Allergy is a reaction by our immune system to exposure to certain substances, called allergens.
There is a variety of allergies, from specific food intolerances, pollen allergies and allergic conjunctivitis, to life-threatening anaphylaxis.
Around 30% of people experience some type of allergy some time in their lives. One in 7 people suffer from hay fever, and more than 1 in 6 children have skin conditions linked with allergies, such as eczema. Also, asthma is very common in children, affecting more than 15% of all children. Food allergies, especially to peanuts, eggs, shellfish, wheat, milk, seeds, fruits, etc., are, becoming more common, as well as insect allergies like bee, hornet, or wasp stings.
A very serious food intolerance is allergy to gluten, which is contained in wheat, causing coeliac disease with severe gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as dermatitis herpetiformis. Avoiding gluten will resolve both.
Many people are also allergic to medicines, like antibiotics (penicillin), which may lead to problems when treating patients.
Very useful tests exist to detect allergies, including blood tests, which can could test for hundreds of different allergens like foods, inhalants or insects.
We offer a specific eczema provoking profile, with a food profile, nut and seeds profile, a cereal profile, shellfish and fish profiles, etc.Test results are usually available within 48 hours.
My job is to help people recover from illnesses while employing not only traditional but also alternative methods of treatment. Over the years, such approach proved to be the most functional.
