Allergy and Asthma

Bad Reaction

In the U.S., food allergy symptoms send someone to the emergency room every three minutes.  A food allergy results when the immune system mistakenly targets a food protein (or an allergen) as a threat and attacks it.

Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Nurse Practitioner at Allergy Sinus & Asthma Family Health Center explains how they can help detect the foods you might be allergic to.

Is It A Cold?

Despite its name, the cold can happen anytime time of year. A cold is a virus. And according to the Mayo Clinic there are more than 100 types of cold viruses. Allergies share many of the same symptoms as colds and start acting up when your immune system has an adverse reaction to certain triggers. Here in Florida, those triggers may be present year round, thanks to our moderate climate.
