Do I suffer from intolerances?

Steps to stopping discomforting symptoms

Particular foods may be the cause of your digestive problems such as bloating, stomach cramps, constipation, headaches or itching skin.

Many people who suffer with intolerances will often have an item in their regular diet that is causing the symptoms without them knowing for a long period of time. It is quite often the case that individuals may blame a food or product when it is actually another or a single item in the product that is causing the intolerance reaction.

Many of the common trigger foods for intolerances are such because they are over consumed in the diet. Dairy, meats and wheat are all items in western diets that are over-processed, over consumed and regularly appear as intolerances.

There are obvious ways to determine “do I suffer with intolerances?” by simply performing an at-home elimination diet. Taking out suspected foods and reintroducing them at stages and then looking at the ingredients of processed foods and understanding if a trigger item is in those products.

Alternatively, an intolerance test can give you a faster analysis of how your body reacts to common items and speed up your elimination diet process.

When considering removing items from your diet you should be careful to ensure you are not removing important food groups.
