The Twelve Signs of Food Intolerance

Part B: Signs 5 - 8

Food intolerance can appear as dozens of symptoms - and some don't seem related to food at all. You'll notice some happen now and again - others you have suffered for years.

But the warning signs are there - if you know what to look for!

Another Four Classic Signs of Food Intolerance 

5). Chronic cough, bronchitis, asthma, colds and 'flu:

Respiratory conditions are often related to food intolerance. Once again it is the immune system responding by generating inflammation - this time in the lungs and nasal passages. But getting the diet right alleviates symptoms permanently. This is especially important for children who might otherwise miss learning opportunities. More on respiratory issues >


6). Eczema, psoriasis and chronic skin conditions:

Many people are surprised to find out that food intolerance can cause skin conditions like eczema.

This and psoriasis are just other forms of inflammation. Moving to the correct diet allows the skin to heal naturally. Clear skin is important to anyone - but especially so for children and teenagers who are still developing self esteem.

 

7). Aching joints, backache

When you have food intolerance your body is unable to fully digest certain foods. Unexpected products are generated - and some of them are not recognised as 'friendly' by your immune system. So an immune response takes place - inflammation - and this can settle in the leg joints (leg pain) or joints of the spine (backache, arthritis). 

So if your arthritis or backache has been caused by food intolerance - you can heal it - with Journal Method. 

 

8). Gradual weight gain - or weight loss

When you have unrecognised food intolerance - your thyroid gland can be affected. That means your metabolism gets disrupted. The thyroid gland processes your food either into energy (to burn) or into fat (to be stored for later use).

Mixed up signals means you 'store' when you should be 'burning' (weight gain). . .or vice versa. People who seem to stay thin regardless of what they eat probably have undiagnosed food intolerance - because they are unable to absorb nutrients from food. Getting back to your ideal size is easy - using a purpose-designed journal.

 

Three in Four People Have Food Intolerance

You now know 8 of the 12 Warning Signs of Food Intolerance. And yes - food intolerance is very common. Around 75% of all people have one or more of them . . . three in four people!

Which Foods Cause Depression and Anxiety?

Believe it or not we can actually start feeling blue and even get depression by eating foods our bodies cannot fully digest. It's called food intolerance - and the partially broken down food molecules produced get up to terrible mischief in the body.

Sometimes they create inflammation in the skin or joints or organs. And sometimes they disrupt those precious vital processes which allow us to cope and stay happy.

Anxiety Attacks and Depression - From Many Foods

If you are experiencing anxiety, blue feelings or even early signs of depression - it could be something as simple as eating the wrong foods (references below). So before resorting to heavy anti-depressant medication - make sure you have thoroughly checked out whether you could have a food intolerance.

  • Wouldn't you rather Switch a Few Foods - than get into heavy medications - and all their dreadful side-effects?

According to medical Journal evidence - the main culprits for anxiety and depression are:

  • Gluten from grains like Wheat and Barley
  • Sugars like those in processed foods
  • Dairy products (lactose)
  • Nightshade vegetables... and
  • Yeast - from many foods

You may be intolerant to one or more of these - and it may be making you feel bad. How to find out?

Member letter

Thank you so much for this site, this site is such a relief to me. I have had horrible mouth sores, gas + bloating, horrible depression and fatigue, I'm a classic example. If it were up to my doctor, I'd be on a plethora of prescription drugs, I can't wait to wean off of almost all of them. No medical person even brought up food intolerance - I researched it myself, I knew there had to be something to this. Thank you for helping me!!!  Sincerely, Michie

MICHIE (Two years later) ....I am really excited that you want to use my letter (that would be a "yes"!) Hopefully, you will reach even more people who are suffering needlessly from food intolerance.....you are presenting a real healing and viable solution. Thanks to you . . . I am living a happy life. I don't feel like I'm missing anything because there are many food choices out there for people like me, thanks to forums like yours who bring people together and create a demand for healthy food alternatives.

I appreciate you contacting me, and I wish you all the best on your latest venture!!! Michie

 

I think I might have food intolerance: What should I do?

Beginning with the free e-book we can help you establish if you are suffering from gluten or wheat intolerance or if your symptoms indicate an intolerance to dairy, fructose or yeast. You may even be suffering from more than one food intolerance.

