Effective home remedies for food allergy
Food allergies are a real problem and are often treated with eliminating allergens, strengthening the patient nutritionally, and modifying the patient’s immune response. If you are allergic to anything (food most often) you must know at least some basic natural home remedies that can help you go through. Food allergy is a very individual problem, and people who have this problem must be well-informed, and responsible for their own health.
Special diets are the most commonly used treatment for food allergies and people who suffer from any sort of food allergy, should be very careful with what they eat. But, in case you have an accident and you don’t have your allergy pills nearby, you can soothe your allergies with natural remedies too.
1 Vitamin C
You can never go wrong with this (even if you have another type of allergy, such as stress based, or if you are allergic to dust, pet’s fur etc.) Vitamin C is one of nature’s great wonders. As a natural antihistamine, this water-soluble vitamin has a multitude of other functions in the body. It is a powerful antioxidant fighting free radicals, works miracles in the synthesis of collagen, and it’s the vitamin people can’t live without. Foods rich in vitamin C should be eaten as soon as possible when fresh, as they lose their strength after being exposed to air, or being processed, boiled, or stored for long periods of time. Good food sources of Vitamin C are guavas, blackcurrants, red bell peppers, kale, parsley, green sweet peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, mustard greens, mangoes, cauliflower, red cabbage, strawberries, papayas, green and white cabbage, spinach, citrus fruits, elderberries, calf liver, turnips, peaches, asparagus, cantaloupe, cayenne pepper, green onions, new lima beans, radishes, raspberries, tomatoes, new potatoes, lettuce, bananas, kiwi, honeydew, pineapple, cranberry juice, vegetable juice, tomato juice, rutabaga, and kohlrabi. You can also take it through food or simply take it orally in the form of pill.
