allergies-5Causes: Allergy is an indication of lowered resistance and internal disharmony caused by dietetic errors and faulty style of living.

The major cause of allergy is feeding foods to babies like Cereals, Meat, Corns, Whole Milk, before they reach at the age of 10 to 12 months.

These foods cause allergic reactions as babies lack the proper enzymes needed for their digestion before that age. Babies should be breastfed for at least eight months as this is nature’s way of providing all the required nutrients during this period.

allergies-2Another important cause of allergy is today’s processed foods loaded with numerous chemical additives, many of which cause powerful reactions. 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 consequent blood sugar irregularities, or mineral and vitamin imbalances due to defective dietary patterns.

Third, and most important, general health and resistance should be built up to establish immunity to them.

Another way to detect the cause of allergy is by “pulse test.” The method is as follows : Check your pulse before a meal. Then limiting that meal to one food only, wit for half an hour after eating and take your pulse again. A slight increase is considered normal, even up to 16 extra beats.

If your pulse does not rise above 84, you may be allergy-free. But if your pulse rises beyond that point, and remains high an hour after the meal, you have found your food allergy.

The best way, however, to prevent or overcome allergies is to strengthen the overall physical resistance so as not to fall an easy prey to every allergen that comes along.

To start with, the person should fast on fresh fruit juices for four or five days. Repeated short juice fasts are likely to result in better tolerance to previous allergies.

After the fruit juice fast, the person can take a mono diet of vegetables or fruits such as carrots, grapes or apples, for one week. After that one more food is added to the mono diet.

A week later the third food is added and so on. After four weeks, the protein foods can be introduced, one at a time. In case an allergic reaction to a newly introduced food is noticed, it should be discontinued and a new food tried. In this way all real allergens can be eventually eliminated from the diet.
