food-allergies

Sometimes a feeling of uneasiness and discomfort occurs immediately after a meal. It is often thought that the result of a food allergy. In most cases, however, this feeling of discomfort is the result of the intolerance of some foods rather than food allergy. The difference in food intolerance and allergy is mainly realized through the difference in time scale and severity of symptoms.

To understand and diagnose the difference between the two is important. Symptoms of food intolerance can manifest within hours or even a day later. In the case of allergies, the onset is immediate and generally within an hour. Food allergy occurs when the immune system attempts to process a protein found in the food incorrectly, leading to an overreaction by the body and the production of certain chemicals. It is important to identify the allergen in question is causing the food allergy so that it can be avoided in future.

Some of the key symptoms that occur with food allergies are:

1. Skin rashes and itching
2. Severe diarrhea and vomiting
3. Stomach cramps
4. Swelling skin especially in areas of procurement, such as the eyelids, lips and inside the mouth
5. A runny nose and blocked nasal passages
6. Inflammation throat, trachea and larynx
7. Headaches
8. Fatigue and dizziness
9. Joint pain
10. Hives

These symptoms should be identified immediately as delayed treatment can lead to malfunctioning of the internal systems. Ingredient labels should be read carefully when buying food and when eating out it is always a good idea to check with the waiter at the restaurant about ingredients used to prepare a plate. Some patients are so vulnerable that doctors even advise them to carry self-injectable epinephrine pens, which can literally save your life duringĀ  a severe allergic reaction.

The foods below are five of the most allergic foods for people with food allergies:

1. Eggs
2. Milk or dairy products
3. Seafood and shellfish
4. Peanuts and cashews
5. Wheat

These are the foods which most common affect children and adults, and it is important to visit a medical professional as soon as you experience any signs of a food allergy. In cases of food intolerance, smaller degrees of similar symptoms may occur but usually disappear after a short time. In the cases of food allergies these symptoms even more pronounced and severe, and may also lead to severe breathing problems or diarrhea.

severe-food-allergySevere or Fatal Food Allergy: Are you at risk?

Hay fever sufferers and those prone to hives, take heed: You could be rushed to the emergency room someday for an allergic reaction to a food you eat. You need to be prepared.

Foods you may be allergic to include flaxseed, pepperoni, apples, and cant juice. In the past, when a person with allergies was hurried to the hospital suffering with severe symptoms, nobody ever knew why. No one could explain the sudden, dangerous allergic emergency.

Finally, a few observant doctors made the connection between allergies like hay fever and food allergies. Certain people can have a reaction to a food that sends their everyday allergies into overdrive.

For instance, one little boy regularly reacted to the sun by breaking out ii small hives. But twice, he began wheezing, his throat started closing, and he had to be rushed to the emergency room. On both occasions, the boy had eaten a pepperoni pizza before going outside. The nitrates in the pepperoni had made ht usual minor allergic reaction to the sun much, much worse.

In Europe, almost three out of four people who have hay fever also have allergies to fruits and vegetables. Allergies to apples are so common that a researcher in the Netherlands looked for a way to make them edible. He sliced some apples microwaved them for one minute, and fed them to people with apple allergies Eight out of 10 had no allergic reaction at all.

Apparently, you can be mildly allergic to raw apples but not allergic at all the cooked apples. It’s really true that you can enjoy applesauce and apple pie whet you can’t enjoy a raw apple.

If you have allergies, you should watch yourself for allergic reactions to food especially to flaxseed, pepperoni, apples, and carrot juice. If you do have to make an emergency trip to the hospital or to your doctor, be prepared to tell the people in charge what you’ve been eating. It’s important that you figure out what your food triggers are so you can avoid them.

coconut-allergiesI recently discovered that I am allergic to products containing coconuts. I’m actually pretty sure that this is the cause since I break out on my face when using the products and don’t when I discontinue them.

Am I crazy or does coconut really cause allergies?

Best Answer:

Searching for soaps and other products which are free from coconut ingredients can be a challenging task. You are certainly not crazy; there are many personal care products out there which contain coconut products and you can’t always tell just be reading the label.

Here is just a partial list of potential coconut derived additives and ingredients:

  • 1,2 Octanediol
  • 2 Phenoxyethanol
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate
  • Capryl Glycol
  • Caprylic Acid
  • Caprylic Glycol
  • Caprylic/Capric
  • Caprylyl Glycol
  • Ceteareth-20
  • Cetearyl Alcohol
  • Cetearyl Glucoside
  • Ceteth-20 Phosphate
  • Cetyl Alcohol
  • Cetyl Esters
  • Cocamide MEA
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • Cococaprylate/Caprate
  • Cocomide DEA
  • Coconut Oil
  • Disodium Cocamphodiprop
  • Emusifying Wax
  • Glyceryl Caprylate
  • Hexyl Laurate
  • Isopropyl Myristate
  • Laureth-3
  • Olefin Sulfonate
  • Organic Sodium Cocoate
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Polysorbate 20
  • Sodium Cocoate
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
  • Sucrose Stearate
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinat
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Sodium Stearate
  • Sorbitan Stearate
  • Stearyl Alcohol
  • Vegetable Cetearyl Glucos
  • Vegetable Glycerine

Luckily, there are more and more manufacturers making hypoallergenic personal care products that do not contain coconut based ingredients such as Kiss My Face and others.

We have found that people who have coconut allergies to skin care products normally do not have an allergic reaction to coconut in their diets and believe this is due to the manufacturing process for coconut-based ingredients.
