ALLERGY AND NUTRITION

What are Allergies?

Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance (allergen) that is typically harmless to most people. These reactions can range from mild to severe and can affect different parts of the body. We can use different approaches to help treat the symptoms and underlying cause of allergies.
