Information on Eczema - Top 3 Causes of Food Allergies

By: Janet Simpson

The causes of eczema are usually challenging to uncover. It could be any number of reasons. One of the common reasons is food intolerance.

This is where, as a result of eating a certain food, you break out in a rash or suffer an itchy fit.

Other reactions include difficulty in swallowing, or the swelling of the face, eyes or tongue. Nausea and dizziness is also quite common.

Food intolerance or allergies can be brought about for differing reasons. Listed below however are the common reasons for food allergies associated with what or the way you eat food.

Information on Eczema - Causes of Food Allergies #1:

The first cause of food intolerance associated with the what you eat or the way you eat is eating too much of the same food too often.

There are over 195,000 different edible plant foods on this planet. But most people tend to eat fewer than twenty such foods. In fact, the average person eats the same ten food types of food every single day.

What this does is predispose you to having an altered immune reactivity to these foods. And the nutrients you derive from these foods is limited.

The next cause of food intolerance associated with what you eat or the way you eat is eating too many foods that contain additives, preservatives colouring agents and flavour enhancers.

The number of food additives added to packaged foods in ever growing. These substances increase the risk of your immune system reacting against them.

Most of these substances are contained in foods that have been processed, cooked or prepared. Even certain breads contain these substances.

The number of additives, preservatives, colouring agents and flavour enhancers needs to be dramatically reduced.

The final cause of food intolerance associated with what you eat or the way you eat is eating your food too quickly.

When food is eaten too fast it lands in the stomach only partially digested. The stomach acids and digestive enzymes cannot digest these foods correctly and some of the food is absorbed through the intestinal lining setting up immune reaction.

This can lead to the development of food intolerance and increased toxin.

Food should be slowly and thoroughly chewed before swallowing to avoid this.
