My allergens were caused by candida, parasites, my lymphatic system & kidneys not filtering. I suggest following Dr. Robert Morse. This one kept me sick for almost 40 yrs thinking I had allergies & asthma. It's all about keeping us sick for profit! Do your own research being your own health care...more
