What is Food Intolerance?

What is Food Intolerance? 

A food "intolerant" reaction also occurs when the body "reacts" to the ingestion of a food. This reaction however may or may not involve the immune system, and may be caused by a food protein, a starch or sugar molecule, other food component, or by a contaminant found in the food (e.g. food coloring, preservative etc).
So what can cause food sensitivity?
Food sensitivity could be re-named “poor digestion", as reactions to food are often the result of poor or compromised digestion!
Underlying digestive problems e.g. low stomach acidity, gut bacterial overgrowth, a "leaky" or damaged gut lining are common "causes" of food sensitivity and must be addressed in order to correct the reactivity. All of which is originally caused by the food we are eating and how we are eating.
Identifying Reactive Foods is now made easier with Bio-Compatibility testing by hair analysis.
A small hair sample is taken and sent to the lab for testing. Results are usually returned in 5 to 7 days.
Treatment
Treatment begins by eliminating reactive foods which will generally settle down the disturbing gastro-intestinal symptoms quite dramatically. A new diet of “safe” foods is prescribed and steps may be taken to improve overall digestive function.
