]]> Sesame allergy has been in the news a lot recently, and most people in the allergy testing industry cannot stop talking about it. But why? Well, the news has broken that sesame allergies are more common than previously thought, and sesame itself is about joining the big eight allergens, making it nine!

What are the big eight allergens?

Typically, there a handful of foods, which are ominously referred to as the ‘big eight’ and they are the foods which you are most likely to have an allergy to. Around the world, but particularly in the US, the UK, and Australia; milk, eggs, tree nuts, fish, crustacean, peanuts, wheat and soy, are all considered to be common allergens and harmful to people’s body.

These are the products that, by law, must be clearly labelled on all food packages. If someone asks you whether you have an allergy at a restaurant or at a party, they will most likely be expecting an answer mentioning one of the big eight.

Where is sesame allergy in the list?

Currently, sesame allergy isn’t considered to be that common and therefore sesame does not feature in the top eight. However, this could all be about to change… All around the world, sesame allergies are becoming increasingly common. There is no concrete evidence as to why this is happening, but the evidence is there to suggest that the number is rising sufficiently enough for people to take note. Allergic reactions to sesame can be severe, and often life-threatening.

If you are not sure if you have a sesame allergy or intolerance then you can find out for yourself here. In fact, according to CSPINET, a recently composed study has highlighted that one-third of children allergic to sesame was taken to hospital in a rush last year,

So, what can be done?

Well, there is a growing clamour for sesame to be included as a must-be labelled clearly ingredient on the food packages. You can also identify if you have a sesame allergy or food intolerance by ordering one of our tests here. Allergy Test Australia is here to help you.

A bit worried about consuming certain types of fish because you have discovered that you have a seafood intolerance? Summer is actually not that far away here in Australia! It means that the BBQ’s will be out in no time and you’ll be wanting to throw all that shrimp on the BBQ. Allergy Test Australia know that it is not that simple though. So many customers that we speak to either have an allergy or an intolerance to seafood and we often help them out.

Allergy Test Australia are able to offer advice, guide people and also provide quick and efficient results. If you are a first time reader of the Allergy Test Australia blog then keep reading on to gain some knowledge you never knew you needed. If you have never heard of a seafood intolerance then you ought to have an intolerance or allergy test to find out.

What is a seafood intolerance?

Seafood intolerance is different from a seafood allergy. If you have an allergy to seafood then your body is producing an abnormal response to what is usually considered as a harmless item. If you do have a seafood intolerance, then it is completely different. At Allergy Test Australia, we often find that people are using the terms allergy and intolerance interchangeably, but this is not recommended. An allergy can be life-threatening if not treated or managed correctly. A food intolerance is all about avoiding the food and avoiding the symptoms that come with it. If you are struggling with stomach issues, we would recommend an intolerance test. If you are coming up in rashes and nausea every time you are eating seafood then we would recommend an allergy test and also a consultation with your doctor.

Symptoms of a seafood allergy

The symptoms of a seafood allergy will generally appear within a couple of minutes of an individual ingesting the food. They can sometimes take up to an hour to appear, but when they do, the damage is often dangerous. So, if you ever eat seafood and then experience abdominal pain, dizziness, wheezing and swelling of the lips within the next two hours, you are likely to have a seafood intolerance. If you develop any signs or symptoms of anaphylaxis then you should immediately seek the advice of a doctor.

Symptoms of a seafood intolerance

If you are exhibiting the symptoms of a sensitivity to seafood, you will need to order a food sensitivity test to either confirm or allay your fears. Symptoms of intolerances are mainly in the digestive system, with diarrhea, constipation and fatigue often a sign that you have a food intolerance. There are various types of seafood, but you should be very careful and make sure you study which seafoods you can eat. Order an intolerance test to find out whether or not you have a seafood sensitivity.

Sometimes, there are long, hot days which are great for activities, and pollen levels can affect many people suffering from a pollen intolerance or pollen allergy. This often leads to people wishing for a rainy day (it’s true)! They want the pollen to be washed away, but it doesn’t always work like that. BUT, rain causes plant growth, which actually ends up producing more pollen! So, the question we are really asking, is rain actually good for people suffering from a pollen allergy?

