If you suffer from chronic constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, headaches, acne, eczema, psoriasis, anxiety (really, the list could go on and on), you may have an underlying food sensitivity. Most people know if they are allergic to a food, such as peanuts or shellfish. But food sensitivities often get missed.
Common symptoms of food sensitivities are:
Nasal congestion Puffy Eyes Gas, Bloating
Frequent Colds Mental Fogginess Mood Changes
Headaches, Migraines Joint Pain, Arthritis Diarrhea or Constipation
Testing for Food Sensitivities:
The best way to find out if you have food sensitivities is to have your blood tested.
Your immune system responds to food you are sensitive to by creating antibodies against that food. These antibodies are measurable in your blood and can be key in determining your food sensitivities. At Lakeside Natural Medicine, we offer a test to assess for food sensitivities to 96 general foods.
Identifying food sensitivities is one of the first steps to healing the gut.
