Up to 40% of the worlds population (an upward trend!) suffers from some form of allergy. Nut allergy, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, eczema and many others. Allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to substances that are usually harmless, such as foods, pollen etc. At least 10% of children around the world have eczema. Probiotics rich foods help to resume the disrupted immune system and fix allergies.
The chances to develop allergies are largely genetically determined. Study shows that 12% of children with no family history of allergy, 30% to 50% of children with a single parental allergy and 60% to 80% of children with biparental allergies will develop allergic disease.
While peanut allergies are what parents hear about the most — which makes sense given that the number of kids with peanut allergies has tripled in the past 15 years — there are other foods that are most likely to trigger an allergic reaction in children- cow’s milk, wheat, soy, egg, fish. Food allergy is different from food intolerance. A child might feel bloated or gassy after having a milk product, but that could be a sign of an intolerance to lactose. However, in case of allergy, the reaction will be much stronger like extreme gut pain or vomiting or even more serious. The good news is that most children will outgrow their food allergy. Approximately 85 percent of allergies to cow’s milk, soy, egg and wheat will resolve by the time the child is 8 years old.
allergy and immune system
An allergic reaction is an immune system response to a particular food protein. 70-80% of immune cells are located in the gut (large intestine). This is also home to 100 trillion bacterias (gut microorganisms). There is enough research linking bacterias to immunity. The shift in lifestyle, rising pollution, use of antibiotics, and processed food consumption has all together impacted the quality of bacterias in our gut. This has contributed to compromised immunity in kids and adults.
Studies state that a lack of diversity in the gut bacterias can also be associated to allergies- seasonal or nut allergies. Children who are exposed to antibiotic or medication soon after birth, increase the chances of developing allergies early on. (Read about peanut allergy)
The good news is that our immune system can be modified from as early as pregnancy to infancy and further as we age. A well developed immune system ensures the maintenance of health for infants and children, throughout life. (What other foods help with immunity?)
This is one way to resume the disrupted immune system. Probiotics rich foods are live bacteria found in certain additional food like fermented rice or bean, wine, buttermilk, kefir, kombucha, yogurt, miso, kimchi, aged cheese, pickled vegetables. We provide these bacteria home, and in return they extract vitamins and minerals from food for our body’s healthy functioning.
