Allergies

Allergic reactions are the immune system’s response to perceived invaders in the body such as mold, dust, or certain food. A food allergy is an allergic reaction to certain food such as milk, shellfish, nuts, chocolate, or soy, or food additives, such as preservatives and colorings. An allergic reaction can range anywhere from mild to severe and include skin rash, headache, hives, stuffy or runny nose, gastrointestinal upset, or shortness of breath. Certain people develop life-threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis in which there is a difficult breathing, rapid swelling of the throat or tongue, and a sudden drop in blood pressure, also the person may become unconscious. To deal effectively with food allergies a person must eliminate the offending food, but may find natural remedies helpful in reducing the severity of symptoms when the food is accidentally consumed.
