Food Intolerance

Food intolerances could be the cause of your health issues

Understand more about your body and how it reacts to the food you consume

Is your body reacting in a certain way to certain food items? You may have a food intolerance, but don’t worry, we are here to tell you what it means.

Intolerances are a pain and are a lot more common in our lives than you think. Do not dismiss the idea that you may have an intolerance just because you ate a meal two days ago and are now seeing a reaction, it could still be the culprit!

A common occurrence seen around the world is that we easily dismiss certain symptoms and blame something else. Sub-consciously, we may do this because we want to keep our favourite food in our lives, but it is important we are able to rule it out as an offending food item.

You may not even realise you have a food intolerance until up to 48 hours after you’ve eaten it. However, things get even more complicated when you learn that the same food can have different effects on two different people. This highlights that intolerances are not always easy to catch, but it is important that we do so.

Depending on the nature of your body, people are able to tolerate a certain amount of food, even if they do have an intolerance to it. There is a drawback though, if you eat too much of the offending food, you will get symptoms. This is when it becomes even more important to make sure we catch them, as these intolerances can make your symptoms even worse, and in a worst-case scenario, they can trigger the onset of a chronic illness.

Having detected what foods you may have an intolerance to, we suggest removing the particular food item from your diet, before reintegrating it when over a month has passed. This gives your body time to recover and also clarifying you definitely have an intolerance to this item.

It is important to note, however, that you slowly bring the food back into your diet, as it is vital you recognise what your body can tolerate and what it cannot. If you measure what you are putting into your body, then you are able to assess how much of each food you can have.

Upon receiving your results, we believe it to be essential that you understand them. Gaining an understanding of your results will also help you know your body, and this is integral to a happy and healthy lifestyle moving forwards. When talking to our in-house nutritionist about your results, you are already on the first step to recapturing control of your body.

Putting you at the forefront of our mind, our nutritionist can help you ensure that your body is still getting all the nutrients it requires. Even if you find you have a particular intolerance to a food that you love, there are always alternative sources should you need to fully eliminate this food item from your diet.
