Adverse reactions to foods may be a source of considerable discomfort to patients. The term food sensitivity refers to a condition where an individual reacts to an ingested food as though it were a toxin. Foods that are normally considered healthy to most human immune systems, are considered a threat to those individuals with food intolerances.
Symptoms vary considerably and patients can respond in different ways to different foods. Many people live with minor or major symptoms of adverse food reactions for years without ever suspecting the involvement of the immune system and the foods that trigger it.
Many individuals report improved weight control, more vitality and altogether a better quality of life, following implementation of dietary changes based on detection of food sensitivities and repairing leaky gut.
Exposure to foods within the same family may also evoke a sensitivity and should also be eliminated. For example, sensitivity to grapefruit may increase the likelihood of a sensitivity to orange, or lemon (other members of the citrus family).
Sensitivities may also be hidden in other foods. For example, sensitivity to eggs, should equate to caution in eating other foods that contain eggs, such as mayonnaise.
Symptoms to food sensitivities may include:
- Breathing difficulties
- Constipation and diarrhoea
- Fatigue & lethargy
- Fluid retention
- Gastric ulcers
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