There is some good news about rain and pollen allergy

You may or may not be aware that pollen counts tend to be higher when the weather is dry. You would expect rain to make plants grow, as this produces more pollen. So, a dry spell would mean less pollen surely, and less of the symptoms, including a runny nose and headaches! Well, a fun (or not) fact is that when it is dry, trees actually release more pollen, meaning the wind blows. This helps pollen to travel further and therefore have an impact on even more people!

So, having rain can actually be good if you are struggling with your symptoms of allergies. Light showers though! This washes the pollen away and keeps it from travelling through the air…

BUT, there is always a but…

Even though rain is good for pollen allergy, it can be bad. On the whole, it is better. But rain can cause issues for those with allergies to grass, weeds, dust and mold! This isn’t so good…

When it rains, and it pours, drops of rain can hit the ground with proper force. In turn, this results in clumps of pollen being split up! This means it can be dispersed quicker, which will cause an increase in allergy and allergic asthma symptoms, which come about from the shower. This tends to happen during more sudden and heavy rain, so you must be careful.

You shouldn’t be scared of rain or pollen

All in all, if you have identified that you have a pollen allergy thanks to Allergy Test Australia, then there are ways to manage it. You don’t have to stay inside and live in fear of rain and dust and pollen! It just won’t happen. We provide fantastic solutions, and detailed reports, as well as a 28 day follow up programme upon purchasing your test. Never worry about your intolerance and allergy symptoms again because Allergy Test Australia can help!

Order your test now and feel a load better today.

Well, well, well, what you think may be a healthy diet, could in fact be causing you a lot more harm than good. A food pyramid is not the perfect diet guide for EVERYONE! This is because it depends on your food intolerances and food allergies. There are even members of the same food group which have different effects on gut bacteria, as a study highlighted in the Daily Mail UK suggests.

What have the Daily Mail reported?

The Mail reported that researchers analysed the diets and stool samples of 34 people over 17 days… In fact, they even found that similar foods, such as vegetables had a different effect on different people. Leafy greens like kale and spinach had a similar effect, but vegetables like carrots had a different effect.

This shouldn’t put you off vegetables

We’re not saying you shouldn’t eat vegetables because of the symptoms that are possibly caused by a food allergy or intolerance, as any food can cause these symptoms. We tend to think of food in terms of broad categories of the food pyramid, and we separate vegetables, meats, dairy and other food products. But do you really know what a healthy diet is? Can food allergy and intolerances really affect you that much? Find out more about eating healthy foods and optimising your diet with a food intolerance test.

What does healthy eating involve?

As long as you have checked your allergies and intolerances, healthy eating is very beneficial. Typically, healthy eating consists of vegetables, salads and fruit, and a serving of wholemeal cereals and bread, potatoes, pasta and rice. Unfortunately for many individuals, these foods also contain ingredients which are the most popular (for want of a better word) food allergens. Common food allergens include wheat, gluten, fish, shellfish and nuts, as well as many more. So, in order to eat healthier and avoid issues like bloating, headaches and stomach issues, you need a food allergy test from Allergy Test Australia.

For more information on food allergy testing, you can check out our website and see exactly what you need to do in order to improve your healthy lifestyle. Identify your food allergy and food intolerances with Allergy Test Australia.

3 Reasons You Need to Stop the Feeling of Fatigue /3-reasons-need-stop-feeling-fatigue/ Fri, 02 Aug 2019 15:44:50 +0000 /?p=357462 If you find yourself feeling dragged out all of the time, you certainly are not alone.  More and more people find themselves permanently exhausted.  When it comes to fatigue, its potential causes and reasons why you need to kick it in the butt, here’s what you should know.

If you find yourself feeling dragged out all of the time, you certainly are not alone.  More and more people find themselves permanently exhausted.  When it comes to fatigue, its potential causes and reasons why you need to kick it in the butt, here’s what you should know.

Common causes of fatigue:

While this is not an exhaustive — see what we did there? — list of fatigue causes, these are the most common reasons that people find themselves worn out all of the time.  Some of them may surprise you!

