Allergies (both seasonal and food) are an epidemic that are sweeping the modern world, and it’s no coincidence. With our increased exposure to substances and lifestyles that overburden our immune system, more and more adults and children are living with chronic allergies that can significantly impact their health and quality of life.
At CentreSpringMD, we take a holistic, integrative approach to help you identify allergens and manage your allergy symptoms. For some, allergy symptoms include the typical runny nose and itchy eyes, but others experience hidden symptoms like fatigue, skin rashes, or brain fog. Our integrative team is dedicated to improving the symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities by rebuilding the gut, strengthening the immune system, and prescribing the most effective diet.
Common food allergens include: dairy, egg, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, fish. Environmental allergens may include: tree or grass pollen, ragweed, pet dander, mold, dust mites.

The Integrative Approach to Allergies and Food Sensitivities
Treating and providing remedies for allergies using functional medicine first involves reducing exposure to the allergen(s) as much as possible, and addressing your body’s immune response. There are three key factors that control how sensitive your immune system is to allergens:
- Environmental exposure
- Diet & lifestyle
- Gut function
Changes in the above—combined with genetics—regulate immune cells that control your allergic and inflammatory response. To treat and provide remedies for allergies, your integrative medical team may begin with clinical laboratory testing, followed by specific supplementation, and steps to calm your immune system.
People with allergies often suffer from nutritional deficiencies and may need targeted supplementation to improve immune balance.
