The average American eats a large amount of processed foods that are typically full of chemicals, grains, simple carbohydrates, and unhealthy fats. These foods are usually low in essential vitamins and minerals, and can contribute to inflammation, and one of the biggest offenders in the American diet today is gluten. With so many people unaware that they have a gluten sensitivity, there are many people eating gluten every day that are actually sensitive to it. Eating foods you have a sensitivity to can cause an inflammatory response and can damage the lining of your gut, as well as affect other organs. This chronic inflammation can wreak havoc throughout your body, and can cause symptoms that may be misdiagnosed as a medical condition in some cases. You cannot take enough supplements or exercise enough to compensate for continuing to eat something your body is sensitive to, which is why we say you can’t outrun your fork because you must fix your diet. However, many people don’t want to cut foods out of their diet until they are sure they are sensitive or allergic to them. So, in this week’s podcast episode we’ll go over some symptoms of food sensitivities, and discuss our new test that tests for gluten sensitivities as well as a couple of other food groups.
