressive
(T-Cell management) and anti-inflammatory activity.
Cortocosteroids are thought to act chiefly by blocking the release of cytokines (intercellular signals, usually
protein or glycoprotein, involved in the regulation of cellular proliferation and function) from activated
mononuclear phagocytes and mast cells, and possibly also by the direct lysis of immature T-Cells, thus affecting
mast cell stability and the subsequent release of unwanted histamines.
Methionine is also the most commonly used amino acid (codon=AUG) which initiates protein synthesis from mRNA-DNA
transcription and decoding. Thus, when Methionine stores are in scant supply, protein synthesis is delayed,
directly interfering with Corticosteroid production, which, because of these molecules’ immunosuppressive
and anti-inflammatory activities, may in turn exacerbate any ongoing allergic reaction within the body.
With ample supplies of DL-Methionine, as provided by Aller-Sine, the adrenals can increase natural steroid
production and maintain corticosteroid populations, thus keeping in check the Immune System’s sensitivities
to foreign bodies, as well as getting rid of any rogue T-Cells, which could inappropriately sound the alarm
and cause an unneeded allergic response. Thus, Aller-Sine addresses all the known problems of allergies (Type
I & II), providing fast relief without the side-effects of drowsiness, lethargy or sleepiness associated
with most other products.

Eating Right Helps Build a Healthy Immune Response
Some individuals suggest eating honey and bee pollen can also help the body build its immune response. Find a raw and natural local
honey with bee pollen and take a small amount several times a day to help
strengthen the immune system to handle allergens in your local area. However, please read Dr. Leia’s advice on taking bee products prior to making this a health regime.
