It is known that food can cause many different types of reactions in the body. These may be evident in the skin (such as hives, rashes, itchiness, or swellings); the gut (such as reflux, vomiting, tummy pains, diarrhea, and constipation); when breathing (such as shortness of breath or a tight chest) or through generally feeling unwell. Some people put up with symptoms for years, which could get better if the foods causing these symptoms were cut out of the diet.

Finding out which foods are causing your symptoms can be straightforward when identified properly by an expert. Identifying the food trigger or triggers and a sensible management plan can allow life to be very different for the intolerance sufferer.

Solutions in the Gut for Food Sensitivities & Intolerances – Gut-Brain Function

Food sensitivities and intolerances occur when certain foods particles enter your bloodstream and are treated as foreign substances by your body. This results in your immune system producing tailor-made antibodies which attack the food in question. This reaction by the body is what creates negative symptoms such as skin conditions, tummy issues, nausea, diarrhea, and breathing issues. Food Sensitivity & Intolerance Testing is available as a dried blood spot collection which is an easy finger prick for patients and only takes a minute during an office visit.
