Less Common Food Sensitivities: Soy, Corn, Nightshades etc.

Before you suspect any of the Less Common Food Sensitivities - remember - your symptoms are much more likely to be from one of the main four: Gluten, Dairy, Fructose or Yeast. If you suspect food intolerance these four are the first ones to investigate.

Other Food Sensitivities - For Your Awareness

However there are other less common food sensitivities. Ironically - some of these are offered as 'gluten-free alternatives' in health food shops. But beware - they can cause just as many diffcult symptoms as gluten, fructose or dairy.

So if you still have symptoms despite checking out the main four - look at any of these:

    • 'Alternative' grains like millet, quinoa, amaranth
    • Sorbitol and Polyols and alternative sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin
    • Food additives (artificial preservatives, flavour enhancers, colours etc.)
    • Latex foods: cross-reactions with banana, avocado, chestnut and others
    • Salicylates: found in some medications like aspirin and in tiny amounts in plants
    • So-called “Super Foods” like Chia, Goji berries and acai etc.

Now remember - nobody has all these food sensitivities! But you may have more than one.

It's not a good idea to change your diet without having actual proof of your food intolerance. Use a Journal for fast answers as in the Healing Program.


Changed diet - but still have symptoms?

If you are already following a special diet (perhaps prescribed by a naturopath) - but you are still suffering symptoms, there are three possible explanations:

      • You are still accidentally eating what you are trying to avoid . . . or
      • You have guessed the wrong intolerance or are misdiagnosed . . . or
      • You have an additional food intolerance - as yet undiagnosed

In any of the above cases we can help you find the answers.

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

Beginning with our 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.

The research indicates doing nothing can be a risk. Undiagnosed food intolerance can cause serious long-term health problems like osteoporosis, anaemia and many others.
