Food Sensitivities and Food Allergies

Dealing with food sensitivities can be frustrating and leave us feeling uncomfortable, itchy, bloated, and irritable. The challenge lies in the fact that these sensitivities may not show up as “true allergies” in standard GP tests, which can leave us puzzled and powerless.

It’s important to recognise that there is a wide range of potential culprits when it comes to food sensitivities. From sugar and dairy to gluten, nightshades, caffeine, salicylates, histamine, oxalates, nuts, legumes, and many more, the list can feel overwhelming.

If you suspect that certain foods are triggering your symptoms but struggle to pinpoint the specific culprit or find effective ways to avoid it, seeking the guidance of a nutritional therapist can be immensely helpful. A qualified professional can support you through an elimination and careful reintroduction process, enabling you to identify problem foods and develop a tailored approach to managing your food sensitivities.

While food allergies and food sensitivities may differ in their mechanisms and severity, both can significantly impact our well-being. Don’t let the confusion and discomfort of food sensitivities hold you back. With the assistance of a knowledgeable nutritional therapist, you can regain control over your diet and find relief from your symptoms.

Together we can embark on a journey of discovering your triggers, creating a personalised plan, and reclaiming your power over your health.
