Symptoms & Causes of Allergies
Food allergies are an immune system reaction that occurs after eating a certain food. A small amount of the allergy-causing food can cause an allergic reaction. A food allergy can cause severe symptoms or a life-threatening reaction. Food allergy symptoms usually develop within a few minutes to two hours after eating the triggering food.*
Common signs and symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting or nausea
- Tingling or itching in the mouth
- Hives, itching, or eczema
- Wheezing, nasal congestion, or trouble breathing
- Repetitive cough
- Tight, hoarse throat; trouble swallowing
- Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat or other parts of the body
- Weak pulse
- Pale or blue coloring of skin
- Dizziness, lightheadedness or feeling faint
Any food can cause an allergic reaction, but eight types of food account for about 90% of all reactions:* The most common include: Eggs, Milk, Peanuts, Tree nuts, Fish, Shellfish, Wheat, and Soy.*
Your Different Treatment Options
A food allergy’s impact on your diet is more prominent than any feature on it, and as such you may be deprived of valuable nutrients. We feature a variety of nutritional supplements that can be taken in addition to the foods and multivitamins you take at home.*
Tui na can help pinpoint where you feel discomfort the most in your body if your allergy produces mild symptoms such as stomachaches and diarrhea.* Tui na is used to relax the patient through massage therapy to promote blood flow to the affected area, typically in conjunction with acupuncture.
No matter what you are allergic to, it is important to take notice of what your diet is and if you are getting the best out of your body. We will work with you to figure out what areas might need improvement in your system and coach you to find the right nutrients in your body throughout your life.
