FOOD ALLERGY

vs FOOD SENSITIVITY

Learn Which Foods You Don’t Tolerate Well

Food Allergy reactions can vary unpredictably from mild to sever. Mild food allergy reactions may involve only a few hives or abdominal pain, some food allergy reactions my cause sever anaphylaxis and loss of consciousness. The food to which you are allergic will almost always provoke an immune reaction when ingested.

Food Sensitivity, as opposed to food allergy, happens gradually and isn’t life threatening. Symptoms of a delayed food reaction can take up to 72-hours to appear.

Symptoms of Food Allergy

  • Mouth itch
  • Hives
  • Swelling of face and/or lips
  • Wheezing, etc.

Symptoms of Food Sensitivity

  • Headache
  • Bloating
  • Irritable bowel
  • Skin rash
  • Stomachache, etc.

Food sensitivities may be caused by many factors such as stress, infections, overeating, artificial preservatives, additives, molds, pesticides, antibiotics, and environmental pollutants. Unidentified food sensitivities can then contribute to many chronic health conditions including:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Autism
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Eczema
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Gut Malabsorption
  • Insomnia
  • …and many others.
