Tree Nut Allergy – Causes, Symptoms and Ayurvedic Treatment

उपशेतेयदौचित्यादोकसात्म्यंतदुच्यते||४९|| (च.सू.६/४९)

Tree nut allergies are among the most common food allergies in both children and adults. The six tree nut allergies most commonly reported by children and adults are allergies to walnut, almond, hazelnut, pecan, cashew, and pistachio. Most children who are allergic to one or more tree nuts do not outgrow their tree nut allergy. An allergic reaction usually happens within minutes after being exposed to an allergen, when proteins in the nut bind to IgE antibodies made by the person’s immune system. This binding triggers the person’s immune defenses, leading to reaction. Anaphylaxis is the most serious type of allergic reaction.

According to Ayurveda Science Asatmya means unwholesome and Satmya means suitability to some things, which are favorable for one’s own self. A substance can be Asatmya to an individual in the form of aahara and vihara which when consumed may cause an altered response in the body of that individual. All types of food allergies can be related with this concept.

Tree nuts can cause a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Allergic reactions can be unpredictable, and even very small amounts of tree nuts can cause one.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Tree Nut Allergy

Any dietary substance will become Asatmya to a person if there is improper digestive fire or Agni. Digestive fire of the body (Agni) becomes weak due to amavisha (metabolic toxin) formation in the body and causes an imbalance of doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha are life forces) in the body. Treatment involves Shamanachikitsa (internal medicines), Shodhana chikitsa (Panchakarma therapy), lifestyle modifications, and a very strict diet regimen.
