More than half of our immune system is found in the digestive tract, which makes having a proper functioning digestive track is so important. Unfortunately, most doctors don’t see the correlation between how food sensitives and food allergies can affect diseases like irritable bowel, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, heart disease, lupus and skin conditions like psoriases and eczema.
People who have issues with bloating, indigestion, acid reflux and other bowel problems may not see the root cause associated with hidden food allergies. These often overlooked food allergens, if allowed to continue, will weaken the immune system and cause inflammation. If this is allowed to continue, the constant overexposure to these allergies overworks and confuses the immune system that can lead to autoimmune diseases.
The problem arises when these food allergies inflame and irritate your digestion tract and comprises your intestines and health in general.
2. Better absorption of foods by eliminating allergies.
Allergens reduce your ability to absorb the nutrients in your foods. Just because you eat a healthy diet doesn’t mean you absorb the nutrients in the foods. We had a patient that worked at an organic market with allergies. And she was allergic to many of the foods she thought was good for her. Eliminating allergies is a critical step in healing, because nourishment is the only way to heal and strengthen the body.
Also, undigested food particles can leak through the gut and enter your bloodstream. This is where the immune problem begins.
These undigested food particles are considered ‘foreign invaders’ by the immune system and triggers an antibody and histamine response to fight the foreign invaders and creates an allergic response. So the next time you eat those foods, your body starts the process all over again. This is why the immune system becomes confused as to which are the harmful bad guys and which aren’t. These food particles aren’t supposed to be there and are attacked like any other virus, bacteria or other microbe.
3. Eliminate stress.
And when you add stress the equation, we have a cascade of chemical reactions that triggers cortisol, your primary stress hormone. Cortisol can attack the intestinal lining. This can cause leaky gut and makes you more susceptible yeast, candida, fungus and parasites.
Constant stress can also interfere with your body’s ability to create the proper amount of digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid which are very important with food digestion. Many medications made to tread digestive issues, like proton pump inhibitors, like prevacid, do just the opposite of what is needed. They inhibit the production of HCL.
The first step in calming down your gut is to either stay away from all potentially irritating foods. That means, no dairy, wheat, corn, soy, peanuts, coffee, and other things you might be allergic to for up to a month. This will give time for the digestive tract to heal.
A better approach is to eliminate your allergies by using The Allergy Kit,
an alternative approach to eliminating your allergies that reprograms the immune system to react normally to allergens rather than react. This allows the gut to heal and could be the answer to your digestive and other allergic related problems. The Allergy Kit could also address many autoimmune problems and other health complaints.
And since most of the serotonin is produced in the gut and serotonin increases our mood and fights anxiety, insomnia and behavior problems in children, it only makes sense to eliminate your allergies so your gut can heal and you can get your life back.
