So many people suffer from chronic health issues and are unaware that the food they are consuming is causing a negative reaction in their body. When a person has a food sensitivity that they are unaware of the inflammatory response can cause migraines, IBS symptoms or even acne.
Food sensitivities differ from food allergies. A food allergy can cause anaphylaxis whereas a food sensitivity triggers an inflammatory response causing a range of symptoms.
The most common symptoms of food sensitivities are:
- Gastrointestinal discomfort
- Stomach pain
- Excess gas
- Acid reflux/heartburn
- Skin flushing
- Irritability or anxiety
If these symptoms sound all too familiar to you and you’re ready to take action to start feeling better we can help!
