Food Allergies and Intolerances

Food allergies and food intolerances can be confusing. Especially knowing what you can and can't eat.

A food allergy is caused by the bodies immune system responding to a substance in the food. It is a repeatable reaction to a specific food, and can sometimes cause serious illness and even death.

A food intolerance on the other hand, is a reaction to a build up of chemicals found naturally in food. This reaction can be seen in the form of:

  • hives (or rashes) and/or swellings
  • headaches and migraine
  • stomach and/or bowel upsets
  • sinus and/or breathing problems.

Our experience with food allergies and diagnosing food intolerances can help you understand your condition and improve your helath.
