Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Allergies are incredibly commonplace in America these days.

Ayurveda also details specific food combinations to avoid in order to prevent the development of allergies from allergens lodged in the gut. In this article, Dr. Hall details some of the key reasons that people are allergic to common foods like dairy and soy. She notes that the pasteurization and overprocessing of foods significantly contributes to these allergies and can be reduced or avoided with an Ayurvedic diet. Namaste
