The Congestion Connection

The Congestion Connection

It’s always a good idea to eat less meat and bump up your consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits. However, if you suffer from hay fever, some of that produce may be a problem. 

For reasons still unclear, the immune systems of people with hay fever sometimes react to certain fruits and vegetables, especially bananas and melons. If you are allergic to ragweed, for example, eating a banana or a slice of watermelon could trigger additional stuffiness. If you are allergic to grass pollen, then apples and cherries could set off a torrent of congestion.  

Some people with this type of multiple allergy, known as cross-reactivity, are sensitive to trouble foods all year long. In most cases, though, congestion flares in the spring when pollen counts, and the body’s level of histamine, are already high. 

All of these foods are perfectly healthy-unless you're sensitive to them. Watch your reaction whenever you eat these foods, and ask your doctor if these or other foods might be contributing to the problem. Your doctor may want to do a food sensitivity test on your blood to see what you may react to.
