The Allergy Line

The allergy line, also known in old fashioned terms as a ‘poison line’ is commonly found on the long, slim hand (water hand) with a multitude of lines. It is easily mistaken for the ‘intensity line’ although their meaning is very similar.

The intensity line would be more commonly found on an intuitive hand (fire hand), that is, a rectangular palm with short fingers. These people tend to crave excitement like bungee jumping, or on the other end of the scale, drugs. So you could say that this line, whether an allergy line, poison line or intensity line shows a significance for two types of problematic people, the hyperactive and the potential drug addict.



As an allergy line, it is mostly associated with nervous hands, that is hands with soft skin covered in many lines. Whenever this line is found on the palm, the owner will react strongly to chemicals, drugs, and medications like penicillin.

As a parent, if you see this line on your child’s hand, you should take care of their diet and watch carefully for any changes in their behaviour which might relate to the changes in the diet. NOTE: Often when the person is having an allergic reaction or vulnerable and sensitive to something, this line will have a red appearance.

Strangely enough, however, those with the allergy line often seem to have a subconscious awareness of their own sensitivity which leads them to leave behind drugs and chemicals completely. Naturopaths and healers are among many who possess this line.
