GENERAL INFORMATION

Allergies

If you encounter an unpleasant reaction after eating certain foods - hives, itching, swelling or trouble breathing - you may have a food allergy. Then again, you might not.

Less than 2 percent of adults and 8 percent of children actually have a true food allergy. This is little consolation if you've had a bad experience and fear a recurrence. That's why it's important to distinguish a food allergy from more common problems such as food intolerance, indigestion or other conditions.

Prevention

The best way to prevent an allergic reaction is to know and avoid foods that cause symptoms. Some people may be merely inconvenienced by this, but others may find it a greater hardship. For instance, if beans are a staple part of your diet, it can be a challenge to come up with a substitute that has equal nutritional value. Also some foods — when used as ingredients in certain dishes — may be well hidden. This is especially true in restaurants and in other social settings.

If you know you have a food allergy, follow these steps:

  • Know what you're eating and drinking. Be sure to read food labels.

  • If you have already had a severe reaction, wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace.

  • Talk with your doctor about carrying emergency medications.

  • If you have asthma, be sure to ask if sulfites have been added to foods when dining in restaurants. When shopping for foods, check labels for the terms sodium bisulfite, potassium bisulfite, sodium sulfite, sulfur dioxide and potassium metabisulfite.

If your child has a food allergy, take these precautions to ensure his or her safety:

  • Notify key people that your child has a food allergy. Talk with child care providers, school personnel, parents of your child's friends, and other adults who regularly interact with your child. Emphasize that an allergic reaction can be life-threatening and requires immediate action. Make sure that your child also knows to ask for help right away if he or she reacts to food.

  • Explain food allergy symptoms. Teach the adults who spend time with your child how to recognize symptoms of an allergic reaction.

  • Write an action plan. Your plan should describe how to care for your child when he or she has an allergic reaction to food. Provide a copy of the plan to your child's school nurse and others who care for and supervise your child.

  • Have your child wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace. These list your child's allergy symptoms and explain how others can provide first aid in an emergency.

Allergies – Herbal Remedies

The following herbs/supplements have also been suggested as a way to curb the onslaught of allergies. If you are an allergy sufferer, and the treatments suggested worked to a degree, now you want to make sure the allergies stay away, you have to undergo certain lifestyle changes. This may include altering your eating habits, exercising, and continuous habits of taking certain herbs/supplements to counter any allergens that may want to infiltrate your body on an everyday basis.
