Food Intolerance

A food intolerance is a genetic enzyme deficiency that prevents you from digesting certain foods. We all have foods that we are intolerant to which we inherited from our ancestors. Yes, that’s right. We ALL have food intolerances.

Some intolerances are even foods that we consider to be good for us. For example, some people are intolerant to fruit! Yes, that organic apple you ate for breakfast might be causing more harm than good. Or that sweet potato you ate last night. That might be good for your partner but not good for youThis is why we are so adamant about uncovering your intolerance!

Cause of Food Intolerance

Our food intolerance evaluation determines your inborn, genetic predisposition to digest particular foods or food groups. These results appear to be lifelong. Your food intolerance is typically unchanging and needs to be determined only once.

Symptoms of Food Intolerance

Although the symptoms of food intolerances may vary from one person to the next, there are several common GI symptoms, including:

  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating and gas
  • Abdominal pain
  • Upset stomach

However, we find that many chronic conditions result from someone eating their intolerances. When someone eats their intolerance, it leads to toxicity in the body which can impact every cell and organ in the body.
