Conventional Therapies for Food Allergies and Food Intolerances

Find out how most mainstream doctors treat common food allergies and food intolerances

For those who experience severe allergic reactions to specific foods, immediate use of a doctor-prescribed self-injector of epinephrine is often required. You should always carry such a self-injector with you and, if you use the epinephrine, you should go to the emergency room immediately so that your condition can be monitored. You should also always wear a medical alert bracelet to let emergency medical personnel know of your condition, so they can react quickly with the correct treatment.

When it comes to treating the more minor symptoms of food allergies or food intolerances, however, mainstream medical practitioners often overlook the role of proper digestion in correcting the problem.

What Most Doctors Ignore

In a nutshell, when a food isn’t broken down adequately in the digestive system, "foreign" protein molecules can reach the bloodstream and provoke an allergic reaction. The reaction may take place immediately or it may be delayed for several hours, making it more difficult to isolate the offending food.

While most physicians are quick to recommend an elimination diet or harsh corticosteroids and other drugs to treat the symptoms of food allergies, they are less likely to consider other aids to help improve your body’s ability to digest the offending nutrients. As an alternative to conventional medical treatment of minor common food allergies and food intolerances, therefore, see my all-natural remedies that both treat the symptoms of food allergies and food intolerances and improve your digestive capabilities.
