Can a person experience an acute rage behavior brought on by a food allergy?
- Absolutely! One bad one is sugar -- believe it or not. Many children are often treated for hyperactivity, when all that is needed is a cut-back on their sugar intake. Too much sugar in some people can cause depression, moodiness, irritability and such, depending on that person's personality rages.
There are many other reasons for rage. Some medications can even cause this. An example is an SSRI for depression (although there is usually a warning with this medication). Many times medications are overlooked as the cause of rage, irritability or depression. Please check with your doctor if you are on any medications. In some cases, an aspirin swallowed by a person who is allergic to it can cause him to go into a rage. But this rage is short-lived and only lasts until the aspirin leaves his system.
Obviously, this topic is of concern to you, so please cut back on pop, caffeine, alcohol, and chocolate, and try cutting down on too many sweets. If on medication, please check with your doctor.
- Absolutely! My family is sensitive/allergic to monosodium glutamate (MSG), and aspartame. All of us. Since we learned to avoid MSG by knowing the names it hides under (natural flavoring, yeast extract, broth, spices, carmel coloring, texturized vegetable protein, modified starch, isolated protein, whey, citric acid, boullion, vinegar, molasses, glutamate, sodium phosphate) and to refuse aspartame, we never have rage or uncontrolled anger. I am not exaggerating. We get comments on how mellow and tolerant we are as a family. And we eat plenty of sugar and drink loads of caffeine. I found the info through Dr. R. Blaylock and his book on excitotoxins. Also helpful was the list of hidden sources of MSG from www.nomsg.com. It means lots of label-reading but you WILL see a difference. Be careful of the yeast-based vitamins too.

Food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating a certain food. Even a tiny amount of the allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as d…igestive problems, hives or swollen airways. In some people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even a life-threatening reaction known as anaphylaxis. Food allergy affects an estimated 6 to 8 percent of children under age 5, and about 3 to 4 percent of adults. While there's no cure, some children outgrow their food allergy as they get older. It's easy to confuse a food allergy with a much more common reaction known as food intolerance. While bothersome, food intolerance is a less serious condition that does not involve the immune system. For some people, an allergic reaction to a particular food may be uncomfortable but not severe. For other people, an allergic food reaction can be frightening and even life-threatening. Food allergy symptoms usually develop within a few minutes to two hours after eating the offending food. Food allergies can occur even the first time you eat a food. The most common food allergy symptoms include: 1.Tingling or itching in the mouth 2.Hives, itching or eczema 3.Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat, or other parts of the body 4.Wheezing, nasal congestion or trouble breathing 5.Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting 6.Dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting
food allergies can be diagnosed at any time of your life. you can form an immunity to food when your body cant process it or bring it to the right place. they can suddenly tri…gger at any given time.
Hi, . What Causes Allergy? . Allergies are caused by an over-sensitive immune system that mistakenly identifies generally harmless substances as harmful invaders and attack…s them. It is not known why some people develop over-sensitive immune systems but the following factors seem to play a role: . Hereditary Predisposition: There is a strong genetic link in the development of allergies. Parents with allergies have a higher risk of having children with allergies. Predisposition to an allergy is called atopy . Age: Allergies are more likely to develop during childhood and tend to get better or disappear in adulthood . Asthma: People with asthma are at an increased risk of developing an allergy . Environmental Factors: Increasing global pollution, exposure to industrial and household chemicals and growing up in a house with smokers increases the risk of a child developing an allergy . Medications: There appears to be a link between the use of antibiotics in childhood and developing allergies . How is allergy diagnosed? . Family history and physical examination . Skin prick test to identify potential allergens . A blood test called a radio-allergo-sorbent test (RAST) measures the amount of IgE antibody in the blood and the immune system's response to specific allergens . A skin patch test can be performed to identify allergens causing eczema So I think the answer to you question would be No.
Multiple food intolerance and food allergies are complicated issues. Let's take food intolerance, for example. Many people cannot tolerate wheat, gluten or dairy for various …reasons. Much would depend on why the person is intolerant- has it always been that way, or did something change in their system to make the body's response to the food change? Is there a need for food enzymes or probiotic supplements? These are questions for your doctor for your specific food intolerance. A true food allergy, however is different. It is more severe than an intolerance, and may be seen through an anaphylactic response, like hives or extreme swelling. An allergy is an immune response. It is the result of your immune system mistaking something good for something bad, and it attempts to destroy it. Food allergies cause inflammation and this occurs because of imbalances in the gut, which is like our secondary immune system. On this subject, I highly recommend Chapter 9 entitled "Fix your Digestion" in Dr. Mark Hyman's book "The UltraMind Solution." He is a practitioner of Functional Medicine and can help in this area. One of the functions of glutathione is it is an immune system balancer or optimizer. If your immune system is overactive, or you have a true food allergy, glutathione can re-balance your immune system to overcome the allergic response. A food intolerance should be addressed through a digestive specialist. You may need additional supplements or may need to avoid the sensitive food altogether.
Some behaviors that can contaminate food include toileting, notwashing hands, chewing fingernails, picking nose, bad body odor,and scratching face or behind.
People with food allergies are free to eat any food to which they are not allergic.
I am a long-time sufferer of food allergies, and it is amazing what they can do to you. In general, having a food allergy means that when you eat the food you are allergic …to, you get sick in some way. However, different foods effect different people in many different ways. Stomachaches and gas problems are very common with food allergies. If you keep on eating what you are allergic to, this may seem like a chronic condition. It may not sound like much, but it is very uncomfortable. Intestinal problems are also common with food allergies. However, there are other effects which may not be so well-known. Food allergies can make you feel extremely tired all the time. They can make you constantly lose your focus and cncentration. You won't be able to think quite right. You can get headaches almost all the time, and for girls, it can make your period be extremely painful. There are many other side effects as well, but listing them all out could take a lot of time. I suggest that if you have food allergies, you get a blood test done to figure out what you are allergic to. Once you pull food out of your diet it could take up to two months to start feeling better. So the sooner you get started, the sooner you'll feel better.

It is the sum of experience that determines the outcome of the decision-making process. This is a way of saying that a person's behavior can be explained. However, explaining …does not justify. Let me try it this way: no one is ever responsible for what is done to them , but they are responsible for what they do with it.
This question a bit personal. If they wanted to tell us if they had allergires, they would. So don't worry about it.
You should be tested by an allergist so you are aware of the specific foods you are allergic to. Those are the foods you should always avoid.
