Tomato Allergy

By

Allergy To TomatoesWho would have thought that you could be allergic to tomatoes? After all they are supposed to be healthy aren't they?It is rare to have a severe reaction to tomatoes but it is not unheard of for a tomato allergy to cause anaphylactic shock and death!

Most people have what would normally be classed as an intolerance to tomatoes rather than tomato allergy. So they might not even notice any symptoms, or at least might not relate the symptoms to the tomato. Remember it can take up to 72 hours after we have ingested something for symptoms to present themeselves.

I look at intolerances, sensitivities and allergies as the same thing. I am looking for what is causing a disturbance in our energy system and then I balance the system in relation to the substance, food or whatever it happens to be.

Tomato Allergy

Tomatoes are part of the nightshade allergy family and also contain a high degree of a natural chemical known as salicylate which is related to aspirin and is a derivative of salicylic acid. Some people can not tolerate any amount of salicylate in their diet.

I have found that some people cannot tolerate anything from the nightshade group whereas others can just have a problem with one. Some will only have a problem with raw tomatoes whilst others will not be able to tolerate processed tomatoes, tomato sauce, canned tomatoes or cooked tomatoes.

Nightshade Allergy Family

Nightshade plants include:

  • tomatoes
  • potatoes
  • aubergines
  • peppers
  • chili peppers
  • tobacco
  • the deadly nightshade Atropa Belladona

Allergy Treatment using Energy Medicine

Symptoms of Tomato Allergy

Symptoms to look out for that could be related to tomato or nightshade allergy are:

  • gastro-intestinal problems
  • increase in tears, sweat and saliva
  • cystitis
  • abdominal pain
  • cramps or vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • swelling, urticaria (hives)
  • tingling lips
  • rashes, especially around the mouth
  • headaches
  • dermatitis
  • perioral dermatitis
  • oral allergy syndrome
  • rhinitis
  • tightening of the chest
  • difficulty breathing
  • tomato pollen may trigger rhinitis and/or conjunctivitis
  • mental or emotional issues

Symptoms of immediate tomato allergy are:

  • tingling lips
  • swelling face
  • urticaria (hives)
  • tightening of the chest
  • difficulty breathing etc

These are the symptoms of anaphylactic shock and urgent medical assistance will be required!

Are you addicted to tobacco?

If so, then eliminating from your diet or clearing your allergies (if you have them) to tomatoes and other nightshades could help! It could be that your craving for tomatoes, or your tomato allergy is being satisfied by smoking tobacco. Sounds strange doesn't it? Remember we crave what we are allergic to. Clearing all the nightshade group including tobacco could really help with those cravings. I think it's worth a try isn't it?

So you see those lovely little red juicy yummy things that I use in so much of my cooking and love to eat raw, can cause all kinds of problems can't they?

    Can a symptom be ankle/foot edema (pitting)?

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Stacy,

      In my work I would assume that any symptom can be caused by allergy. So in answer to your question I would say, ‘Yes’ ankle/foot edema could be a symptom caused by allergy.

      Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any more questions.

      With love and light,

      • Alexis says:

        Would throat burning be a symptom of tomato allergy? Because every time i eat spaghetti or tomato soup my throat will burn and sometimes last for an hour.

         

        • Hi there Alexis. Yes throat burning could be a symptom of tomato allergy and it sounds likely that it is. Thankfully it doesn’t sound too severe at the moment. It would be a good idea to try to eliminate the allergy though.

          Please let me know if you need any help.

          With love,

          Cathy x

  2. Josh says:

    Hi Stacy,

    Have you ever come across leg/knee pain as a symptom of a tomato intolerance? I’ve been suffering from unexplained chronic leg pain over the past few years and I’m trying to work out any possible cause!

    Thanks

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Josh,

      I personally haven’t come across it specifically but that’s not to say tomato allergy is not the cause or part of the cause. Can you self muscle test? If you have never tried then I invite you to watch my self muscle test video to learn how to do it. There could be some emotions or trauma held there as well. I have someone putting the finishing touches to my manual and then I will be ready to launch my Allergy Healing System. It looks like it should be ready by the end of August.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions. I will be away from the office for a couple of weeks but then after that I will be all yours.

