Eliminating Foods your body is Intolerant to can potentially improve your overall health. Here are a few things that can happened once you eliminate those offending foods!
A Settled Digestive System
Food Intolerances can cause a number of gastrointestinal symptoms, like nausea, bloating, acid reflux, heartburn, constipation, diarrhoea, and vomiting. Eliminating foods, you are intolerant/ sensitive to, can negate these symptoms. This is due to food not breaking down well and causing inflammation in your digestive system.
By identifying what foods you are intolerant to, we can potentially boost our metabolism. When we consume foods we are intolerant to, (even its just an apple or an orange), if they take a long time to digest this will have a negative impact on the metabolism and in turn slow it down. It then becomes very difficult to loose weight if your metabolism is on a go slow. Many people use food intolerance testing as a method of loosing weight and feeling great!
Food Intolerances can affect a person’s skin. Inflammation in the gut directly impacts the skin. Discovering and eliminating foods ones is intolerant to, can assist in clearing up acne, eczema, psoriasis, and skin rashes.
Mend Mental Health
Food Intolerance can chronically affect mental health, by causing fatigue, mood swings, depression, irritability and anxiety. Taking foods, you are intolerant to out of your diet can lead to better mental health.
Food intolerances can cause cold like symptoms, including nasal inflammation, itchy eyes, sneezing, wheezing and coughing.
Creating a diet without foods you are intolerant to can drastically increase your energy levels, as food sensitivities cause fatigue and sluggish metabolism!
Cutting the foods out of your diet you are intolerant to can eliminate sugar cravings, as your digestions works better overall. Also, your new and revised diet can lead to weight loss!
“ Most people go through life eating inflammatory foods that create many chronic diseases and health conditions, including low mood and energy. Food intolerances can be very destructive to the body. They cause more subtle health challenges that make someone feel uncomfortable without outward immune reaction. These reactions can take up to 3 days to develop therefore making it very difficult for you to identify the offending foods and connecting the symptoms. That is why we recommend testing!” Yvonne O’ Shaughnessy
Food Intolerances and weight management!
“Do you find it impossible to lose weight and keep it off despite your best efforts to diet? Does everyone around you seem to eat more than you – and yet somehow end up slimmer? Do you struggle to resist carbohydrate foods such as bread, cakes, chocolate, crisps and pasta? Do most of your excess pounds sit around your tummy? Do you feel tired for much of the time, irritable and unable to focus? Do you feel bloated and Sluggish?
If your answer was ‘Yes’ to any of the above, then having a food intolerance test done can be the start of a healthier and happier you
Yvonne explains: ‘Traditionally, weight loss programs have been built on the assumption that everyone’s metabolism works in the same way. And that if you monitor your calories, count fat grams, drink meal replacements, take dieting pills, or follow the diet sheet – whoever you are, you will lose weight. However, research has confirmed what many frustrated dieters have suspected for a long time: one size really does not fit all. ‘In fact, there is now concrete evidence that many of us struggle with weight gain and have difficulty losing excess pounds not because we are lazy or failed dieters, but because we have a metabolism that doesn’t quite match the textbook version.
Food intolerances slow down your weight loss ability as they cause the metabolism to slow down, this in turn reduces your ability to burn fat fast enough to lose weight.
Take the food intolerance test and start living a healthier, happier life!

How do Food Intolerances Develop?
Food intolerances begin when the digestive system is no longer able to break down food properly as it passes down the digestive tract. These undigested foods basically go off and putrefy within the intestines. Toxic gut bacteria feed off this undigested food. This creates a toxic gut environment. Bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea and general gut irritability is the result. Left untreated, these gut toxins begin to seep into the blood stream. There they trigger the immune system into over-response mode (autoimmunity) causing all manner of chronic inflammatory disease. These conditions include Anxiety, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Gastritis, Asthma, Headaches, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Skin problems, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Constipation, Bloating, Migraines, Sinus, Diarrhoea, Water retention and Weight gain.
