Allergies to all kinds of substances are very common. You name it, and there is somebody somewhere allergic to it. Even tap water and air are fair game.
Sensitivity to food is an area of some controversy in medicine. But there is no question that it exists. If you suffer from food sensitivities, you’ll be happy to note that BioSlim intrinsically avoids many of the most common allergenic foods - simply by avoiding highly processed, chemical laden items. But it is possible to be allergic to good food too. If, by some unlucky chance, you happen to be allergic to one of the healthful foods recommended in the BioSlim Food Plan, or to a nutritional supplement, you may have to cut it out.
If you feel you may be allergic or sensitive to any food or food supplement, the only sure way to find out is to stop ingesting the suspected item for at least 3-4 days, see if your symptoms disappear, then restart ingesting the suspected product to see if the symptoms return. If they do, you should repeat the test to see if the symptoms disappear and return again, and if they are lessened or increased the second time around. If they are milder, you can continue to use the product, with care. If they are worse, you may have to stop. This method of avoidance then challenge is the most accurate way - better than any medical test - to determine the presence or absence of allergy or sensitivity to food, and for that matter, to just about anything.
The medical treatment of allergies often consists of avoidance (see above), desensitization (done by a physician), and/or symptom reduction with medication.
Nutritional Factors: Respiratory allergies may be helped by vitamin A. General allergies often respond to pantothenic acid, the other B vitamins, vitamin C, bioflavanoids (quercetin is one of the strongest and best bioflavonoids), vitamin E, calcium, and especially magnesium. Note: The BioSlim Formulas contain a careful balance of these nutrients in correct quantities. (Note: also found useful is the herb Stinging Nettle.)