      With love and light,

      Cathy x

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Josh, I’m so sorry for calling you Stacy! I just realised whilst reading through my comments! I think I need to get away from my computer a bit more. I hope I answered your question. With love, Cathy x

  3. Lynda says:

    I have a client that eats tomato ketchup but says he is allergic to tomatoes. If he eats a tomatoe he has severe vomitting and ends up in hospital with dehydration.
    Can he just be allergic to raw tomatoes but not if they are cooked?

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Lynda. Yes people can be allergic to raw tomatoes but not cooked. This is really common.

  4. Ms. Davies,
    I recently suffered from a rash over my entire body. I am not sure what caused it. I have never had a problem eating tomatoes in the past whether they be cooked or raw, store bought or garden grown. I recently ate some small cherry like green tomatoes in several salads. Could this be the causation of my rash even though I have never experienced problems with tomatoes in the past? Is there anyway to determine if these tomatoes were/are the cause?
    Roger Mendoza recently posted..Hay Fever – Is ‘Healthy Food’ Making It Worse?My Profile

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Roger,
      Thank you for your question. The way I would determine whether these tomatoes were the cause of a rash, apart from trying them again to see what happens (depending on the severity of the rash I might not recommend trying again. Please take care), is to try self-muscle testing. The link will take you to my Easy Self-Muscle Test video.

      For some reason these particular tomatoes could be causing you a problem. Through self muscle testing you can determine whether your energy system is in or out of alignment with those tomatoes. If muscle testing shows that you are out of alignment, then it could well be those tomatoes that are the culprit. Maybe there are chemicals on them that you are reacting to? I would hold one of those tomatoes in my energy field and self-muscle test.

      Can you think of anything else that was happening around that time? Were you in contact with anything different? Had you changed your washing detergent or fabric conditioner? Any emotional factors like stress? You could test anything that you suspect, even emotions!

      Another option would be to find a Allergy Antidotes or NAET Practitioner who could do it for you.

      I would love to hear how to get on. Let me know if you need help.

      With love and light,

  5. Grace says:

    Hello. I have recently discovered that I have an intolerance to tomatoes (raw and cooked). I did an elimination diet to determine this. I am now wondering if maybe my PCOS could be related to this allergy…?

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi there.

      Symptoms of allergy vary from person to person. However many symptoms of the genito-urinary tract are caused by food allergy so it’s definitely a possibility that your PCOS could be related to a tomato allergy. Did you eliminate anything else when you did your diet? Have you been back to your doctor since doing the elimination diet to have a scan? How do you feel the elimination diet determined that you have an intolerance to tomatoes? Do you feel better for not having tomatoes? Have your symptoms reduced or disappeared?

      If you have any more questions please ask away.

      With love and light,

    Hello,
    I had a food allergy (on eggs and spices…) when i was a child , now its been 2 weeks that i thought it is a food allergy because of the rash on my skin.. I went to a doctor he told me tht it may be erythema annulare centrifugum because of there shapes on my skin, but im feeling that the day i eat tomatoes i wake up with A rash on my skin not all over my body as it was before but a bit on my face and my neck… Is it possible that it is food allergy (tomatoes) and not erythema annulare centrifugum? And stress could cause such things? Because i have been under stress for more than a month and im always stressful…
    Thank u…

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Mel,

      If you have erythema annulare (although it is commonly mis-diagnosed) then one of the documented possible causes is tomatoes! Another cause is a weakened immune system. Stress weakens the immune system so it is very important to find a way to deal with your stress. When your immune system is weakened you are more likely to react to substances.

      I have written a chapter on how to relieve stress in my manual which is in the ‘Allergy Balancing System’. It is such an important factor in eliminating allergies and indeed living a healthier and longer life.

      Make sure that you go back to your doctor if the rash persists.

      Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

      With love and light,

    I have an issue with raw tomato, It causes joint pain, similar to arthritis pain, my mother suffered the same symptom. Took me a while to figure it out.Eliminate the tomato, eliminate the joint pain.Gotta be worth a try.

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Thanks for your comment, it is really helpful. I am so pleased that you got to the bottom of the cause of your joint pain. I was talking about this very point yesterday! When someone comes to me with joint pain or arthritis, tomatoes are one of the first substances that I test. I then treat them with the same techniques I teach in my Allergy Balancing System And I agree, anything has gotta be worth a try. Different things work for different people. With love, Cathy x

  8. Alexis says:

    I have a tomato allergy and found its really hard to cook and eat out without tomato product. Check out my blog, STINKY TOMATO, for recipes and non-tomato substittues!

  9. Marianne says:

    It seems as though I do okay with regular tomatoes but when I eat tomatoe sauce my throat closes up what would cause that?

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Marianne,

      It could be that you are reacting to something else in the tomato sauce other than the tomatoes. Or maybe you have an allergy to cooked tomatoes but not raw.

    Hi,

    A relative of mine has a severe allergy to tomatoes.  When the family went out (to a pizza place), she did not join us…. which is understandable.  However, later we got together at one of our homes to celebrate a birthday, and she refused to come to the party claiming that our "breath and hands would be contaminated".   Is this possible?

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi May,

      This does sound like a severe allergy if your relative is worried about breath and hands being contaminated. Is it possible? – well it’s one of those things that you wouldn’t want her to try to find out!Some people are very sensitive. I suppose it depends on how she is affected by tomatoes. Is it when she eats them or touches them or both? It sounds like she has a lot of fear around this allergy and she could do with taking control of it before she becomes totally house bound. She must come into contact with people all the time who could have just eaten tomatoes. If her allergy has stopped her from going to a family party, I am concerned that she might stop going out altogether if she starts to think about how “contaminated” most people must be.

      Hope this helps.

  12. Inez says:

    Boy, I hope you can help me!  I have a reaction (almost immediately) when I've eaten ketchup, cocktail sauce, or salsa, but it doesn't happen every time.  The palms of my hands and bottoms of my feet itch like crazy – actually they feel like one big red ant bite!  (If you've ever had one of those, you know that scratching it doesn't really help.) The "itching" is severe for about 20 minutes then gradually subsides in about 30 minutes.  Do you think this might be tomatoes or something different?

    Thanks – any help or insight is greatly appreciated!

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Inez,

      It’s strange that it doesn’t happen every time you eat these things. I would start a food diary and make a note of the brands of these sauces. Also look at the ingredients. It could be that the offending substance is in some brands but not in others. Sometimes you have to be a real detective.

      You could also treat yourself whilst you are reacting by putting a little of the sauce in a glass and following what I told Tiffany to do. Keep going until the symptoms start to subside.

      Another contributing factor to allergic reactions is stress. Make a note in your diary of how you feel when you have a reaction. Are you under a lot of stress?

      I teach how to do all of this in my Allergy Balancing System.

      Does that help? I hope so.

      With love and light,

      Cathy x

       

       

  13. Tiffany says:

    Hi!

    I have a very weird situation regarding tomatoes and rashes. I can eat tomatoes and do not suffer from any of the symptoms above, but when I cut them and get the juice on my hands, they turn red in patches and burn like crazy
    About a half hour later its faded, but there will be little scratches of broken skin where ever the patches were. Any advice on that? I love tomatoes and do not want to pull them out of my diet if I can help it. I’ve tried using plastic gloves but I’m a bit of a messy cook and always manage to get juice in the glove.
    Thanks!
    Tiffany

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Ooh sounds nasty!….. and I don’t blame you for not wanting to pull tomatoes out of your diet.

