4. Correcting the Th1 / Th2

In reality, there is no way that we can escape from our environment that is so filled with estrogen. If you really wanted to, you can always go to Tahiti in the South Pacific, throw away all your plastic ware, and grow your own pesticide-free foods. This, however, obviously is impossible to do without a lot of money and time. In the future it is possible that the environment will change from an estrogen-dominated one and will stabilize again, and, in fact, we should start making the world this way. However, to cure AD right now, you must restore the balance of the lymph cells.

Currently, researchers all over the world are desperately trying to find a cure for AD. The result of their research is the dendritic cell (DC). This cell plays a major part in differentiating an anaplastic T cell into Th1 and Th2 cells through variou stimuli. If the process of differentiating the Th1 and Th2 cells becomes clear, there may be a permanent cure to allergies. However, nobody has yet accomplished this discovery, and for now other measures have to be taken instead.

1. Omega 3unsaturated fatty acid
Flax seed and Chia (or flax seed oil or chia seed oil) should be used for this as well. Prostaglandin E2, a compound metabolized from arachidonic acid, has the function of differentiating anaplastic T cells to Th2 cells. The type omega 3 fats can stop the effects of arachidonic acid, and this is why flax seed and chia seed are effective in treating allergy patients. Flax seed and chia are the greatest healing supplements that nature has given us.

2. Natto, yogurt and kimichi
This means that you should eat natto (fermented soybeans) and yogurt. Natto is a food that Japanese people have been familiar with for a long time, and has amazing health effects. Numerous experiments have proven that natto can stabilize the balance between Th1 and Th2 cells and can alleviate allergy symptoms. It also has lots of Vitamin B, B2 in particular, and as explained in section 9, “Important Supplements”, it is great for AD patients. However, those who have strong soybean allergies should not eat natto. Although natto is fermented, and should not cause any problems, there are still some people who react badly to natto.

I will also elaborate on lactic acid bacteria in section 9, but it is important to be aware of the kind of bacteria when you buy yogurt. Also, specialists do not agree upon the definitions of these bacteria, and while some differentiate lactic acid bacteria from bifidobacteria, some claim that bifidobacteria are a type of lactic acid bacteria. Either way, it is better to avoid eating yogurts containing bifidobacteria since it consumes biotin, a vitamin that is important in treating AD. It is, however, recommended that you eat yogurts containing lactobacillus abcterias, and lactobacilus paracasein or lactobacillus acidophilius in particular.

  Dr. Bijorgsten from Sweden reported that children with more lactobacillus acid tended to not develop allergies. Lactobacillus bacteria, a type of gram positive bacteria, stimulates Th1 cells so that the balance between Th1 and Th2 becomes normal.

Also, vegetables pickled in bran and kimchi (Korean pickles) contain many different kinds of lactic acid bacteria, but contain lactic acid bacilli the most, and is very good for treating AD. It is said that young mothers in Korea do not make kimchi as much anymore, and there AD is increasing becoming a common disease. It may be that the decreased consumption of kimchi among young people is one the causes of AD becoming so common.

3. Mushrooms
Mushrooms will correct the balance between Th1 and Th2. Also, the extracts of bamboo leaves, fucoidan, chitin/chitosan have the same effect. These all have high-molecular polysaccharides, such as β-glucan and polysaccharide sulfate, in their cell membrane. These will help the immune system. Although these are sold as suplements, they are very expensive.

If you are going to take mushrooms that are also traditional oriental medicines, it will need to be brewed for a long time so it becomes safe. If you cannot buy the expensive mushroom supplements, buy cheap shiitake, shimeji, eringi, maitake, or kikurage (Juda’s ear) mushrooms are your local supermarket. These need to be brewed for a long time like traditional oriental medicines. Dried mushrooms, in particular, contain lots of Vitamin D, and should be used to make broth.
