    How is you body handling daily stresses?  Allergies are a type of stress that our body may have difficulty processing.  Allergic reponses can show up in the gut, in breathing, or with inflamed skin.  These reactions can start when you are young or as you get older.  Your personal allergies are one of the top 10 measures you should know in order to promote increased quality of life and longevity.

Join local nutritionist Noel Aldrich to learn how your body successfully handles allergies and what do to when it is not.
