Food allergies can be difficult to diagnose, as non-allergic food reactions, such as food intolerances, often mimic the symptoms of food allergies. People with known allergies should start treatment immediately if they experience symptoms while or after eating a food, and should seek medical attention if the symptoms worsen. An elimination diet can help identify which foods are causing the allergy symptoms. A 2001 study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that differences in the neonatal gut microbiota precede the development of atopy, suggesting that commensal gut bacteria may play a role in preventing allergies.
The elimination diet is a trial and error process, but after 4 to 6 weeks, it can help pinpoint which foods are causing the allergy symptoms. Eucalyptus oil is another essential oil that can help reduce allergy symptoms. It opens the lungs and sinuses, improves circulation, and helps alleviate food allergy symptoms. Trigger foods can make seasonal allergies worse, so it is important to be aware of these foods.
