Allergies & Intolerances

It is not the allergen that causes the problem, but the body reacting negatively to it.


If you suffer from allergies and/or sensitivities, you are not alone. Allergies are the number one environmental disease today, with 25 percent of Australians suffering from allergies regularly, and up to 50 percent experiencing seasonal allergies like hay fever or food sensitivities.

There is a difference between a food allergy and intolerance. An allergy to a food gives rise to symptoms very quickly, generally within minutes of eating or even touching the food. The symptoms are often severe, and may even be life-threatening. Food intolerance is much more common than food allergy. The range of symptoms which can be induced by food intolerance is very similar to those caused by food allergy, so that on initial presentation, it can be difficult to differentiate between the two conditions. However, a food intolerance may also lead to more diffuse symptoms such as drowsiness, fatigue, irritability, headache and muscular aches and pains.
