Food sensitivities and food intolerances are such common concerns, most people believe they are intolerant / sensitive to at least one type of food. It’s important to note the difference between a food allergy and food sensitivity / intolerance.
Food allergy is involved with your immune system (IgE) raising histamine levels in the body and causing a wide variety of symptoms depending on the severity.
Food sensitivity / Food intolerance – mostly results in an inflammatory reaction in the gut. This may further cause bloating, general discomfort, diarrhea and loose stools. It can be accompanied by low energy, brain fog, headaches, asthma and lung conditions as well as skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. Inflammation is important to treat because once it starts in the gut, it can spread in the body. Hence why symptoms can be so broad, depending on the severity.
