Don’t ignore your food intolerances
If you have many food intolerances then there are usually traceable reasons for it, particularly if they appear to be increasing year on year.
Many people make appointments to see me to be tested for food intolerances presenting with any combination of the following symptoms
· Skin rashes/excema/psoriasis/hives
· Abdominal pain
· Acid reflux
· Brain fog
Usually patterns emerge where reactions can become worse after certain foods.
The obvious ones are of course gluten foods, and dairy proteins, but many others.
It is very simple for me to test you for all foods that you might react to. I used to do this through a blood test but I can now do it in-house with the Bioresonance. I have over 100 ampoules for this so I can cover most foods.
In my opinion, if you are reacting to many foods and your symptoms are severe, it may be more important to see why you are reacting so badly rather than go straight in with food intolerance testing
As I have mentioned before, there are usually reasons for it.
So, before testing your intolerances, I may test a few things such as stomach acid (which I have referred to earlier) but more often than not I will want to test the integrity of your small intestine to determine whether you have a ‘leaky gut’ as referred to earlier in Pillar of Health 8.
Therefore the focus in my clinic is to sort out the gut problems first and then do the intolerance testing. This usually saves time and money in the long term.
