proteolytic enzymes in foods help with food allergies

Food allergies are not always triggered by food. They are often the result of a cumulative build up of other allergens in the body.

There are over 100,000 new chemical additives and xenoestrogens that have been added to the enviroment in the last 50 years alone that could have made their way into your food and water supply that could be contributing to your allergy problems. Also, any number of vitamin and mineral deficiencies can contribute to the problem. What can you do about it?

  • Digestive enzymes might indeed be helpful since they help break down the complex proteins in many of the foods that do not digest properly and that create circulating immune complexes that contribute to allergies. (Wheat, corn, dairy, and soy come to mind.)
  • You might also want to consider using proteolytic enzymes without food to help clean out the circulating immune complexes.
  • You might also want to supplement with a good antioxidant formula that contains quercetin, since that helps tone down allergic responses. Sometimes this alone can make a major difference.
  • And finally, a good colon/liver detox combo may be the single most important thing you can do to reduce your body's over-response to allergens.

    I found that the best solution was to go to the Advanced Allergy Elimination clinic and have treatment with them. The challenge I had was most of treatments I was told to take I had a reaction to such as beetroot, some of the enzymes etc, and lemon juice always caused a very bad reaction in the way of arthritis symptoms. I reacted to 95% of foods so I was living on a very limited diet. I can now eat a fairly normal diet due to this treatment

    I am trying to figure out the connection with bromelain and papain enzymes. My daughter is allergic to pineapple enzyme but on occasion something "not appearing as a pineapple" will cause her an allergic reaction I can not find a "list" of other fruits with these enzymes....been hunting from one site to another.
    I see they are both protease enzymes so maybe that is the connection. But what fruits have those?

    Bromelain comes from pineapples. Papain from papayas.
