food allergiesFirst off, it is important to differenciate between food allergies and food intolerances. In both of these, your body is unable to process a food thus causing noticeable symptoms in the body. In a food allergy, these can be as severe as anaphylaxis. Food intolerances ((IgG) are less severe, but they cause plenty of discomfort that can make daily life a struggle. There are two types of food allergy reactions. The first is when your body mistakes the food for an invader and attacks it; systems other than the food often get caught in the crossfire which results in inflammation which causes signs and symptoms of food allergies. The second type is when pieces of the food break away and enter the bloodstream, spreading to other areas of the body and irritating them.

More common food allergies (IgE) include shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, eggs, wheat, and milk. It is also possible to be allergic or intolerant of things you might not expect, like berries, meats, poultry or vegetables. One out of every three Americans will say they have a food allergy, or that they avoid a certain food because a family member is highly allergic. 3%-8% of children are documented having food allergies, and 3% of adults. Meanwhile, 95% of the population is said to have basic signs or symptoms of a food intolerance. Again, while less severe in presentation than allergies, these intolerances can cause daily discomfort that makes life more difficult than it needs to be. Allergies are influenced by genetics, other allergies, or a lack of enzymes among other things. In rare cases, it is even possible to develop a food allergy psychologically: if you undergo a traumatic experience while eating a certain food (especially as a child) your body can assosiate the two and react negatively to said food.

The most common basic food allergy signs and symptoms are as follows:

Tingling or itching in the mouth
Hives, itching, or eczema
Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting
Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
Wheezing, nasal congestion or trouble breathing

Food intolerance symptoms:
headaches, stomach aches, joint pain, fatigue, acne, skin eruptions, hair loss, trouble sleeping, weight gain, inability to lose weight, brain fog, hyperactivity, inflammation, frequent sicknesses, asthma and breathing challenges, sinus congestion, earaches and frequent ear infections

There are a few ways to look for a food allergy if you think you have one, all of which should be done under care of a professional. One method is keeping a food journal, where you record all of your meals and also record any symptoms at various times of the day. Another method is an elimination diet, where foods will be removed and replaced and symptoms will be monitored to figure out which food is the culprit. Lastly, you can test your blood directly for food allergies and food intolerances. Essentially, these food allergy tests commonly go one of two ways. The first is by exposing blood to various foods and seeing whether or not it reacts. Alcat is the most popular lab that test immune cell reaction. The second is by looking for antibodies in the blood that fight against specific foods. Immuno Labs and Alletest are two labs we use at our clinic that test antibody levels for IgE and IgG levels.

If you are having basic signs and symptoms of food allergies here is how to order a test.

EczemaEczema is an inflammatory condition that involves “flare-ups“ generated from food allergies , food intolerances or stress irritants. Symptoms of eczema range from swollen/dry skin that may be very itchy to bleeding sores. One factor that may cause eczema is genetics – research shows that people that have or are currently suffering (or had family that suffered) from asthma or hay fever are more likely to develop eczema. The three of these are allergen related diseases called the atopic triad, and essentially means that your body does not respond as well to potentially irritating stimuli. Another factor that can lead to eczema is auto immunity. One family member may have an auto immune like fibromyalgia which affects the connective tissues and another family member may have eczema which effects the skin.

Eczema flare-ups are caused by two things – stress and food. High stress levels raises cortisol which causes the adrenals to overwork themselves. This weakens your body’s immune system which makes it more susceptible to irritants, intolerances and allergies. People that struggle with eczema should have do a stress management progams for themselves, avoid caffeine, and make sure to get plenty of sleep.

The second cause of linked to eczema is food. This is where things get interesting. It should be specified that generalized diets do nothing for reducing eczema. While eating healthy benefits your body regardless, there is no research that shows that “eczema diets“ have any actual effect. What’s important in contrast is to know your body’s specific food allergies (IGE) and food intolerances (IGG). Since each person has a unique body, we have unique ways in which we absorb and process the food we eat. Regardless of our ailments – eating foods that our body does not process as well can cause unnecessary stress on the body which amplifies any ailments we already have, including being linked to eczema.

Nutritionally Yours hassuccessfully helpe people with eczema clear up. We understand that eczema may be linked to food allergies and everyone’s diet needs to be unique for them. We highly suggest a food allergy test for anyone struggling from eczema or any skin condition. Identifying your personal irritants can help bring relief and significantly reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms, all while getting you feeling better.

