The immune system can be hampered and this makes way for the allergies to occur. When we come in contact with certain natural substances, like chemicals or foods, an allergy might happen. It occurs when we make physical contact, inhale or ingest these natural substances. Immune system decides which of the natural substances is essential and which is not, and those which are not are treated as foreign body. If this happens, antibodies are developed by the immune system (they are called histamines) and they are the weapons for battling these foreign bodies. Antibodies degeneration in the body system is caused by the proteins found in the pollen, dust or foods. Additional problems, such as inflammatory reactions and affected lungs, organs, mucous membranes and tissue will happen as well.