      I would take a glass with the juice of tomatoes in it and treat by tapping as in EFT or using a laser or both. I teach how to do this in my Allergy Balancing System. This rebalances the system in relation to the offending substance, which in this case is the tomato juice. If you go to my Allergy Balancing System page by clicking above, you can get free access to my Hay Fever treatment video which gives you an idea of how this works.

      There could be some emotional trauma connected with the tomato juice. Do you know when you first reacted? If you were too young, can you ask someone? What was happening in your life then? I also teach how to find out and treat emotional links to allergies in my Allergy Balancing System. I know it might sound a bit weird but I find that trauma plays a big part in allergies.

      The Allergy Kit is really great for self treating allergies as well and works on the same principles as my system. It contains energy frequency vials containing the most common allergens, which helps strengthen your immune system and eliminate your allergies.

      I hope this helps. Please ask if you have any more questions.

      With love and light,

  14. Michaelene Davies says:

    I always wondered why I got so sick after eating certain things. I noticed tomatoes to be a pattern. I can eat them raw cooked canned. Anything. But they just don't agree with me like milk and lactose intolerance. Your article shed quite a bit of light on this topic for me. Thank you!! 

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Thank you so much for your comment. I am so pleased that I have been able to shed light on your sensitivity to tomatoes. As this is all very new to so many people, I do wonder sometimes if I am explaining myself properly in my writing, so your feedback is very valuable to me. Thank you! x

  15. Cathy says:

    Hi Everyone,

    If you have a problem eating or touching tomatoes it could be that you have an allergy to Vitamin C. You should treat yourself to this because if you are allergic you will not be absorbing it properly. You can go through any supplements you are taking and treat yourself for them. This is a good idea to do for your general health and well being anyway.

    With love and light,

  16. Ruth Wittenburg says:

    I have tomato allergy diagnosed by an allergist. I take L-Lysine if I eat any tomato product, raw or cooked to control it. I get sores in my mouth-including on my tongue and my gums if I don't immediately take 250 mgs of the lysine. I love tomatoes and wish I could eat them more often, but once a week is all my system can handle.

     

    • Catherine Davies says:

      I really feel for you, that sounds nasty! Have you ever thought of trying to eliminate your allergy? You should eliminate allergies as they weaken your system, making you more susceptible to becoming allergic to other things.  You could try my system or   The Allergy Kit . They offer a solid money back guarantee. In fact you get to try it (premium kit) for $1 for one month! It is a fantastic opportunity for you to try it before you buy it.

  17. peter b says:

    I have found that certain raw tomatoes give me extreme upper abdominal pain to the point it gets difficult to breath and the only solution was to force it up and get rid of it. i have had circumatances where i thought i was going to die, it took over 6 hours to get the pain to subside it feels like a horrible stomach ache with pain that radiates up through my chest with a feeling of bloating. today i had a case of this after giving a tomato slice on last nights hamburger a try and i was able to get rid of wthe pain with benadryl, antacid and anti gas medication but it took 5 hours of suffering and a wasted trip to the hospital before i bought these items. it was because of this blog that i figured out what was wrong with me so thanks.

    • Catherine Davies says:

      Hi Peter, Thank you for your comment. Your tomato allergy sounds nasty and I am glad that my site has helped you figure out what was wrong. Now that you know, you should consider elimating your allergy or allergies (you might have more that are not producing such obvious symptoms). I really like  The Allergy Kit which helps strengthen your system in relation to the main allergens. Once you have done this, which takes about a month to fully complete, allergies to these substances will be eliminated and you could  find that you no longer react to tomatoes. If you do then you simply go ahead and treat for tomatoes next. You do this by holding a piece of tomato against your body and then tapping a few meridian points on your body or by using a cold laser on your ears. It might sound weird but it works really well! Please ask me if you have any questions. With love, Cathy x

    Hi
    Whenever I eat tomatoes my fingers start itching and back of fingers turns red and dark. Most of the time it appears as if I have peeled the skin. Lemon,tamarind,orange also cause itching but tomato burns like hell. please help.

