Are you making yourself sick, from the foods that you eat?

 

 

The immune system is a double-edged sword that should react appropriately to invaders such as viruses and bacteria. Unfortunately for some, exposure to common foods, chemicals, and molds may trigger chronic activation of the immune system which may eventually lead to the following conditions.

  • Digestive Disorders (gas, bloating, IBS, IBD)

  • Migraines

  • Obesity or Difficulty Losing Weight

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Aching Joints/Arthritis

  • Cardiovascular diseases

  • Skin Disorders

  • Asthma, Allergies or other respiratory ailments 

 

 

 

Allergies typically stem from a hyperactive immune system. Our immune system is mistakenly identifying foods and environmental proteins as foreign invaders such as bacteria, fungus and viruses.

 

Allergy Symptoms differ between people


When the body is exposed to a substance it considers as “foreign”, the immune system produces antibodies to eliminate those substances. Allergies have a cumulative effect. You may be sitting in the living room unaffected by the dust, and the cat can walk in and you start sneezing. Go outside with the cat and your symptoms could cease.


Allergy problems do not necessarily stop or start only with a sneeze or stuffy nose. Many disorders caused by inflammation – such as arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and eczema – can be triggered by an allergic response to certain foods, pollens and moulds.


Increased total antigenic load related to food and environmental sensitivities has been associated with a wide range of medical conditions affecting virtually every part of the body. Even mood and behavior, including hyperactivity disorders in children, are profoundly influenced by food sensitivities. Symptoms can range from mildly uncomfortable to severe and may include:

  • Headaches

  • Asthma

  • Recurring upper respiratory infections

  • Skin conditions such as acne, eczema or psoriasis

  • Joint pain

  • Digestive issues, especially IBS

 

Testing for Allergies

In the clinic we can perform certain diagnostics to check for allergies but to be 100% certain we also rely on outside lab tests. We have access to some specific allergy and sensitivity tests from the worlds leading laboratories. 

 

Treatment

Treatment of allergies can alleviate symptoms in more than 80% of patients.

 

Being consistent with the Miramas Health approach we work on many layers simultaneously. Firstly, it is important to identify the specific allergin, but also to understand the intestinal disturbances and functioning, plus to consider the immune system as a whole including the reasons why the allergy or sensitivity started in the first place.


Getting a food allergy test is a first step towards improving your health. Once you receive your results, your practitioner will help you formulate a plan to eliminate the problem foods from your diet. Most people see improvement of symptoms within a few weeks of eliminating the reactive foods. It is important to know that removing food allergens from the diet can sometimes result in withdrawal symptoms like headaches, tiredness, irritability and hunger.
