Allergard (MA1788)

Enjoy an allergy-free year with Maharishi AyurVedaAllergies — get to the root of the problem


Supports ones ability to respond appropriately to allergens by cleansing toxins from the body and supporting liver function


According to Maharishi AyurVeda, if the body’s innate intelligence becomes clouded by the accumulation of toxins (ama) it can become sensitive to allergens. Allergard provides a holistic, one-two solution. It helps eliminate toxins that inhibit the body’s natural defences and supports the body's natural resistance to allergens. With Allergard you get a natural, long-term solution – enlivening the body’s inner intelligence.

The herbs in Allergard help:


  • Support digestion and cleansing
  • Reduce improperly digested impurities (Ama)
  • Boost cellular nutrition and performance

Herbal Masterpiece


The herbs in Allergard are combined in exact proportions and prepared in the traditional Ayurvedic way. This improves bioavailability and assimilation of vital nutrients. It also creates synergy -- the collective benefit is much greater than isolated, individual herbs:

  • Holy Basil is renowned for its support of natural resistance.
  • Abhraka Bhasma is revered for rejuvenation. It takes over six months to prepare, even with our advanced, custom-designed processing equipment. It is a special kind of mica that has a high silica content. It’s heated and reheated over 100 times to enhance bioavailability and potency.

What is an allergyEnjoy an allergy-free year with Maharishi AyurVeda


Most of us rejoice when the cold of winter gives way to spring. Yet a large percentage of the population cringe when they see flowers start to bloom, as they know they will soon be experiencing spring allergies.

Surveys show that allergy rates are increasing worldwide and will affect 30-35% of us at some stage of our lives. These increases, which were initially found in Europe and USA, are now being found in all countries undergoing industrial development. Allergy patterns have changed over time. In previous decades, allergy problems were mostly associated with asthma and hay fever. In more recent years there has been a significant increase in the incidence of food allergies, particularly amongst children. In the UK, up to 50% of children are diagnosed with an allergic condition.

What is an allergy


An allergy is classified as an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune disease our immune system, which protects us from dangers, such as bacteria and viruses, now treats harmless substances, such as food, pollen, or dust mites, as a threat and produces an inappropriate, exaggerated response. Those researching into the causes of allergies have postulated the following:

  • Our gut bacteria (microbiota), which we have inherited over many thousands of years, has a very important role in our immune system. The increased use of antibiotics, at earlier and earlier stages of a child’s life, can cause radical changes in gut bacteria and has been strongly implicated in the unprecedented increase in allergies within children.
  • Some scientists have proposed the ‘hygiene hypothesis’ – a child raised in an environment devoid of dirt and germs, and given antibiotics and vaccines that kill beneficial bacteria in their gut, is less able to build up natural resistance to disease. As a result, they become vulnerable to illnesses, such as allergies later in life.
  • Low vitamin D levels are associated with allergies. Sunshine is the best source vitamin D and children who spend too much time indoors are often lacking in this vitamin.
  • Chemicals found in perfumes, cosmetics, paints, carpets and fabrics, car fumes, and industrial pollution can all increase our toxic load and lead to inappropriate immune responses. Doctors usually ask sufferers to avoid the allergens that cause a reaction. Allergy shots and antihistamines are often prescribed, but both can cause harmful side effects and reactions, which can complicate the situation.

Maharishi AyurVeda’s take on springtime allergiesMaharishi AyurVeda’s take on springtime allergies


It is traditionally during spring that allergies proliferate and Ayurveda give a good reason why this is the case. According to Ayurveda, as the temperature rises during springtime, Ama (digestive impurities) that has built up inside our body during the cold weather, starts to liquefy. The liquefaction process gives our cells and tissues the chance to push out any unwanted material. This toxic Ama flows into, and gradually clogs up, our body-channels (Shrotas). When our Shrotas are blocked, they are hampered in their ability to either delivered nutrient to our cells or remove waste material.

The result is that our body’s immune systems become overwhelmed. And it just so happens that during springtime flowers burst into bloom and fill the air with pollen. So, at the same time that our body’s defences are being challenged, potential allergens in the environment are increasing. The result is an increased incidence of allergies during spring. In respiratory allergies, a sub-dosha of Kapha (our body’s structuring element), called Shleshaka Kapha, is involved.

Shleshaka Kapha is responsible for maintaining moisture in the upper respiratory tract. As Ama in the body starts melting, it combines with Shleshaka Kapha. This forms a thick, sticky form of Ama called Shleshma, which gradually fills the sinus cavities and the respiratory tract. As a result our respiratory system can becomes a fertile ground for breeding bacteria and viruses. This is why many allergies can go on to create secondary sinus and respiratory problems.

How do you improve your bodys resistance to allergens?How do you improve your bodys resistance to allergens?


Maharishi AyurVeda’s solution is to deal with the underlying causes of allergies and to help your immune system effectively withstand them. This can only happen when you enliven your body’s natural resistance. Ayurveda see allergens, such as plants, pollen, chemicals or food, as only indirect implicated. The real cause occurs when digestive impurities, called Ama, accumulate in your body and interfere with these defences.

For example, when Ama builds up in the skin, exposure to otherwise harmless substances, such as sesame oil, can cause rashes or irritation. When an allergen is breathed in Ama, accumulated in the lungs, can react with it and cause breathing problems. Ama interferes with the proper function of our cells and with our defence system. The solution is to maintain your body’s purification system, so that it is more effective at eliminating toxins.

Spices

Research has found that spices can help maintain resistance to plant-induced allergies.

  • Turmeric contains curcumin, which acts as a decongestant. It also has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-bacterial properties.
  • Cumin, Coriander, Red Pepper and Sage are known to maintain resistance to allergies.
  • A tasty way of incorporating some of these valuable spices into your diet is by sautéing ground turmeric, cumin and coriander in ghee, until their flavours are released. Add seasonal vegetables to this mix and cover and cook with a little water and salt.

Kapha-Pitta pacifying diet

Disturbances in both the Kapha (structuring) and the Pitta (transforming) Doshas are involved in allergies, especially during spring. Both a Kapha and a Pitta pacifying diet will help maintain balance at this time of year. Sprinkling Pitta Churna spice blend on your lunch, and drinking Pitta Tea, helps keep Pitta Dosha in balance at mid-day, when Pitta is at its highest level. To counteract sluggish digestion and congestion Kapha Churna and Kapha Tea are useful in the morning and evening when Kapha is highest. It is also especially important to pacify Kapha during the Kapha season (spring).

Allergard (MA1788)

Allergard supports your body’s natural resistance to allergens. It helps your body avoid toxic reactions, it reduces the toxic Ama that lead to reactions with allergens, it supports digestion, it helps decrease sensitivity and it help nourish liver functioning.
