COMMON FOOD ALLERGIES

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


The most common food allergies are dairy and wheat (with corn not far behind). When testing, carefully check labels for dairy, wheat and corn, (and their less obvious appearances as whey, syrup, bran, etc.). These three most common offenders are found in a wide array of foods.

Depression, anger, and headaches are frequently caused by food allergies/ intolerances. Why not do your own free testing to see if that is happening with you?

Additionally, any other foods that you regularly consume, or for which you have cravings, are likely culprits. Dr. Mandell states that "over the past twenty-five years, my colleagues and I have found that

wheat, potatoes, chicken, corn, pork, lettuce, coffee, oranges, soy products, cane sugar, carrots, peanuts, milk, totatoes, green beans, eggs, yeast, oats, beef apples, chocolate

are prominent among the foods that often cause allergic reactions in our patients" (Mandell and Scanlon 1980, 115). The above listed foods have become overly important to our diets, both in their plain forms and also in their combined forms. Because of such high levels of ingestion, many people have become highly allergic to these foods.
