About Allergies
What is an allergy? What is an intolerance? What is a sensitivity or hypersensitivity?

A condition of unusual sensitivity of one individual towards one or more substances which may be harmless or even beneficial to a majority of other individuals.  In order words, an energy imbalance between the energy of the person and the substance causing unpleasant physical, physiological and/or psychological reactions in the person's body is called an allergy.  Any substance capable of producing such reaction is called an allergen.

If the reaction is mild, it is called an intolerance.  When the reactions are more than mild, it can be called sensitivity reactions.  When they are very reactive or cause prolonged symptoms causing acute or chronic illness, that is called an allergic reaction.  True allergies are also capable of causing immunoglobulin productions so that IgE (Immunoglobulin E) will be elevated in the blood.  People who suffer from intolerances and sensitivity reactions do not have elevation of immunoglobulins in the blood.  In fact there is no valid laboratory test available to detect intolerances and sensitivities.
