Food Allergies Become More Common

“Childhood food allergies 

and visits to the doctor for 

food allergies are on the rise. Find out how you can 

eliminate them here.”

-Dr. Patrick

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that food allergies have increased by 18% among children in the decade from 1997 to 2007. Visits to doctors, emergency rooms and outpatient clinics have tripled from 2003 to 2006. 

There is also evidence that many people are also reacting to, “ new health fad foods" such as quinoa, and chia seeds. Experts theorize that some people are developing allergies to these new healthy foods, because their bodies may never have been exposed to them before and their bodies seeing them as allergens. 

Traditional medicine has nothing to offer food allergy sufferers except avoidance which can be especially difficult if you suffer from wheat, dairy or gluten allergies. 

Despite the bad news, there is good news. If you have not been diagnosed with true food  allergy but experience allergy-like symptoms, you may be sensitive or intolerant instead. Find out how we can help you eat foods again without reacting.
