If your answer is an emphatic YES, then you are one of the 35 million Americans who dread the change of seasons each year. When allergy-sensitive individuals encounter the pollen from plants, their immune systems quickly go into attack mode, protecting the body with an inflammatory response in the nasal passages. It is this inflammation that causes the notoriously uncomfortable allergy symptoms - sneezing, runny rose, itchy eyes, and congestion.
What is Heartburn?
There are many types of heartburn, but most commonly the acid burning feeling is part of a condition known as GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). This is caused by stomach acid building up in the stomach and refluxing or moving up into the esophagus, irritating the esophageal lining. This can cause burning, an acid taste in the mouth, coughing, wheezing, hoarseness, ulcers, cancer and/or pain.
GERD is a chronic problem.
Dairy products can contribute to heart disease
• Whole milk dairy products are very high in cholesteroI'. Your body does not need all of this cholesterol because the liver is designed to make it for you. When you combine the large amount of cholesterol that whole milk has with the large amount of sugar (lactose) that whole milk has, your body responds by absorbing the fats and cholesterol into the bloodstream. This causes plaque' to form on the artery walls and occlusions of these arteries begin to form.