    • Sorry for the late response. That sounds really uncomfortable. Please read my reply to Cliff. I would recommend the same for you.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

  19. Cliff Buckley says:

    Is it possible for an allergy to tomatoes to appear in middle age? I am 52 and for the last two months have had awful stomach ache, bloating and diarrhea within a couple of hours of eating raw tomato. I don’t recall ever having these symptoms before and enjoy eating tomatoes but after another episode today I will have to stop eating them.

    • Yes it most certainly is! It is called the rain barrel effect. Your body fills up with toxins until one day it can’t cope and it starts reacting to substances that were never a problem before. It is important to find a way to re-balance your system in relation to tomatoes and probably some other substances as well, so that you don’t have more probelms in the future. I would also check your stress levels. Do you feel more stressed than usual? EFT is great for this.

      To rebalance your system I would recommend either my Allergy Balancing System or The Allergy Kit or Sandi Radomski’s Allergy Antidotes.

      All of them are effective. I would research them and go with whichever ‘feels’ right.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

    I have recently come to realize I'm allergic to tomatoes. Normally break out in hives on my hands and have irratated skin (normally around my face but no physical hives on my face only hands). Lasts about a week or so. And my worst reaction was when I had chili pepper flakes my wife's dad makes (ton of lil hot peppers crushed into flakes). I was uncomfortable for an entire month give or take. (Main symptom dermetitis/irritated skin). I'm 99.9% positive this page describes some of the symptoms I go through. And for some odd  reason I can  eat ketchup, spaghetti sauce Etc. and not have a reaction.  I'm sure it's probably  just cooked in the process and loses the potent ingredient my body hates. I only recently discovered what was doing this to my body or at least I hope. I'm going to completely try to cut out all the tomatoes and peppers and hopefully be allergy free. Do my symptoms fall under this category ? My wife thought I was crazy until I pretty much pin pointed the exact  reaction after eating tomatoes. Its nice to know I'm not the only one dealing with this but luckily I don't get nearly half of the symptoms 

  23. Robert M. says:

    P.S. my very first reaction at last that I noticed was a year ago… Which I'm 32 years of age now. All good things come to an end I guess… Bye bye tomatoes (only started to like them in the past 5 years or so)

    • Hi Rob,

      It is a great feeling to know exactly what is causing your symptoms. Sometimes though there are other substances that are weakening your system which allow the tomatoes to cause your symptoms. Cutting out tomatoes is a good idea for now, the problem is, the fact that a substance has caused symptoms means that your system is overloaded and needs rebalancing so that other substances don’t start causing you problems in the future. Also, I do have a problem with cutting food out of our diet that is good for us. Tomatoes are nutritious and alkalising. Have you thought of trying The Allergy Kit? I highly recommend it. There are links on some of the other comments below that you can use to take a look. Please let me know if you have any questions. In the meantime in your words……Bye bye tomatoes!!!!

  24. Kathleen says:

    Hello! I know this is an old thread but I was hoping you could offer some insight. I am allergic to tomatoes, dairy and peanuts. All are internal stomach/gastrointestinal reactions though I do sometimes get itchy. I love dairy and tomatoes and peanuts!! It's hard to find anything to eat when I go out because I eat meat but anything dairy free is usually vegan and vegetarian options generally use tomatoes and peanuts. Do you have any suggestions to alternatives when dining out or specific food types? I have never heard of anything I could take for tomato allergies because mine is not really a rash. For dairy there are pills but I try to avoid it for the sake of less medicine and it never helps too much. 

     

    Thank you!! 

    • Hi Kathleen,

      Sorry I missed your comment!

      Taking pills etc only treats the symptoms of allergies, they don’t treat the cause anyway. In my opinion you have to rebalance your system in relation to the substances that are causing your symptoms. Symptoms can come in all forms, your happen to be mostly stomach/gastrointestinal.

      I would recommend The Allergy Kit to help you eliminate the cause of your allergies. I hope I don’t sound salesy but I think it is well worth the money. It takes about one month to go through and they offer a money back guarantee.

