Naturopathic Care: The Natural Approach to Overcoming Food Allergies
Eating is one of life's great pleasures. Unfortunately, allergies are also one of life's great annoyances -- and eating and allergies can go together. If you suffer from food allergies, you may have grown sick of the short-term, limited relief you get from antihistamines and other quick fixes. Fortunately, you can enjoy more satisfying results the natural way, thanks to holistic health care at Whole Body Natural Wellness Center.
Understanding Food Allergies
Like other kinds of allergies, food allergies stem from an abnormal or incorrect immune system response to a trigger that it should consider harmless. If it perceives a specific food or food ingredient as a potential disease threat, it unleashes a flood of histamines and cortisone. The all-too-familiar results may include symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, itching, hives, wheezing, coughing, and digestive problems. The most acute food allergies can produce a dangerous condition known as anaphylactic shock. (By contrast, food intolerances mostly create headaches, fatigue, insomnia, and digestive problems which may grow worse when you're tired or under stress.)
What to Expect From Naturopathic Care
Dr. Chanté will evaluate your allergy symptoms, medical history, and other key factors before recommending a holistic health plan. You may also undergo assessment of
your microbiome to pinpoint the specific substances that give you trouble.
Dr. Chanté may also recommend other non-pharmaceutical strategies for easing your symptoms, such as specific diets that eliminate offending foods.
