Do you think you are suffering from hidden Food Allergies?
Did you know that 50-70% of our immune system is in our digestive system? This explains why we need to be cautious about food allergies.
With the rise of packaged foods and greater contamination in the food manufacturing industry, food allergies are increasingly becoming a problem.
One of the major issues with a food allergy is that it often goes unnoticed. Many people do not realize that they might be suffering from one.
Since the symptoms of allergies are not limited to just digestive problems, it is often difficult to find out if one has a food allergy.
What happens if you’re allergic to something?
Apart from common problems like rashes, skin problems or digestive problems, many people also experience inflammation, which could cause major health issues like irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune disorders, depression, fibromyalgia, etc.
On a long term basis, these problems could cause a lot of harm to our bodies and end up damaging our liver, gastrointestinal tract, heart, etc.
How to identify a food allergy?
If you think you might be suffering from an allergy, get tested. There are many institutions that offer food allergy testing. Some of the most common allergy causing foods are gluten, milk, meat, peanuts, soya, eggplants (brinjal), etc.
On your way to good health
Once you understand what foods you are allergic to, remove them from your diet. With the growing awareness of food problems, there are varied options available – gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, paleo, etc.
Choose the right diet and make a speedy recovery on your way to good health.
