Did you know that unidentified food sensitivities and allergies may be affecting your health? Food sensitivities can wreak havoc on the body. Unfortunately, because these food sensitivities are less obvious than full-blown food allergies, they often go undetected and untreated. A person may feel ill or experience a rash or fever after eating a specific food, but may attribute the symptoms to being sick or other non-food related factors. In turn, the person may continue to eat the food and experience symptoms that are really food reaction or food sensitivity.
Food sensitivities can present themselves in many unsuspected symptoms. Because food sensitivities are less obvious than full-blown food allergies, they often go undetected and untreated.
- Are you experiencing bloating, abdominal discomfort or irritable bowel?
- Are you tired, anxious, irritable or having trouble losing weight?
