Food Allergies Natural Remedies

Food allergies or sensitivities to particular foods may produce the need for a very restrictive diet. A food allergy occurs when the body’s immune system reacts to otherwise harmless substances in certain foods. Allergies to foods may cause you to feel bad, increased mucus in your body or even create life-threatening symptoms. Family history of allergies increases the risk of having allergies. If both your parents have food allergies, you have a 75% chance of having one yourself. Excessive exposure to a particular food also increases chances of allergies; for instance, countries that have rice as a staple have higher rates of rice allergies.

Modern medicine usually treats food allergies with antihistamines and recommends avoiding the offending foods. While seeking natural help, use Homeopathic Combinations found below for food allergies.

From a natural perspective, when a person becomes food sensitive, the immune system is exhausted to a point where it takes time and patience to overcome. Find a good Naturopath or some natural specialist for your particular food allergy. Use some of the following remedies and elimination of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black teas, and soda. Also adrenal support may be appropriate.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Although a particular animal may produce more or less allergen, there is no relationship between the pet’s hair length and allergen production.

These allergies are caused by close proximity to animals and an oversensitive reaction of the immune system. Allergies to animal dander may cause an allergic reaction such as itching and burning eyes, sneezing, mucus discharges, and could progress to the throat closing or difficult breathing.

Modern medicine treats pet dander allergies with decongestants and anti-histamines for symptomatic results; however, they also have side effects.
