Description: Bodies of people with allergies produce antibodies against common environmental substances that create allergy symptoms. The antibodies produce histamine which causes an allergic response. Although the reaction is based on a healthy bodily function designed to protect us from toxins in the environment, many allergies cause extreme suffering. When the body experiences sensitivity or an allergy to a substance it produces antibodies that are specific to the allergen, called Immunoglobulin E (IgE) which can be measured in the blood.
