What are food allergies?

fruits_vegetablesPeople seem to be allergic to so many different foods these days.  Some of the more common are to corn, wheat, nuts and strawberries (to name only a few).  Unprocessed, natural foods right from nature are where most allergy foods come from.  So what is going on?  The idea that a food created to sustain life can cease to feed and actually destroy life does not seem right.

Over the years I have come to understand food allergies in a different light.  These foods are not a poison to the body but the nutrition they provide is too detoxifying.  Instead of being the enemy these foods are actually trying to clear toxic waste from the body.   Think of what happens when allergy foods are eaten.  A few examples would be:

  • Anaphylaxis, causes an itchy rash, throat swelling, ect… (massive movement of toxins) or
  • Hives break out over the skin, (backed-up liver trying to push waste out through the skin), or
  • Bowels turn to liquid, (body flushing toxic waste through the bowels)

With a food capable of doing such a powerful detoxing work in your body it is important to support this food in the work it is capable of doing.  Many years ago a friend shared her story with me.

Jackie’s Experiment

Jackie was dangerously allergic to strawberries.  One little bit would bring on Anaphylaxis, causing her throat to swell shut.  Trusting the natural healer’s wisdom she had studied she decided to put it to the test.  After several months deep cleansing with the liver flushes and kidney flushing she decided to take a small nibble of strawberry.

She was in the middle of a week of liver flushing when she began her experiment.  She described what happened over the next few days.

The first day after ingesting a little nibble of strawberry she broke out in a hive over her heart.  Continuing her liver flushing program the hive cleared from the heart area and reappeared over her stomach.  To make a long story short she continued consuming a small nibble of strawberry each day for the next week or so.  The hive worked its way down her trunk breaking out over every major organ.  When the process was over and the strawberry had done the extreme work of detoxing it needed to do she was able to eat strawberries like anyone else.

Breaking out in a hive while doing a liver flush indicates a huge amount of toxins are being moved out. The liver uses the skin to detox when it is unable to move the waste out through regular channels. The small amount of strawberry she consumed each day did a massive amount of detoxing.  Some nutrient in the strawberry was exactly what her body needed to accomplish the detox necessary for her to be truly well.

Proceed with Caution

This was a very serious step for her to take.  I would never suggest someone do a program such as Jackie did unless they have been doing a serious cleansing program for 3 to 6 months or longer.  If the immune system is not equipped to handle the huge amount of toxins released for removal by the allergy food the situation could become serious.

On that word of caution I will also add that lesser food allergies could be cleared more quickly and without much concern. You have found a food that has a work to do in your body.  Prepare your system to handle this work with a few weeks of good liver and kidney flushing.  God’s creation is not our enemy but at times it can be too friendly.  Learn how to allow the nutrition we have been given for our food to do the work it needs to do in your body.
