Is Weight Loss And Allergies Connected?

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever snacked on something and then been even hungrier than before the snack? Do you get cravings for a specific food that will not go away until you satisfy that craving? If you answer yes to either of these two questions then it is a good chance you some type of food allergy. This is good news for you if you are also over weight, because there is a simple solution to your excess weight problem.

Allergies affect people in different ways. The most common ways that an allergy will manifest itself may involve a rash on the skin, cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, runny nose, watery eyes, wheezing and coughing.

What is interesting to note is that some allergic responses will cause the human body to produce adrenaline (epinephrine), dopamine, serotonin, and opioid enkephalin. Because of the stimulating and other effects of these chemicals the allergic symptoms are masked. Epinephrine is the drug of choice to treat a sever allergy attack.

Dr William Philopott has speculated that frequent ingestion of allergenic foods will trigger a rise in the amount of opioid enkephalin found in the brain. Opioid Enkephalin is a narcotic that is naturally produced by the human body.

To someone addicted to these chemicals can cause you to suffer from withdrawal symptoms when access to a particular food is denied. The obese person has no idea that the phenomenon of allergies and addictions to both foods and chemicals can control the daily eating habits with a powerful physiological need to stop the withdrawal symptoms caused by food allergies.

An allergic reaction can cause a drastic reduction in the blood sugar level. Irritability, weakness, and hunger symptoms will not go away when food is consumed in normal amounts. This allergic and addictive response to an allergic attack can cause an uncontrollable eating disorder.

Patients that have started a low-allergen diet usually experience a marked increased sense of well being with a single month. Food allergies or food intolerances can cause the body to retain both water and fat. Water retention is a common symptom of an allergic response. With the new low-allergen diet a rapid water loss of five to ten pounds within a week is often noticed. After the excess water has been removed from the human body the patient will tend to loose fat more easily.

Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium will neutralize the acidity caused by the allergic reaction and should reduce the hunger pangs and relieve stress. Two teaspoons of a combination of the nutrients can eliminate withdrawal symptoms of food allergies and can reduce the hunger cravings.

A combination of avoidance of the allergenic foods and the use if this nutritional supplement can offer patients a dramatic alleviation of symptoms from food allergies, especially hunger. If this vitamin and nutrient combination gives you relief from withdrawal symptoms and eliminates you hunger then the indications are that your symptoms were indeed caused by an allergic-addiction to foods.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
