Allergies and Intolerances

Description: 

It is common to develop allergies and intolerances to the foods you love and eat on a daily basis. Symptoms can be slow to develop and can take hours or days to appear making it much harder to identify the trigger. Food intolerance is not to be confused with food allergy which can cause severe symptoms like constricted airways and grossly swollen eyes - think peanuts and anaphylactic shock. Such cases need urgent professional assessment and treatment.

Symptoms: 

Digestive problems, bloating, fluid retention, excess mucus in nose, throat and sinuses, frequent urination, mouth ulcers, fatigue, depression, muscle pains.

Additional Symptoms: 

Depression, Fatigue.

Possible Causes: 

An allergic reaction or an intolerance may be caused by something in your genes, your diet or your environment. Wheat and dairy are the most common food intolerances, but almost any food can trigger a reaction. The problem is food intolerances produce an array of symptoms that could easily be attributed to other causes. Food Intolerances change finding out you are intolerant to a certain food does not mean avoidance for the rest of your life. It would be necessary to eliminate the food/s for a period of time and specifically working on healing the lining of the gut and then slowly re-introducing the offending food/s.
