Food Allergies

A child with a food allergy has symptoms from an immune system reaction after eating or touching a particular food. The allergic reaction usually happens within 5 minutes to 1 hour.

The most common foods children are allergic to are:

  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Wheat
  • Soy
  • Peanuts
  • Tree Nuts
  • Fish
  • Shellfish

Food allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe and rarely death.

  • Hives 
  • Itchy, watery, or swollen eyes
  • Runny nose or sneezing
  • Throat swelling
  • Uncontrollable coughing
  • Wheezing or trouble breathing
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Feeling dizzy or passing out
  • Death

Food allergies are diagnosed with skin prick testing or blood testing.

Conventional treatment for food allergies usually includes medications and avoiding allergic foods.

“I suspected my son’s skin issues were from food allergies. Dr. Sue ran specific testing, and we followed her easy to implement health plan. It was like a lightbulb went off in my child! His skin began to clear, his stools normalized, and he became a happy kiddo. We’re so grateful!” – Karrie Rea


“Seeing my son react to unknown food allergies was scary. I felt helpless, weary, and overwhelmed. Dr. Sue encouraged me as a nursing mother to eliminate certain foods, and her health plan gave our son the support his body needed. We were able to find the problem and the solution at the same time. What a relief! Now I have a happy baby who sleeps through the night!” – Rebekah Huntsman
