Food Sensitivity. Understand more about your body.
To make things even more confusing, two people may be sensitive to the same food but experience different symptoms. People can usually tolerate a reasonable amount of the food that they are sensitive to, but if they eat too much they will get symptoms because their body cannot tolerate certain amounts. Food sensitivities can even trigger the onset of a chronic illness or make symptoms worse which is why it is important to get tested.
After identifying the foods that you are sensitive to, it is important to eliminate these foods from your diet for at least a month before you start introducing it back into your diet. We would advise that you slowly re-introduce the culprit food back into your diet so that you can gauge how much of the food your body can tolerate before the symptoms kick in.
Once you receive your results, you can seek advice from our in-house nutritionist who will help you take the next step in taking back control of your health and diet. They can help you ensure your body is still getting all the nutrients it needs through alternative sources if you do need to eliminate a certain food or food group from your diet.
