Food Intolerances

Poorly Diagnosed, Therefore Mistreated

Because symptoms of food intolerance frequently present themselves very similar to other diseases, they’re often misdiagnosed. And many people have more than one food intolerance, further complicating the diagnoses.

Your body’s reaction to foods can take place up to 48 hours after eating, so it’s difficult to connect the effect to the cause. This may lead to mistreating the symptoms with over-the-counter medications, rather than finding the cause.

Symptoms of Food Intolerance

Symptoms Supplements For Relief
Gastrointestinal (stomach and intestines) Probiotics, Enzymes, Minerals
Respiratory (lungs and breathing) Crystal Salt, Brine Steam Inhalation
Dermatological (skin problems and diseases) Skin: Supplements, Skin: Repair
Neurological (pain, memory and moods) Amino Acids, Essential Fats
Musculoskeletal (muscle & bone disorders and pain) Joint Pain, Magnesium
Reproductive (genital and fertility issues) Nutrition, Cleansing, Liver Flush
Immune Responses (ability to fight infection) Immune Boosters

Serious Health Risks

Many symptoms of food intolerance are easily tolerated, such as itching skin, mild diarrhea, coughing, tiredness, mouth ulcers, stomach bloating, headache.

It is important to understand that if left untreated, food intolerance can seriously compromise your general health, and put you at an increased risk of many serious diseases like diabetes, cancer, dementia, obesity, arthritis & osteoporosis, anemia, Celiac Disease and Crohn’s Disease.

Easily Remedied

When properly managed, diet changes can eliminate your suffering, and take you back to full health.
The offending food must first be identified with an elimination diet (see below).

Treatment of Food Intolerances

  1. Identify the Food
  2. Avoid the Food
  3. Revitalize Your Immune System

Identify the Offending Food, with The Elimination Diet

The elimination diet is quite simple, and should be supervised by your health care provider. It will last a few weeks, and involves removing specific foods (or ingredients) from your diet, that you and your health care provider suspect may be causing your symptoms.

Before making significant changes in your diet, always seek the advice of your health care provider.
If you randomly remove foods from your diet, you may not have a balanced diet and lack some nutrients, causing other health problems. A dietitian can help you plan meals that are healthy and nutritious, while eliminating the suspicious food source.

You will be required to keep a record of all the foods you eat, and any symptoms you experience. Carefully read food labels, and inquire about food preparation methods when dining out. This record will enable you and your health care provider to identify the food causing trouble.

Following the elimination diet and identification of the particular food that causes you grief, your health care provider will ask you to gradually reintroduce the eliminated foods, one at a time. This process helps link symptoms to specific foods.

This is not a foolproof method. Psychological and physical factors can affect the results. For example, if you think you’re sensitive to a food, a response could occur that may not represent food intolerance.

You will be successful in eliminating your symptoms.

You’ll have improved resistance to disease and renewed vitality.

The Prevalence of Food Intolerance

Food intolerance are responsible for unnecessary suffering in millions of people. Previously, it was thought to be rare, and now it’s quite prevalent.

Type of Food Intolerance Prevalence
Dairy Intolerance (Lactose intolerance) 75% (3 in 4 people )
Yeast Sensitivity (e.g.. Candida infections) 33% (1 in 3 people)
Gluten Intolerance (e.g.. Celiac and Wheat sensitivity) 15% (1 in 7 people)
Sugar Sensitivity 35% (1 in 3 people)
Food Allergies 1% (1 in 100 people)

If you are one of the 75% of people who are affected to some extent by food intolerance, it makes sense to investigate – doesn’t it?

Food Intolerance Worsens With Age

Food intolerance can turn up later in life. People are frequently surprised to discover they are lactose intolerant or sensitive to sugar or gluten, when they are 20, 30, 40 years or older.

Any symptom of ill-health that you may experience will worsen as you age. Unfortunately, another effect of leaving ill-health untreated is to exacerbate other conditions like heart disease, liver, kidney and lung dysfunction, amongst other things.

Hereditary Predisposition

Food intolerance tends to be inherited from your family. Celiac Disease (or Gluten sensitivity) occurs in 10% of all first degree relatives of Celiacs (that is siblings, parents & children).

Triggers of Food Intolerance

Serious stress, both good and bad (births & deaths, divorce, sickness, new career), can trigger food intolerance. The tendency was always there, and the body had been compensating. But high stress situations can easily allow the intolerance to appear.

Food intolerance is common, and may be difficult to diagnose. Symptoms of Food Intolerance are a signal from your body. Don’t ignore the signal.
