Diet and prevention of allergic rhinitis
In spite of the fact that there is no special prevention that excludes the appearance of allergic rhinitis, some preventive measures still exist. And the most important component is the cessation of contact with the source of an allergic reaction. To do this, you need to undergo a survey and establish a “provocateur”, and then reduce or exclude his contact with the body. Sometimes, having excluded such a product from the diet, you can forget about allergy forever. But not all allergic reactions are the same.
Types of allergies that exacerbate rhinitis and precautions
There are several types of allergies that provoke rhinitis. Each of them has its own “antidote”. Let’s consider some of them.
If the patient suffers from an allergy to household dust, daily cleaning of the apartment is the basic requirement. In doing so, you should use a mask to avoid getting dust on the nasal mucosa. Wet a napkin to wipe the dust with an acaricidal preparation that destroys the ticks in the room dust.
From the sources of dust is worth getting rid of at all. Fans of carpets, wool rugs, beautiful soft toys, will have to revise the design of their apartment. Perhaps you are more comfortable interior in the style of minimalism. In any case, from objects absorbing the dust, you have to get rid of. It is desirable to store pillows and blankets in special cases made of hypoallergenic materials.
A suffering allergy to the pollen of some plants, it is worth refraining from traveling to nature during the flowering of the source of the reaction. It is also not advisable to leave the house and ventilate the room before lunch. Be careful when choosing cosmetics, most creams are made from herbs. The most convenient option to avoid allergic rhinitis is rest in the mountains or near the sea, for the flowering period.
Despite the fact that food allergy, one of the most dangerous, it is easy to avoid. For this, it is necessary to identify products that cause an undesirable reaction and exclude them from their diet. When the runny nose still begins, you should first find out its cause, because the cold is also the cause of the common cold.
A good prevention of childhood allergies will be compliance with the mother during pregnancy of all safety measures for her health – complete refusal of alcohol and smoking, as well as exclude the taking of all medications not recommended by the doctor.
Diet for allergic rhinitis. What should I reject?
As we already mentioned, there is no certain diet for an allergic rhinitis. There are only foods that should be discarded altogether, replaced by others and those that should be introduced into your diet.
Refusal of dairy products and sweets that promote the release of mucus, exclude overload of the intestine and mucous membrane.
Citrus, chocolate, tomatoes, seafood and fish, eggs, cheese, nuts, strawberries and pineapples are foods containing a large percentage of histamine. These products should be avoided.
An allergic reaction can be caused by food additives, which are indicated on the package with the letter “E” and some figure.
Alcohol and coffee have no useful properties, so you can simply refuse them. And not only allergic people!
What foods should be included in the diet?
Tired body needs energy and vitamins. Therefore, the diet should be led by liquid dishes, juices from fruits and vegetables, as well as vegetable milk.
Cucumbers and juice from it, carrots and greens will rid the body of toxins. A bow and garlic will help strengthen the immune system. In the winter, the pumpkin will be a good source of beta-carotene.
As you know, honey treats many diseases. He also strengthens immunity, and the body protects against allergic reactions. A spoonful of honey in the morning on an empty stomach will help to avoid allergies. It is desirable that the honey was harvested in the area in which the flowers grow, on which the reaction takes place. Cells from this honey should be stored until next year and use them during the winter, with colds. This will allow the body to get used to it and not react so sharply to allergic products. Honey combs can be chewed in the winter with a cold cold. And give the children instead of chewing gum.
