Autoimmune reactions to Keratin and smoothing treatments
Points to consider:
- antigen-Google.com describes an antigen as-a toxin or other foreign substance which induces an immune response in the body, especially the production of antibodies.
- allergen–a substance that causes an allergic reaction.
I want you to understand that although you may have received the treatment once or twice before, the second exposure-can be the catalyst that stimulates the reaction. An autoimmune reaction as described by Google.com is, “An autoimmune reaction occurs when the body mistakenly signals antibodies and immune cells to attack the body’s own healthy tissues. … To treat autoimmune reactions, therapies should focus on suppressing the immune system to allow for tissues and cells to recover from the damage created by the immune system.”
Want to know how to deal with it naturally? My advice is:
- Detoxify your body!!!! You must get the toxin, allergen and antigen as soon as possible so you can feel better.
- glutathione-(Glutathione is an antioxidant in plants, animals, fungi, and some bacteria and archaea. Glutathione is capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides, and heavy metals.)this helps your liver by stimulating the detoxifying process sending it to your “waste central**.”
- chlorophyll-chlorella is contained within Chlorophyll. This amazing mineral is contained in rick dark leafy greens and sea greens; a green pigment, present in all green plants and in cyanobacteria, responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis. Its molecule contains a magnesium atom held in a porphyrin ring.
- Here’s some of my “heavy-hitters” to detoxify when problems persist———->>>>
detox teas-teas are great if powders and potions and veggie caps aren’t your thing, clean and clear out and support your liver with tea and bentonite clay. The bentonite clay pulls toxicity from your body.
"Various studies suggest that bentonite clay may reduce the effects of toxins. For example, a study on chicks found that bentonite clay reduced the effects of a toxin called aflatoxin B1, which comes from certain types of mold. Chicks that received a concentrated bentonite clay product had fewer toxic effects than those who did not receive the clay. Another studyTrusted Source looked at the effects of montmorillonite clay, which is very similar to bentonite clay, on reducing toxins in children in Ghana, West Africa. In the study area, aflatoxins in homemade nutritional supplements are linked with poor growth and related disabilities. The researchers found that children who received a calcium montmorillonite clay product each day for 2 weeks had fewer signs of aflatoxins in their urine than those who did not receive it."

**Waste Central-this is through your small and large intestine
Also, I need you to poop it out! This assists in removing toxins from the bowel and to help you regain your immunity as immunity begins in the bowel—–> Cascara Segrada tabs
Next are Anti-inflammatories!!!! The natural remedies I recommend are as follows: ginger, cinnamon, green tea, tumeric/curcumin lavender oils from any hives or tender areas
My next best remedy is OPC3 by Isotonix- This helps to reduce the mast cell response due to the immune exposure. Mast cells mediate inflammatory responses such as hypersensitivity and allergic reactions. … Upon stimulation by an allergen, the mast cells release the contents of their granules (a process called degranulation) into the surrounding tissues. (https://www.britannica.com/science/mast-cell)
Isotonix OPC-3® https://www.hairlosscenternj.com/product/opc3-resveratrol-pycnogenol-blend/ is an isotonic-capable food supplement that is made from a combination of bilberry, grape seed, red wine and pine bark extracts, and citrus extract bioflavonoids, all found to be powerful antioxidants. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are bioflavonoids (complex organic plant compounds) found in fruits, vegetables and certain tree barks that provide exceptional nutritional benefits to the human body. Studies have shown OPCs to be up to 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals. Isotonix OPC-3 contains the only isotonic form of Pycnogenol® in the world. Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree and the most clinically researched and potent bioflavonoid.* Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state. Isotonix® dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.
Finally, there’s super ORAC. This helps reduce the oxidative cell process or apoptosis or ‘cell death.’ This is why people generally feel, ‘awful’ after an auto-immune or an allergic reaction. Mast cells release histamine as a protection but as the same time…cells are being exposed to free radical damage. For my clients with allergies or ones who suffer hay fever and hives, and wish to assist, naturally without the damagge to the liver…….this is my ‘heavy-hitter.’ >https://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/super-orac-antioxidant-90-caps/808
Lastly, benadryl (diphenhydramine) may assist your needs as well. I hope these suggestions have helped you by finding a natural solution to solve your issue.
In addition to the above, your physician may recommend steroidal treatments to reduce the inflammation within the body and to make you feel better, quickly. My only issue is what happens to the body while ingesting medications. The body has the burden of detoxifying the steroid, reduce the immune response and also buffering the medication by drawing calcium from your bones and by altering the calcium balance to normalize your acidity.
This post is to assist you in handling it with natural remedies. I hope this helps!
