Allergies Q&A

What are allergies?

Allergies are a physical reaction triggered by an oversensitivity in your immune system. When you have an allergy, your body responds to certain substances as though they are a threat, when in reality, they pose no danger. Common allergies include:

  • Pollen
  • Pet dander
  • Dust mites
  • Insect stings
  • Latex
  • Molds
  • Penicillin

Certain foods, such as peanuts, wheat, eggs, soy, shellfish, and milk, often cause allergies. The team at Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas specializes in diagnosing and treating food allergies, helping you avoid the potentially serious consequences of contact with a food allergen.

What symptoms do allergies cause?

Allergies to substances you inhale, like pollen, cause streaming eyes, runny nose, and frequent sneezing. Food allergies can cause a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Irritation of the mouth, lips, and throat
  • Digestive disorders
  • Migraine headaches
  • Obesity and the inability to lose weight
  • Chronic fatigue
  • ADD (attention deficit disorder) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
  • Joint pain
  • Eczema
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Skin conditions
  • Sinus infections
  • Excessive asthma attacks
  • Decreased immune system

Food allergies can also cause potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis. This condition can make your throat and face swell, cut off your airway, cause a sudden drop in blood pressure, and may lead to unconsciousness.

To determine what you're allergic to, Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas performs state-of-the-art food allergy testing.

How are allergies treated?

Treatment for allergies typically involves over-the-counter or prescription medication. However, at Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas, they use a functional medicine approach.

Your provider works to find the underlying source of your symptoms by isolating the food allergens within your body. They also look at your lifestyle and any underlying health problems so they can develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

Treating every patient as a complete person rather than just a collection of symptoms means the team at Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas can provide effective holistic healing methods, including chiropractic care.

Your allergies don't have to impact your quality of life. Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas offer a free initial consultation to see how they can help you achieve optimal wellness. For relief from your allergies, call their closest office or book an appointment online today.
