Food sensitivity is a very common problem-most people suffer an unpleasant reaction to something they have eaten at some point or other, with varying degrees of incapacity. The reaction occurs when a component of the food irritates the digestive system or when the digestive process is unable fully to break down the particular food, this is a digestive response and is usually related to the amount of the particular food eaten. Another type of reaction occurs when the food component triggers a response from the body’s immune system. This follows an initial “exposure” to a substance that the body deems harmful. When the body is subsequently exposed to the particular food component again, an inflammatory response is initiated by the release of antibodies and other inflammatory chemicals which aim to deal with the new threat. This response can be triggered following exposure to very small amounts of the food component.

The most common triggers of a sensitivity reaction are wheat, gluten, corn, dairy products, eggs, soy products, chocolate, nuts, fish, shellfish, citrus, tomatoes, and chemical additives.

What are the symptoms of food sensitivity?

Individual responses vary from person to person, but nausea, vomiting, flatulence, bloating, skin problems, breathing difficulties, depression, anxiety, irritability, joint pains, water retention and headaches are among the most common symptoms.

What are the underlying causes of food sensitivity?

There are 4 main causes:

  1. Poor diet, lack of variety and constant exposure to the same foods and additives can set up a reaction;
  2. Poor digestion, if there is low stomach acid or low enzyme levels then food is not properly broken down, which can damage and inflame the gut wall;
  3. Leaky gut, damage to the gut wall can lead to partially digested food and bacteria to pass through the gut wall into the bloodstream which may initiate an immune system response.
  4. Gut bacteria imbalance, friendly bacteria in the gut keep the immune system in balance but if the population of bacteria drops or is changed following for example a course of antibiotics or a period of stress then the immune system becomes unbalanced and food sensitivities can arise.

How can I identify food sensitivity?

Experience over a long period of time may be sufficient for most people to realise there may have been something in something they ate but identifying that something is the first step to regaining good digestive health. The fastest and most reliable method of testing is through blood sample analysis which assesses the levels of antibodies in the blood to a range of different (but limited) foods. If high levels are shown against any particular food then that is taken as good evidence of sensitivity to that food. The cost of such tests can be prohibitive and home-based testing is then appropriate.

Home based testing can be as straightforward as keeping a food and symptom diary to track food intake and signs and symptoms over the course of a week or so, and then to look for any patterns or associations which will help to identify the food causing the problem. It may be necessary to keep repeating the process until a pattern emerges.

At the next level is the Cambridge Nutritional Sciences Food Detective Test which can provide immediate feedback on problem foods. It’s a simple test to do and costs just £110 including a 1 hour complementary nutritional health assessment. For more details please feel free to contact me.

The food detective food intolerance testing kit identifies foods causing IgG antibody production which may be involved in various conditions such as food intolerance, IBS, eczema and arthritis. Once identified, the trigger foods may be eliminated from your diet.

The kit comes complete with a reaction tray. The reaction tray is spotted with food protein extracts. A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.

In subsequent steps the use of the detector and developer solutions identifies the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray. Reference to the food layout plan allows the foods causing antibody production to be identified.

Significant changes in diet should only be made after consultation with a qualified nutritionist.

If you have on going symptoms that you would like to be rid of this could be the right choice for you.

Below is a list of just some of the more common conditions that can be managed by eliminating foods that are causing antibody production.

  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Bloating
  • Depression
  • Eczema/psoriasis/dermatitis
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Joint and muscle pain, stiffness
