Are you Allergic to...?

Many people suffer from distressing physical or mental symptoms for which they have not been able to obtain relief. When they go to a doctor, they may be told that their problems are all in their imagination. Or, they may be diagnosed as having a certain disease, but the prescribed treatment does nothing to help them

People all over the world suffer from chronic pain symptoms such as headache, fatigue, bloating, joint pain, nasal irritation, constipation or diarrhea, nausea, eye irritation, brain fog, anxiety or depression, wheezing and itchy skin. Many people don't know the cause of these ailments. Many turn to pharmaceutical drugs to reduce the pain and symptoms

Do you get recurring problems like joint and muscle pains, restless legs, fatigue, headaches, tics, rashes, depression, anxiety, tinnitus . Do you feel tired after a full night's sleep Do you feel as if you've never totally been yourself.Do you frequently have stomach problems - wind, indigestion, constipation and/or diarrhea?. Have you had bouts of anxiety, nervousness or depression for no apparent reason?

Has a doctor, more than once, told you he can find nothing wrong or that there's nothing to worry about saying that the rash, pain, (or whatever) will go away even though you've told him it recurs, or suggested your problem is stress related when you know it isn't?

The more questions you have answered YES to, the greater the likelihood that something you are eating or in your enviroment is Giving you allergic reactions..

This may well be because you have hidden allergies, or adverse responses to foods, molds ,parasites toxins etc that you either didn't know or hadn't been helped to understand.

For many people, the real problem is allergy.

The term "allergy" refers to an unusual response by the body to substances that are helpful, to most other people. According to most holistic medicine practitioners , the incidence of allergies is much higher than is commonly believed, but in many cases allergies are merely nuisances. But for other people, contact with a substance they are allergic to can produce toxins in the body that can result in a host of health conditions, many of them quite severe. Unfortunately, the majority of allergy sufferers tend to be unaware that they are allergic in the first place, or else they are unable to identify the substance(s) causing their allergic response.

Wrong diagnosis of Allergies may be associated with the following:

Semen allergies are very rare and are often misdiagnosed as a yeast infection
Milk allergy may be misdiagnosed as lactose intolerance due to similar symptoms such as diarrhea, cramps and bloating. Treatment with lactase enzyme for lactose intolerance will have no effect on symptoms if the patient is suffering from a milk allergy
An allergic reaction to seafood may be misdiagnosed as a seafood poisoning and vice versa. For example, ciguatera poisoning and seafood allergy may cause a tingling sensation on the tongue, lips and throat as well as gastrointestinal symptoms and headache
An allergic eye reaction may be misdiagnosed as an eye infection. However, this is complicated by the fact that eye allergies may lead to secondary eye infections
Allergies often produce symptoms that can be caused by other upper respiratory conditions such as colds, infections, sinusitis, exercise, excessive dust exposure, cold air and perfumes. This complicates diagnosis and leads to misdiagnosis
There are a number of skin allergies that can occur and they may be misdiagnosed as other skin conditions or the wrong type of skin allergy may be diagnosed. Accurate allergy diagnosis is essential as often a major part of the treatment involves avoidance of the triggering factor
The sneezing and runny nose associated with hayfever may be misdiagnosed as a simple cold - especially in infants or young children who are unable to elaborate on the symptoms they are experiencing.
Infant allergy in babies still being breastfed is often misdiagnosed as colic. The allergy may be a response to something the mother has eaten which is then transferred to the baby through the milk
A drug allergy may be wrongly diagnosed (in especially in children) in scenarios where a drug such as penicillin is administered to treat a bacterial infection such as an ear infection and the person subsequently develops a rash. The health physician may erroneously believe that the skin rash is a result of a penicillin allergy
Rashes caused by food allergies may be misdiagnosed as eczema
Symptoms of milk allergy may mimic those of a viral infection and lead to misdiagnosis. Common symptoms include phlegm, wheezing, diarrhea and weight loss
Symptoms of gluten allergy may mimic those of tropical intestinal parasites, lactose intolerance, intestinal lymphoma or excess bacteria in the small intestine. Common symptoms include diarrhea and weight loss
Allergy can result in asthma-like symptoms and be misdiagnosed simply as non-allergic asthma. Likewise, asthma may be misdiagnosed as an allergy. An accurate diagnosis is needed in order to appropriately treat these potentially serious conditions Source

