Food Allergy Treatment

Many people think that in order to treat a food allergy you need to first figure out which food is causing the allergy and then simply avoid it. But it is not always so simple and hence you need to understand your food allergies a little better, in order to know how to treat it. The first thing to remember is that if you have severe allergic reactions then always carry a self-injectable form of epinephrine, or adrenaline. These medications can stop an anaphylactic reaction. They are available at pharmacies with a doctor’s prescription.
Always read the labels carefully of any food you purchase since accidental exposure to the allergic food is common. At restaurants ask a lot of question about the ingredients before you order something. It is also important that you communicate to friends and family about the food allergies and also how to use the epinephrine so that they can help in the event of an emergency incase you are not in a position to communicate with them.

Some of the common foods allergies to people are caused by chocolate, eggs, milk, peanuts, medicines and soya bean. The common symptoms experienced are coughing, dizziness, migraine, depression, edema, irritability and sneezing. Some allergies that are caused by food can be treated at home and you don’t always have to rush to the hospital.

Some of the home remedies are:

• Fruits such as apples and grapes strengthen the immune system, thereby helping in curing the allergy.
• Some times the at least two bananas a day are given in order to treat the food allergies that affect the skin, digestive tract and cause asthma. How ever some people are allergic to bananas in such cases do not give the person bananas.
• You can make a juice of vegetables such as carrot, cucumber, radish, and beet. This can also be had as a salad.
