Solutions for Food Allergies in Dallas

Gabrielle Grandell assists clients like you in identifying various allergies, food sensitivities, and food intolerances. It is essential to differentiate between these three types of reactions, as they stem from different underlying causes.

Among these reactions, food allergies are the most severe but least common. Research suggests that only 8 percent of children under the age of five and a mere 4 percent of adults have true food allergies. Although food allergies may not be as prevalent as one might think, those affected often experience significant and potentially life-threatening symptoms.

Defining Food Allergies

cutting peppersYour body’s well-being can be greatly impacted by the foods you consume. As an experienced practitioner, Gabrielle explains that in the case of a food allergy, your body’s immune system identifies a specific protein within the food as a foreign invader.

To combat this perceived threat, your immune system produces an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). When this antibody mistakenly recognizes a protein as dangerous, it triggers the release of histamine, which can result in swelling, itchiness, mucus production, and other allergic reactions.

In severe cases, known as anaphylaxis, the IgE antibody releases an abundant amount of histamine into the bloodstream. This excessive release can affect your ability to breathe properly and may lead to lightheadedness or even loss of consciousness. While anaphylaxis is a life-threatening situation, it’s important to note that most food allergies are not as intense.
