There are four main categories
Substance inhaled into the lungs through the airways.
Substance taken into digsetive system through the mouth.
Substance injected into the skin, bloodstream, or musculature.
Substance that makes direct contact with the skin or the mucosa.
ALLERGY / SENSITIVITY
There are three types of food
METABOLIC FOOD DISORDER
Genetic inability to metabolize, or improper metabolization of food components. Lactose intolerance is a common example of the inability to metabolize lactose based on genetic predispositions.
Food sensitivity where the response mechanism is unknown and yet is similar
to an allergy whether it is severe or mild. A small percentage of asthma sufferers react to sulfites.
Anaphylactoid Response Histamine release is as powerful as a true allergy without the immune system where the substance has not been identified.
This is not the same as anaphylaxis.

The Allergy Relief Protocol uses a database of over 25,000 known and tested allergen substances. This extensive database allows us to treat symptoms using the exact allergens that cause reactions. We come in contact with many of these common substances on a daily basis.
Although a person may be allergic to one or several allergens, a multitude of allergens can complicate standard allergy treatments and symptoms can be compounded further. Unless each allergen or allergen group is identified and specifically addressed, reactions might go on indefinitely without discovering the exact underlying causes.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRUE ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITY
True food allergies occur when the immune system perceives a food protein as harmful and antibodies and histamine are released in response. These biochemicals are the cause of allergy symptoms. In actuality, less than 2% of adults and only 4 to 8% of children and infants have, what is considered true allergies (WHO, World Health Organization).
On the other hand, food sensitivities are much more common and consist of inappropriate reactions by the body to food and its components. To allergy sufferers, these sensitivities can hardly be considered less important than true allergies. However, both conditions are treated the same; by identifying the specific cause and reprogramming the body’s response.
Listed below are many of the common allergens and their substances that are identified in the Allergy Relief Protocol, but consider this as only a drop in the bucket of 25,000 allergens for which one could be sensitive.

Many supplements, foods, and vitamins, although healthy and safe may contain allergens in trace amounts but powerful enough to cause allergic reaction. These could include foods with vitamin C, vitamin B, minerals, citric acids and even Omega 3 oils.
Although these substances are generally healthy in safe doses, improper immune responses to any one or several of these substances can cause severe reactions and require many of foods containing them to be reduced or avoided entirely.
