Allergies can be treated with prebiotics
It seams that allergies can be cured by improving health of gut bacteria. What's more, one pill a day for the duration of allergy season is enough to reduce symptoms . Studies from 2009 by Pirkka V Kirjavainen and Glenn R Gibson  show that probiotics (food for bacteria) help to treat food allergy. They suggest also  that prebiotics (actual bacteria), for example lactobacilli and bifidobacteria may have similar effect. Studies from the same year by Arthur C Ouwehand, Merja Nermes, Maria Carmen Collado, Nina Rautonen, Seppo Salminen, and Erika Isolauri show  that indeed both of these types of bacteria are effective in reducing nasal symptoms of birch pollen allergy. The precise type of bacteria culture is important. For example 2002 study by T. Helin, S. Haahtela and T. Haahtela shown  that Lactobacillus rhamnosus is not effective in birch pollen allergy treatment.
