Do you think that food sensitivities are no big deal? Have you been taught to believe that food sensitivities aren’t real? The reality is that even though many doctors claim that they don’t believe in them, they are real and can in some cases cause even more problems especially for your long-term health than allergies. Food sensitivities can in fact, be the root cause of a lot of health problems including asthma, seasonal allergies, chronic pain, headaches and migraines, and digestive issues. They can also be a lot harder to diagnose than food allergies.

Here are a few research articles on the topic of food sensitivities.

Non-celiac wheat sensitivity as an allergic condition: personal experience and narrative review.

Effects of foods and beverages on the symptoms of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Another important thing to remember is that while gluten and dairy are the most common food sensitivities, they are not the only ones. I personally have a severe food sensitivity to brazil nuts, blueberries and asparagus. For years, I didn’t realize I had these and had a lot of health issues including year-round sinus allergies and infections which only cleared up when I stopped eating these and other foods that were bugging me.

So in short, if you want good health and want to be as drug-free as possible, then you need to identify and work on healing from your food sensitivities.
