Your Calgary Choice for Nutritional and Dietary Guidance to Deal with Food Intolerances & Allergies

Food Intolerances and Allergies | Rory Hornstein | Registered Dietitian | Calgary and Surrounding Areas

Many people have food intolerances, or allergies to specific foods or food groups, which means that their body’s immune system reacts to a substance in a food, usually a protein, that the body sees as harmful. This sets off a chain reaction within the body, which results in symptoms ranging from mild (runny nose or itchy eyes), to severe or even life threatening. Food intolerances are different from an allergy, in that the symptoms can be unpleasant, including abdominal cramping or diarrhea, but they are not life-threatening.

Those who suffer from food allergies or food intolerances can greatly benefit from the help of a Registered Dietitian. A Registered Dietitian can help filter through any confusion you may have regarding what foods and beverages are safe to eat or drink, as well as direct you how to best avoid the foods and beverages that may cause a reaction, as well as direct you to a health professional for an accurate diagnosis. Your Registered Dietitian can also help you learn more about the ingredients in food and can guide you on how to further read the ingredient list on labels. You will come up with a meal plan, and suggestions for meals, including which ingredients to use.
