Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the treatment of allergies, according to studies.
Allergies are a faulty reaction of the immune system responses against harmful substances that enter the body.
Symptoms and diseases associated with allergies include sinus swelling, seasonal and returning allergies, hay fever and nasal allergies.
Believe or not, Penicillin, antibiotic medicine is the most common allergy trigger in drug allergies. 10 percent of people are allergic after using the medicine.
According to the statistics, in the US, approximately, more than 50 million Americans have experienced various types of allergies each year and 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18.
In other words, 1 in 13 children suffers from a food allergy. About 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food.
The findings strongly suggested that foods are the most common and major cause of allergic onset.
Dr. Ruchi S. Gupta and colleagues in the allergic team in examining the food allergies in children wrote, "Overall, estimated current FA prevalence was 7.6%,.The most prevalent allergens were peanut (2.2%), milk (1.9%), shellfish (1.3%), and tree nut (1.2%)".
And, "Among food-allergic children, 42.3% reported ≥1 severe FA and 39.9% reported multiple FA. Furthermore, 19.0% reported ≥1 FA-related emergency department visit in the previous year and 42.0% reported ≥a 1-lifetime FA-related emergency department visit, whereas 40.7% had a current epinephrine autoinjector prescription.
Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.
The rich golden liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.
Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of allergies examined the honey effects in the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR).
The prospective randomized placebo-controlled study included 40 AR patients divided equally into a case group and a control group. All the subjects received a daily dose of 10 mg of loratadine for 4 weeks.
The case group then ingested 1 g/kg body weight of honey daily in separate doses for the 4-week period. The control group ingested the same dose of honey-flavored corn syrup as a placebo.
According to the AR symptoms scored at the start, week 4, and week 8 of the study, at week 4, both groups showed progressive improvement in the symptoms, however, at week 8, only the case group showed continuous improvement in the symptom score.
The ingested honey group showed a significant improvement in individual AR symptoms after week 8 and the efficacy in reducing the symptoms persisted for a month after the cessation of the honey treatment.
The results suggested that honey processed certain chemical compounds that were not found in the corn syrup for the treatment of AR.
Some researchers suggested that long-term intake of raw honey can help to ameliorate allergy symptoms by regularly exposing to pollen, similarly to the allergy injection in desensitizing pollen-program.
If this result is true then only local honey can process the anti-AR symptoms compared to honey unlocalized pollen.
Taken altogether, honey may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and treatment of AR symptoms, regardless of the types of honey, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
