Depression caused by food allergies and sensitivities?
Studies suggest that allergy sufferers are twice as likely to have depression as people without allergies. The allergy-depression connection suggests that allergy suffers are more vulnerable to mood lows
A 7-year old girl told her mother she wanted to go to heaven by stopping eating as Food was making her sick! Fortunately, her mother had her tested and found that she was allergic to several foods including diary, gluten, eggs, sugar and soy. After eliminating these foods from her diet for a month she became a cheerful and happy child!
A recent study showed that depression was more related to gut health and inflammation than neurotransmitter issues. Allergic rhinitis is known to cause specialized cells in the nose to release cytokines, a kind of inflammatory protein. Animal and human studies suggest that cytokines can affect brain function, triggering sadness, malaise, poor concentration, and increased sleepiness.
From thermal imaging, we can see those inflammatory patterns that start in the stomach area and work their way up to the head. So if the gut is inflamed, you’ll also see an inflamed forehead and sinus pattern It is known that headaches and migraines were involved but now we see its connection to depression and anxiety!
Can we help our loved ones by testing what food they may be allergic and experiment to see what happens and how long it takes to see the lifting off the depression after eliminating the food that they are allergic to.
What are Allergies？
‧ Allergic people have excessive responses to something in their environment
‧ Certain foods, pollens, animal dander, molds, yeasts, and bacteria, as well as many chemicals, are the most commonly recognized allergens
‧Allergens stimulate our immune system into action, and give rise to allergic (or hypersensitivity) reactions
The Relationship between Food Allergy and Health
‧Many common symptoms and the allergies that caused them may go unrecognized for years
‧Allergy, increased stress, recurrent infections or declining health may add to the burden of chronic allergies. Arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune disease, eczema, and migraines can develop into chronic conditions
‧Discover and remove the offending allergens from the diet helps lessen the serious conditions linked with food allergies
Who has allergies？
Conservative estimates imply that as many as 25 percent of the population have significant allergies to some types of foods, chemicals, or inhalants. The true incidence of allergy and intolerance may be considerably higher if we include the less dramatic symptoms of occasional anxiety, joint aches, generalized fatigue, and water retention as well.