Doing nothing can be a risk. Undiagnosed food intolerance can cause serious long-term health problems like osteoporosis, anaemia and many others. Sign up for the Free E-book 'How to Tell If You Have Food Intolerance'

foodintol® Healing Programs

“Introducing a Testing Program for discovering your problem foods and eliminating symptoms, quickly and easily - guaranteed to work within 21 days or your money back.”

The Food Intolerance Institute has helped tens of thousands of people who now enjoy greater vitality and freedom from persistent health problems, thanks to the Healing Program.

Get Yourself Well at Last

If you suspect that your chronic health symptoms might be due to a food, or you already know you suffer from food intolerance, this may be the most important website you read all year... 

Food intolerance is like a “delayed-reaction” food allergy, and because the symptoms may appear days after you eat specific foods, it's often difficult to identify exactly which foods are to blame.

                                              

Already Diagnosed in a Clinic?

Are you eating correctly for your intolerances - but still not well? Clinical tests are often misleading. . . but your symptoms don't lie!

That's why the Healing Program (Journal Testing) will nail it for you . . . guaranteed or your money refunded!

 

 

You may have food intolerance if you suffer from any of these:

      • Headaches: constant headaches, sinus pain and/or migraines
      • Skin problems: rashes, hives and eczema
      • Weight gain or unexplained weight loss
      • Bloating, gas or extreme abdominal discomfort
      • Digestive problems: irritable bowel (IBS), constipation, diarrhoea, nausea
      • Respiratory problems: sinusitis, asthma, sore throat, persistent cough
      • Aches and pains: back ache, stiff joints or arthritis
      • Candida: fungal infections like thrush, jock itch, tinea etc.

 

Remove the Cause of Symptoms - and the Healing Begins

But rather than constantly treating the symptoms of food intolerance, it makes much more sense to find and remove the cause, doesn’t it? – In other words, find the specific foods that trigger your particular health problems.

The Healing Program is the complete solution:

    • You receive the brilliant Detection Diet Journal plus six Complete Guides (to Gluten-free, Yeast-free, Fructose-free etc.)

This unique, scientifically-based program has been used successfully by thousands of people since 2003.

When you follow our Healing Program (just 21 days to wellness!) your long-term symptoms evaporate – because you eliminate the cause, rather than just treat the symptoms.  Find out more >

Who am I and why should you listen to me?

My name is Deborah Manners. For years I suffered with problems caused by multiple food intolerances. I struggled, trying to piece together information from doctors, scientific journals and books. But in 1994 the fuzzy collection of symptoms I described to my doctor was not typical of anything in particular.

My food intolerance was actually holding me back physically, mentally and professionally. Finding my way through the maze of food types, advisors, unfamiliar ingredients, new terms and language, recipes and labelling laws was difficult and frustrating. I felt like I was going in circles...

...but with the aid of my science background (I have a Bachelor of Science with Honours) and together with the help of a very talented and dedicated team, I thoroughly researched the medical literature and other reputable sources and developed a foolproof method of identifying problem foods and restoring health.

So in early 2004, I made my food intolerance Healing Program available to others via the internet - and to date have helped tens of thousands of people overcome their food intolerance problems finally and forever and regain their health.

All the hard work has been done for you. The information, recipes and step-by-step guides have been written specially to take you smoothly through the obstacle-course of food intolerance. The Healing Program >

What benefits can you expect when you follow the Healing Program?

People who follow the Healing Program report that they are healthier, happier, and enjoy eating more than ever. Some who have suffered chronic illness for years improve dramatically – or heal completely. You can expect:

  • A clear improvement in overall health: your skin glows and your energy bounces back. Early on you feel an initial positive change in your outlook. Later this evolves into a whole new sense of true wellness
  • Nagging symptoms disappear and the stress and aggravation evaporate
  • Get back to your ideal weight! If you are overweight, those extra kilos start to melt away. If you are underweight, your body heals and strengthens once it becomes properly nourished. 
  • Avoid serious disease later in life. Scientific studies show that food intolerance is linked to serious disease. Tackling it now means you get to enjoy a grand old age with your grandchildren and great grandchildren – but it's the immediate benefits you'll enjoy most. 

 

 

"My life has been turned around"

I have done the journal and found to my surprise that after 56 years of being constipated (going once a week/fortnight from a young child) to going every day. 

It's a miracle AND I have been suffering from insomnia (thought to be hormone related) for 7- 8 years and am now sleeping every night like a log.  I am extremely happy and want to thank you for your help. 

My daughter had done the program and suggested I try it.  I am very glad I did.... my life has been turned around.  Thanks - Lesley : )
