There are some people that will believe the a food intolerance and a food allergy are two in the same. However, they are quite different as an intolerance is a food induced adverse reaction that had no connection to the immune system. A great example would be lactose intolerance where a person may lack the enzyme that is necessary for the digestion of milk. If you are unsure as to whether or not you are suffering from an allergy or an intolerance to certain foods, you can make an appointment to see Dr. Joe Dubroff at Holistic Solutions for food allergy testing in Irvine.
Symptoms that can come along with an allergic reaction to foods or ingredients in processed foods will often range in nature from mild to severe, with some patients having a reaction that is life threatening. If you are allergic to a particular food, the symptoms may also take quite some time to show up. As the allergens travel throughout the bloodstream, there could be a drop in blood pressure, hives may develop and there could be issues with breathing after they reach the lungs.
A lot of food allergies may actually be able to be treated with homeopathic methods after working on the immune system. Believe it or not, a number of food allergies are sort of a disturbance that is causing havok within the healing system of your body. The allergy is not so much a disease that has to be cured, but more of a sign that there is an underlying imbalance that should be addressed.
