Food Allergies, Sensitivities or Intolerances

Are you suffering from any of allergies or hypersensitivities to certain kind of foods, allergens, chemicals or toxins?
The body respond to any allergen(which trigger allergy response) by producing antibodies via five major classes of Immunoglobulin (Ig)- IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM. The allergic reaction occurs either immediately via IgE (like asthma, rhinitis, itching, sneezing etc) or there is delayed response starting after few hours of exposure or lasting to 21 days at the most. Delayed food allergies are often ignored by physicians due unavailability of few tests in India like IgG food antibodies. The only test available in India is IgE food antibodies which can only find the immediate allergic reaction to any food, if any. Genova diagnostic do provide Allergix IgG4 antibodies test for delayed food allergies for 90 food items.
IgG antibodies have to shown to increase the permeability of small intestine which is one of the reason for chronic allergic disease such as urticaria or repeated skin infections.
Food allergies can cause number of conditions like asthma, eczema, urticaria, migraines, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), acne, rashes, joint pains, low back pain, ulcers, gastritis, sinusitis and even under eye dark circles.
So treating the root cause (here GI tract) can help you get rid of any symptoms permanently and that best can be achieved through testing, elimination diet and repairing the intestinal tract.
Nutrients like zinc carnonise, probiotics, glutamine and digestive enzymes are helpful in repairing intestinal tract and restoring optimal function.