  • An undiagnosed allergy: When you find yourself feeling tired, the last thing you may think as the culprit is an allergy. However, allergy testing could be just the thing that you need to see if your fatigue is due to a food allergy.
  • Stress: As stress and pressure build in our life, we tend to have higher heart rates and bad eating habits. This all wears our bodies down and we will feel fatigued as a result.  Finding a healthy way to deal with stress could be helpful to make sure your body stays strong and rested.
  • Diet: When you eat poorly — or not enough — your body doesn’t have enough to run on. This will wear you down and may even interrupt your sleep routine, which will also wear your body down even further.  This can become a never-ending cycle in and of itself, unfortunately.

3 reasons to stop feeling tired:

Figuring out why you’re tired, let alone figuring out how to deal with it, seems like it’s going to take a lot of energy.  So, why do it?  Well, here are 3 fantastic reasons to help you find the motivation to find out the source and deal with that fatigue:

1. Your family needs you:

This is not intended as a guilt trip, just something that is important to remember. Your loved ones all depend on you to be part of their life in some way or form.  Make sure there you’re there to be a part of their life and for them to be a part of yours, too.  You can’t do that if you’re tired.

2. You deserve better:

We can’t say this enough. You are stuff to do and a life to live.  You can’t do that if you’re trying to sneak in a nap and rest.  You deserve a fulfilling life with all sorts of adventures and excitement.  Kick fatigue to the curb and get back to your life.

3. You can get more done with less energy output:

When you are well-rested, you’ll get everything done faster and easier. This means that you can focus more on your life and all of the people in it, all at no cost to you.

You can enjoy your life again, you just need to figure out what is causing your fatigue and how to cut it out.  Don’t worry, the results will be well worth it. For more information on identifying your fatigue and learning how Allergy Test Australia can help you, order your intolerance test today.

Please please please do not confuse your allergy with the common cold. It is so important that you identify whether or not allergies are causing your pain. We know its Winter right now, but spring and summer will be here before you know it!

Who is already looking forward to the blooming flowers, the warm sunshine and chirping birds? They are all a welcome arrival for many people after the dark and cold winter months… unless you are suffering from seasonal allergies. Over in America, around 8% of adults are suffering when the season is changing. Others are suffering from symptoms of food allergy. Could you be one of them?

Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is a condition that is caused by your immune system and usually occurs due to a pollen allergy. It is a condition when your immune system reacts to the environment. BUT, why are we talking about this? As seasonal allergies actually have nothing to do with hay or fevers themselves. If you think you might have seasonal allergies, you should order an allergy or intolerance test and see how your symptoms match up against the four following things.

1) It feels like more than a coincidence

If you think of sneezing, wheezing and watery eyes, these may not just be a coincidence. But what are the symptoms of allergies? Frequent sneezing, watery or itchy eyes, congestion AND a runny nose. An itchy throat is often caused by an allergy. These symptoms all added up can cause intense suffering and pain for people who need an allergy test.

Interestingly, most seasonal allergies are caused by pollen from trees, grasses and weeds. But just because it is winter, this doesn’t mean you won’t suffer from any intolerance symptoms, you’re probably allergic to an indoor allergen like dust mites.

2) Rare symptoms begin appearing

Itchy eyes, sneezing and an itchy throat are so common that people often dismiss them as a normal illness. These less common, but still irritating symptoms can sometimes indicate seasonal allergies…

Coughing can be a sign of allergies, especially asthma, but again you need to make sure you know what is causing these symptoms. Food allergies could occur all year round, so if it is an allergy you need to see! Fatigue and tiredness are also signs of an allergy.

3) Confirming food allergies and seasonal allergies

To treat your seasonal allergies, you need to first confirm them as seasonal allergies and not food allergies. Your diet is so important in many ways, and could actually be the thing that is holding you back. Our 28 day follow up programme provides you with all the info, advice and tips that you need to follow a diet plan. Allergy Test Australia are determined to help you, and this is highlighted by how dedicated we are to help you learn whether it is an allergy or intolerance that you are suffering from.

4) Treatment of seasonal allergy

If, thanks to your allergy test, seasonal allergies are confirmed, then there are plenty of solutions. One of them includes keeping yourself safe from the outside once your allergies are active. Shutting the doors and windows may not be ideal, but it is necessary. We see this suggested everywhere and are keen advocates of it, but we think you should wear a dust mask if you are outside. Take a shower at the end of the day to wash the pollen away as well!

