What is the difference between allergy and intolerance?

The term ‘food intolerance’ and ‘food allergy’ are often confused and are two very different things.
Genuine food allergy is relatively rare. Only about 2% of the adult population are affected. A food allergy is a swift response by the body’s immune system to a food protein when the body’s immune system mistakes a food for an ‘invader’. This results in a rapid and intense allergic reaction, often within minutes but generally within a maximum of two hours. Allergic reaction is commonly associated to peanuts, eggs or seafood.
Food intolerance is characterised by a slow and non-life threatening immune re response. Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.
When foods and drinks are digested the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body. Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and can drive the immune system to produce antibodies called Immunoglobulin G’s (IgG).
 
Allergy vs Intolerance what are the specific responses?

Food Intolerance: Reactions up to 72 hours after eating; Multiple foods can be involved; Any organ system can be affected; Very common Trace amounts of foods can cause reactions; Caused by raised IgG antibody; Symptoms can clear after avoidance (3-6 months)
Food allergy: Immediate reactions (2 hours or less); Rarely more than 1 to 2 foods; Primarily skin, airways and digestive system; Difficult to self-diagnose; Caused by raised IgE antibody and therefore life-long Lifelong

On average people who suffer from food intolerances usually have between 4 and 8 trigger foods.

Many people suffer for years, having formed a coping mechanism to deal with the symptoms without necessarily getting to the bottom of it.
Food intolerance is a condition with a wide range of symptoms including: gut symptoms, bloating, migraines, low mood, weight gain, fatigue and skin problems.
More specifically the following symptoms can often improve and sometimes clear completely when avoiding the foods that trigger IgG immune response.

  • Bloating
  • Constipation

Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat, which whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on someone’s quality of work and home life.

The way that food can affect our everyday life is often difficult to explain and it is common for people to try and eliminate foods from their diet to help themselves feel better. Often they don’t know which foods to try and eliminate and have to guess. Many people don’t know that identifying food intolerances† can be an important element of optimising health and wellbeing.

Testimonials

"I had been away from home for several months working and I booked a colonic with Wellsprings on my return.

My wife had mentioned a Coffee Enema in the past and I thought while I was here I would give it a go.

After talking with Lynne a few of the topics discussed rang true to how I was feeling ,in myself and in my head and so I went ahead with the enema.

My experience minutes after completion were of weightlessness in my legs and my mind just felt totally clear.

I felt it cleansed and refreshed me, I am now doing 1 a day for 14 days at home and its remarkable. 

You have to try it....seriously."

Testimonials

"When I went for my first sound massage with Lynne I had no idea what to expect, but I found it to be an absolutely amazing experience!

I had issues with stress at the time and felt like a weight had been lifted. I almost floated out of the room afterwards.

The experience was incredibly serene and calming, and I felt the effects for many days afterwards.

Lynne is a wonderful person who immediately puts you at ease, and I would wholeheartedly recommend a sound massage with her to anyone."
