We have the ability to develop food intolerances over the years. Food intolerances are the body’s inability to digest or process certain foods or chemicals within certain foods. This is different from a food allergy which causes an immune system reaction.
Intolerances create symptoms such as bloating, indigestion, flatulence, stomach pain, or diarrhoea.
Allergies create symptoms that are more acute and can be quite severe in the most severe cases can cause death. The reactions range from rashes, difficulty in breathing, swollen eyes and lips, runny nose, headaches or debilitating migraines.
Most immune/intolerances usually develop in a reaction to acidic foods such as tomatoes, sugar, dairy products, wheat, shellfish, nuts, chocolate and coffee. You can also develop mild intolerances such as an intolerance to a protein in milk while having no reaction to eating butter and cheese. People can even develop intolerances to certain fruit from certain countries.
Usually people can endure food intolerances and will feel okay most of the time with mild symptoms. However if not heeded intolerances can turn into full blown allergies if the body is constantly bombarded with these acidic foods.
It is well worth it to be aware of these foods and either avoid them or don’t consume them in large quantities. There are other alternative options out there to help you rid the acidity of the body such as traditional Chinese or Tibetan medicine. There is also BodyTalk which can reprogram the body and the intolerance reaction.
