The Wellness Institute offers patients access to the most comprehensive and effective food allergy and intolerance testing, period.

There has never been a more efficient way of diagnosing food allergies and intolerances.
Food intolerance is a phenomenon that affects millions of Americans – whether they know it or not. Food intolerance differs from food allergies in a number of ways. First, in contrast to food allergies, which are immune system responses, usually to proteins, food intolerance is characterized by an adverse reaction to food in the stomach or digestive tract. In food allergies, but not food intolerance, the body inexplicably mistakes an ingredient of a food for a harmful pathogen and creates antibodies to combat it.
As with other immune responses, food allergies cause inflammation, irritation, nausea, rash or hives. Food intolerance responses are different, but in some cases, only slightly. Lack of a certain digestive enzyme or sensitivity to chemical ingredients like monosodium glutamate may cause food intolerance. When an individual has a food intolerance, it may manifest itself as gas, cramps or bloating. Vomiting, headaches, irritability or nervousness can also result from food intolerance. But like food allergies, food intolerance may result in diarrhea, nausea, or stomach pain as well. Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies. Lactose intolerance, the most common food intolerance, affects about 10 percent of Americans.
A glance at the above symptoms lists confirms that it can be difficult to tell the difference between food allergy and food intolerance without professional help. Differentiating between food allergy and intolerance can help patients and physicians to develop a plan to avoid and address adverse reactions. For example, this knowledge can help illuminate which foods might trigger symptoms of a food intolerance. In the case of food allergy, physicians can advise patients about antihistamine use, which may prevent a potentially deadly reaction should the allergic accidentally ingest the trigger of his or her food allergy. Specialists at The Wellness Institute of the Americas have superior methods of diagnosing food allergies and intolerances. Cutting edge lab tests illuminate and eliminate sources of food allergy and food intolerance from the patient’s diet.
