Contrary to popular belief, not all food you eat is completely digested before it enters the bloodstream.
Blood travels to all parts of your body and undigested, or partly digested food particles can be transported to all tissue organs.
Your immune system does not recognise these food particles and attacks them to try and break them down and disperse them. This work is done by white blood cells, mainly the neutrophils.
During this attack, inflammatory chemicals are released which can cause damage to the surrounding tissues. If the food you are intolerant to continues to be eaten, severe long-term damage can occur leading to a wide rage of conditions, such as asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), migraine, arthritis, eczema and weight problems.
If troublesome foods can be identified and removed from the diet, a wide range of symptoms and medical conditions may improve significantly and, often clear completely. An additional benefit can be healthy weight loss.
NuTron Health offer food intolerance tests at clinics around the world or by home testing kits to help you find out if you are intolerant to certain foods.