"Mold is a fungus that comes in thousands of varieties and grows both outside and inside. In order to thrive. mold needs two things: water and warmth -- and you certainly don't have to endure a hurricane to find it multiplying in your home. "Mold spores are everywhere. They're just waiting to be watered to start growing," says Paul J. Pearce, PhD, assistant professor of pathology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Mold can be present indoors during the entire year. And in most of the country, this is the time when outdoor molds start to grow as well. They flourish in damp, shady areas such as piles of leaves, hay, grass, and soil, and they last through late fall. In warmer climates, they can be a year-round problem"

Originally, the concept of allergy was limited to a small group of obvious symptoms, such as runny nose, red eyes, sneezing, or skin rash. Today, many physicians and alternative practitioners recognize that a much wider range of problems may sometimes be due to allergy — including digestive difficulties, headaches, muscular aches and pains, arthritis, inadequate blood sugar control, addictions, and psychological problems, among many others.

Additional Allergy Symptoms

Many allergic symptoms are hidden or misdiagnosed, but the following are often telltale warning signs that allergies are present. In particular, they can be an indication of food allergies, the most common group of undetected allergens.

Physical Symptoms: dark circles, swelling or wrinkles under the eyes; vascular headaches; faintness or dizziness; sleepiness soon after a meal; insomnia; frequent waking during the night, or premature waking followed by an inability to return to sleep; runny or stuffy nose; postnasal drip; excessive mucus; watery eyes and/or blurred vision; ringing of the ears; earaches; recurrent ear infections (particularly common among children);

sinusitis; sore throats, hoarseness or chronic coughing; gagging; heart palpitations; chest congestion; mucus or undigested food in the stool; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; constipation; bloating after meals; flatulence; abdominal pains or cramping; extreme thirst; coated tongue; anal or vaginal itch; hives or rashes; dermatitis; brittle nails and hair; dry skin; dandruff; skin pallor; muscle ache; weakness and fatigue; arthritic symptoms or joint pain; symptoms of PMS;. frequent or urgent urination; and obesity.

Scientists acknowledge that allergens can contribute to mood alterations. In a 3-year study of 36 people with allergies, Paul S. Marshall, PhD, a psychologist at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, found that 69 percent reported feeling more irritable when their allergies flared up; 63 percent reported more fatigue; 41 percent said that they had difficulty staying awake; and 31 percent reported feeling "sad." So the idea that allergies might exacerbate mild depression in a few people who have other allergic symptoms isn't that far-fetched to some researchers" Source

Psychological Symptoms: anxiety or panic attacks; depressions; crying jags; aggressive behavior; irritability; mental dullness or lethargy; confusion; excessive daydreaming; restlessness; poor work habits; inability to concentrate; slurred speech; and indifference or lack of enthusiasm for life.

If you suffer from the above symptoms you also may have hidden allergies, and it is recommended that you consult a health care practitioner trained in their treatment.

"An allergic reaction occurs when a susceptible person is exposed to a specific protein. Because the body perceives this protein (an allergen) as being a threat, it produces a special material—a substance that recognizes allergens—known as Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody. A person who has a tendency to develop allergies tends to produce increased amounts of IgE. After the initial exposure to a specific allergen (such as "cat" or "dog" protein) the body reacts to future exposures by creating millions of IgE antibodies. These newly produced IgE antibodies then connect to special blood cells called basophils, and special tissue cells called mast cells. These cells are then "stimulated" to release histamine which causes the allergy symptoms: Itchy watery eyes and nose, scratchy throat, rashes, hives, eczema and even life-threatening anaphylaxis"

Deaths in children, adolescents, and adults who ingested foods to which they were highly allergic have been reported.1,2 These deaths are often caused by a "hidden" ingredient in the food to which the individual is allergic.1,3 Yunginger1 suggests that in the United States, more children and adolescents die annually as a result of food-induced anaphylaxis than as a result of insect stings. The majority of these deaths are due to severe allergy to peanut and nuts, and asthma appears to be an important risk factor for this form of allergy. Steinman HA. Hidden allergens in foods.

When a baby is allergic to milk, common manifestations are projectile vomiting, colic, recurrent ear or upper respiratory infections, or rashes. The symptoms disappear when the parent replaces dairy for the baby. Parents often say their child was allergic to dairy as an infant but can handle it now; actually, the manifestation has changed. Now, the allergy is manifesting as reading reversals, meltdowns, attention and focusing problems, hyperactivity or sensory processing problems. This is a tricky connection to make because it does not look like a typical allergy manifestation.

