Food allergies

  • Food allergies occur when a low immune system mistakenly responds to a food item as if it’s harmful.  In its attempt to protect, it creates specific IgE antibodies to that food.  The next time the person eats that food, the immune system releases massive amounts of chemicals and histamines.  These chemicals trigger a cascade of allergic reactions

  • Medline has a database of numerous studies linking food allergies with reactions. (Keywords: ‘food allergy asthma’ or ‘food allergy dermatitis’)

  • Another cause of food allergies can be a Candida overgrowth.  Candida can eat microscopic holes in the intestinal wall.  Foods ‘leak’ into the bloodstream and cause the body to produce antibodies against them.  Hence, the candida overgrowth must be contained and the intestinal wall must be repaired to stop this cycle and return the body to health.  How to stop candida overgrowth?

  • There are 2 types of responses to allergens, immediate reaction – IgE or delayed reaction IgG.
