Why Some Foods Can Cause Health Problems

When you eat an allergen, your body sees it as a threat and your immune system sends out an alarm as though it is being attacked by a foreign invader. Your immune cells produce proteins called antibodies that trigger the release of inflammatory chemicals that cause allergic symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, asthma, hives, eczema, dermatitis, diarrhea, constipation, mood disorders or headaches. The first step toward allergy relief is easy – just look at your diet. For 7-14 days, follow an elimination diet and see if your symptoms improve or go away. The most common food allergens are eggs, dairy, wheat, corn, oats, soy, shellfish, peanuts, chocolate, citrus fruits and peppers. Introduce one omitted food every 2 days and you will see what foods trigger your discomfort. Following a Paleo diet is an easy way to eliminate food allergens. For allergy relief, consider Acupressure Allergy Relief Technique.
