The allergic reaction that characterizes it is stimulated and induced by pollens that possess peculiar characteristics: harmless for most of the subjects but cause of allergy for a small part of the population.
The pollen grains, which are deposited on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, quickly release their contents: where there are some components with allergenic activity, and where the subject is an allergopathic towards these substances, an interaction between the pollen allergens will trigger. and IgE present on the surface of mast cells.
The immune system intervenes accordingly, with the liberation and production of pro-inflammatory chemical mediators. The result is the onset of an inflammatory process in the respiratory tract, with the consequent appearance of symptoms such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis, cough, bronchial asthma, etc. The percentage of people affected by allergies and sensitization is constantly increasing. Some scholars attribute the cause, in addition to air pollution, food, water, even drug poisoning and the indiscriminate use of vaccinations: allergic reactions from pollens generally occur in spring and last several months.
The hay fever is a particular affection of the nasal mucosa, the eyes and the upper airways with consequent phlegm and asthma, caused by contact, by inhalation with the pollens of the plants. Symptoms arise as soon as irritation has occurred, with burning and itching of the nose, frequent and accelerated sneezing, profuse secretion, conjunctivitis, catarrhal syndrome and sometimes spread of the process to the larynx, trachea and bronchi.
Nature can help us with some remedies used by many patients with positive results:
Ribes Nigrum macerate glyceric 1 DH : anti-inflammatory (with effect similar to cortisone, but without the same profile of toxicity), antihistamine and analgesic.
Traditional use: its activity is exercised at the level of the bark of the adrenal glands and stimulates the secretion of substances with anti-inflammatory action. it can be used against hay fever, conjunctivitis and allergic bronchitis.
Rock partridge eggs :
The rock partridge (Alectoris graeca) is a bird of the Fasianidae family, whose eggs have an effective activity against the various forms of allergy
In the patients of "hay fever" treated with freeze-dried rock partridge eggs the IgE rate (ie the rate of antibodies involved in the allergic reaction) decreases; as well as the number of eosinophils (blood cells whose number is high among allergy sufferers).
The rock partridge eggs are a valuable aid in pollinosis and allergic reactions of various kinds such as: hives, skin rash, pruritus, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis
The lyophilized Coturnice eggs stimulate the production of antibodies, exerting antihistamine activity, to be attributed to the presence of a glycoprotein capable of deactivating the allergen, ie the substance likely to induce an allergic reaction in the body. Rich in minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, and peptides, the eggs exert an invigorating influence on the metabolism, improving the general state of health.
Recent studies have shown that they are a food of choice for the sharp decrease in sensitivity to the action of pollinosis or hay fever: in many cases the resistance to the sensitizing action of the pollens has been total. Excluding the possibility of cross-allergic disease among allergic to eggs, there is no secondary effect and therefore no contraindication to take the eggs of rock partridge.
