You’re feeling nauseous, tired, dizzy, fatigued, anxious, and your skin is breaking out in hives. You may be having a reaction to something you ate, but is it a food allergy you are experiencing or a food intolerance? Correctly identifying the issue could help you with a whole host of health issues that you may not realize are connected to your food. “Food allergies involve an immune system reaction to a particular food, such as peanuts, eggs or milk. These reactions can be serious and even life threatening,” said Sherry Torkos, holistic pharmacist and author of more than a dozen books on natural health and healing. Join us for an exciting show and learn that it is vital to rule out food allergies with your clinician first before tweaking your diet for a food intolerance .
