Treatment of Allergic Reactions (a novel drug free approach)


When a foreign body tries to invade our system. Our immune system makes antibodies like IgG, IgM, IgA to effectively combat the invading antigens. Sometimes, people make IgE antibody, unlike IgG, A and M antibodies which circulate in the blood, IgE antibody binds to the surface of mast cells in the airway passages, nasal cavity, bronchial tubes and other tissues such as skin.

When an allergen in the form of pollen or dust binds with IgE, mast cell-bound antibodies, this triggers an allergic reaction. During this allergic reaction mast cells disrupt causing the release of histamine and other inflammatory substances. Thus, leading to symptoms of breathing difficulties, skin eruptions with localised inflammation.

The switch from production of normal or beneficial antibodies IgG, M and A to IgE antibody is regulated by IL-10 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine.  Cytokines are small secreted protein molecules released by cells have a specific effect on the interactions and communications between cells. Cytokines types include pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine. Cytokines produced by IL-10 activation are anti-inflammatory in nature.

Homeovitality has developed a Sequence Specific Homeopathic DNA (SSHD) product to upregulate the efficiency of IL-10 gene, to increase the production of IgE antibody, consequently to reduce and subside the allergic reaction.

It has been recently discovered that IL-10 can even suppress the formation of mast cells [1]. In fact, the positive effects of asthma drugs such as triamcinolone and montelukast are considered to be due to their ability to increase IL-10 production [2].

It has been found reduced activity of IL-10 gene is associated with susceptibility to the development of psoriasis. This fact was demonstrated by Dr. Asadullah and colleagues at Humboldt University in Germany [3].  In their paper authors say “Our investigations demonstrate the major importance of IL-10 in psoriasis and show that IL-10 administration represents a new therapeutic approach.” In the same paper, authors have also pointed out the usefulness of IL-10 in the treatment of other diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

IL-10 also has important pain relief properties and has been shown to counteract depression [4].

One of the most common forms of alopecia which affect both men and women is due to an auto-immune process which attacks hair follicles. The immune-suppressive and anti-inflammatory properties of IL-10 are recognised as useful treatments for this disorder [5][6].

Use of Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) as a Prophylactic in Coronavirus


Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for human beings. Our bodies cannot make vitamin C, therefore we always have to fulfil our need of vitamin C from other sources, such as green leafy vegetables, berries, guavas, citrus fruits, tomatoes, melons, papayas, kiwi, bell peppers, broccoli, kale or from supplement form of vitamin C etc.

Coronavirus


Coronaviruses are a family of viruses which cause viral infections in animals or among humans.  In humans, coronaviruses are known to cause viral infections ranging from the common cold to respiratory infections and more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus in Wuhan China causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

Diabetes Type 2


Diabetes type 2 also known as diabetes mellitus, is a disease when either patient’s body cannot make enough insulin or body cells do not react to insulin (also known as insulin resistance). Diabetes type 2 is part of metabolic syndrome, that can increase the chances of a patient suffering from diabetes type 2, to have other disease conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.

Pain & More Pain – Arthritis


It is said no pain no gain. But this is not true in case of arthritis. Arthritis patient suffers painful episodes in a miserable way. There are 100 different forms of arthritis but two major types are Osteoarthritis (OA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), other common forms include fibromyalgia, gout and psoriatic arthritis etc. All forms of arthritis can cause pain in different ways.

Natural Fertility Aid for Him & for Her


To have offspring is a natural desire among all living beings. In the United Kingdom, 1 in 7 couples may have difficulty in conceiving [1]. In the United States, according to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), 10% of women between the ages of 15 – 44 years have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by fertility problems in women, and another one-third of fertility problems are due to fertility problems in men. The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by problems that cannot be determined [2].

Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA) – Aluminium in Vaccines


In 2011, a new syndrome termed ASIA was defined pointing to the spectrum of the immune-mediated diseases triggered by an adjuvant stimulus. There are many different kinds of adjuvants, such as mercury, aluminium, as well as infectious components that may also have an adjuvant effect.
