Joe Alton, MD and Amy Alton, ARNP are the medical experts for Jack Spirko's popular Survival Podcast, and today take a question from Josh, who has four children with allergy issues although it's never been a problem in the family. Dr. Alton discusses the Hygiene Hypothesis of why we're experiencing an epidemic of allergies these days, and how to recognize and deal with severe reactions. Also, Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones talk about antioxidants, a controversial topic to some in Western Medicine. What are they, what do they do, and a lot about how diet and lifestyle affects your ability to use them to stay healthy. All this and more in the latest episode of The Survival Medicine Hour.