If you're typically feeling fat, bloated and tired, a hidden food allergy could be to blame

The number of people with allergies has dramatically increased in recent years. In The Whole Way to Allergy Relief & Prevention, allergist Jacqueline Krohn, M.D. wrote that experts in the field estimated that anywhere from 60-90% of the population in North America suffered from allergies. Other estimates are even higher. Many health practitioners believe that allergies are a leading cause of most undiagnosed medical symptoms, and that they play a role in most disease.

In one recent study, researchers vacuumed the bus and taxi seats all over one city in Brazil. "When you look for dander, you find it," says Weber. "People with pets are carrying animal dander on their clothes, and deposit it wherever they sit. Movie theaters, planes, it's pervasive.

Dander is an informal term for a material shed from the body of various animals, similar to dandruff. It is composed of skin cells. It is a cause of allergies in humans.[1] Older etymology has it that dander is a rare (perhaps Yorkshire) synonym of dandruff (OED). In the idiom of "getting dander up" the colloquial meaning, anger, is probably unrelated to the above usage.

Pet dander is generally worse in older animals than in younger animals, as older animals slough off more skin cells than younger animals. Dander is microscopic, and can be transported through the air. Through the air, dander can enter the mucous membranes in the lungs, causing allergies to some individuals.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The levels they deposit are high enough to trigger an allergic reaction. Half a dozen studies all over globe have looked at this issue -- the story's the same all over."

If you are experiencing an unexplained illness, there’s a good chance that allergies --
to food, chemicals, mold, pollution and more -- may be to blame.

"But talk to a traditional allergist, and he or she may tell you that less than 3% of the population suffers from allergies. Why the discrepancy? Traditional allergists believe there is only one kind of allergic response. This response is an acute, immediate reaction to a substance, occurring within minutes after exposure and producing symptoms like hives, wheezing, rash, sinus congestion, tearing, swelling or anaphylactic shock. These classical allergies are generally “fixed,” meaning that you’re going to have them for the rest of your life."

Though no one knows exactly what causes CFS, researchers have found that more than half of the people with CFS they've studied also have allergies. "I believe that being an allergic individual predisposes you to chronic fatigue syndrome," says Galland. "Chronic fatigue syndrome seems to be associated with an over-reactivity of certain parts of the immune system, which is similar to what we see in people with allergies."Source

But more and more allergists recognize other kinds of allergies, especially “delayed” or “hidden” food allergies. In this type of allergy, allergic reactions may occur hours or days after exposure, making it difficult to associate cause and effect (hence the description “hidden”). Most reactions occur within two to three days, but there have been instances where it took up to a week for a reaction to occur.

"Turns out, even the foam rubber, synthetic stuff gets just as contaminated as down feathers," "In any humid climate, there's a very good chance that pillows and toys -- no matter what they're stuffed with -- will get contaminated with dust mites and mold."

Common Indicators of Allergy

The following symptoms are often signs of an allergic reaction.

1.Unnatural or persistent fatigue
2.Weight fluctuations during the course of the day
3.Frequent puffiness in your face, ankles or fingers
4.Hot flashes (apart from menopause) or perspiration for no obvious reason
5.Inexplicable racing of, or pounding pulse
6.A history of food intolerance (i.e., certain foods that cause flatulence, sneezing, a runny nose, drowsiness, etc.)
7.Cravings for certain foods, particularly bread, sugary foods, milk or other dairy products, coffee, tea, or chocolate
8.Frequent headaches, migraine, asthma, depression, muscle aches, eczema or gastrointestinal problems.

If any of the above symptoms are a frequent occurrence in your life, there is a strong likelihood that allergies are part of overall health condition.

TESTING FOR ALLERGIES

Muscle Testing is a simple process that can be helpful in identifying foods which do not agree with your body. Any food or supplement can be easily tested to ensure that it is something that will strengthen and is compatible with your body...and help you to know which foods are weakening you and that you should avoid. The Muscle Testing link above will bring you very good information, but essentially muscle testing works by holding the food/item close to the body (chest area) and testing the impact this has on your overall muscle strenth. When something is compatible your muscles remain strong, when it does not agree with you it will be very apparent because you will experience muscle weakness.

