Home Remedies For Food Allergies - Treating The Allergies Naturally

Author : Jeramey Thompson

Food allergy can be defined as a reaction of body's immune system to certain kinds of food items. This condition is quite frequent among children and babies and it is estimated that around 8 percent of children under the age of 5 are affected by food allergy. While most children outgrow their allergies as they grow up, some individuals continue to have food hypersensitivity reactions throughout their lives. The most typical foods that are known to stimulate allergic responses include milk, eggs, wheat, shellfish, fish, nuts like Para nut, walnut, and peanut, mollusks, and food additives and preservatives. It cannot be permanently treated, but there are a few home remedies for food allergy, which have been proven to be effective to treating the allergies caused by foods.

The severity and frequency of food allergy attacks can vary from person to person. Some people may experience only mild symptoms and discomfort, while some others may have life-threatening allergic reactions. The most frequently occurring symptoms of food allergic reactions are an itching or tingling feeling in the mouth, skin itching, abdominal problems like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, respiratory problems, such as nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, or wheezing, inflammation of body parts, including lips, tongue, face, and throat, and skin hives or eczema. Certain people may also experience dizziness and lightheadedness.

This problem can be fatal if it causes anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition characterized by difficulty breathing, difficulty talking, swelling of throat, fast pulse rates, wheezing or unrelenting cough, low blood pressure with shock, lightheadedness, and loss of consciousness. Undoubtedly, the best way to prevent a food allergic reaction is to stay away from the food item that triggers the attacks. Do not forget to read the label before you buy any food. Rotating the foods in your diet is one of the most recommended home remedies to treat this problem.

It has been noted that a rotation diet helps you minimize your exposure to the foods that cause allergies, reduce the risk of developing new food allergies, and identify the foods that cause allergic attacks. It is also good for your immune system. Rotation diet means eating a food only once every four days. You also should not eat any foods that belong to the same biological family. For instance, if you eat milk on the first day, you must not eat any milk products for the next few days. If you have symptoms of food allergy, try some home remedies to control them.

In order to suppress allergy symptoms, drink lime juice with warm water. Taking a teaspoon of castor oil each day is also a good natural remedy for food allergies. Add five drops of castor oil to any fruit or vegetable juice and consume this mixture every morning. This is one of the best home remedies for food allergy. Ginger can help you deal with the stomach problems caused by food allergens. Another way to combat food allergy is to drink a mixture of cucumber, carrot, and beetroot juices.
