Eczema Pictures - Top 3 Causes of Food Allergies

By: Janet Simpson

As an eczema sufferer it is very likely that you have certain food intolerances. Almost half the population in the western community have food allergies.

What usually happens is that when you eat a certain class of food to which you have an intolerance, within a short period of time you have a negative reaction to that food.

The sort of reaction you might suffer include eruption of hives, rashes, difficulty swallowing, swelling of eyes, face and tongue, nausea and dizziness.

The reasons for food intolerances are wide and varied. Here are details of three of the most unusually reasons.

Eczema Pictures - 1st Cause of Food Allergies:

If you lack hydrochloric acid and/or pancreatic enzymes in your stomach you will be exposed to food intolerances. With this condition you run the risk of food proteins crossing through the intestinal lining and creating toxins. Maldigestion, as this is sometimes known, can then lead to the growth of unwanted bacteria, yeast and parasites.

Eczema Pictures - 2nd Cause of Food Allergies:

The second unusual cause of food intolerance is intestinal ecology. Your intestinal lining contains over 400 different species of micro-organisms or intestinal flora, both good and bad.

In fact your body could quite easily contain 3lbs of colon bacteria. These bacteria are the front-line immune defence and when there is a good balance of bacteria they help control absorption, help with the production of nutrients and help with the elimination of toxin.

Eczema Pictures - 3rd Cause of Food Allergies:

We seem to rely more and more on over the counter drugs. The use of antibiotics is ever growing. But these drugs alter your bowl bacteria and inhibit probiotics. They also lower intestinal immunity and encourage growth of unwanted bacteria.

Antibiotics also encourages the growth of yeast in the colon.
