Your body wages war to combat the pathogens it comes into contact with day in, day out. It’s part of a modern life that contains plastics, pollution, and chemicals in household products and on our foods, pharmaceuticals, air conditioning, stress and the list goes on.
Human bodies do pretty well at coping with everything that’s thrown at them…until they don’t.
Being exposed to foods and allergens that put your body under stress, can cause the body to produce an immune response. Depending on your individual response, the severity can range from mild discomfort – feeling a little ‘off’ or itching to something more serious – significant pain, illness or anaphylaxis. All set off by an inflammatory response in your body.
Common treatable allergy & intolerance issues
- Swelling of the nasal passages is called sinusitis.
- IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is inflammation and ongoing irritation of the bowel
- Celiac disease causes irritation and inflammation of the gastro-intestinal tract and other immune system issues which stems from eating gluten
- Hives/eczema/psoriasis are skin inflammation conditions
Common allergy & intolerance culprits
Whilst there are some common allergy and intolerance culprits, every body is different, so none of these may apply to you.
- Wheat (and gluten)
- Food additives
- Nuts and legumes
Whilst you might suspect that you’re sensitive to a particular stressor, there may be other factors at play. The best way to assess your individual intolerance/allergy profile is to be tested as part of your initial health assessment.
