What is a Food Intolerance?

A Food Intolerance is a reaction to foods that can cause a variety of symptoms ranging from bloating and fatigue to skin rashes and weight gain.  A Food Intolerance is not life-threatening. It can take up to 3 days for symptoms to develop making it hard to identify the culprit food.

Please note Food Allergies are not the same as Food Intolerances and can be life-threatening causing difficulty breathing, vomiting, and swelling of the lips. If you experience this kind of reaction you should seek medical advice.

What happens if I have a Food Intolerance?

If you do have a food intolerance, it is recommend that you cut out the offending foods.

It is important that you find suitable replacements and still eat in a balanced way. We will always find suitable alternatives so that you are eating a broad and varied diet. We have witnessed dramatic improvements in symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea and water retention once the offending foods have been eliminated. We work with patients who have IBS, bloating, diarrhea, eczema,  psoriasis, weight issues, candida and a variety of skin conditions.
