How Do I Know if I Have Food Allergies?

There are two types of allergic reactions:

Type I toxic reactions are obvious. You know when you have one because your body suffers a notable and almost instant reaction such as throat closing, vomiting, swelling, etc. Don’t ignore these signs.

Type II reactions are not immediate, but delayed reactions, making them almost impossible to detect without sophisticated testing. Different foods break down at different speeds, causing different toxic reactions depending upon the food and your personal body chemistry. Therefore, without scientific testing, it is very difficult to judge which foods cause which reactions and when.

A Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) article revealed that more than 75% of the money spent on health care is spent on chronic conditions. Our research indicates that a great number of these conditions are the direct result of food allergies/sensitivities; easily treatable by simply removing the foods from your diet.

More than 2.9 billion prescriptions are written every year, generating more than $131.9 billion for the pharmaceutical companies. Many of these prescriptions mask and/or exacerbate conditions caused by food toxicity and rarely lead to a cure.
