What are Allergies?

Allergic people have excessive responses to something in their environment

  • Certain foods, pollens, animal dander, molds, yeasts, and bacteria, as well as many chemicals, are the most commonly recognized allergens
  • Allergens stimulate our immune system into action, and give rise to allergic (or hypersensitivity) reactions

The Relationship between Food Allergy and Health
  • Many common symptoms and the allergies that caused them may go unrecognized for years
  • Allergy, increased stress, recurrent infections or declining health may add to the burden of chronic allergies. Arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune disease, eczema, and migraines can develop into chronic conditions
  • Discover and remove the offending allergens from the diet helps lessen the serious conditions linked with food allergies

Who has allergies?

Conservative estimates imply that as many as 25 percent of the population have significant allergies to some types of foods, chemicals, or inhalants. The true incidence of allergy and intolerance may be considerably higher if we include the less dramatic symptoms of occasional anxiety, joint aches, generalized fatigue, and water retention as well.

Immediate Onset Reactions Delayed Onset Reactions
mediated via IgE
antibodies typically
mediated via IgG
antibodies typically

This type of allergic reaction, mediated via IgE antibodies typically occurs immediately after contact with an allergen. High levels of IgE antibodies reacting to specific allergens can cause serious health problems.

This type of allergy is easily recognized because it involves quick and dramatic symptoms.

The delayed type of reaction is much less obvious and thus more difficult to discover; the reaction may occur up to several hours or days after contact with the allergen.

This type of allergy is often considered "hidden allergies". Chronic fatigue, arthritis, hives, eczema, headaches, water retention, irritable bowel, and many other chronic symptoms are often the legacy of unrealized and untreated IgG mediated allergic reactions.
