Taken from "Food Makes the Difference" Patricia Kane Ph.D. 1985:
The immune system closely interacts with the nervous and endocrine systems to maintain bodily homeostasis (stability). The allergic state can be triggered or worsened by many factors or a combination of factors such as infections, errors in metabolism, nutritional deficiencies, environmental stress factors, and digestive disorders. Blood-sugar abnormalities and digestive disturbances (pancreas) frequently accomplany allergic manifestations. Hormonal imbalance is common, as the thyroid gland may be underactive and the adrenals overactive* in allergic states. The brain and nervous system are acutely sensitive to allergenic materials, and a diverse range of symptoms may occur.
*This, I believe, would be a factor in adult acne.
