How to Get Relief from Oat Milk Allergy? An Ayurvedic Expert’s Guidance

Ayurveda offers effective solutions for Oat milk allergy treatment. It is a type of allergy that may produce symptoms including nausea, diarrhea, and nasal congestion.

Oat milk can initiate allergic reactions in individuals who are allergic to proteins present in oats called avenin. The condition produces symptoms such as blotchiness, running nose, itchiness in the eyes, and nausea, and in severe cases, it may result in Anaphylaxis. It is important to remember that the stomach ache or other symptoms right after relishing oat milk might be due to some other causes, and it is always a good idea to undergo an allergy profile before moving on to other alternatives of oat milk. 

What is Oat Milk Allergy?

Oat milk can be formed by soaking and then blending oats with water. Later on, the mixture is strained to form a smooth and creamy liquid. The procedure may sound easy, but during the process, there is a transformation in the protein present in oats, which can result in allergic reactions in sensitive people. 

What are the Symptoms of Oat Milk Allergy?

Oat milk can serve as a good option for individuals suffering from soy, dairy, or tree nut allergies. Moreover, it is an excellent choice of food for individuals suffering from gluten sensitivity, but it is best to check the label for gluten-free as there is an increased risk of cross-reactivity, which mixes different grains.

In some sensitive individuals, avenin, a protein present in oats, is treated as a foreign substance, and the defense system starts attacking it and produces oat allergy symptoms. Some of the common symptoms of oat milk allergy are:

  • Skin irritation
  • Blotchiness
  • Rashes in and around the mouth
  • Scratchiness in the throat
  • Running nose
  • Nauseating feeling
  • Vomiting
  • Loose motions
  • Stomach ache

These are the mild symptoms of oat milk allergy. Still, sometimes there can be more severe symptoms, which are regarded as anaphylaxis, which includes difficulty in breathing, tightness in the chest, and sometimes loss of consciousness. 

Is It Possible That You Are Allergic to Oats but Not Oat Milk?

Oat milk also contains a protein called avenin, which is a substance that is identified by the immune system as a foreign body, and in response, it produces an allergic reaction against it. You might feel that oat milk is safe, but the fact is different as the liquid oats have the same degree of risk as that of whole oats. The protein avenin is not removed in the process of making oat milk, and therefore, oat milk and oats both can produce an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. 

How to Get Relief from Oat Milk Allergy?

To Get Relief from Oat Milk Allergy by Oat Milk Allergy Treatment, let’s first understand the Ayurvedic perspective on Oat Milk Allergy.

Incompatibility (Asatmayata)

Ayurveda has its roots in the concept of asatmya or asatmaymata, which simply means incompatibility. The belief is not only limited to incompatible food items, but rather it extends to other factors like season, unique constitution (Prakriti), digestive fire (Agni), and physical and mental health. 

Ayurvedic approach to allergic reactions stresses the individualized approach to diet and lifestyle based on unique constitutions and imbalances. Allergies to certain food items like oats are regarded as a type of asatmayta, which reflects that a particular food item is incompatible with that person. 

Incompatible food items (Virudh Aahar)

The ancient Ayurvedic texts lay huge importance on the avoidance of incompatible food items for holistic health and wellness. Ayurvedic concept strictly prohibits certain combinations of foods like milk and sour fruits, which can disturb the digestive fire or agni and can lead to the production of toxin products or Ama. In addition to some general mismatched food combinations, there are some other factors like incompatibility for their unique body constitution, seasonal variations, and imbalance in doshas.
