It feels horrible doesn’t it – bloating, abdominal pain, heartburn, erratic bowel motions, flatulence, mood swings, anxiety, nervousness, skin rashes. These are just some of the symptoms of food intolerances.
It can be difficult to live with, frustrating and at times embarrassing.
It can feel like a roller coaster ride – it seems that no matter what you eat, you are getting symptoms and no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to figure out what foods are causing your problems.
Allergies are far easier to work out because the reaction is quick and obvious. But with food intolerances, reactions can build up over a period of hours or even days.
I work initially through eliminating what I know are the most obvious culprits when it comes to food intolerances and if your symptoms aren’t resolved, then food intolerance testing can be the next step. While working on your diet, I will also work to heal your gut and if necessary work on your nervous system, because stress and anxiety are closely linked to digestive issues.
