Food Allergies Vs. Intolerance

There is a large misconception today about whether or not so many Americans are truly developing food allergies. Food allergy cases have skyrocketed in the past few decades, raising alarm to the FDA and other health associations.

The cause of this exponential rise is still being investigated. Some experts insist that these new cases are a food intolerance rather than a food allergy. Food intolerance differs from a food allergy in several ways, the most important being that a food intolerance is usually not fatal, whereas a food allergy is much more severe and quite often ends in death.

In either case, the reaction to the food or foods in question results in the body producing histamines to try and fight what it believes is a dangerous foreign object or substance. These histamines are the cause of many of the body's natural functions such as rashes, swelling, sneezing, mucous, and in some cases even vomiting.

For those suffering from these reactions to food intolerance, there is a treatment histamine blockers such as Histame are supplements that are ingested, and have the effect to stunt the body's urge to send out these attackers when the questionable food is ingested.

While much more research is needed to prove whether or not humans are gaining more allergies to substances, or simply more intolerance cases. But, at least for those suffering with intolerance, there is a remedy in histamine blockers. However, whether you have an intolerance or an allergy, if you have a reaction to certain foods, the best idea is to stay away from those foods until you have discussed the issues with your doctor. Both food intolerance and allergies are known to spontaneously show up and disappear throughout peoples lives, and you never know whether or not that reaction is going to be simply a burden, or life-threatening.

Replacing Diets with True Healthy Eating

I am not much of a believer in traditional diet plans. I just can't believe that replacing a natural diet with Styrofoam, processed food is a healthy regimen for anyone.

This is why I like the diet plans introduced by so much. Hungry Heart knows that dieting is not about replacing an unhealthy diet with a lacking diet, but rather replacing an unhealthy diet with a natural diet rich in raw and essential vitamins and minerals.

This approach do dieting has proven successful for many men and women, and is a viable program for battling food-addiction, overeating, emotional eating, and compulsive eating.

The programs offered by hungry heart vary depending on the person, and their own personal issues with overeating, to browse through the programs offered, and find the one that best suits you, visit:

Eating Right, Everyday

Anyone who has ever started (and stopped) a diet in their lifetime knows that the toughest thing about a diet is that the diet food is often lackluster and leaves you feeling empty or underwhelmed.

One of the greatest renewable resources on this earth is the plant. Plants give so much for what small amount they take from the earth. In-fact, what they do give us is so vital to life and health.

Fruit trees especially, are essential to us as human beings because in addition to giving us oxygen to breathe, shade from the sun, and a pleasing appearance, they also give us their truest gift, their fruit. The fruit produced by orchard trees such as cherry trees and apple trees plays a pivotal role in our health; antioxidants, vitamins, essential oils and many other nutrients that keep us healthy and looking well, are found in large quantities these fruits.

Blueberries have been touted for years for their healing and protective properties. Blueberry plants alone have been considered one of the best foods to protect against heart disease and cancer.

Even with all of their miracle qualities, the most miraculous quality of all, is the ease it takes to cultivate and care for these plants. You don't need to own a 500 acre orchard to continuously yield fresh fruits for the entire year. These plants and trees can be easily planted and cared for in urban environments as well as rural.

A Formula For Health

One formula that is critical to health, but sometimes forgotten, is simply H2O -- water. It does often get overlooked due to its simplicity and common uses.

It is very important, however, to remember that a human being is 70% water, so 70% of your overall health is directly related to water. The most important factor being the PH balance of that water.

We all have seen or read stories about how entire populations and species of fish have died off just from a minute change in their home-water's PH levels. The cells and systems inside a human body are just as sensitive to these types of changes as well. Re are now beginning to realize that wrinkles, heart disease, allergies, and other ailments are directly related to water quality and PH, so it's no surprise that more and more individuals are beginning to reap the health benefits from water ionizers these days.

By ionizing water, the PH  can be held at healthy levels, and will promote healthier body function. Kangen Water Machines have grown in popularity recently and tend to be the most popular choice for water machines, but each and every water ionizer is going to have its own positives and negatives.

If you would like more information on the benefits of ionization, would like to price machines, or have additional questions, visit:
