Keep reading for the symptoms of food intolerance. So, they’re difficult to self diagnose. Also, food intolerance test results aren’t helpful if we don’t:
(i) Know where the triggers can be found in our day to day diet
(ii) How long we need to avoid the foods
(iii) Know why we are suddenly reacting to food we ate without any problems whole our entire lives. Does this mean we have to avoid all these food completely now forever?
That’s not all…
A recent study has shown that those who eliminated trigger foods based on food-specific IgG test results had reductions in weight, BMI body mass index, waist and hip circumference and improvements in all indicators of quality of life that were measured. Quality of life indicators include physical and emotional wellbeing, mental health, social life, pain levels and vitality.
