Food intolerances

Do you or your child suffer any of these after eating foods?

An estimated 45% of us suffer from a food intolerance or sensitivity*, an anti-body response to proteins in food. Frustratingly, symptoms related to food intolerance can take up to 72 hours to appear so are tricky to identify. Plus, people are often intolerant to more than one food, making it dispiriting when symptoms don’t resolve after foods are eliminated.

Also, just removing foods won’t fix the problem. Think of it like this: if you puncture your bike tyre (the barriers in your gut) with a nail (a specific food), then removing the nail won’t fix the tyre… you need to fix the puncture, i.e. heal the gut and restore optimal digestive health.

Unfortunately, intolerances tend to be from the most commonly used foods in food manufacturing, as the gut is repeatedly exposed to and damaged, without time to repair:

  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Corn (maize)
  • Soy
  • Eggs

Why are intolerance levels so high?

Why are intolerance levels so high? The crazy world of the 21st century bombards us constantly with pollution and chemicals – think pesticides, household cleaning, beauty products and plastics, yet is unsupported with reduced vegetable/fruit intake, vitamin D levels and germ exposure (yes, you do need some germs in your life!) plus high stress, all of these stressors affect your body and in turn how it reacts to foods.

Food also isn’t what it says it is. An awareness of food manufacturing and labelling will help you to understand what could be in your food. E.g. neither gluten used as a dry agent in instant coffee nor chemicals used in processing foods have to be included on the label.

I will investigate the underlying causes and contributing factors to your food intolerance(s) to help heal your gut and restore optimal digestive health.
