Food Sensitivity or Allergy?

Are you sick of suffering after eating a meal?

Are you confused about what to eat, when,  & how to cook and why you feel unwell after eating certain foods?

To take the confusion away and to give your body a well-deserved holiday from eating the same diet or foods that you have from birth having a sensitivity food test may be the answer you are looking for.

Sometimes it is just having a break from a certain food or food group that is causing inflammation and putting stress on your digestion.

Food Sensitivity (Intolerance)

Symptoms Delayed

  • Reactions are usually delayed and symptoms may take several days to appear. 
  • You can be intolerant to several different food groups at the same time. 
  • Sufferers can experience multiple symptoms, from a migraine to bloating, diarrhoea, lethargy and a general feeling of unwellness. 
  • Does not release histamine

Essentially food sensitivities are also known as food intolerances!  Unlike allergies, food intolerances do not involve an IgE acute immune response. The term used to describe the body’s abnormal reaction to certain foods that become reactive causing symptoms over time that undermine your health.

People may react differently with symptoms ranging from

  • Headaches – persistent or migraines
  • Lung reactions – asthma, cough, mucous congestion
  • Sinus congestion and Hay Fever
  • Skin conditions – eczema, itching, acne, dermatitis, skin rashes
  • Digestive complaints – ranging from bloating, flatulence, bad breath, IBS, diarrhoea, constipation, reflux and nausea
  • Behavioural conditions – ADD/HD, learning difficulties,
  • Musculoskeletal – Arthritis, muscle aches and pains. Sore joints, restless legs.
  • Emotional and nervous debility. Depression, Anxiety, Moody, unbalanced emotional behaviour.
  • Hormonal imbalances and many more ailments.

If you are realising that your food is a catalyst for a particular symptoms it is not easy when, unlike the immediate reactive symptoms of food allergy, food intolerance symptoms often appear hours or even days later. In fact, many food intolerance sufferers have commented after a diagnosis and only after having removed their problem foods from their diet that they realise they had been experiencing minor symptoms as a result of intolerance for their entire lives. The complex way food affects our everyday lives is an emerging area of understanding, and diagnosing the cause of symptoms, which seem to be ‘unexplained’ is often difficult. 

Although not life-threatening, food intolerance should never be underestimated, as its impact on sufferers can be significant, sometimes affecting their ability to live normal healthy lives. The incidence of food intolerance is extremely wide and it is estimated that 45% of the population could be affected. Many people with food intolerance experience more than one symptom. Symptoms can often be vague and the root cause of the problem, food, is not always correctly diagnosed. Sufferers often complain of seeming to be in a ‘fog’, feeling bloated and being tired all the time.

Food Allergy

Symptoms Immediate

  • Reactions usually occur quickly, with a maximum of 2 hours after exposure to the ‘reactive’ food. 
  • A food allergy involves the body’s immune system and is a reaction to a specific food. Releases histamine.
  • IgE Immune response.
  • Symptoms include difficulty breathing, rashes, swelling, runny nose and anaphylactic shock.
  • Food allergies can be potentially life-threatening.

There is a common confusion that exists with a Food Allergy and a food sensitivity (intolerance). The classic food allergy (such as shellfish or peanut allergy) is characterised by an immediate, often severe reaction of the immune system when exposed to that food (allergen). Food allergy sufferers react within a few minutes of eating or coming in to contact with the offending food, although they can be delayed by up to two hours.

The symptoms of an food allergy reaction range from –

  • Sneezing
  • Skin Rashes
  • Swelling
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Runny Nose
  • Fatigue
  • Breathing Difficulty
  • Anaphylactic Shock

Food allergy is quite rare with only about 2.5% of the population being diagnosed with the condition. The most common instances of food allergy are to peanuts, tree nuts (almonds and brazil’s), eggs, milk, fish and shellfish. There is about 2.5% of people that suffer from Allergic reactions to food.  Allergic reactions to food can vary considerably in their severity and some can be fatal. When exposed to the source of food allergy the body makes specific antibodies (IgE) to ‘fight off’ the allergens found in these foods and when the food is next eaten it triggers an immune system response which results in the release of histamine and other naturally occurring chemicals in the body.
