Food & Science

for Your Natural Well-Being

Food Allergies:


Sometimes for different reasons our immune system doesn’t recognize some molecules coming from the food we eat  and this triggers an immune reaction based on inflammatory activities.


This general inflammatory status is a physiological answer that your body carries out to protect itself.

Nasal congestion, coughing, wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, headache, fatigue, hives and other skin rashes are few of typical allergic reactions.

Sometimes the symptoms are sub-clinical, so they are not so evident and this will determine a pathological  chronic inflammatory status, leading to multiple serious health problems.

These include cancer, infertility, diabetes, migraine, mood disorders, asthma, bronchitis, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, gastrointestinal disorders, glaucoma, kidney problems, seizures, weight gain, heart palpitations, depression, and even cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, among other conditions (1,2,3).


The general pharmacological approach to food allergy is to use antihistamine, which blocks the signalling of inflammation. In fact, histamine is one the main mediators of our immune system released from mast cells, capable of triggering the immune reaction.
