Allergies are an immune system malfunction that causes certain people to have a hypersensitive and sometimes violent reaction to various substances (known as allergens).
Type I hypersensitivity is characterised by excessive activation of mast cells mast by immunoglobulin E. This produces a systemic inflammatory response that may result in symptoms as benign as a runny nose, to those which are life-threatening and can cause anaphlactic shock or even death.
Intolerances to food, additives or environmental toxins are sometimes to blame when a person has otherwise unexplained symptoms. Various methods (including blood, hair or non-invasive Vega testing) are used to establish the cause.
The most common treatments recommended for intolerances are detoxifaction, food exclusion or a combination of both.
