What makes me different?

Do you suffer from food allergies?

After you eat do you feel bloated, gassy, tired, lethargic, get headaches, have constipation or diarrhea, changes in mood, rashes, pain, or anxiety?

It is very possible you my have a allergy or sensitivity to the foods you are eating. I myself have food I am allergic to: wheat (celiac disease) , dairy, soy, and eggs. This picture (left) was taken the morning I was cross contaminated, and (right) 24h later. Even though it can take up to a week for the bloat to completely go away.

A allergy is a inappropriate response by the body’s immune system. Substances that provoke allergy responses are called allergens. Emotional factors such as stress and anger May aggravate allergies, especially if the immune system is not functioning properly.

Allergies can also be inherited from your parents, it is statistically likely that 1 in 3 children will have allergies if one parent does. If both parents have allergies the chances that turned children will have them also raises the 7 in 10. Some of the most common allergic foods are wheat, milk, eggs, corn, shellfish, soy, nuts, chocolate, Ect.

A person with food intolerance is unable to digest and process food correctly, usually due to the lack of a certain enzyme or enzymes. A food allergy occurs when a person’s immune system generates an antibody response to the ingested food.

Currently the only way to deal with food allergies is to avoid foods that trigger reactions. If you suspect a food allergy you can try an elimination diet. Removing all food of suspected allergy from your diet for 2 weeks, and then reintroducing each food one at a time per week. If you find your symptoms are returning then you know that food causes of an allergic reaction.

If you need help with an Elimination diet or how to adapt to a new lifestyle with an allergy or sensitivity, feel free to contact me.

Did you know your gut is your “second brain”? And it is one of the first things I address with clients when starting a program.
Your digestive system is a critical component of your health because it is where absorption of nutrients and the process of elimination takes places. If you can’t absorb the nutrients you consume then you are at a high risk for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies which can cause a whole host of health problems.
When the body doesn’t properly eliminate waste and toxins, healing simply is impossible.
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that are normally present in the digestive tract. They are important for digestion and other useful functions such as preventing yeast and pathogen overgrowth, and synthesizing vitamin K. The most common probiotics are acidophuilus and bifidobacteria. Cultured or fermented foods also contain various types and amounts of beneficial bacteria.
Example of foods are: kefir, miso, sauerkraut, tempeh, umeboshi, yogurt, and cheese.
