Allergies can affect virtually every part of the body: every organ, system, hormone, acid and base levels. Allergies are the result of your immune system attacking an everyday substance or the body itself. Allergies have an enormous impact on the brain and central nervous system and can cause disruptions in the way these systems develop. It has been found that there is a relationship between allergies and learning behaviors and diagnosis.
