Food Allergies & Sensitivities

Trying to lose some weight but the gym isn’t cutting it? Tired of feeling fatigued throughout the day even though you got a cozy 8 hours the night before? Are you experiencing heartburn regardless of whether or not you ate something spicy? The problem could be your diet. More specifically, the problem could be allergic reactions to the food you’re eating.

Allergic reactions to food occur when the immune system reacts to something introduced to the body during consumption. When exposed, the immune system makes antibodies to fight that substance. When you eat that food again in the future, an allergic reaction occurs, and may present itself as rashes, throat swelling, difficulty breathing, and even death.

Food sensitivity is similar to a food allergy though usually less severe. Some symptoms of food sensitivity can include bloating, nausea, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and a host of other negative effects. Even though these negative effects aren’t as cataclysmic as a severe food allergy, they can stack up to create a pretty unpleasant experience after consuming a meal.

Now, chances are you’ve heard about food allergy and food sensitivity tests. These tests are designed to help determine if you are suffering any current allergies to specific foods. Allergies come with differing levels of intensity, but they all cause a disruption of the body’s natural balance and homeostasis. It’s important to identify these allergies, no matter how small, in order to restore you to your natural healthy self. At Pacific Bay Health, we’re determined to get to the bottom of what’s bothering you. After administering a food allergy test, we’ll go over the results and discuss a dietary plan that best suits your specific needs. Eliminating these foods from your diet can greatly improve health and wellbeing.
