Dealing with Allergy Symptoms!

Allergy is a disease of the 21st century; according to statistics, 30% of the world’s population suffers from various forms of allergies. The numbers are growing as the environment is polluted and new modified products appear, the chemical composition of which is not recognized by the cells of our body. In response, an allergic reaction occurs – this is how the immune system reacts to a foreign substance.

Regardless of the type of allergy, doctors always prescribe a hypoallergenic diet. By adjusting your diet and getting rid of the allergen, you can quickly restore health and get rid of unpleasant symptoms.


Who needs a hypoallergenic diet

A hypoallergenic diet is recommended to be followed first of all by people with allergies confirmed by clinical diagnostic studies. Such a diet will also be useful for those who have not yet passed the necessary studies, but are already facing allergy manifestations (rash, itching, allergic rhinitis, etc.).

Often, a hypoallergenic diet is prescribed to nursing mothers in order to exclude the manifestation of allergic reactions in the baby. As well as children and adults suffering from atopic dermatitis.


Diet principles

The main principle of building a menu with a low-allergenic diet is the exclusion from the diet of foods that provoke the development of an allergic reaction. Considering that allergies are cumulative, all allergen products are excluded, and not just those to which a person has already had a reaction.
