Dealing with Food Allergies & Food Intolerances
A food allergy is an excessive immune system reaction to foods or drink – which is why people choose to have a food allergy test. It can be ingredients within foods or combination of foods that cause the allergic condition. There are different types of antibody reaction – quick, immediate reactions (IgE antibody reactions) such as bee stings, nut allergies, dairy allergies to food allergies that can take hours, or even days to show symptoms. Then there are foods that can build in the system and take hours, sometimes days to manifest as allergies (IgG antibody reactions) – sometimes these immune reactions are known as Food Intolerances. Combinations of ingredients causing allergies make it harder for people to realise what underlying allergens are causing health issues. Food Intolerance may also occur if you have a particular digestive factor missing such as lactase for those who are truly lactose intolerant to dairy.
Symptoms can be:
- Respiratory problems: Asthma, Hay Fever, Perennial Rhinitis, sneezing, continuous tickly cough, red itchy burning eyes, difficulty breathing
- Digestive disorders: Reflux, Heartburn, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, wind
- Skin problems: Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Urticaria (Hives), rashes
