Why Do I Feel Like Junk? Food Intolerance?

So many of us walk around each and every day feeling like JUNK!  We are tired and cranky, have chronic headaches, chronic fatigue, chronic digestion problems, just to name a few.  Very often overlooked is the possibility that these symptoms are actually symptoms of a food intolerance.  Food intolerance can mask itself as so many other diseases that today’s doctors often misdiagnose food intolerance for something else.

Food intolerance symptoms run the gamut from fatigue, to headaches to digestive problems to skin disorders.  The symptoms are almost endless.

Each of us has a duty and responsibility to ourselves and the people who love us to take the best care of our bodies.  Almost every member of the world-wide population suffers from a food intolerance of some kind.  Many of us also suffer unnecessarily with food intolerance symptoms when the treatment is so easy.  The treatment involves merely eliminating the offending food from your diet.  Walah!  Symptoms disappear and health begins to get back on track.

The biggest offenders for food intolerance are wheat/gluten, dairy, eggs, corn and soy.  Two other big ones are sugar and yeast.  If you suspect you have a food intolerance, you can get blood tests or you can begin by keeping a diary of what you are eating and how you feel.  That can give big answers that you may not have ever thought of.  You can then eliminate what you suspect are the offending foods from your diet for a period of at least 3 weeks before you evaluate how you feel.  Although, most people who eliminate a food intolerance begin to feel relief from symptoms almost immediately.

Be sure that you are getting your vitamins and minerals if you eliminate food from your diet.  Hydration is another key to feeling good, so be sure to hydrate.  Lastly, explore this site for information on food intolerance in greater detail.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels!

    I suffered for so long with chronic digestion problems. Embarrassing to the point that I would cancel dates if I had a flare-up or cancel other social events. I found out later that I had a Food Intolerance to dairy. Now, I avoid dairy and no more gas. So relieved. It’s been like 6 months or so and I feel so much better. Every doctor should look at this first.
