Assess Your Symptoms

Allergies are a hyperactive response by the immune system to something it perceives as a threat. Normally harmless, these irritants can trigger an array of responses, including runny nose, watery eyes, itchy skin, and so on. 

While millions of people suffer from seasonal allergies due to pollen levels, others are affected by the foods they eat, whether that be proteins in refined bread, peanuts, or soy. 

While the solution for most allergies is simply avoiding the troublesome irritants, it is seldom that simple. Read the following articles to determine if the symptoms you feel are being caused by an allergic reaction and what you can do to protect yourself.
