Tree Nut Allergy

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 defences, 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.
