Food Sensitivities (even with healthy food) – How to bring a DAMAGED system back to health:
According to The Mayo Clinic website, the most common food allergy signs and symptoms include:
•Tingling or itching in the mouth
•Hives, itching or eczema
•Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat or other parts of the body
•Wheezing, nasal congestion or trouble breathing
•Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
•Dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting
When it comes to food sensitivities, I have been there, done that with that. My symptoms were belly bloating, a severe, hive-like rash and general lethargy.
Removing and identifying the culprit needs to be done asap. The most common foods related to food sensitivities are dairy products (especially pasturized, including casein and whey), soy, nightshade veggies (tomatoes, white potatoes, bell pepper, eggplant), gluten (the protein found in wheat, barley and rye), and legumes (beans and peanuts). Following this is a second-tier list that includes eggs, corn, dyes, tree nuts, citrus, and strawberries.
To identify what foods may be causing an issue for your body try the good old-fashioned elimination diet. This is where you remove one or several foods for a period of time — typically four to six weeks. Consume PROBIOTIC FOODS or take a probiotic supplement to aid the digestive enzymes and gut supportive nutrients during this time as well as get adequate sleep and mental rest. This will give the digestive system a break, rejuvenating it.
I guarantee that your body will let you know — and through your symptoms you will see what needs to be avoided for a short period of time or longer.
For invigorating health, it isn’t just about eliminating sugar, but bringing a damaged system back to balance.
