The above is a list of some common symptoms
connected with food intolerance and or environmental sensitivity.
Food intolerances can make
you feel really ill. We often crave those foods for which we are intolerant,
therefore if you eat the same foods everyday you may create sensitivities for
yourself. Generally the foods that
we crave or are intolerant to are the ones that cause us to gain weight, or
suffer from digestive disorders, imbalances and a host of other ailments.
What causes food intolerance?
Food intolerance happens when the body is unable to digest a particular type of food. Usually this happens because there is an absence of specific enzymes or chemicals which are needed to digest a food substance or due to the body's responses to certain food constituents (chemicals) both natural or artificial.
Over the years the
average UK diet has changed significantly, with a higher proportion of refined
carbohydrates, food additives and processed foods now included. Many people have
a number of symptoms that could be related to food intolerances and allergies.
Lactose intolerance is one of the most common
types of food intolerance. Lactose is a sugar found in cow’s milk. When
someone is lactose intolerant it means they have a shortage of the enzyme
lactase which is used to break down lactose and therefore the milk isn’t
broken down completely into forms which can be absorbed in the blood stream.
The symptoms of lactose intolerance are very similar to irritable bowel
