Could Food Intolerances Be Part Of Your Health Problems?
Find Out If You Have IgG Antibody Reactions To Foods
Just send a few drops of blood to a leading European laboratory and you will get your results by email so you can start to take control of your own health.
Over two thousand years ago the Chinese observed that some people responded badly to certain foods causing deterioration in physical and mental health. As the quality of the food we eat has deteriorated and the influence of “convenience” processed foods, fast foods and eating on-the-run has grown, the strain on our bodies’ digestive system has increased dramatically. The effects of making poor choices in our nutrition is demonstrated almost every night on popular television through programmes such as “You Are What You Eat” and “The Diet Doctors”. While less than 2% of the population suffers from classical food allergies, some researchers estimate that up to 80% of the population can suffer from food intolerances. They can affect anyone at any age, but since symptoms often occur some time after the food has been eaten, it can be difficult to find the problem food without being tested for intolerances. For example, the milk or bread eaten on one day could be the cause of joint pain three days later.
Some food intolerances are caused by an enzyme deficiency or chemical sensitivity, while others are an immune response caused by food specific IgG antibodies. Frequent early symptoms of food intolerances: • Tiredness and Fatigue • Headaches • Weight Problems • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) • Depression • Skin Problems • Bloating • Sinus Problems • Insomnia The good news is that not all intolerances are permanent. The beneficial results of a directed elimination diet plan, nutritional or herbal remedies to strengthen your digestive function and eliminatory organs, mean many foods can be safely and comfortably reintroduced to your diet at a later date.
