Suffering From Allergies, DO NOT Eat These Food

Allergies can happen to anyone at any time. There are multiple types of allergies that you might suffer from and the only option to treat them is avoid doing that stuff or eat that food. Whether it’s labeled as hay fever, seasonal allergies or allergic rhinitis, the symptoms are miserable and include a runny nose, eyes and dry cough. Certain foods can trigger or worsen these allergies, but results vary from person to person. Avoiding some foods and altering the preparation methods of others may stop that constant sniffle.
If you are allergic to tree pollens like alder or birch, you may want to avoid parsley; it’s a known cross-reactor meaning it can make your seasonal allergies worse during peak season.
Both rich in histamines and a known cross-reactor with grass pollens, tomatoes can be a bad choice during peak allergy season. If your symptoms seem to be worsening, you may want to consider avoiding tomatoes.
Certain fruits will instigate the food pollen allergy in allergic rhinitis sufferers. The allergenic response cannot differentiate between a fresh apple and birch pollen in the mouth. Those allergic to ragweed should avoid bananas, melons and zucchini, as these plants harbor food pollens molecularly similar to ragweed. This response is usually mitigated by avoiding these raw fruits during allergic rhinitis season.
4. Herbs, Nuts and Seeds
Ragweed, a common allergen known to allergic rhinitis sufferers, exists in the same plant family as chamomile and echinacea. These two herbs are found in teas, immune system support and herbal supplements. Almonds, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds may trigger an allergic response as well.
5. Cold Food and Beverages
People with allergic rhinitis may also be diagnosed with asthma, or generate asthma-like symptoms during an attack. Extremely cold foods and beverages cause a spasm in the large breathing tube called a bronchospasm. Ice cream, milkshakes, ice slushies and even iced drinks may stimulate a bronchospasm, leading to a coughing fit.
