What Causes Chronic Hives?

Chronic Urticaria is a condition that the medical community is still figuring out. There are many causes, such as [1]:

● External forces such as soaps, sun, pressure, scratching, and heat.
● Stress.
● Food sensitivities and allergies.
● Exercise.
● Infections
● Medications.
● Underlying health conditions (such as thyroid disease) . [2]

5 Foods The Help Chronic Urticaria

Turmeric root and powder to help chronic hives.

The foods that help chronic hives are the following:

Turmeric

Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory spice that can be found in your neighborhood grocery store. You can add turmeric to dishes that have a fat source (like coconut oil) and a pinch of black pepper to help absorption of this power food. It’s nature’s anti-inflammatory.

Parsley

Parsley isn’t just a pretty garnish that you ignore. Sure it looks pretty on top of your main dish but did you know that it’s a cleansing herb? Yup! Parsley is so powerful, it inhibits production of histamines (which helps with the development of hives).

Asparagus

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. In the spring and summer, my family enjoys this hearty vegetable every Friday night as a side to our steak dinners. Asparagus is high in Quercetin which stabilizes membranes in the cell that release histamine [3]. 

Coconut Oil

Natural makeup remover, heat sensitive (perfect for sauteeing), diaper barrier cream, and a healing food, what doesn’t coconut oil do? Coconut oil is not only a low histamine food but it’s also antimicrobial and antifungal!

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are awesome. From stuffed sweet potatoes, sweet potato apple scramble, or sweet potato noodles these low histamine “power carbs” can do so much to boost your meal, nutritionally. In addition to bein low histamine, they’re also a source of Vitamin C, an antioxidant helpful for hives [4].

There are so many foods that will help you kickstart healing hives. You want to find foods that are low in histamine and have anti-inflammatory properties. Some other foods to check out are apples, broccoli, garlic, and fresh ground flax seed (thanks to the Omega 3s). Powerful, everyday foods, that you can find at your local supermarket.

Health doesn’t have to be complicated!

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 chicken breasts cubed
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 large sweet potato spiralized or shredded
  • 2 tbsps chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 lime for garnish wedged

For the Turmeric Sauce

Instructions

  • In a large skillet or wok heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat
  • Add the chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked, but not browned.
  • Add the peppers, broccoli, and sweet potato noodles and stir for 2-3 minutes. You still want the veggies to have a little crunch.
  • While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. Tip: I added a little more than half a can of the coconut liquid from the milk (roughly an extra tablespoon to give it a little more liquid).
  • Toss the mix with your spoon or tongs for 2-3 minutes. Enough for the sauce to heat up and coat the noodles
  • Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  • Top with parsley and sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges.
