A small minority of adults - less than five percent - have true allergies to foods. Common food allergens include milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, soy and wheat. When true food allergies occur, the immune system reacts to a benign substance as if it were a harmful one, and produces antibodies against it, releasing histamines and other compounds in the process. This causes symptoms such as a tingling mouth, hives, swollen tongue and throat, drop in blood pressure, or even anaphylactic shock.
Food intolerance - which is much more common - may produce less serious but still uncomfortable symptoms (diarrhea, gas, headaches or flushing). Food intolerance may be due in part to a lack of enzymes needed to break down food.
If you feel you have a true food allergy, or have been bothered by symptoms of food intolerance, talk with your physician about your concerns; he or she can arrange tests to determine what, if anything, is causing allergies or intolerance.
Food intolerance can often be difficult to nail down with testing. Consider a two to three-week trial of an elimination diet, taking out the most common offenders above. If improved, gradually add back foods one at a time and gauge any reaction.
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to repair itself. To do so individuals need to take high quality nutritional supplements in the proper dosage. Nutritional supplements provide our bodies with the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients we are not getting from "manufactured" processed foods or from the nutrient depleted fruits and vegetables that are from distant lands. EveryBODY has nutritional needs unique to them, unlike any other Individual... specific nutritional depletions from lifestyle, medications, health issues, diet, geographical climate... on and on goes the list of considerations, based on what can seem to be an overwhelming number of factors. All of this, combined with an individuals desired outcomes and the enormous amount of scientific evidence that is changing daily as new discoveries are published, makes finding the right products to meet each of our unique nutritional needs a seemingly impossible task.
