16: Food Sensitivities & Leaky Gut

Have you ever noticed that every time you eat a certain food you get symptoms? If so you may be suffering from food Sensitivities. Recent research showed 1 in 5 Australians suffer from one or more food sensitivities and that sensitivities, as apposed to true allergies, can take up to 7 days to cause a reaction, which can make it tricky to accurately identify which foods are causing your symptoms.

Food sensitivities can cause a wide range of problems including gut symptoms of bloating, pain, diarrhea or constipation as well as skin conditions - eczema, dermatitis, rashes, acne and fatigue, headaches, mood changes, lowered concentration, forgetfulness, brain fog, inflammation, muscle and joint pain and much more!

In this episode Angela covers what causes food intolerances, how we can test for and treat them effectively to improve our health and quality of life.

Angela explores the link between leaky gut and food intolerances, how the immune begins to react to cause the symptoms we experience, how we can use IgG pin prick blood tests to clearly identify the exact foods that we are reacting too and her program for removing those trigger foods and healing the gut so we may be able to eventually reintroduce them into the diet without symptoms.

3 Take Away Keys

  1. Food sensitivities affect 1 in 5 Australians

  2. Food sensitivities (as apposed to true allergies) can take up to 7 days to produce symptoms

  3. To begin healing you need to identify the trigger foods through accurate testing (IgG blood testing), eliminate the trigger foods for 3 months or more while working on healing the gut and resolving leaky gut. Once this is done you can begin challenging the foods back into the diet one at a time.
