Many people have food sensitivities and don’t know it. These sensitivities underly severe
conditions and mild ones. People may think of allergic reactions like anaphylaxis, diarrhea, bloating,
tongue and throat swelling, or vomiting; but often reactions do not appear until 72 hours later!
Usually, the day to day mild to moderate symptoms we experience are reactions to the food we eat and once these foods are removed magic happens. Individuals commonly see a great leap in energy levels and mental clarity within two to four weeks after removing their offending foods. They sleep more soundly, handle stress better, lose weight, gain muscle, their workouts improve, chronic pain is relieved, and their fatigue, bad moods and depression are gone. Sounds pretty awesome right?!
Figuring out what foods work best for you will also help balance your hormones. Many hormones are made into their active form in the gut, so it makes sense that eating according to your biochemistry would alleviate these issues as well. This will not only improve how you feel from day to day, it will improve your quality of life and health in all aspects for the long haul.
