Classic allergic reactions such as a peanut allergy are immediate and can be life-threatening, however, they are usually simple to identify. For many other unpleasant symptoms or conditions, finding the cause can be more complex and needs the guidance of a Specialist who will look at the person holistically rather than isolating symptoms and treating them individually. Often the cause of ill-health is an overload in the immune system that results in a variety of symptoms. These often seem unrelated but are in fact connected. In addition, changes in a person's DNA and the chemistry of the cells makes the person more susceptible to ill health. At Allergy Medical UK our aim is to identify and treat the cause, not just the symptoms.
