Food Allergy & Intolerances | Allergy Test Australia | Blog | Information

Allergies are everywhere and are all year round. With it being Autumn here in Australia, many people may still be suffering from allergies and intolerances which often occur in the summer, like hay fever or a pollen intolerance. But there are some allergies and intolerances which occur all year round because they are related to foods. Well, a food allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to a harmless food. You can have a food allergy to anything, depending on what your body deems to be harmful. Unfortunately, there is no cure for allergies, but there are many ways you can manage your symptoms to ensure your life is not completely affected. For some of you, this may mean that you have to cut out foods which you usually eat on a regular basis.
