Food Allergies, Intolerances and Sensitivities
It’s no surprise that food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities are affected by the health of your gut. The permeability of your gut lining and inflammation in the gut can give rise to these adverse food reactions, provoking symptoms affecting the digestive and respiratory tracts as well as the skin and the nervous system. Appropriate diet intervention is essential in relieving symptoms and improving your quality of life.
