Let us make you familiar with the bitter truth that there is no permanent cure of food allergies in allopathic treatment.
Food Allergy is the abnormal reaction of our body immediately after the consumption of certain foods. It is characterised by abdominal discomfort, indigestion, stomach ache, constipation, acidity, headache and bloating.
It may be associated with hives i.e. skin rashes, nasal and chest allergy i.e. itching, sneezing, blocked nose, watery nose, falling of secretion in the throat, wheezes in the chest, ringing sound in the ears etc. In some cases, mouth itches and ulcers can also be formed.
●Wheat Allergy i.e. bread, cookies, biscuits, cakes, wheat chapatis, pasta, barley, ripe oats, etc. It is also called Gluten Allergy.
●Dairy or milk products allergy
●Peanuts, walnuts and almonds allergy
●Eggs, fish, seafood like prawns allergy
●Fermented foods like red wine and yeast allergy
Patients may experience one or more of these symptoms after the consumption of trigger foods:
It may be associated with:
Out of all the allergies, wheat allergy or gluten allergy is the most concerned one because wheat constitutes a major portion of our daily diet. It is usually diagnosed in children when parents notice negligible or no height growth, pale face with less haemoglobin (less blood level) and the child being underweight. According to a research at the University of Bristol, wheat allergy can even stunt(stop) growth and cause the above listed symptoms in children.
Lactase is an enzyme produced in your small intestine. This enzyme breaks down the lactose you consume so that your body can absorb it. People with deficiency of lactase are not able to digest the lactose present in dairy products. This makes them intolerant to dairy products so their body produce symptoms like allergy. The symptoms of allergy to dairy products are the same as the above listed.
If the person allergic to red wine consumes it then his body will produce symptoms like severe allergic reactions. The patient’s face turns red. Also, he may feel dizzy with headache and the feeling to vomit.
Yeast allergy is the allergic reaction produced by your body on the consumption of certain fermented foods involving yeast. It can have mild to very severe symptoms. The patient may experience abdominal swelling, difficulty in breathing, skin reactions, dizziness, changes in mood, joint pain and widespread body pain.
However, feel free to eat protein such as unprocessed meat and fish, green vegetables, beans, potatoes, soda breads as well as drink skim milk, fruit smoothies and squash. These items are yeast-free and won’t pose any danger. But, never forget to check the label.
Sulphites are preservatives added in foods to prevent discoloration of foods. They are usually used in canned foods, juices, frozen foods, dried fruits, and certain fruits and vegetables. Upon the consumption of foods with sulfite, the patient may experience breathing difficulties, severe headaches, abdominal pain, stuffy/runny nose, diarrhea, irritability, flushing of the face and “hot flash” feeling.
Untreated food allergy can cause complications:
Sit in a relaxed posture and check your pulse for 1 minute. After this, consume trigger food and within 15 minutes, check your pulse yet again.
You’ll observe that your pulse has increased by more than 10 beats.
For eg: Before food, if your pulse was 72
Then after food, your pulse will be 82
This self food allergy test would help you in knowing whether you are allergic to the food or not.
According to Ayurveda, food allergy is a hypersensitive reaction towards an irritant leading to discomfort or in extreme case leading to shock which can be life threatening. A food allergen causing allergy to one can be completely normal to another. Each person has different constitution. Certain foods are not compatible with a particular body constitution and result in a reaction, thus an allergic reaction towards that food.
Generally, a bad digestion leads to undigested food accumulation i.e. Ama in the body. But for accumulation of Ama, the role of Jatharagni cannot be ignored.
To keep the Jatharagni and digestion normal, we should stick to eating fresh, organic, seasonal foods and vegetables. Processed and canned foods with preservatives, dyes and chemicals should be avoided. By strengthening Agni and digestion, food allergies can be prevented.
This Ama indigestion reaction is majorly seen in patients of wheat allergy, wheat intolerance, milk intolerance, peanut allergy, red wine allergy, corn allergy, egg, fish, meat, seafood allergies.
