There is another area which overlaps allergies and that is the area of sensitivities. Sensitivities are generally divided into food sensitivities and chemical sensitivities.
Because the symptoms are so much the same as allergies it can be
confusing. Generally, an allergy is an immune system response to an
allergen and is a type of sensitivity while a sensitivity includes
allergies but is also the body's toxic response to a substance which
does not involve the immune system.
