Living with Nut Allergy Symptoms
A health article from Your Health Online the A to Z directory of dealing with Health Problems & nutritional Self Care Strategies
I can remember the first time that I had a reaction to nuts as if it were yesterday. I was out at a restaurant, eating food that I had eaten many times in the past. I began to feel as if my entire body were crawling with bugs and within a few minutes, I was having a difficult time breathing.
Although this reaction was somewhat mild, it alerted me to the fact that I had a problem which needed to be addressed. It took a little bit of investigation but through a series of allergy tests, my doctor was able to determine that I had a problem with a nut allergy.
At first, I thought that it was not a big deal and that I would just have to avoid eating these nuts in order to avoid having the problem again. I was surprised to find out that the next reaction that I had might be deadly.
As a matter of fact, I had probably been dealing with this nut allergy for quite some time but the reactions that I was having were so slight that I wasn't able to recognize them. My experience in the restaurant was enough to teach me a lesson, however, so I began looking for a way to deal with the symptoms, should they happen to occur again.
I was surprised to find out that there was very little that can be done in order to overcome a nut allergy. As a matter of fact, the only way to overcome it is to overcome it naturally.
Unfortunately, very few people were able to outgrow their nut allergy so it is something that they have to deal with for the rest of their life. The only option that I had was to make sure that I was prepared, should I happen to have another reaction to nuts that I accidentally came in contact with.
There are two different things that I always carry and I make sure that they are my constant companion. The first of these was an over the counter antihistamine which had a fast absorption.
If I started to feel as if I was having a little bit of a reaction because of food that I was eating, I immediately took one of these antihistamines to see if I could cut it off.
If the reaction turned severe, however, I also had an injectable drug which was prescribed to me by my doctor. Of course, avoiding nuts was my first line of defense but other than that, these two things help me to deal with the symptoms.

Even when we try to eat well, we're disadvantaged. The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The nutrition products I am going to recommend you make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history. They incorporated health building nutritional herbs with the best modern technology to help our bodies cleanse and detoxify so that the cells - the tiniest living units - can be as fully nourished as possible.
This allows the cells to grow, repair and to perform their functions with the best possible efficiency so that we feel and look better and are more able to prevent and fight disease. Once the body begins to clear itself of toxins it can more efficiently absorb nutrition.
