This week, on A Different Perspective, Dr. Jason Nobles talks about allergies. What processes in the body cause them, and why might they go unnoticed for years? 

  • What are allergies? A response by our immune system. 
    • What is an immune response? All the mechanisms used by the body as protection against environmental agents (both internal and external) that are foreign to the body. These agents can be microorganisms or their chemical byproducts, foods, chemicals, drugs, pollen, animals, or abnormal cells. 
    • Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen, bee venom, pet dander, or a food that doesn’t usually cause a reaction in most people. 
    • Your immune system produces antibodies. If your immune system makes antibodies that identify an allergen as harmful, even though it isn’t, you have an allergy. When there is contact with the allergen, your immune system can overreact and inflame your skin, sinuses, airways, or digestive system. 
  • Your body’s way of dealing with allergens: 
    • Your barrier—first line of defense 
        • Hives 
        • Sinus infections 
        • Asthma 
        • Digestive tract 
      • Physical 
        • Anything you put on your skin will get absorbed. 
        • Respiratory  
        • GI 
        • Genito urinary 
        • Nose and pharynx 
      • Chemical 
      • Biological 
    • Innate immune system 
    • Acquired immune system: 
      • Not present at birth 
      • Develops in response to an infection. 

How the immune system works 

  • Cops and robbers 
    • Toxins, bacteria, viruses, or food—robbers 
    • Macrophage or dendritic cell—cop 
  • Too many robbers, and the cops call backup—T-helper cell (CD4) 
    • Backup calls in others 
    • Cytotoxic cells 
    • T suppressor cells 
    • B cells 
    • Natural killer cells 
  • B cells produce antibodies, which are the search parties afterward. 
  • Immunity is a legal term—it doesn’t exist in biology. 
  • What happens if you get the same infection more than once? Your immune system and barriers are down, and you’re allowing it to get in, which is going to be a constant tax on your immune system. 

What is an antibody? 

  • An antibody is a class of proteins called an immunoglobin, made by specialized white blood cells to identify and neutralize material foreign to an immune system. Shaped like a “Y”, antibodies contain a highly variable region in their fork, allowing the immune system to tailor its response to countless threats. 
  • They are specific for one thing—For example, apples, pears, garlic, pepper, COVID, etc. 
    • Different kinds of antibody 
      • IgG—previous invasion 
      • IgA—first line of defense (barriers) 
      • IgM—active infection 
      • IgE—epi-pen (0.03%) 
    • 4 types of hypersensitivity  
      • Type 1: IgE; Immediate 
      • Type 2: IgG and IgM; Cytotoxic 
      • Type 3: IgG, IgA, IgM; Immune complex 
      • Type 4: T cells and macrophages; cell-mediated / delayed. 
  • This is why “Oh, I never get sick” isn’t good, especially for kids.

This week, on A Different Perspective, Dr. Jason Nobles talks about Albizia. How does it help ease the symptoms of allergies, and why is the goal to not need to use it forever? 

What does it do? 

It’s designed to bridge the gap until you don’t need it.

This week, Dr. Jason Nobles wraps up A Different Perspective by talking about the causes of allergies, and how they impact the end result of the situation. 

  • If you do not remove the cause, don’t expect to heal. 
  • You can’t out-supplement bad habits. 
  • Why do you have that allergy?
