With chronic conditions affecting almost half of the U.S. population, health experts have started to consider other potential causes of these conditions. Exposure to environmental toxins, stress, trauma, and genetic predispositions can all play a role in the development of certain chronic health conditions, but food sensitivities could also have a big influence. Food sensitivities and allergies are much more common than they used to be, and the symptoms are often minimal or mimic other conditions and can be difficult to diagnose without proper testing. Gluten is one of the more common sensitivities, and we are finding more people have a gluten sensitivity than previously thought. In this week’s show we’ll discuss some of the potential symptoms and effects a gluten sensitivity could cause to see if gluten could be the hidden cause of your health issues. We’ll also go over how to test for food sensitivities, and what you can do to help heal your gut.
