Fish allergies have considerably increased in the past few years due to the growing trend of consumption of seafood. Approximately, 1 percent of the population suffers from fish allergy. It includes allergy to scaly fish, shellfish, bony fish, etc.
Fish allergy is an abnormal response of the body’s immune system to the proteins found in fish. It occurs due to the over-reaction of the immune system. It occurs when the immune system of an individual fails to recognize the proteins found in fish as harmless and attacks against them thinking them to be harmful pathogens and produces antibodies against them by releasing histamines and other harmful chemicals.
Cause of Fish Allergy – According to Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, Satmya (Homologation) is one of the investigable points of Dashavidha Pariksha which has been described by the ancient sages. A substance can be indigestible or Asatmya to an individual in the form of ahara (diet) and vihara (lifestyle) which when consumed may result in an altered response in the body of an individual. All the allergic responses occurring in the body can be correlated to Asatmyata.
