Food Allergies/Intolerances

FourSquare_allergyWhat is triggering your allergic reactions? When an aggravating food is consumed, a reaction occurs between the allergen and the antibody that triggers the release of chemicals that leads to inflammation in body tissues. Typical health problems associated to this can include gastrointestinal symptoms (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gas), mood disorders (hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, inability to concentrate), headaches and high blood pressure, runny noses/puffiness, asthma/respiratory infections, eczema and other skin conditions.

When an allergic reaction occurs, the immune system reacts by releasing antibodies when certain foods are ingested or particles inhaled. Some reactions may occur several hours or days after and can be caused by multiple foods that are unknown to the individual. There are several ways to test for food allergies.
