What is Allergy?
Allergy is the body's abnormal response to some foreign substance. The body's immune system recognizes the presence of this foreign substance and starts a reaction to prevent their invasion. In most people, this is not a problem. However, in the person with allergies, the immune system is overactive and identifies normally harmless particles as dangerous, producing an excessive reaction.

Are allergies very common?
Yes.  It is estimated that more than 20% of the population suffer from Classical allergy symptoms but a significantly higher proportion suffer from Delayed or Food Intolerance. The numbers are increasing. Genetics are playing a part in the increase in allergies.

What is hay fever?
Scientifically it is called allergic rhinitis. The most common symptoms include sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, and itchy or watery eyes. It most frequently occurs during the spring or autumn when trees, grasses, and weeds are pollinating.
