PREGNANCY STRESS, FEOTAL TOXINS AND ALLERGIES, HOW DO THEY ALL CONNECT?
by Dr. Mor Balaban
Several factors determine the development of a healthy and balanced immune system in a newborn. Pre and postnatal stress as well as exposure to trauma or severe illness can affect the delicate balance of the developing fetus immune system. In this decade we see a rise in anaphylactic allergies, and more and more children become allergic to multiple foods and environmental factors for no apparent reason. The possible role of prenatal emotional stress and trauma, poor diet, and postnatal factors such as immunizations in the development of severe allergies, will be discussed in detail in this article.
