Food allergy (Nutrition)
While food allergy is caused by the immune system, a reaction that reponds when the body mistakes a food as harmful, food intolerance is caused by substances that naturally occur in foods or food processing methods resulting to difficulties in digesting the food. Both food allergy and food intolerance lead to the body adversely reacting to certain types of food. A nutritionist can help you understand the foods that are causing the symptoms, develop a diet that will help you prevent the symptoms while maintaining a balanced and healthy diet.
