Allergy Testing
What are Environmental & Food Allergies?

An allergy is a reaction by the immune system triggering the body’s defenses against a substance that is usually harmless. The body’s natural reaction against foreign substances, such as pathogens that cause infection, is an immune response that protects the body from, and attacks, the foreign substance. An allergic reaction is a misguided immune response to non-pathogens that does not cause a reaction in most people. Environmental and food allergies differ not only by source, but exposure. Environmental allergies are triggered by coming into contact with the foreign substance through inhalation or skin contact during day-to-day activities. Food allergies are an immune response after ingestion. Symptoms of either source can range from sneezing, itching, congestion, skin rash, gastrointestinal distress and, in extreme cases, anaphylaxis.
