Introducing the “Nightshades”

Many don’t know what “nightshades” entail when a person says he or she suffers from a nightshade food allergy. Nightshades refer to the following (and usually express themselves in form of acne, flush, or rash) …

  • peppers of all types (bell, jalepeno, chili, cayenne, etc)
  • potatoes
  • tomatoes
  • aubergine (eggplant)
  • gogi berry
  • ground cherry

Some common complaints or symptoms of a nightshade allergy is related to digestion (inability to fully break down the proteins)

  • abdominal cramps or bloat
  • constipation or diarrhea alternating
  • sleepiness
  • general flu like feeling
  • headaches
  • stiff joints or arthritis like pain
  • mood swings, the “blues” for no reason

How do we improve digestion and make it go away? 

  1. Eliminate foods that body is intolerant to and it will heal itself quickly
  2. Create a food diary of the food you eliminate from diet (healing diet)
  3. Cook skins of vegetable (don’t eat raw)
  4. Don’t eat skins of potatoes
  5. Avoid all concentrated versions (concentrated chili sauce, concentrated tomato)
