What exactly is food intolerance?
Understanding of the complex way in which food affects our everyday life is still in the development phase. Diagnosing a reason for different symptoms, which appears to be “unexplainable” is usually difficult.
Health professionals and the media often try to convince people who show some of the symptoms of food intolerance that their condition is the result of tensions associated with the improper functioning of the mind, and thus rather psychological consequences of their disease than the real ones are treated.
That’s why we want to help looking for answers to the questions related to food intolerances and explain the benefits of performing the Food Detective test, if your body shows any signs that may be related to it.
One shouldn’t underestimate the danger, which is intolerance. Even if it doesn’t pose a direct threat to life, it can significantly affect the ability to lead a normal and healthy lifestyle.
Cases of food intolerance happen very often. It is estimated that approx. 45% of the population may be affected by it. Many people often show more than one symptom of the disease. Symptoms tend to be weak, and a reason for them, that is food, isn’t always properly recognized. Patients often complain of constant “confusion”, fatigue, uncertainty and swelling.
Essentially food intolerance is your body’s inappropriate response to certain foods, which in itself can manifest in many ways. Some will have only one symptom, e.g. acute headaches, while others will manifest it through hypersensitive intestinal syndrome, migraines, skin problems and inefficiency of the respiratory system.
It’s not so easy to realize that your food is a catalyst for the occurrence of certain symptoms, since symptoms of food intolerance can occur several hours or even several days later after the consumption.
It’s completely different with food allergy, when the symptoms are often visible immediately. The statements of many patients who were diagnosed and got rid of many of the symptoms associated with digestive problems suggest these patients realized that throughout their whole life they experienced minor symptoms indicating food intolerance.
