Food Sensitivities and Intolerances
Did you know that your unique body reaction to food be causing symptoms such as:
- Diarrhea or Constipation
- Gas, bloating
- Migraine headaches
- Eczema, Acne, other skin conditions
- Chronic fatigue and brain fog
- Inability to lose weight
- Decreased sports performance
Reactions to food, either sensitivities or intolerances can cause a variety of different symptoms and can be the underlying cause of many health issues. These are different to food allergies, but can cause just as detrimental health consequences.
How can you determine what foods your body is reacting to? Well there are several methods we can use, some take more time and guess work than others. First of all we can eliminate all “common” allergens for 6-8 weeks and then start a rotational diet to re-introduce foods to watch for reactions. This will take time, and there is no guarantee that the foods we eliminated are in-fact the culprits, hence the guess work.
The other method is a blood panel to test for the level of immune system reaction in the unique blood of the patient and therefore we can determine confidently which foods you are reacting to. We then eliminate those foods from the diet which are causing the damage and unwanted symptoms, all while we work on repairing the GI and immune systems to help the patient achieve a more optimal level of health and wellness.
