May is National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month. The 2015 allergy season has already been an extremely active one!

If you think your allergies are worse than usual, you may be right – warmer falls and exceptionally cold winters as we had this past year can cause trees and plants to produce more pollen.

Food for Thought About Food Allergies

Posted by: HealthySelf Guest Blogger on May 11, 2015 in Health, Nutrition

The following post was written by Woman’s Nutrition Services Department.

May is Food Sensitivity Awareness month.  Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies.   Food allergies affect up to 5% of children and 4% of adults causing an economic impact of nearly 25 billion dollars per year!

A food allergy is a specific and reproducible immune response to certain foods that you eat. It can be as mild as a rash or as severe as life threatening anaphylaxis.

According to the CDC, food allergies are on the rise and increased 18% between 1997 – 2007.  The reason for this is unclear.

ACHIEVE2

Achievable — “It can occur”

Individuals unknowingly have both primary and secondary goals. Often, weight loss is viewed as the primary goal when it is actually the secondary goal. The primary goal is to feel better, get in a smaller size clothing, be healthier, and perform activities of daily life with little to no stress.

These are the smaller, more important goals that a person has already achieved by just committing to a lifestyle change. Your goals are achievable.

Take a moment every two weeks to write down the many ways you’ve accomplished your goals thus far and be proud of your progress!
