A fixed allergy is an altered and obvious reaction to food, inhalent or contact allergy ie when you have eaten strawberries which induces hives or a rash, bee stings and shellfish allergy which generally induce strong and immediate reactions that can be potentially life threatening.

Hidden Allergies

If the allergy is not eliminated the fixed allergy can become a "masked" or  a hidden allergy.  Hidden allergies can develop slowly over time to foods or liquids that we regularily consume which can manifest as a variety of symptoms which often go without realization and therefore the root of the problem is not addressed.

Sometimes a food allergy is related to a pollen or mould allergy which also have allergy symptoms when exposed to certain food groups, these can be hidden and difficult to distinguish, an example of this is if you have a ragweed allergy then in hayfever season you should avoid certain foods such as milk, melons and bananas, this is called cross-reactivity.

Can you become allergic to your favourite foods?

Yes you can, this is a cumulative type allergy whereby you eat common foods frequently which can result in a hidden allergy/addiction.  The body develops antibodies against foods that are frequently eaten.  Many chronic illnesses are triggered by cumulative and delayed food allergies.

if you are constantly craving certain foods which trigger symptoms.  When you stop eating these foods you can go into a withdrawal phase similar to addiction which can intitially make us feel irritable and our symptoms may get worse.

What about Gluten & what is the difference between Gluten Intolerance & Coeliac Disease?

How wheat and gluten can affect our weight, energy and overall health

Jason Shon Bennett Health Mentor  talks about the differences between Gluten intolerance/sensitivity & Coeliac Disease.  Gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity is like a slow poisoning and often the cause is we are just consuming too many gluten products in our diet. This process happens over time and we start to notice bloating, cramping, fatigue, headaches, skin problems and dark circles under the eyes. Coeliac Disease however is an autoimmune disease, an allergic reaction to the gluten which is an intestinal irritant resulting in our own body system turning on itself because it sees gluten as a foreign invader and the body fights it causing damage the gut. The good news is coeliac disease can be completely cured if you remove gluten permanently from the diet for the rest of your life. Find out more information click on this video link 

How do we find out if we have hidden allergies/food intolerances?

DON'T STAB AROUND IN THE DARK - get a hair tissue analysis test, this is going to give you the information you need.  You may think that pollen is the culprit and actually mould might be.  Symptoms may be seasonal but also chronic and happening all year around so you may have multiple allergens affecting you.  Testing will take out the guess work and confusion and gives clarity and accurate information.

After ascertaining the food allergies/intolerances through hair analysis testing we then eliminate these identified intolerance/allergens from the diet and environment and heal the gut with combination of minerals, vitamins, specific strain pre-probiotics and slowly reintroduce back into the diet.  I can help to support you on this journey, it does take commitment to get the desired results.  As a part of this treatment protocol I will use iridology to understand your constitution and the get a good snapshot of your gastrointestinal health.
