Do you suffer from mysterious symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, stuffed nose, headaches, mood swings, skin breakouts, bloating and joint pains? Did you check with your doctor and all tests came up normal? Have you tried different treatments with no satisfactory results?

If you answered yes to the above questions, there is a strong possibility that you have hidden allergies that are underlying your health problems. With one in three people struggling with hidden allergies, they are now seen as an epidemic.

What is Allergy?

Allergy is an immune reaction to toxins in the environment or to food. It can be caused by environmental toxins such as chemicals, fume exhaust and dust as well as foods that are not tolerated by the body due to an intolerance or sensitivity. The most common allergenic foods are dairy, wheat (gluten), soy, corn and eggs.

What are Possible Symptoms of Hidden Allergies?

Allergy cause inflammation in the body that can show up in very different ways and organs of the body. Symptoms that might be caused by hidden allergies include:

  • Unexplained Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Brain Fog
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Muscle aches
  • Joint pains
  • Running nose
  • Sneezing
  • Bloating
  • Tummy aches
  • Constipation or diarrhea

In my oakville holistic nutrition practice, I’ve helped so many clients overcome one or more of the above seemingly unrelated symptoms and in most cases I’ve discovered that hidden allergies or sensitivities are the underlying cause of their problems.

By following a holistic health plan that provides them with a hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory diet and a healthy lifestyle that ensures a clean home and work environment usually results in impressive results within a short period of time.

3 Simple Tips to Reduce Allergenic Load

  1. Eat a whole foods diet: Eat natural whole foods with minimal processing and packaging. This ensures less exposure to chemicals and toxins in additives and preservatives.
  2. Detoxify your environment: Avoid air fresheners, scented candles and chemical cleaning sprays. Use natural alternatives such as essential oils, baking soda and vinegar instead.
  3. Take time for relaxation: stress increases inflammation and weakens your immune system causing your allergies to flare up. Taking time every day to practice a relaxation technique such as yoga, meditation or simple breathing can help you heal your allergies a swell as improve your overall health.


Although Hidden allergies can underlie so many common health conditions, they can be easily missed and are usually not addressed by conventional medicine as a possible underlying factor. However a holistic nutritionist is trained to pin point hidden allergies and use a targeted health plan to help clients eliminate allergens from their diet and environment and rebuild the immune system.
