Clinic Notice Board

  • Allergy Prevention starts with a healthy gut
     Recent evidence from clinical studies around the world show that allergies are either switched on or off within the first year of life. The gut lymphatic system is the first immune organ to be stimulated and cause allergies. Having healthy intestinal microflora and “good bugs” are pivotal. Being born vaginally colonises the infants bowel with "good bugs", and prevent allergies, while Caesarean section babies miss out on this inoculation. Antibiotic usage in late pregnancy and whilst breast feeding also messes up the natural bowel flora and promotes infantile allergies. Breastfeeding provides essential micronutrients that encourage the growth of natural flora, further switching off allergies such as eczema, asthma and food allergies. Clinical and Experimental Allergy: March 2015; 632-641. (Infant gut microbiota and food sensitisation: associations in the first year of life – Azad et al)
