The main cause of allergy is due to decreased resistance power. It is an indication of following wrong diet and wrong lifestyle.
In today's world the major cause of food allergies is Adulteration. Even the grains, cereals, tea or coffee that we take regularly are adulterated. Moreover the processed foods available in the market are loaded with numerous chemical additives. The worst part is even the fruits and vegetables are sometimes not healthy because of exposure to too much of Fertilizers or pesticides. All these factors causes' powerful reactions in the body, thereby reducing the immunity power.
An allergic condition can result from diet imbalances. There can be a breakdown in the body's ability to handle sugar due to excessive intake of refined sugar and blood sugar regularities due to defective diet pattern.
Emotional or psychological stress can also lead to allergies to common food.
Some are allergic to a particular type of food like fish, meat, milk, sweets, cabbage, brinjal, wheat, potatoes etc.
Some are allergic to food prepared under unhygienic conditions, roadside stuff, carbonated drinks or drinks containing preservatives.
The symptom of allergies varies from person to person and depends on the substances causing the reaction. The common symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, hypertension, giddiness, itching, running nose, eczema, fever, heart burn, irritability, sneezing etc.
Regular practice of Pranayama and Yogasanas helps in improving the immunity power and prevents allergies towards normal food substances.
The following descriptions should help you determine the type of food allergy you have.
Kapha-type individuals, with excess kapha in their system, will be allergic to kapha foods, including dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese; wheat; cucum?ber; and watermelon. Their food allergies may manifest as heaviness in the stomach, slow digestion, sleeping disorders, colds, congestion, cough, or water retention. In more serious conditions kapha food allergies may lead to bronchial congestion and kapha?type asthma.
Pitta individuals, whose systemic pitta is unduly high, will show allergic reactions to such high-pitta foods as hot, spicy dishes; citrus fruits; sour fruits; tomatoes; potatoes; eggplant; and fermented foods. Their symp?toms are likely to include heartburn, acid indigestion, stomach upset, nausea, and even vomiting. The person may suddenly get hot flashes, and may have bloodshot eyes.
Vata individuals, especially when vata is in excess, are prone to get allergies to raw foods; beans (black beans, adzuki beans, pinto beans, and so on) and certain animal proteins. Vata food allergies are likely to manifest as bloating of the stomach, burping, gas, gurgling of the stomach, and vague abdominal discomfort and pain. It may also
lead to insomnia and nightmares, pain in the joint, sciatica, muscle twitching, and muscle spasms.
So food allergies need to be studied according to an individual's prakruti (constitution) and vikruti (current status of the doshas).
The best approach is simply to avoid the problematic food items and to follow the diet appropriate for your body type. For example, a vata person having vata type food allergies should avoid a vata-provoking diet and should eat vata-pacifying foods
The same is true for pitta and kapha.
Here are some additional suggestions for each of the three main types of food allergy
An effective way to help bring vata food allergies under control is to take a dashamoola basti (enema) twice a week, such as on Sunday and Thursday. Boil up t pint of water with tablespoon of dashamoola, and use the result. ing tea (after it cools down) for the enema Try to retain the liquid at least 10 mmutes. This herbal enema will help to pacify vata and remove toxicity from the colon, and vatatype food allergies can be minimized. Con?tinue taking the dashamoola enema twice a week for one month.
Drinking licorice tea made from 1/2 tea?spoon licorice root powder, 1/2 teaspoon honey, and 1 teaspoon ghee can also be helpful. Sip a little of the tea every half hour to an hour throughout the day until symp?toms are relieved. Don't forget to add the honey only after the tea starts to cool; honey should never be cooked. Note: People with high blood pressure should not drink licorice tea. Substitute 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 to 3 cloves for the licorice, and make the tea as above.
To control pitta food allergies, it is helpful to do virechana cbibtsa (purgation). Take 1 teaspoon of ama!aki or sat isabgol (psyllium husks) at night. Add the herbs to 1 cup of hot water, let it stand for 10 to 15 minutes, and drink. Stag?nation of pitta in the small intestine is the root cause of a pitta-type food allergy. Pur?gation therapy clears away the pitta so that the allergy can be brought under control. Continue with virechana daily for a month, or until the allergy subsides.
You will also find it helpful to eat cooked apples. Peel and core a couple of apples, cook them a few minutes to soften them, and mash them up with a pinch of cumin and 1 teaspoon ghee. Eat about 1/2 cup once or twice daily, at least an hour before or after meals.
The Ayurvedic purification known as vamana (vomiting) will be helpful. Every Sunday (or at least for a couple of weeks) in the early morning, drink 2 pints of salt water. Add 2 teaspoons of salt to 2 pints of water, drink it down, and then try to vomit it out. (Rubbing the back part of your tongue until you get a "gag" reflex will help.) This purification process will remove a lot of excess mucus from the stomach and help to clear up food allergies.
If vomiting doesn't take place, don't worry about it; the remaining salty water won't hurt you. It will simply go through your system and will actually have some beneficial cleansing effect.
Note: Many people feel a lot of fear or dis?comfort with the idea or the actuality of vomiting. If you feel this way, do not force yourself to do this purification. Do vamana only if it is comfortable for you to do so.
Kapha should also fast on Sunday. The fasting is important; it will help cleanse the system.
Make a tea out of 1/2 teaspoon licorice root powder, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 tea?spoon coriander. Steep in 1 cup of water for 10 minutes, strain, and sip a little of the tea throughout the day, about an ounce every half hour to an hour. Again, people with high blood pressure should not drink licorice tea. Substitute '/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 to 3 cloves for the licorice.
If you don't know whether the allergy is vata, pitta, or kapha, then try this simple remedy that is effective for all types: Roast some cumin, fennel, and white sesame seeds, and eat a handful after meals.
Chewing a little of this mixture after eat?ing any food will aid digestion and help pre?vent any kind of food allergy.
