Oral Allergy Syndrome - Causes, Symptoms, and Ayurvedic Treatment

What is Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS)?

Oral Allergy Syndrome is a group of allergic symptoms caused by the body’s immune response toward certain allergens in food. Allergens in the pollen grains react with proteins in fruits and vegetables and cause some allergic manifestations in the mouth. The symptoms will not appear by intake of cooked vegetables as the proteins get destroyed by heat. In Ayurveda, such a condition is explained under the concept of Virudha. It mentions the effect of the consumption of certain incompatible food items.


We at IAFA® provide definite Ayurveda treatment for Oral Allergy Syndrome. Dr. Gupta’s IAFA® has initiated several awareness programs about allergies, its symptoms, prevention, and treatment.

Causes of Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS)

Oral Allergy Syndrome is caused by the dropping of pollen grains on raw vegetables and fruits. The body recognizes similar proteins in pollen and vegetables and starts reacting to them. Most commonly, allergens are seen in:

  • Avocado, Apple, almond, carrot, celery, cherry, kiwi, etc.
  • Grass pollen in celery, melons, oranges, tomatoes, etc.
  • Ragweed pollen in bananas, cucumbers, melons, etc.

Ayurveda says combination of certain food items, mismatching quantity of drug combination, improper processing of food, untimely intake of food etc. are responsible for causing various allergic manifestations.
