Persistent skin problems, low mood, unexplained weight loss or poor attention span -- if any of these problems a ect your quality of life, intolerance to certain foods might be to blame.
What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance is di erent from allergies. An allergy sees the body trigger IgE antibodies immediately upon consuming a particular food. Allergies can cause serious symptoms, like di culty breathing, an itchy rash or swelling, even anaphylactic shock.
With a food intolerance, the body creates a di erent type of antibodies, namely IgG rather than IgE. These antibodies cause slower, more subtle reactions to the foodstu , with symptoms not appearing until two to three days after eating.
Food intolerance can be divided into two basic types. Food poisoning, a toxic reaction. The other type of intolerance is a non-toxic reaction. This occurs when the body has di culty digesting the nutrients, leading to abnormal symptoms in the gastrointestinal system.
Causes and symptoms
Along with hereditary conditions, there can be many causes of food intolerance. Symptoms can include an infirm gastrointestinal immune system, an ine cient digestive system, problems with absorption, and an imbalance of microorganisms in the intestine.
Symptoms of food tolerance are varied and can include:
- Nervous system diseases such as migraine and depression
- Respiratory system diseases such as asthma and sinusitis
- Muscular system diseases such as joint pain and muscle pain
- Gastrointestinal system diseases such as constipation and chronic diarrhea, unexpected weight loss
- Skin diseases such as rash, urticaria, and chronic inflammation acne
Diagnosing food intolerance
New technology for diagnosing intolerance can deliver thorough, fast and accurate results. The Food Intolerance Test requires a small sample of blood to check for IgG food-specific antibodies in a wide range of foods. The test can detect up to 221 substances in eight food groups including grains, meat, dairy products, fish/seafood, herbs/spices, fruits, nuts and vegetables
Test results can help you identify reactive foods and make changes to your eating patterns. By reducing, rotating or even cutting out the foods that cause intolerance symptoms, you can help to restore your body’s immune system to health.
