Food Intolerance Testing Brisbane
The way that the human body responds to food can be quite complicated. Food intolerances, sensitivities and allergies can mimic other diseases and cause those with food sensitivities a great deal of pain and suffering. Food sensitivities often include rashes, migraines, eczema, headaches, asthma, nausea, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome or other related issues. According to some estimates, about 45% of the population is affected by some form of food intolerance.
Discovering what food(s) you have a sensitivity to can change your life and often it can do so in dramatic ways. It is important to note that there are many reasons that your body is rejecting a particular food. Heredity can play a role as can the existence of chemicals, pesticides, food dyes and colourings. The fact that food now includes artificial ingredients, chemicals and pesticides can make it more difficult to initially understand one’s food allergies or food-related issues. All of these factors underscore the great importance of food intolerance testing.
