Medical evidence suggests that food allergies happen when the protein components in any given food are not completely digested. When these elements are absorbed by your body, your immune system does not recognize them as nutritional and beneficial. As a result, your body responds defensively by producing antibodies and starting a domino reaction which can affect several tissues and organs.
The Institute of Health & Wellness provides testing and treatment of food allergies in Delray Beach. According to our experience, the most common food allergy signs and symptoms include:
• Tingling or itching in the mouth.
• Hives, itching or eczema.
• Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat or other parts of the body.
• Wheezing, nasal congestion or trouble breathing.
• Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting.
• Dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting.
If you’re suffering from these symptoms and live in the Delray Beach area, we can determine which foods you are sensitive to with a comprehensive blood analysis.