      I don’t believe in having to deny yourself healthy, delicious food!

      I remember when my partner used to take every pill going for his hayfever and he would have to stay inside so much of the time. He is outside, cutting a huge hedge, as we speak without so much as a sniffle! We just re-balanced his system in relation to pollen and whatever is in the air using the same techniques they show you to do in The Allergy Kit. That was about 4 or 5 years ago now!

      Hope this helps. Please ask if you have any more questions.

      With love,

    I am kind of in a bind. Ive noticed since I have been eating tomatoes lately that my mouth and tongue goes numb and my saliva feels like its getting thicker and I get sick. My symptoms arent listed on the allergie lists anywhere. I dont know if i should worry or just live with it. Please help!

    Thank you,

    Wren Petersen

    • Hi Wren,

      I have found that any substance can cause any kind of symptoms.

      I personally don’t believe you should just live with it. I believe that the symptoms are there for a reason, which is to show us that something needs attention. Allergies weaken our system which makes us more susceptible to having a reaction to other substances.

      The Allergy Kit is great for strengthening your system. It includes the main allergens that cause a disruption to our system. Although the kit does not include tomatoes, it could be that another substance or substances are weakening your system so that you are reacting to tomatoes and once treated you no longer react to tomatoes.

      If you find that you are still reacting to tomatoes at the end of the kit, you can then treat your reaction to tomatoes in the way that it teaches in The Allergy Kit. You could use an actual tomato, as well as cooked tomatoes, tomato sauce, etc. I have found that some people don’t have a problem with raw tomatoes but do have a problem with cooked tomatoes – weird isn’t it?

      There could be some stress attached as well. The Allergy Kit comes with a stress vial to help treat that.

      You can visit http://www.TheAllergyKit.com to find out more. I always recommend the premium kit. I know it costs more but it’s worth it for the money back guarantee. They are very helpful and will give you a bit longer if you need it, just in case you need to treat that tomato allergy at the end of the month.

      Hope that helps.

    Hi Cathy.
    I’ve read your post and all the comments but still I’m unsure on my allergy. Me and hubby have put it down to tinned tomatoes I’m allergic to. What is even in tinned tomatoes. I have had horrible hives all over my body for 3 days straight. My feet feel like I am walking on golf balls. And my hands are all bright red and inflamed.
    I’m currently completely covered in calamine lotion.
    Also is it possible my son who I bfeed can get a reaction to it aswell if he has a sensitive as my son has picked up cconjunctivitis. And none of my kids have had it before.

    Thanks in advance for your advice and help.
    Cheers Jen.

    I've had eczema since I was little and it usually only gets bad in the winter, where my skin just gets dry and red and cracked. But lately I get these red spots all over my arms, neck, and back, and it comes out of nowhere. I'm starting to notice that it happens whenever I eat tomatoes, and it doesn't matter how they're prepared. I don't always react right away, but when it happens, I'll be itchy all over with the red spots, and it can last for weeks. Do you think it's an irritant to my eczema or a legitimate food allergy? It only happens when I eat it, and the itchy spots are my only symptom.

  30. Hello, I have been dealing with this allergy since I was 8 years old. First it started out as sores then have developed into the more serious contact allergy. I have been trying to deal with it as best, I can by not coming in contact but seeing as I have to prepare food which is required of me to prepare a tomato dish I find it very difficult to breathe in the fumes that are coming off of the tomato dish as well as I cannot touch the plant. It gives me red spot and if I come in contact with my mouth or face I receive painful blisters. I have a sore on my toe where I pushed a piece of pizza away from me that was sitting on the floor and that has not healed since that was about 5 years ago. I have been trying to heal it and it does not heal, but most topicals it makes the symptoms on my mouth beter or ease the severity; I know but it does not take it away Abreva works best to alleviate most of the stretching sensation I have on my lips when I get these sores and I feel as if there should be something much better that I could be doing when the allergy do arise. it is frustrating for me because I am left with sores for a week or two with no help. if you have any help or suggestions other than avoidance because I do do that is as much as I can but some cases like today I could not avoid it and I developed a sore on my mouth if you have any other suggestions for me please let me know cause I am willing to try anything to treat my symptoms of the allergic reaction to tomatoes, it is not fun, thank you.

