What is a food allergy?
A food allergy is a harmful immune response that triggers an allergic, or negative and harmful reaction to food proteins that are normally harmless. An allergic reaction can range from a mild rash, to itchiness, hives, respiratory problems, digestive issues, or the worst-case scenario anaphylaxis. Oftentimes allergy symptoms or reactions become worse each time the person introduces the allergen into their body. This usually happens unintentionally because one may not link an itchy tongue or mild rash to something a child just ate until the symptoms worsen over time as the child continues to consume the problematic food source.
The Statistics on Food Allergies
The decision to become a parent comes with a whole host of worries and concerns, these days even more so with food allergies on the rise amongst children in the United States. As doctors continue moving back the age of food introduction in infants and parents closely monitor what their children are eating we begin to see more and more foods children are having some sort of allergic reaction to now more than ever.
The cause for concern is also at the forefront for parents because these days a majority of children are in school from a very young age, thus parents have to rely on other caregivers to ensure their child does not come into contact with a negative allergen.
Although there are more than 170 food allergens, the most common 8 include: Peanuts (which are actually a legume, not a nut), tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, fish and shellfish, and wheat, with sesame also becoming a rising concern.
These foods account for over 90% of allergic reactions.
One in every 13 children have a food allergy; roughly 5.9 million children under 18 suffer from one or more allergies.
In recent years the prevalence of food allergies in children has increased by 50%, with peanut or tree nut allergies seeming to have tripled within that same time period.
Children with food allergies are also more likely to suffer from asthma, eczema and other allergic or digestive conditions.
Luckily, most children are likely to outgrow a majority of food allergies, but this is not always the case. Allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish are usually lifelong.

About Dr. Ynge Ljung, A.P., ND
Since 1998, I - Dr. Ynge Ljung, have been treating allergies as an acupuncture physician.
Treating patients for many years that suffer with allergies, I soon found that everyone doesn’t have access to a practitioner and others were very overwhelmed by the price and the time it takes to have their allergies treated. And I wanted to help.
I wanted to give my patients their power back and so I created, The Allergy Kit, and 4 signature kits: Autism, Environmental, Food Allergies, and Emotional Health.
