    Food Allergies

    A food allergy is an exaggerated immune response triggered by certain foods. Specific proteins in the food cause your body to release an IgE antibody, as well as allergic mediators like histamine. These chemicals can cause a vast and varied array of symptoms, from skin rashes and stomach cramps to heart palpitations and difficulty breathing. Although any food could potentially provoke an immune response in an allergic person, there are a few foods, such as peanuts, shellfish, dairy, and eggs that are responsible for the majority of food allergies. Naturopathic doctors at Living Wellness can order blood IgE panels such as nut mix, seafood mix, and children’s food mix, as well as individual suspected allergens to figure out what might be causing your symptoms.

    We must pay greater attention to keeping our bodies and minds healthy and able to heal. Yet we are making it difficult for our defences to work. We allow things to be sold that should not be called food. Many have no nutritive value and lead to obesity, salt imbalance, and allergies.

    Please manifest my allergies into human form so I can punch them in the face.