What are the best and worst countries to travel to if you are suffering from a food allergy or a food intolerance? Well, it depends on which items you are allergic to! Say, if you have a wheat intolerance, then we do not recommend you travel to the United Kingdom

Wheat intolerance in the United Kingdom

The UK is one of the biggest producers of wheat around the world and the western diet will typically be bursting with meals which contain wheat as the main ingredient. The UK population love a slice of toast in the morning and also consuming bread, beer and other wheat-filled products.

There is nothing wrong with this unless you have a wheat intolerance of course! A wheat intolerance occurs if someone usually eats too much wheat and the body just cannot tolerate it any longer.

This can usually be managed by monitoring how much wheat you are consuming, and in the case of an elimination diet, you would completely remove it from your diet. The UK tends to produce between 14-15 million tonnes of wheat each year.

United States can be allergy-friendly

The United States can be an allergy-friendly environment, but it depends on where and what you are allergic or intolerant to. Even though the facts and statistics say that up to 25% of America suffers from an allergy, the country unites cuisines from all around the world.

This gives you endless options to choose from. So, if you do have wheat intolerance or intolerance to something else like gluten, then you will usually be able to find something to try.

If what you are looking for is a diverse cuisine, then the U.S. is probably your best bet for an allergen-free vacation.

Intolerances could explain symptoms like fatigue

If you are struggling with intolerance symptoms, many of which include fatigue, bloating, headaches and stomach upset, then it could be that you have an allergy or an intolerance.

Something like wheat intolerance is not easy to identify unless you take a test as it is in almost any ingredient. India is also a good place for you to go on holiday if you have either a gluten or wheat intolerance.

For more information on intolerance testing or allergy testing, then you can order your intolerance test from www.allergytestaustralia.com right now.

Wow, a news report has indicated that to avoid peanut allergies and the subsequent symptoms, you need to give babies peanut butter before they turn one, and this will help them to avoid allergies, as reported by authorities. Yes, you read that right, so if you are considering allergy testing to test for peanut allergy or any other, and want to manage your child’s symptoms, this could help you. 

Food and Peanut allergy

The report states that parents should introduce foods, including peanut butter into their baby’s diet before they turn one year old, and this will actually reduce the chances of you developing an allergy. This is very important to read considering Australia has one of the highest rate of food allergies in the world along with the US! In Australia, around one in 10 babies born here are allergic to common food allergens like peanuts, eggs, and even milk. Many of them are diagnosed before they are one year of age.

The National Allergy Strategy

The National Allergy Strategy (NAS) believe that the country’s allergy rates are only going to get worse, with Australia seeing a 7 per cent a year rise in the last five year. Food allergies are becoming more prominent but Allergy Test Australia can help both parents and their children to manage their symptoms. Unfortunately, as allergies are life-long and also life-threatening, there is no cure, but avoiding the allergen is a must. This is why we recommend allergy testing as a necessity.

What should you do?

But should you be giving peanuts or peanut butter to a child even though they are potentially allergic? Some people would think no but there has been research which has identified this, and there is even more research being ploughed into the development. Allergy Test Australia itself possesses state-of-the-art laboratories which help us to establish whether or not a child possesses an allergy or an intolerance. Remember, if an intolerance has been identified then it is not necessarily the end of the world. We can guide you through the process of managing your intolerances, and help you to understand exactly what foods you need to avoid. can nuts affect your bloated stomach?

Interesting quote from ABC

“In a statement, the Federal Government said it was “supportive” of the NAS and had provided $1.1 million in funding for it since 2016. It advises parents to not give children peanuts, or food containing peanuts, before the age of six months.”

This shows that food allergies should still be taken seriously, and if anyone does not know that they have a peanut allergy then it could lead to life-threatening symptoms like anaphylactic shock. So, to identify whether or not you have a peanut allergy or any other food allergies, order your allergy test today.

Keep your house allergy-free this Winter

With Winter having crept up on us, some of us may not have our house prepared for the Winter in Australia. Whether you live on your own or with your family, there are many reasons which mean your allergy may have gotten worse. Therefore, it is vital that you take an allergy test to find out what (food and non-food) items you are allergic to. Here at Allergy Test, we have outlined what steps you should take to keep your house allergy-free.

1) Symptoms

Firstly, it is important to realise the effect that some items are having on your body. You may not even realise it at the time, but with a real wealth of environments throughout Australia, your body has to adapt to certain cultures on a regular basis. Check your body for rashes and start keeping a food diary as you look to ascertain which foods are causing your body the most harm. Other major signs that you may have an intolerance to something include headaches, fatigue, bloating and feeling sick. If you have these symptoms, an allergy test may be the perfect test for you.

2) Testing times

Dealing with your symptoms can be a testing time for many, especially when you learn you have an intolerance or an allergy to a certain food. If you decide to take up the option of taking a test with us, you will receive a comprehensive report with your hair sample being tested against 600 food and non-food items. Our expert team will go the extra mile to ensure that you fully understand your results and can take in what this means moving forward. It may lead to you altering your diet, being careful about what you do outside, and what environments you encounter. All results include items identified as showing a reaction of 85% and over. Having conducted many thousands of bioresonance hair tests, we at Allergy Test believe this percentage to represent the point for which most symptoms arise.

3) Be aware of your environment

Australia has one of the highest incidences of allergy in the world, with more than four million people affected. One in ten Australians has asthma and one in three has allergies. Although many of these are associated with Summer all over the world, in Australia these are increasingly prevalent in the Winter. Forget spiders, snakes and other creepy crawlies, allergies are the ones to watch out for in Australia.

4) Don’t let the cold beat you

The temptation during the cold winter months is to shut all the windows, turn the heating on and wrap up warm. One of these isn’t recommended as it can cause issues in your home. Alongside all the food-related allergies we may face, we can sometimes bite back against other allergies, including the build up of mould. Closing all the vents and windows in our house will keep us warm but may not stop us sneezing. This is because mould and dust mites can build up without fresh air and can cause more harm to our body than we think.

5) Don’t forget about the food

Remember, even though we are focusing on keeping away the environment allergies this winter, there are still foods that we can’t eat. We must not neglect these allergies as they are still harmful. As there is still no cure for food allergies, an allergy test will enable you to be aware of what foods are still harmful to you.

6) Be Sensible

Essentially, even though hay fever will not be an issue in the Winter (we hope), there are always potential allergens which your body cannot tolerate. We recommend you stay vigilant, but do continue to enjoy yourself this Winter, tucking into delicious food and airing out your house.

7) Come to Allergy Test, we are continuing to improve lives

Yep, we want to enable you to help yourself. After receiving your results and taking heed of our tips for an enjoyable Winter, there are other ways which we love to help you. You can speak to our fantastic customer service team, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week online, via LiveChat.

Struggling with a bloated stomach? It could be that you are experiencing food intolerance symptoms, and bloat is one of the most common problems that many people suffer from, especially here in Australia. Sufferers of bloat are often confused at what is causing their bloated stomach, and therefore people look desperately for ways to stop it happening. This is where an allergy test or an intolerance test fits perfectly for you. Take  a look below at what could be causing your symptoms:

Finding an effective treatment

One of the most effective treatments that people recommend to help others cope with their bloated stomach is a Low-FODMAP diet, as this should help to alleviate your symptoms. This does, however, depend on the food items that are highlighted in your report. FODMAP is an acronym which describes four different sugars, most of which are consumed in regular diets. As part of food intolerance symptoms, people will experience a number of issues, including gas, abdominal pain, bloated stomach, nausea, diarrhoea and constipation. See how a Low-FODMAP diet can help you and also don’t forget to take advantage of our 28 days follow up.

Know what you are eating

If you are struggling with food intolerance symptoms and are aiming to revolutionise your diet, then you may want to check out these tips from SIBO Survivor on what you can do to ensure you eat better when eating away from the house. This is because constantly experiencing a bloated stomach can be extremely frustrating and really knock on people’s mental health. Nobody wants to be that person that has to be fussy and constantly talk about their allergies but sometimes needs must.

Find out the cause of your Bloated Stomach

With intolerance tests and allergy tests, both Allergy Test and other doctors can easily find out which factor is the most likely cause of your bloated stomach and other symptoms, including diarrhoea and constipation. Once the actual cause of your food intolerance symptoms is pinpointed, physicians can determine the appropriate diet and other treatment measures that can help cure you. Don’t worry though, if food intolerance is identified, there are plenty of ways that this can be managed.
