in & around Allergies
An allergy is a hypersensitivity disorder of the immune system. Allergic reactions occur when a person's immune system reacts to normally harmless substances in the environment. A substance that causes a reaction is called an allergen. These reactions are acquired, predictable, and rapid. Allergy is one of four forms of hypersensitivity and is formally called type 1 (or immediate) hypersensitivity. Allergic reactions are distinctive because of excessive activation of certain white blood cells called mast cells and basophils by a type of antibody called Immunoglobulin E (IgE). This reaction results in an inflammatory response which can range from uncomfortable to dangerous.
One of the most common food allergies is a sensitivity to peanuts. Peanut allergies may be extremely severe, but can sometimes be outgrown by children school-age.Tree nuts, including pecans, pistachios, pine nuts, and walnuts, are another common allergen. Sufferers may be sensitive to one, or many, tree nuts.Also seeds, including sesame seeds and poppy seeds, contain oils where protein is present, which may elicit an allergic reaction. Egg allergies affect one to two percent of children but are outgrown by about two-thirds of children by the age of 5.The sensitivity is usually to proteins in the white rather than the yolk. Milk, from cows, goats, or sheep, is another common allergy-causing food, and many sufferers are also unable to tolerate dairy products such as cheese. Lactose intolerance, a common reaction to milk, is not in fact a form of allergy. A small portion of children with a milk allergy, roughly ten percent, will have a reaction to beef. Beef contains a small amount of protein that is present in cow's milk. Other foods containing allergenic proteins include soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, fruits, vegetables, spices, synthetic and natural colors, chicken, and chemical additives.

The Brunel Health Food Intolerance Testing System is very simple
First you provide a few drops of blood, which I send to the Brunel Health laboratory. There it is analysed for reactions to 134 food types.
The report comes back, identifying your personal trigger foods, which we can remove from your diet, replacing them with foods to create a varied, healthy diet that is just right for you.
