Allergies and Intolerances

Allergies are much more common than you think. In fact, almost one in every three people suffers from allergies – whether to pollen, cats, house dust, foods, drugs or chemicals. The charity Allergy UK claims that up to 45% of the population suffers from food hypersensitivity, so how can you tell if you’re allergic or intolerant to a food?

Typically there is a wide range of symptoms from fatigue, headaches, migraine and skin problems, to bloating, stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, IBS, joint pains, catarrh and runny nose.

The most common offenders are dairy products and grains, particularly wheat. However, many other foods cause reactions in some people including bacon and pork, oranges, eggs, coffee and sugar.
