Am I Allergic?
Indianapolis, IN - USA
More than 55% of Americans have tested positive for one or more allergies and 1 in 5 Americans suffer from some sort of allergic complications. You would think finding out what you're allergic to would be as simple as visiting your General Practioner but the reality is far more complicated than that.
There are many reasons for this but the biggest one is that allergy tests are very sensitive and give off many false positives. Tests may show you are allergic to many foods and the natural action to take is to eliminate these from your diet.
Evidence shows this behavior is in many cases an over-reaction and most if not all of these suspect foods do not actually need to be removed from your diet.
AmIAllergic.org seeks to provide a comprehensive (and FUN!) Q&A to determine the likelihood you may have a food related allergy and provide you with the tools to find recipes that will help you narrow down which ingredients may be the most likely culprits.
This way you can start to take control of your health in a non-invasive and more logical way than other solutions currently available.
To your health!
