Chinese medical theory says that phlegm and mucus is produced in the digestive tract and it is stored in the respiratory tract. So when it comes to allergies, any pathological or excess production a phlegm or mucus implies an inherent weakness of digestion.
This is an important perspective to keep in mind when treating allergies, the first order of business is to strengthen digestion to reduce the production of phlegm and in doing so we increase the body’s resistance to allergens in the first place.
Anyone who suffers from allergies can immediately improve their symptoms by eliminating foods that have mucus forming properties such as dairy products, along with excessive consumption of oils and fats. Also reducing or eliminating foods that weaken digestion such as, excessive amounts of sugar, cold and raw foods as well as coffee, tea and alcohol.
