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
  • Endometriosis
  • Vasectomy Side-Effects
  • Immune System Imbalance
  • Indoor Allergies
  • Increased Intestinal Permeability
  • Lymphatic Congestion

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:
brittle fingernails
poor tolerance of heat
severe vision disturbances
regular infections
allergies in family members
chronic thyroiditis
craving for salt
joint pain/swelling/stiffness
history of adolescent acne
history of hyperthyroidism
minor joint pain/swelling/stiffness
being highly lethargic
... 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 14% Unlikely
Lymphatic Congestion 13% Unlikely
Endometriosis 4% Ruled out
Indoor Allergies 1% Ruled out
Vasectomy Side-Effects 0% Ruled out
Immune System Imbalance 0% Ruled out
Adrenal Fatigue 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:
