Food Allergy Center Delayed Patterns

Delayed patterns of food allergy are not obvious and generally go unrecognized. Symptom onset is delayed hours to days after eating foods and chronic disease is often the result.

Despite medical advances, more than 150 million people in the USA and Canada are not well and receive little or no help from modern medicine. The least understood illness patterns are ill-defined and chronic. Our theory is that immune responses to food proteins cause some of this suffering and can be corrected with diet revision.

Dr Gislason stated: "For many years I saw patients who complained of being sick-all-over. The majority of these patients who complied with my instructions improved with diet revision and remained in better health as long as they stayed with a "safe diet". I developed a standard method of diet revision, now called the Alpha Nutrition Program.

Most patients I saw had chronic illness with features of a recurrent flu-like syndrome. They often had digestive complaints and most over the years accumulated health problems with diagnoses such as migraine, fibromyalgia, depression, chronic rhinitis or sinusitis, asthma, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and arthralgias or joint pains. Their illnesses evolved over time. Often there was a "background noise" of milder but chronic symptoms, punctuated episodically by more acute and dramatic events. Most complained of fatigue, irritability, digestive disturbances, reduced exertional tolerance, sleep disturbances, flushing, sweating, swelling and cognitive dysfunction. Some recalled a lifetime of symptoms that began with colic, rhinitis, recurrent otitis media and/or eczema in infancy and progressed through different symptom patterns as the years went by."

The delayed patterns of food allergy can be the cause of chronic and disabling hypersensitivity disease. The stakes are high both for individual patients and for the society as a whole. None of the common hypersensitivity diseases have been solved and most appear to rage on, afflicting increasing numbers of patients with chronic and disabling diseases. Asthma, allergy, rheumatic diseases, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, thyroiditis, psoriasis are examples of hypersensitivity diseases which involve humoral and cell-mediated immunity. We use celiac disease - wheat allergy- as a prototype which demonstrates the prolific ability of food allergy to produce a wide range of diseases.
