Good news if your child has a peanut oil allergy.
There are new immuno-therapy, natural allergy cures.
Most of us know kids with food allergies such as a peanut oil allergy, and even with the Epi pen, parents need to constantly be on guard. This is about to change.
Fortunately, natural cures for allergies, especially peanut allergies in children, are around the corner!
Allergies treatments are going to do an about face.
Rather than avoiding foods, like for a peanut butter allergy, doctors will instead be exposing kids with nut allergies to VERY small doses, and encourage babies to try these foods soon after weaning! Why?
Peanut oil allergy treatments have been crisis treatments. We all know the warnings for nuts and peanut butter allergy in schools, and anaphylaxic shock, so it is very serious.
But this is soon to change…
The old crisis treatments could change drastically, soon. Why?
Researchers in Europe, the US and Canada are finding better food allergy treatments – milk allergies, nut allergies and other food allergies.
Scientists have successfully been giving micro doses of peanuts to kids with a severe peanut oil allergy, so that eventually these kids can actually eat a few peanuts without ANY reaction or going into shock.
After a year, these kids could eat up to 5
peanuts a day without a problem. While this peanut allergy treatment is
not a cure, it sure beats the risk of shock or death.
These kids still needed to keep taking a daily dose of the allergen, or the allergy would come back. But this is better than living in fear, or having your whole school treat your peanut oil allergy by banning all peanuts!
Treatment for allergies is going to use “immune-therapy.” These 2 new allergies treatments are based new ways to deal with immune over-reaction:
Because allergies are reactions of the immune system to an unwanted or unrecognized food or irritant, thinking these foods to be a “threat.” Sometimes the reaction is very sudden and life threatening. Seemingly the immune system can be “trained” not to over-react.
The new food allergy advice for small kids will likely be to start to eat allergenic foods soon after they are weaned – shrimp, eggs, strawberries, peanut butter and so forth.
They need exposure, rather than avoidance, will be the new theory against a food allergy.
It will be understood that to expose babies and toddlers, they will need good immune defenses. Only if they have a healthy variety of gut bacteria, will they be able to be allergy free for life.
2. RE-establishing friendly gut bacteria
Improving gut bacteria also stops this “over-reaction” for a
balanced immune response. Auto immune responses like allergic reactions
are being related to missing healthy gut bacteria.
When there is an imbalance, it stimulates the “killer immune cells” to over react.
But with a good balance of friendly bacteria in the gut, this immune response normalizes, and no longer goes “go over the top” with life-threatening response. This approach will revolutionize the treatment for allergies.
Scientists are learning that in order to get a healthy immune system, a child needs a variety of friendly bacteria in their gut!
Yes, our gut is the keeper of healthy “bugs” or bacteria needed not only for digestion, but for a strong immune system.
A toddler’s immune system is still developing, and it seems that being exposed to a variety of foods and every day bacteria is best. So stay tuned as researchers who are studying the “microbiome.”
No more need to go into crisis, with a life-threatening shut down – in reaction to a food that is generally not harmful. Or to pollen, to dust, to bee stings, to strawberries, to shrimp, to eggs!
A baby’s or toddler’s immune system is still forming, and the new thinking is that the immune actually needs to be exposed to a wide variety of foods so it can recognize these as “friendly” rather than “harmful.”
This includes both foods and household bacteria!
What’s a great source of friendly bacteria?
From vegetables you eat, and from the soil. So you can give your kids organic veggies with only a rinse, or not. Or pull the carrot straight out of the ground and eat! It may be for a good reason that your toddler sits on the ground and happily eats dirt.
So relax, and don’t clean up as much.
Yes, keep them away from toxins and chemicals, but not from every day bacteria on your vegetables and household surfaces!
Forget anti-bacterial soaps!
These kill most bacteria, except they leave the toughest bugs to multiply and cause havoc. Balance is the key! Wash your hands with soap, but not too much.
How do kids get the best start in life?
We certainly now know that taking antibiotics destroy these friendly gut bacteria.
Here's what researchers have found about probiotics as natural allergy remedies.
Scientists know that probiotics have an "immune modulating" or immune regulating effect.
Alongside a medical peanut oil allergy treatment, probiotics have been found to be very effective.
Adding Probiotics made immunnotherapy more effective as a peanut oil allergy treatment for kids, according to the research headed by Dr. Tang.