    • Hi Crystal,

      Thank you for making contact. It really isn’t fun is it? I can tell from your comments that you are really fed up with this now.

      I suggest you read my response to Lori as I would recommend the same for you.

      This problem with tomatoes is really affecting your life and I really feel that you need to work towards eliminating it. Avoidance is just too difficult and if your system is being weakened by tomatoes it could lead to problems with other substances.

      Take a look at The Allergy Kit website and let me know what you think.

      If you have any questions please ask.

      With love,

    Hello,  my daughter had been dealing with dermatitis around her mouth, swelling lips, severe redness, peeling.  We could not figure out what it was.  I thought it was the paper cups I use after brushing her teeth or the toothpaste.  I changed it and seemed better.  But then I noticed flaring after eating tomato sauce on her pizza and pasta.  I also saw it flare after switching to a carrot, beet sauce substitute instead.  I decided to allergy test her thru igG and igE panel. No allergies showed for either of these.  Only to cow's milk.  But once I took away the tomato sauce, carrot and beet sauce, etc. her face completely cleared up.  But she shows no allergies.  Can she still have a reaction of contact dermatitis even though no immediate allergy or sensitivity shows on the allergy panel?  I am now taking away cheese due to cow's milk allergy.

    • Hi Lori,

      It’s so difficult when these things affect our kids isn’t it? This is tough on us too as parents.

      In my work I use the word, ‘Allergy’ to mean the energy imbalance between the electromagnetic energy of the person and the substance (which can be absolutely anything) that causes unwanted symptoms which can be physical, physiological and/or psychological. These ‘allergies’ don’t always show up in blood tests.

      I would say that the fact that your daughter is reacting the way she is suggests that for some reason her body is seeing tomatoes etc as harmful and is producing symptoms to let her know that it needs attention.

      Your daughter’s energy system needs to be re-balanced in relation to tomatoes as well as other substances.

      The easiest way that I know to do this is to go through The Allergy Kit with her. You will be treating all of the main allergens (including dairy) which will strengthen her system. You might find that is enough to elimate her problem with tomatoes, carrot and beet sauce etc but if not you can then go on to treat them. It takes 1 month to go through doing it for a few minutes every other day. You can get more information from their site at http://www.TheAllergyKit.com

      What I like about The Allergy Kit is that they are committed to your success. They are there if you need to ask a question and so am I. They offer a 100% money back guarantee as well, as they are so confident that it will work.

      How are you feeling about your daughter, Lori? Are you feeling stressed or anxious? As a mother I know how much this stuff can hurt. If you are it’s important to take time out to look after yourself as well. EFT has helped me through so much! You can download free manuals from either  http://www.eftuniverse.com or http://www.emofree.com

      I hope that helps. I am here if you have any more questions.

      With love,

    Hello

    Recently this time of year I eat alot of raw tomatoes. I follow my bloodtype O and since this is a nightshade , tomatoes are suppose to be okay! I have this rash all over that I have not had before. My stress is elevated more than usual. Could this be a factor!!!

    • Hi Lynn,
       

      Thank you for making contact.
       

      What can be ok for one person can cause reactions in another. For some reason the body sees the substance as something to be feared.
       

      Stress can definitely be a big contributing factor to allergies.

      The Allergy Kit actually treats stress with every allergen.
       

      EFT is a fantastic tool for helping with stress and you can learn it for free. I found it in 2005 and have never looked back. It’s a bit odd to do at first but once you get used to it you will find it invaluable. It’s very empowering!
       

      There are free download manuals and lots of information at http://www.eftuniverse.com and http://www.emofree.com
       

      I hope that helps. If you have any more questions just ask.
       
