What Causes Hives on my Skin?

Hives frequently caused by food sensitivity

Hives is usually a sudden onset reaction - frequently after eating a particular food. Such food sensitivity is when your immune system reacts badly to certain proteins - and it triggers inflammation anywhere in the body. If it happens at the dermis - the result is itchy skin and rashes - either as eczema or psoriasis or in some cases - hives.

The good news is - getting your diet right means no more hives - ever.

 

 

How common are hives?

There are many international statistics about hives - also known as urticaria – and most indicate it is an extremely common condition:

  • Around 40 million Americans suffer from hives at any one time

Hives are the result of an immune response in the body - usually to the presence of an 'unrecognised protein' - as in food intolerance.

Hives are characterised by repeated eruptions of itchy red wheals on the skin. Episodes of hives can last six weeks or longer. Each red patch may only last twenty four hours. But each fading wheal is quickly replaced by new eruptions while ever the immune response continues to happen.

To heal your hives you must identify and remove the source of the immune repsonse - the 'foreign' protein . . . (discover your food sensitivity - and adjust your diet.) There are only four main food intolerances which can cause hives.

What are the causes of hives?

Hives are very commonly caused by undiagnosed and untreated food intolerances (food sensitivities) - particularly to certain proteins:

If you have food intolerance but don't realise - eventually other symptoms will appear. That's why it's best to find out which one you have now. Up to three in four people have some type of food sensitivity.

The easiest and safest way to test for food intolerance is by using a Journal. It's easy! Simply track changes in your symptoms as you switch a few foods.

How does food intolerance cause hives?

Food intolerance causes partially digested proteins (say from gluten, casein in milk and yeasts) to get into your bloodstream. These are not recognised as 'friendly' by your immune system. The immediate response is to set up inflammation in your body:

  • Inflammation at the joints causes stiffness and Arthritis
  • Inflammation in the lungs or nasal passages: respiratory congestion, Asthma and cough
  • Inflammation at the skin can cause Hives, Eczema and Psoriasis

This is how food intolerance can lead to hives! How to stop the inflammation and cure your hives?  . . . identify your Problem Food and substitute it for another great food.  The purpose-designed Healing Program is guaranteed to find any food intolerance.

What if I do nothing about my hives?

You can choose to do nothing of course. But the source of the hives - your underlying food intolerance - will continue to impact your body and your health. First it leads to chronic symptoms (those you suffer every day of your life). But later they can develop into chronic disease.

We don't want that to happen - so we provide lots of free information so you can make informed decisions. To find out more - sign up for the Free E-book 'How to Tell If You Have Food Intolerance'

Which food intolerance? How do I find the cause of my hives?

Nobody can tell from symptoms alone - it could be any of the main intolerances because symptoms overlap.

But with a purpose-designed Journal you make a few notes each day as you switch a few foods. It's easy and fun! And it finds the cause of your hives in just 21 days . . . Healing Program
