Food and Environmental Allergies | Atlanta Integrative & Internal Medicine


Food and environmental allergies are immune system responses to certain substances that are harmless to most people. However, for people with allergies, the immune system sees these substances, known as allergens, as dangerous and overreacts by releasing chemicals like histamine, causing various symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild, such as sneezing, runny nose, or hives, to severe, such as anaphylaxis.

From an integrative medicine approach, food and environmental allergies manifest as an imbalance in the immune system, which is influenced by multiple factors, including genetics, lifestyle, diet, and environmental exposures. Therefore, treating food and environmental allergies through integrative medicine aims to identify and address the root cause of the immune system imbalance rather than just treating the symptoms.

At Atlanta Integrative & Internal Medicine, we provide a holistic approach to healthcare. Our integrative medicine practitioners use a combination of conventional and alternative therapies to treat food and environmental allergies. We help patients reduce their reliance on medication and improve their overall health and well-being by taking a personalized and holistic approach. Our team is committed to helping you achieve optimal health and wellness through integrative medicine.