Applied kinesiology proponents claim that nutritional deficiencies, allergies, and other adverse reactions to foods or nutrients can be detected by having the patient chew or suck on these items or by placing them on the tongue so that the patient salivates. Some practitioners advise that the test material merely be held in the patient's hand or placed on another part of the body. According to a 1987 book for the general public written with help from two leading chiropractic AK practitioners:

Many muscle-testing proponents assert that nutrients tested in these various ways will have an immediate effect: "good" substances will make specific muscles stronger, whereas "bad" substances will cause weaknesses that "indicate trouble with the organ or other tissue on the same nerve, vascular, nutrition, etc., grouping." A leading AK text, for example, states:

If a patient is diagnosed as having a liver disturbance and the associated pectoralis major [chest muscle] tests weak, have the patient chew a substance that may help the liver, such as vitamin A. If vitamin A is appropriate treatment, the muscle will test strong

On the Reliability and Validity of Manual Muscle Testing:

Weakness and fatigue are terms that are often used as if they mean the same thing, but in fact they describe two different sensations. It is important to know exactly what you mean when you say "I feel weak" or "I am fatigued" because it can help you and your doctor narrow down the possible causes of your symptoms.

Weakness is a lack of physical or muscle strength and the feeling that extra effort is needed to perform daily activities that require you to move your arms, legs, or other muscles.
Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy.
Both weakness and fatigue are symptoms, not diseases. Because these symptoms can be caused by many other health problems, the importance of weakness and fatigue can only be determined when other symptoms are evaluated.

Muscle weakness that is slowly getting worse requires a visit to a doctor.

Sudden muscle weakness and loss of function in one area of the body can indicate a serious problem within the brain (such as a stroke or transient ischemic attack) or spinal cord or with a specific nerve in the body.
Source

Finding a "weak" muscle enables the practitioner to pinpoint illness in the corresponding internal organs in the body. For example, a weak muscle in the chest might indicate a liver problem, and a weak muscle near the groin might indicate "adrenal insufficiency." If a muscle tests "weaker" after a substance is placed in the patient's mouth, it supposedly signifies disease in the organ associated with that muscle. If the muscle tests "stronger," the substance supposedly can remedy problems in the corresponding body parts. Testing is also claimed to indicate which nutrients are deficient. If a weak muscle becomes stronger after a nutrient (or a food high in the nutrient) is chewed, that supposedly indicates "a deficiency normally associated with that muscle." Some practitioners contend that muscle-testing can also help diagnose allergies and other adverse reactions to foods. According to this theory, when a muscle tests "weak," the provocative substance is bad for the patient.

Goodheart states that Applied kinesiology techniques can also be used to evaluate nerve, vascular, and lymphatic systems; the body's nutritional state; the flow of "energy" along "acupuncture meridians"; and "cerebro spinal fluid function." The 70-page chapter on "meridian therapy" in a leading Applied kinesiology textbook advises that subluxations influence the status of meridian system and vice versa =

Applied Kinesiology

The leading publisher/distributor of AK educational materials for chiropractors and their patients appears to be Systems DC, of Pueblo, Colorado. Its pamphlet on infections and child health states:

When an infection develops, have your child examined by your doctor using applied kinesiology. He can evaluate the energy patterns and usually find the reason that the infection developed in the first place. By correcting the energy patterns within the body and paying specific attention to nutritional supplements and dietary management, the infection which your child (using natural health care) does develop will be adequately taken care of in most cases

Some of the most common symptoms of a food allergy include a constantly runny nose, fluid retention, weight gain, headaches, skin complaints, arthritis, asthma, gastrointestinal complaints, menstrual disorders, hypoglycaemia, muscle weakness,and behavioural problems.More

Many muscle-testing proponents assert that nutrients tested in these ways will have an immediate effect: "good" substances will make specific muscles stronger, whereas "bad" substances will cause weaknesses that "indicate trouble with the organ or other tissue on the same nerve, vascular, nutrition, etc., grouping."

As you become faster with your testing, you can use it for deciding what you choose and use during your day. Your clothes, your foods and beverages, any purchase you are considering, any choice can be checked to see if the body is enhanced or diminished energy-wise by a certain selection.

I just wanted to say thanks for answering my question the other day.We used a home pregnancy test to double check and she in fact is not Pregnant :-) Your TruTester reading was 100% correct!

Thanks, M...

Unfortunately, in today’s medical climate, we respond to the health problems we have by prescribing pills instead of making substantive changes in our lifestyles . In fact, we are so far removed from that process now that we don’t even realize what is occurring.

It has been well established that allergies foods and toxins cause muscle weakness,,,The basic principle of muscle testing is" muscle weak" or "muscle strong",,,now you can test the foods you use and the toxins in your enviroment by using this muscle strength./weakness principle...
