With the plethora of fast food, processed food, and a general disconnect to where our food comes from, it is easy to see the connection of diseases processes with our food choices. Every disease process is influenced by our food choices, and some diseases are solely manifested by our daily meal choices. Some common symptoms that are related to your food choices are:
- chronic pain
- weight gain / obesity
- irritable bowel syndrome
- skin problems / eczema
- auto immune related diseases
This is a very short list, as there are a multitude of symptoms related to our food choices from respiratory issues to what is called brain fog. You are what you eat, you know!
To the right is a diagram of one of our patients that presented with widespread chronic pain. She had been to several specialists that did typical imaging and blood work that revealed nothing. The doctors that she went to were stumped. On her own behalf she suspected a food sensitivity and eliminated gluten from her diet. Her symptoms disappeared and she now leads a normal life. She reports that even when she gets the slightest amount of gluten in her diet that that it creates symptoms, and she is not a celiac.
The best way to help guide you towards better health is through a nutritional consultation.
