It was a sunny December afternoon; I and my sisters were enjoying our vacations on the Goa beach! We were at the pick of our enjoyment and suddenly my sister screamed Oh my God! What is this? I have developed rashes all over my skin! She was itching horribly and we all were a little bit upset! We initially thought that she might have eaten something which she is allergic to! We rushed to the nearest local doctor and found that it was an allergy due to sunlight! That was really shocking! An allergy from sunlight! How can it be possible! But yes, it can be possible! After a thorough internet search and a lot of readings, now I can say it is possible!
Allergy is actually an exaggerated or false immune response; suddenly occurring as an indication that something wrong has happened in the body. In other words, it is the hypersensitive immune reaction to some antigens or allergens. These allergens are as such foreign substances or more precisely substances that are foreign to the bodies. They can be natural like dust, pollen, sun rays, pet dander, etc or some synthetic medications or food. It has been observed that environmental and genetic factors are responsible for such kind of hypersensitive reactions.
All of us have an intrinsic immune system as our natural defense mechanism, which avoids entry of any foreign pathogens. If by any chance, the pathogen enters in our body, a strong immune response is generated through the production of large antibodies and white blood cells, which will kill the pathogen through specific mechanisms such as phagocytosis. However, there are some harmless foreign substances such as dust or pollens, which are not capable of generating strong immune response although, can generate false responses by producing a kind of immunoglobulin known as IgE.
Stem Cell Treatment – Allergies
IgE is a kind of antibody, present in a very small amount in the body but is capable to generate a cascade of allergic reaction upon entry of some particles. This antibody can specifically recognize some allergen receptors which are in minute quantities. Upon recognition, they can be able to secrete some chemicals which are able to mediate some inflammatory reactions. These inflammatory reactions can cause symptoms, with which some of us are associated like coughing, sneezing, skin rashes, etc.
Until very recently, the healthcare sector was able to offer treatments for allergies, to reduce the symptoms! However, it would always be better to cut it out from the source and cure completely.
Stem cells treatments can be the possible hope for this. Stem cells are the youngest cells of the body, which can be able to differentiate into many desirable cell types, upon activation in the proper direction. Allergies are definitely happening due to cellular malfunction. Our immune system works on cellular communication which becomes faulty in person with some kind of allergies. These immune cells mistakenly attack substances or allergen; those are actually not threats to us. Stem cells stimulation therapy along with the injection of some growth factors can create an internal microenvironment to stop the progression of these hypersensitive reactions
Thus Doctors are suggesting a combination therapy with stem cells stimulation technology and administration of SNMC drugs to add an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effect, to completely get rid of allergies and allow you to live your life to the fullest without the fear of being allergic!
