Allergies are a powerful demonstration of your body’s immune function, although it’s difficult to appreciate that fact when you’re struggling with symptoms. Allergies develop when your immune system mistakenly launches an attack against a substance that is not typically dangerous to humans.
The exact cause of allergies is unknown, but researchers find that people who have close family members with allergies have a higher risk level. There also seems to be a clear link between asthma and allergies.
Some people only have an allergic reaction to one specific substance. For others, allergies make it difficult to enjoy daily routines because so many different substances provoke allergic reactions.
Understanding what to look for can help you know when to seek professional care for yourself or a loved one. Some of the more common symptoms of allergies include:
The most extreme symptom of allergies is called anaphylaxis and includes lightheadedness, loss of consciousness, nausea and vomiting, and shortness of breath. Without immediate treatment, anaphylaxis can be deadly.
The team at Tulsi Wellness Club offers state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to help determine if you are suffering from allergies. The process begins with a discussion of your symptoms and when they develop.
Some of the substances that trigger allergic reactions include:
Advanced lab testing is a great way to look for food allergies and food sensitivities. Microbiome, heavy metals, and micronutrient testing are also powerful tools that can reveal imbalances in your gut health that could be causing some of your symptoms.
Skin testing is another option for identifying which substances might be triggering your allergic reactions. The process involves creating small scratches on the surface of your skin and placing a diluted version of specific allergens on that area. If your skin becomes red or reacts in other ways, you may be allergic to that substance.
The results of your allergy testing guide your customized treatment path. When you’re ready to get started, call the office to book a visit or schedule online any time of day or night.
