Food Elimination & Reintroduction Challenge for Detecting Food Sensitivities
A food sensitivity is a immune response to a particular food. It is different than a food allergy in that it is a different antibody that responds to the food. In a food allergy the antibodies are extremely aggressive making the reactions often quicker and more severe. The antibodies in a food sensitivity are less so and the reaction can take a few days to present which makes food sensitivities difficult to detect. Symptoms include gastrointestinal distress, acne, hives, itching, eczema, rashes , runny nose, dizziness, joint pain, brain fog, blurry vision, increased heart rate, tight chest, headache, drowsiness, irritability.
