My Dear Readers,
Sulfites are considered as a preservative and antioxidants, as well as an additive. They are used to keep dried fruits like apricots from turning brown, and increasing the shelf life, preserve color and inhibit microbial growth of a variety of other foods. These additives have been tested and yet the scientists claim they have not yet been scientifically proven to cause severe or even deadly reactions in some people. Or so they say!
When sulfites are consumed your liver transforms these to sulfates. However, for people with sulfite intolerance or sensitivity, this transformation doesn’t take place properly, or will happen very slowly. When the sulfites arrives in the liver, it blocks the function of glutathione located there. Glutathione aids processes, such as the breakdown of alcohol by the liver. But now it means you will suffer more from the effects of the toxic side effects.
What is happening with these toxins within the body is due to the overload of histamines put out by the body’s immune system. They are on full alert to rid of the toxins that were ingested and considered as poisons. With this allergic reaction the immune systems becomes hypersensitive and the mast cells release histamines in inordinate amounts. Which then causes the visible symptoms of a localized reaction, including runny nose, watery eyes, constriction of the bronchi and tissue swellings. Histamines also contributes to anaphylaxis, a severe, immediate and often fatal response to exposure to a previously encountered antigen. The activity can be blocked by various chemical drugs, like antihistamines. It’s best to avoid these preservatives and additives or you may take a poison to counteract another poison.
The brain is the ultimate security system , it scans the entire body through its army of microbes, cells, and organs. But the number one big flaw, it tries to save the human organism from near death, it has limited energy. This is evident when the body is suffering from histamine intolerance. To combat the presence of histamine, the brain focuses all of its energy and resources on the task at hand, this leaves the other parts of the body ‘stranded’, due to the energy spent you might feel like you are unable to regain consciousness. Histamine intolerance can led to a sudden feeling of exhaustion. This problem roots in the brain’s expenditure of energy to deal with over abundant histamines within the blood. This excess can wreak havoc in the body, starting with the brain, the histamine has the ability to inhibit every neurotransmitter. Any unbalance in the chemical makeup of your brain is bound to cause unwanted effects such as brain fog, fatigue, and perhaps anxiety. There are many more reactions that may take place because that I have not written here for lack of space. But the point is the human body does not take well to these additives, please READ LABELS and avoid them Science is trying to determine what we will eat, and most people think if it’s in the grocery stores it must be safe to eat…IT IS NOT SAFE! Don’t take the chance with your own health or with your families health.
