Food Allergies


The 75 trillion cells that make up your body are made bythe food you eat. Are you eating food to build your body or are you causing your body to deteriorate? “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food,” as Hippocrates, the father of medicine once said. The right food is the right medicine and the wrong food can be your worst enemy.Fifty percent of healthy people are actually allergic to some type of food. Unknown to many, there is such as a thing as IGG foods or hidden food allergens that can sabotage your body without you even knowing it. You can eat food today and not feel good up to three days later. Take the mystery out of whether you’re eating the right food for your body. A simple finger stick test can determine if you’re allergic to 96 foods. Allergies may include asthma, runny nose and hives. Immediate allergic reactions are called IGE reactions while IGG reactions are more gradual. Undergoing IGG testing and becoming aware of which foods are harmful to your body can help you reach a higher level of wellness. IGG testing can make you aware of gradual food allergies that may cause conditions such as asthma, runny nose, mucus, phlegm and year-round congestion.

IGG foods have effects that can last up to 72 hours. Their effects are gradual and subtle. How do you know you have allergies? Food allergens can cause skin problems, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive problems, joint problems, sinusitis, and even a hyperactive bladder. Food allergens can even contribute to ADD/ADHD. You may not need to be medicated to treat ADHD; you may just need to take zinc or essential fatty acids to treat this disorder. Ear infections in children may also be caused by food allergens. Food allergens can also cause brain fog. If you eat the wrong food, you may reduce your clarity and “fog up” your brain. Allergies have also been known to contribute to inflammation in the body. Conditions that end with the suffix “itis” are examples (e.g. dermatitis, sinusitis, rhinitis, conjunctivitis).

The bottom line is that avoiding certain foods that harm your body can empower you. Foods such as dairy, fish, crab, lobster, eggs, yeast, oats, barley, grains, gluten coffee, are potential allergens that can be determined by a finger stick test. Take charge of your health and get a food allergy test. Eating with intention and with an awareness of food allergies can be your key to good health.You are what you eat from your head to your feet.
