“Urticaria (hives) is a clinically-diagnosed disease resulting from the body’s release of histamine and other inflammatory substances, resulting in intensely itchy, raised wheals, and often edema (swelling). Approximately 20% of the general population suffers from this condition, and, in rare cases, urticaria may produce a serious systemic disease or a life-threatening allergic reaction.
Urticaria has a profound impact on the quality of life and effective treatment is, therefore, required. Traditional drug therapies, including antihistamines and corticosteroids, may potentially produce adverse drug effects, thereby decreasing patient compliance and therapy efficacy. Alternative, natural therapies are the preferred treatment option for many patients.
Current scientific research has shown that while urticaria treatment includes avoidance of triggers, but these urticaria-producing triggers can be identified in only 10 to 20 percent of patients with chronic urticaria. Further research suggests that chronic urticaria may be helped by a focused dietary history and elimination of food additives and other substances.
Gary M. Levin, M.D., a medical doctor and surgeon in the United States, has incorporated the latest scientific research and recommendations in his inexpensive e-book outlining a comprehensive, natural alternative for treating and curing chronic idiopathic urticaria and angioedema in a simple manner, easily understood by all readers. He educates readers about the disease and outlines common urticaria-causing substances.
His book offers a step-by-step approach to patients, including simple diet modifications and detailed information regarding helpful herbal supplements that can be used to alleviate the symptoms of urticaria.
Additionally, the natural therapy recommended in this book is very inexpensive and can potentially save patients from otherwise very costly drug bills!
For patients seeking an effective, natural alternative, while avoiding the common adverse effects of drug therapy, I recommend Dr. Levin’s natural approach to urticaria and angioedema treatment.
