Definition Of Allergy

Posted by: | Comments (0)

My Definition Of An AllergyThere seems to be some confusion about the definition of allergy. This dates back to 1925 when opinions in the medical world split and two camps were formed. I would like to try to clear this confusion by explaining a simplified medical definition, my allergy definition and the definition of others who I respect working in the allergy field.

Medical Allergy Definition

The medical profession tends to define an allergy as causing the activation of immunoglobulin type E(IgE) antibodies. However millions of people experience many allergic symptoms every day without producing these antibodies. The medical profession would call these sensitivities, hypersensitivities and intolerances, not allergies.

Some Alternative Allergy Definitions

Dr Devi Nambudripad, who developed NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) states that, “An allergy is an adverse physical, physiological, and/or psychological response of an individual towards one or more substances also known as allergens”.
