Change Your Health - Find out what your body is reacting to through Food Intolerance and Allergy Testing
Allergies & Intolerances - the hidden cause of your health issues?
We have all heard the old saying, “You are what you eat.” For many people with chronic illness, this statement can mean a lot more. Food allergies and food intolerance's can create a host of health problems–from hives and anaphylaxis, to eczema, asthma, chronic ear infections, headaches, sinus infections, celiac disease, digestive issues, depression, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, and many others conditions.
Allergies, sensitivities, and intolerance's – especially to foods – are so widespread in our modern world that they probably deserve to be called epidemics.
We are often allergic to something that we love and crave for and this is a good indication that we have an allergy.
Only 2% of food reactions are the traditional type where you notice an immediate reaction. In 98% of cases the reaction can be delayed for up to three days therefore you may be unaware of the food that has caused the delayed reaction symptoms.
If your body is holding onto extra weight and you are unable to shift this it may be due to an allergic response as the body will hold onto water to enable it to dilute the allergic substance.
What is an Allergy, Sensitivity or Intolerance?
We can be allergic to any substance however and sometimes the most unlikely substances can be causing our difficulties.
The specific terms food allergy, hypersensitivity and intolerance are all commonly used interchangeably, with some evident confusion regarding the actual difference between them.
is when the body’s immune system mistakenly believes a harmless substance is harmful to the body. In allergic individuals their immune system identifies the substance as a’ threat’ and produces inappropriate response. It tries to protect the body by releasing histamines and IgE antibodies to attack the substance.
is a reaction that does not involve the immune system, but still may be quite unpleasant.
is the lack of a particular chemical or enzyme needed to digest or process a food. For example, if you are lactose intolerant, your body lacks the enzyme needed to break down and digest lactose, so if you consume foods with lactose you will likely feel quite ill as the lactose makes its way through your digestive system.
Many of your vague, undiagnosed, and persistent emotional and physical symptoms may therefore be from what you are eating, smelling, or touching.
