Have you almost given up hope that you can figure out what is wrong? Nobody is listening to you or they think that you are making it up! You are at your wits end! Sometimes you react to certain foods and other times you don’t – so you don’t know what to eat! In this situation it is not unusual to end up with a very limited diet, trying to avoid the foods you think may be causing you a problem!
It is very likely that you have one or more food sensitivities. Most of us have heard of sensitivities to wheat or dairy – you can actually develop sensitivities to any food.
Even if your doctor has already tested and told you that your tests for lactose and gluten are negative, you could still be gluten or dairy sensitive or have other food sensitivities.
Some people experience constipation, others experience diarrhoea and some people find themselves regularly vomiting. Regular cramping pain is common, so is fatigue. Sometimes you can have all of these symptoms. Weight loss or weight gain can occur.
It is important to note that you may not have any digestive symptoms at all, some common symptoms are skin conditions, mood changes, anxiety, headaches, fogginess and feeling sleepy.
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
Did you know that your food can be causing you to gain weight or stopping you from losing weight, even if you have a healthy diet and you are not overeating? We’re all individuals, so what is a healthy diet for one person may make someone else sick.
You might often feel tired, or moody after a meal but not 100% sure what the culprit is. You may have even developed problems with your thyroid! As you can see, some people have very severe symptoms; others have very vague symptoms, maybe just a bit of fatigue or foggy brain. In some people it leads to severe depression or anxiety.
Some people have food sensitivities without any obvious signs or symptoms.
It is possible to have gluten sensitivity with no digestive systems and no damage to the intestine. “Gluten is a silent germ, it can inflict lasting damage without you knowing it” Dr David Perlmutter, Neurologist
