Do You Have a Food Sensitivity & Not Know It?

Has it ever occurred to you that fatigue, weight gain, abdominal discomfort, headaches and aging skin could be due to food sensitivity?

Eating the same food every day increases your risk of developing an immune reaction, which raises inflammation and might be the underlying cause of some of your symptoms. The problem is, you may not know which foods are causing you to feel this way.

Just to be clear, the difference between a food allergy and food sensitivity can be confusing. A food allergy is a dangerous immune reaction involving the immunoglobulin (IgE) antibody to a particular food. An example of this is a peanut allergy.

A food sensitivity is completely different. Even though it is also an immune reaction, a food sensitivity is an unpleasant reaction to certain foods. This reaction can cause you to develop acid reflux, nausea or abdominal cramps.

If you've gone to several physicians and they are either prescribing anti-inflammatory medicines or telling you it might be in your head, it's time to take matters into your own hands.

What can you do?

Consciously think about the foods you're eating, especially foods you're eating every day. You need to look at your Immunoglobulin G (IGG levels), which is related to food sensitivities.

Dr. Mike shares the differences between food allergies and food sensitivities, symptoms of food sensitivities and tests you can take to determine food allergies and food sensitivities.

For more information, you can go to Life Extension to research some at-home allergy tests.
