Adult Allergies

What Causes Allergies?

Allergies can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose allergies, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "allergies" as a symptom.  Here are eight possibilities:
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Indoor Allergies
  • Lymphatic Congestion
  • Endometriosis
  • Vasectomy Side-Effects
  • Increased Intestinal Permeability
  • Immune System Imbalance

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
frequent swollen cervical nodes
regular infections
weak appetite
difficulty falling asleep
low diastolic blood pressure
frequent runny nose
fatigue after slight exertion
coffee consumption
significant bowel movement changes
regularly feeling unusually cold
partial vegetarian diet
... and more than 120 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of allergies:
Cause Probability Status
Dehydration 92% Confirm
Increased Intestinal Permeability 21% Unlikely
Adrenal Fatigue 17% Unlikely
Lymphatic Congestion 1% Ruled out
Vasectomy Side-Effects 1% Ruled out
Endometriosis 1% Ruled out
Indoor Allergies 0% Ruled out
Immune System Imbalance 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate suffering allergic/other reactions, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Do you have a history of allergies as an adult?
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No
→ Minor (1 or 2 mild allergies)
→ Moderate (several/frequent allergies)
→ Major (allergies have been a serious issue for me)
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either no history of adult allergies or history of adult allergies, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
