I was wondering if any information could be given about peanut (and products of) allergy? We are afraid my grandson may have this. From what I am now reading it can be deadly! Astrologically ruled by????
Thank you for any help,

Thanks for the question.
First, all allergies are basically due to perturbation of the air element so the more air there is, the more likely that symptoms will be extreme. However, the way of looking for air is a little technical since it can involve aspects to Mercury and/or Uranus as well as planets in air signs, but the Moon and its aspects are always the most important.
Peanut allergies are a very common allergy, often undetected but sometimes serious enough to precipitate anaphylactic shock. I did a short web search and was very surprised that many of the latest round of concern is focused on IgE, an immunoglobin, rather than the mycotoxin (aflatoxin). Since so many people are allergic to peanuts, estimated at half the U.S. population, it makes more sense to me that we change our eating habits. Tahini is a far superior food to peanut butter and is readily available.
Peanuts are legumes, not nuts. They are more similar to soybeans than to nuts. All proteins tend to excite the air element and people who do not need this stimulation are better off eating less protein. Children who are growing fast actually probably would thrive on almond butter and sesame butter rather than peanut butter. I make my own tahini for children using astragalus, pumpkin seeds, and a little honey plus sesame, pistachio, or hazel nut oil. It's delicious, nutritious, and less likely to produce an allergic reaction. I'll post the recipe if there is interest.
This said, tolerance for allergens can usually be expanded by improving adrenal function, the earth element. However, this means enhancing the feeling of support and safety as well as eating more grounding foods.
I have a nice article on the adrenals on another of my sites:
