Allergic diseases can develop at any age and can also be inherited from your family members. If one parent has an allergic disease, the estimated risk of a child developing allergies is 25% and this will increase if both parents have allergies. Also, an allergic mother is more likely to pass on the disease to the child than a father.

When your body mistakes something that is normally harmless for something dangerous it tries to get rid of what it thinks is a virus. Your body attempts to get rid of the foreign substance causing symptoms like sneezing, watery eyes, itchy or runny stuffy nose. This is called an "allergic reaction". The first time your body encounters an allergen, your immune system may consider it harmful and form antibodies to get rid of it. If your body produced an antibody when you were a child, it would still be present in your system when you are 30, which means long-lived sensitivity to allergies.

Cause of allergies can be what we breathe in: smoke, dust, pollen, fungi and chemicals.
What we eat: nuts (especially peanuts), beans, potatoes, carrots, rice, bananas, apples, oranges, milk, fish, lobsters, shrimps, crabs. What we come into contact with: animals, insect and mite products, plant materials, cosmetics, plastics and other chemicals.
Drugs: penicillins, cephalosporins, insulin, vaccines, blood products.
Insect bites: such as bees and wasps

In the field of holistic medicine, simple allergy testing methods have been developed. The most important of these is muscle testing (applied kinesiology) and the vegatest (an electromagnetic instrument). Both of these methods have shown to be extremely effective and accurate. Muscle testing is usually preferred as it is simpler to use and involves no discomfort to the patient. It may also be used with children, infants and the elderly.
