Your Health – Food Allergies

very seven years the body recycles, and what you ate for the last seven years, 14 years, 21 years, etc. is now causing you health problems. It is possible to eliminate food allergies. But first, you must build up your immune system and your digestive system for this to be possible.

What is a food allergy?

It is a sensitivity to a particular substance ordinarily harmless to some people, yet will cause a physical reaction in other people. Allergies tell you that your immune system is not responding appropriately. The immune system identifies foreign invaders and mobilizes white blood cells to fight the invaders. It is a highly developed, complex defense system to fight off infection.

Symptoms of possible allergies

Almost any substance can cause an allergic reaction. Do you feel nasal congestion starting? Are you coughing, wheezing, itching, feeling fatigued? Do you have a headache, hives or a skin rash? Are you short of breath? Other symptoms of allergies can be hay fever, asthma, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue syndrome, constipation, stomach ulcers, dizziness, hyperactivity, hypoglycemia, cramps, even shock can be a symptom of an allergic reaction.

Why do I have allergies?

Heredity says you were born with the same chemical pattern, as were your mother, father, uncles, aunts and cousins. Possibly your immune system is weak. Stress, poor diet, insufficient sleep, emotional traumas, and even an infection, can be a food allergic reaction. If your body is at peak health you can resist any food allergy, yet lacking just one single nutrient and you increase cell permeability allowing easy entrance for any foreign body to begin a massive reproduction, and very quickly an allergic reaction. If one parent is prone to allergies, one out of three children will have an allergy, and if both parents are prone to allergies, your chances become seven to 10 percent greater. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases states more than 50 million Americans have serious allergy problems. If your body is in peak health, your energy level is balanced in every single cell so every body system is functioning properly.

How do allergens enter the body?

They can be introduced through injections from drugs or vaccines. Allergies can enter the body through the absorption pattern of the skin. Cosmetics, soaps and dyes, metals (mostly nickle), insect bites, poison ivy and poison oak can cause allergic reactions. Allergies can be airborne. Particles absorbed in the mucus membranes of your nose like: pollen, dust, smoke, perfume and environmental chemicals can cause allergic reactions. In food allergies, entrance is through the mouth, then through the digestive tract and is absorbed through the intestines.

Symptoms of allergies in children

Just like adults, children show allergies in different ways. They may be listless, irritable or have trouble sleeping. They may have a stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, stomachache (cramps), constipation or diarrhea. It may seem like they have many colds that you can’t get rid of or that come back too often. My son had ear infections. He would spike a fever and I would rush him to the doctors and the doctor would change his medicine, raise the amount of medication or tell me to just keep using what I have. After six months of this, plus having his ears lanced and tubes inserted, he developed Johnson-Stevens Disease. He had a highly allergic reaction to all the medication the doctor had prescribed, which never corrected the problem. Allergy tests showed he was allergic to several things, and eventually his ears healed and he no longer had cold symptoms unless it was a real cold.

The number-one foods that will cause an allergy attack

Strawberries,  eggs, wheat, shellfish, chocolate and dairy products are the number-one foods that cause allergies. Other foods to test: bananas, beef products, caffeine, citrus fruits, corn, oats, oysters, peanuts, processed and refined foods, salmon, tomatoes and white rice. Avoid foods containing artificial color: FD&C Yellow No.5 dye causes allergic reactions. Food additives: vanillin, benzaldehyde, eucalyptol and monosodium glutamate cause allergic reactions as well. After 20 or 30 minutes of consuming Sulfite you might encounter symptoms like: breathing difficulties, anaphylactic shock, severe headaches, abdominal pain, stuffy/runny nose, flushing of the face, diarrhea, irritability and anger. People with a history of allergies, asthma or a deficiency of the liver enzyme sulfite oxidase can suffer great harm through the ingestion of sulfites. Read the labels very carefully when purchasing products that contain sulfite.
