Allergies are considered one of the fastest-growing chronic diseases in Australia.

Symptoms can range from allergic rhinitis, hay fever and digestive disorders, to eczema and asthma, and even life-threatening anaphylaxis*. Causes may vary from environmental, food-induced or careless use of preservatives and antibiotics.* While 1 in 3 people in industrialised countries report they have a reaction to food, only 5% experience a classic IgE-mediated anaphylactic response*. So this tells us that other biological mechanisms are at play. What is this mechanism? It is biological intolerance. Yep, that’s right. It’s your immune system making a mistake and believing that some foods have become its enemy and have become victims of your own immune system’s “friendly fire”. How do we restore it to full recognition so that this doesn’t happen? Simply by calling us  for a full explanation and suggested remedial programme. So, how does all this work?

It’s all a big mistake

Firstly, let’s clear up the “immune mistake” business. You see … your immune system’s “B” cells are there to protect you. They produce various types of antibodies, also called immunoglobulins (Ig for short, hence “IgE”, for example) to attack and neutralise invading bugs, parasites, candida. They produce specific antibodies for contact with different particles, like food bugs etc. And remember them for next time! And the results of the mistakes can be result in inflammation and sometimes itch, and can occur in tissues that extend everywhere from the skin to the lungs to the nose to the gut… and elsewhere. Well, “how is this so”? The simple answer is that “B” cells have learnt to adapt and specialise from the original stem cells stage.  So, they guard specific tissue – like skin, nose cells, lungs etc. That means to you that the reaction will finish up as eczema, rhinitis, asthma etc.

But why do these immune cells react to our own food?

Simply because your gut has failed to digest the food completely, before it is absorbed into your bloodstream.

But why the inflammation? How does that happen? And how can we prevent this from happening?

Well, it happens that once recognition has occurred, cells explode out their contents and release histamine that causes swelling and redness.
