PEANUT ALLERGY

Peanut allergy is a serious and potentially deadly problem. An allergic reaction to nuts can progress rapidly to anaphylaxis. Peanut allergy is responsible for more deaths than any other type of allergy.

Children are the most affected and the number of children affected has increased dramatically in recent years. Peanut allergy symptoms can include a tingling feeling in the lips or mouth, a rash, swelling on the body, swelling in the throat (can cause obstruction of breathing), vomiting, cramping, diarrhea and shock from extreme low blood pressure. This is compounded greatly if there is a history of asthma.

If a person is allergic to one kind of nut they may also be allergic to other kinds and exhibit tree nut allergy symptoms. This would include almonds, peanuts, pecan, brazil, cashew, hazel, pistachio, pine and walnuts. Additionally sesame seed, coconut, poppy seed and sunflower seed are some others that may trigger an allergy. Blood and skin tests can show allergies to several kinds of nuts.

As there is no medicine for nut allergies or peanut allergies the best thing to do is to avoid them. This means reading labels and paying attention to how the food was produced. Pay careful attention to menus in restaurants and don't be afraid to ask questions.

There are also some natural allergy cures which can relieve allergic symptoms with little or no side effects. The herbs which are commonly used are Astragalus, Black Cohosh, Dong Quai, Eyebright, Echinacea, Ginkgo, Goldenseal, Grape Seed Extract, Horseradish, Licorice, Nettle, Pau Darco, Rosemary and Yarrow. Always consult a health care professional before beginning an allergy regimen.

There has also been great success with using Food Allergy Herbal Formula-2. Check the internet for this formula.
