Food Intolerance

Abnormal reaction to certain foods that can manifest in a number of different ways.  The 2 types of common food allergies are:

Type I Allergy (IgE-mediated):  Presents with classical allergy symptoms of rashes, sneezing and shock.  The allergic foods are usually obvious and must be avoided for life.  For example peanut allergies.

Type III Allergy (IgG-mediated): Delayed on-set and cause chronic inflammation, which can make it difficult to identify the allergic foods. Symptoms may include gas, bloating, irritable bowels, itching and eczema.  Even anxiety, depression, headache/migraines, fatigue, high blood pressure, joint pain, arthritis, muscle aches and weight problems can be due to food allergies.  Luckily, it is possible to recover from Type III Allergy.

Food Allergy Symptoms:

  • Gas, bloating, irritable bowels, constipation

  • Anxiety, depression
  • Headache, migraines
  • Fatigue
  • High blood pressure
  • Joint pain, arthritis, muscle aches
