Bit of a two part question here: has anyone noticed a connection to high level stress and an allergic reaction?
And if you have what changes, solutions or remedies - did you apply?
Stress is really bad for your body and mind.
Stress is a symptom of your body in fight mode as your immune system drains your energy, rendering you defeated and ill. Then you've got to recover, but if you bombard your body with allergies... you won't recover, other health problems can slide in unnoticed.
Take control my lovelies.
I recommend the regular Detox ... flush your system, keep fit, keep strong and Don't be embarrassed to say no thankyou to that cantaloupe. Try Meditation and massage to ease your mind and help your body in recovery.
It's your body! Your choice! Your life!
One other thing I have noticed. Foods keep changing and I don't mean just ready prepared food or cereal-based products. I mean simple fruit and veg. I noticed about 1-2 years ago that bananas began to taste a bit powdery, not the same fruit as when I was younger. I did not think much about it and often felt unwell or depressed, so took no notice. then one day I was on a course where the trainer bought healthy gluten-free nibbles and biscuits and bananas. I had a couple of bananas and noticed halfway through the afternoon, I felt very weird and started to cry. I had to leave the class, really embarrassing. I dowsed food that I had eaten and found bananas were a major culprit. The spiced herbal tea was the other issue there. I had forgotten about this until recently when I started to eat them again and spent the rest of the day crying and feeling like I had been run over by a steamroller. Dowsed them, yet again, a big no. So I think so-called healthy products are grown in a different way now. Much of the healthy fruit and veg have fertilizers and different growing methods. So beware of these, your moods can be affected by simple food too.
With stress, our whole body structure changes and we are releasing cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol suppresses the immune system and inflammatory pathways. It is no wonder that if we are sensitive to certain foods that this is exacerbated. My Allergist always states that so many people have candida and leaky gut made worse by stress. Whether that is true or not, I know that stress causes untold damage to our bodies. I always very stressed being a carer 24/7 to a severely disabled husband and trying to deal with authorities. Meditation should help people to calm their gut and help the intolerances abut it is finding the time!
If I’m going through stress for what ever reason and I get contact with one or more of the many allergens that I am susceptible to then I usually have a more exacerbated reaction. Staying calm and focused on Papa God doesn’t prevent every allergic reaction but it does reduce the intensity and helps me to respond in a calmer way to what ever goes wrong.
judy d at least your allergist took your reaction servious, i had one that thought gluten was major and all my others were minor, i said i don't care if it makes me sick why would i want to eat it? and he wanted to give me allergy shot's for everything! like that would make it all go away!not....... lucy ortiz i once ate the whole boiled egg and was very sick and later realized what i had done and was horrified! my father was very ill and i was under alot of stress and was not thinking and so i did the no-no. and ate the whole thing and i am allergic to egg whites!
