Do you have reactions to foods that you cannot understand? Food allergies and also food sensitivities are becoming more and more common globally. There is growing recognition that food allergies place a tremendous burden on public health and are known as the “second wave” of the allergy epidemic, aside from asthma. Statistics and also research from practitioners tell us that close to 60 percent of the world population may have at least one food allergy. Global food allergens are quite common: milk, wheat, eggs and corn. In 2011, one study in Pediatrics found that 30 percent of all children have multiple food allergies, not just one!
What is going on? Fortunately ACBM has successfully managed hundreds and hundreds of food allergen cases. Just by reading this you are already on the road to recovery. Take the guesswork out of your allergy concerns by scheduling a food sensitivity test. It is easy, painless and yields the maximum amount of information about the food allergies you may suspect, and even those you never knew you had.
Immune reactions can result from the different types of food allergies or food sensitivities you may possess. The most common foods causing allergic reactions are peanuts, soy, wheat, shellfish, fish, milk, eggs and tree nuts. Once identified, we recommend eliminating those problematic foods from your diet.
In addition food sensitivities may be caused by many factors such as:
- Artificial Preservatives
- Environmental pollutants
Unidentified food sensitivities snowball, becoming chronic health conditions: including irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, autism, ADD/ADHD, eczema, chronic ear infections, gut malabsorption, insomnia and many others. Our team of experts will quickly identify the most optimal detoxification routine for you. You will be surprised at how fundamentally important guided detoxification is to alleviating both food sensitivities and allergies.
Many people are familiar with the term ‘food allergy’. The word “allergy” is confusing because many people use it generically to describe both true allergic reactions and nonallergic adverse reactions, also called sensitivities or intolerances.
Food allergies are divided into two major categories: immediate and delayed.
When immediate food reaction occurs, sufferers experience symptoms within hours of having ingested the food. Symptom onset is rapid and may include tingling of extremities, wheezing, coughing, tightening of the throat, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Sometimes in cases where nuts, shellfish, fish, and peanuts have been eaten, anaphylaxis can occur.
