Kids with Allergies and How Probitics and Digestive Enzymes Help.

Your Kids and Allergies

What is the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?

Food allergies and food intolerances can have similar symptoms, but are very different conditions. Intolerances, such as lactose intolerance and celiac disease, can cause someone to feel ill. Food allergies, not only can make someone feel ill, but also can cause a life-threatening reaction.

Food intolerance means either:

the body cannot properly digest the food that is eaten

a particular food might irritate a person’s digestive system

Symptoms of food intolerance can include nausea, gas, cramps, abdominal pain, diarrhea, irritability, nervousness, or headaches.

Food allergy occurs when the body’s immune system, which normally fights infections, sees the food as an invader. This leads to a response from the immune system — an allergic reaction — in which chemicals like histamine are released in the body. The reaction can cause symptoms like breathing problems, throat tightness, hoarseness, coughing, vomiting, abdominal pain, hives, swelling, or a drop in blood pressure.Even if previous reactions have been mild, someone with a food allergy is always at risk of the next reaction being life threatening. Eating a microscopic amount of the food, or sometimes even touching or inhaling it, can lead to a serious allergic reaction. For this reason, those with food allergies must avoid the problem food entirely, and always carry emergency injectable epinephrine.

In contrast, many with food intolerances can ingest a small amount of the bothersome food without a problem.

Probiotics and Digestive enzymes:

Probiotics are microscopic organisms, generally bacteria but some fungi as well, who live in the human digestive tract and help us out.Probiotics help improve the resistance to allergies.

Digestive enzymes are chemical “scissors” that help us break down our food.Digestive enzymes are found in our saliva, in our stomachs and in our small intestines.Digestive Enzymes Combat Leaky Gut and Food Allergy.One of the quickest ways to reverse allergy is to consume lots of digestive enzymes, especially proteases (enzymes which break down protein). In fact, it is theoretically possible to consume enough digestive enzymes to stop any food (or “brain”) allergy in its tracks!Conversely, poor digestion due to inadequate secretion of digestive enzymes is a setup for food (and “brain”) allergy.