      With love,

    I was slicing a tomato the other day and the juice from the tomato, got underneath my wedding rings….almost immediately I had a horrible reaction….I took off my rings and it looks like burns..just where the rings were.  It itches and it burns. This did happen once before, years ago.  It's only in the one spot and I have no problem eating tomatoes. It has happened so infrequently, that I almost dismiss it…because we have tomatoes almost everyday. This is really annoying.   

    • Hi Jo,

      There could be something else that is weakening your system so that the tomato juice has this affect on these occasions. Can you think of anything – a substance or stress or some other emotional issue, or maybe a memory of a trauma? Is it reminding you of anything from your past?

      I always recommend that you eliminate the cause of allergic reactions. Your system is being weakened and it can lead to further problems in the future.

      Take a look around my site and read some of the other comments to see if you are drawn to anything that I discuss or recommend. You CAN take control of this and you CAN help yourself.

      I am here for you if you need any more help.

      With love,

      Cathy

    Hi there, 

    I have these spots on my face and have done so for about a year or so. I constantly eat tomatos but am worries that maybe I could have an intolerance to them and this could be the cause of my spots. Is this possible? 

    Thanks, 

    Lisa

    • Hi Lisa,

      It could be possible that the spots are a reaction to the tomatoes. I see any symptoms as possible reactions.

      Do you crave tomatoes? If so it is very likely that they are causing you a problem. We are addicted to what we are allergic to. Have you tried cutting tomatoes out of your diet to see what happens?

      I would recommend that you take a look at The Allergy Kit which you can find out more about at the top of the page. Once you rebalance your system in relation to the most common allergens (sugar included) you can go on to rebalance your system in relation to tomatoes.

      Hope that helps. Please ask if you have any more questions.

      With love,

    I have always had a sensitivity to tomatoes and been aware of it, as a baby it was more dermatological. I would get rashes and spots, if my mom ate pizza… or spaghetti… or just plain old tomatoes.  I never really liked the taste of them as a child and got in the habit of ordering pizza with no sauce, ketchup never bothered me and neither did salsa, as I got older, pizza sauce and spaghetti sauce didn't bother me, and I developed a taste for raw fresh tomatoes… I loved a good Bacon and Tomatoe sandwich…. my mouth would hurt a little, (I have a navigators or geographic tongue, so lots of foods bother that but I tolerate it so I can still eat them!!) it stung a little bit but no big deal… those sandwiches were DELICIOUS!!  Then it started getting worse, it would cause intense discomfort in my mouth and digestive track, and burn for quite a while even after I finished my meal.  The next time the symptoms seemed to intensify a little more.  Then this summer I ate what I fear will be my very last Bacon and Tomatoe Sandwich… my throat and tongue started swelling!!  Scary and totally uncool!  As long as it is cooked, I'm cool… but oh those juicy amazing raw fresh from our garden tomatoes that smell soooo wonderful…. such a shame!  Is it common for peoples sensitivity/allergy to get worse??

    • Oh Lori, I feel for you! I love your sense of humour and I LOLed so many times as I read your comment.

      I hate to say it but sensitivities/allergies/intolerances, whatever label we give them can get worse. The good news is that you can eliminate them!

      I know people have a really hard time trying to get their heads round this work with allergies but I only recommend it because I have seen it work and other people are telling me it is working for them. It’s easy to do but sometimes can need persistence.

      Take a look round my site at my Allergy Balancing System or The Allergy Kit and open your mind to the possibility that this could be your chance to eliminate your allergies once and for all.

      That last reaction sounded scary so you need to tread carefully there. I always recommend that if you have had a severe reaction to anything, when you are ready to introduce those substances, you do it under medical supervision.

      It could be that other things are weakening your system so that is why your reactions are getting worse. Can you think of anything? Have you moved house? Could there be environmental factors or emotional factors? The Allergy Kit  is great for clearing the main allergens to get your system back in balance, then you can start clearing anything else that you might be reacting to, if indeed you still are.

      I hope that helps and please let me know if you have any more questions.

      With love,