FibromyalgiaFibromyalgia is a disorder known for widespread musculoskeletal pain, along with fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues including depression and brain fog. Research shows that fibromyalgia affects us by amplifying the way the brain processes pain signals, thus causing things to seem more painful than they actually are. Symptoms typically begin after a physical or psychological trauma, years of eating a poor diet full of inflammatory causing foods, an auto immune condition or an auto immune flare up. Symptoms can begin softlly and then grow in intensity over time. While experts debate on the official cause – the markers we can always see are physical or psychological stressors as well as a genetic history in some cases. Research also shows that the pain is specifically caused by a mix of both an increase in the chemicals that cause pain in our brain, as well as the pain receptors in the brain developing a sort of “memory“ of pain, which makes them more sensitive and causes an overreaction so said pain.

The most associated symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread pain. This often is described as a dull ache that has lasted more than three months. For a pain to be considered widespread, it must also occur on both sides of your body as well as both above and below the waist. No one wants be told they have to find a way to live with pain and fatigue. There are natural ways to help the body stop hurting so that fibromylalgia sufferers can put the pain behind them and get on with living life.

A large percentage of people that suffer from fibromyalgia say their symptoms worsen when they consume certain foods. There are also cases where food sensitivities are amplified by fibromyalgia and present themselves as disorders like IBS or as other digestion problems. Many people with fibromyalgia do recognize that they have food allergies or food sensitivities and when they avoid the foods they are sensitive to they feel better. At Nutritionally Yours, we have worked with so many people with fibromyalgia we can definatley state that there is a direct link to food allergies can fibromyalgia. Some food allergies are similar for most people with fibromyalgia. For example most people with fibromyalgia react to grains including gluten. Dairy seems to be the second worst food for people with pain. Besides these two, other food allergies are different for everyone. For example one person can eat all the kale they want to and they feel great, but give kale to someone with an IGG reaction and they will flare up. The people that do food allergy / intolerance testing and then avoid all the foods their body reacts to, while also keeping a generally healthy diet, usually notice a significant positive change in their fibromyalgia, fatigue levels, and any digestion issues.

At Nutritionally Yours, we recommend a food allergy testto more specifically and accurately identify any food intolerences you might suffer from. We also offer 1 hour phone consultations to help you put together a dietary lifestyle to reduce or eliminate any fibromyalgia syptoms.

On a personal note: having battled Lyme for many years and now Fibromyalgia I can personally tell you all that diet is the #1 thing I watch daily to make sure my pain level is way down! I have done gluten testing (Cyrex Lab [see foodallergytest.org]) and IgG testing (see IGG on foodallergytest.org) and symptoms improved with dietary changes quickly. Testing is always surprising to me; when I did IgG testing cherries were positive and I love cherries. I forget sometimes and add them to my morning smoothie and oh boy do my fibromyalgia symptoms flare up! Food allergies were clearly linked to my fibro pain and auto immune flare ups.

food allergies

.

In our office we have had countless clients who have tried many diets and weight loss remedies without success. There are even some who gained even more weight after their attempts at bandwagon diets and weight loss pills. Being overweight can be linked to more than simply overeating, and instead of everyone doing the same thing a remedy should instead be unique to each person. After all, just as each person is unique, each person’s body is equally unique.

First, it is important to specify that there are multiple forms of being overweight. It is possible to consider yourself overweight but still be healthy if the weight comes from a large bone structure or a high amount of muscle mass. In this article we will be specifically addressing those overweight from a high fat content as it pertains to BMI (body mass index) which looks at the ratios between fat and other parts of the body such as muscle and organs.

One way people can become overweight is simply through overeating. Food is a natural source of comfort for people and many have an urge to eat as a response to stressors such as work, school, family, etc. What many do not realize, though, is that a person can also become overweight through eating foods that your body has trouble processing (food allergies). Think back to how each body is unique, in this way each body has foods that it processes well and foods that it does not process well. Your favorite food is probably different than those of your friends and family members, and just so you probably dislike foods that those around you absolutely love. This is normal and simply shows how unique we are as individuals. In this same way, there are foods that your body is able to process nutrients from efficiently, and those that your body views as harmful and attempts to flush out.

When you consume a food that your body is not tolerant to, it attacks said food with white blood cells just like it would a viral or bacterial invader. This is a normal immune response, but it can disrupt the digestive system if it happens too often. When this occurs it can lead to fermentation within the gut and intestines, which then leads to inflammation which is where the increase in weight comes from. At Nutritionally Yours we recommend a food allergies test for those who struggle with weight loss. Once the test has been completed, we give you a comprehensive protocol with your results with the goal of getting you to the best you that you can be.

insomniaMore than 60% of American adults have trouble sleeping at least a few nights a week. Sleep is the body’s way of healing itself by replenishing and replacing cells damaged from stress and ultraviolet rays. Sleep also triggers hormones that regulate mood and energy. Sleep restores alertness in the mind and helps with memory. A lack of sleep can be just as hard on someone as a lack of sustenance in the body. In chronic cases, insomnia can lead to depression, obesity, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. The current American mindset is that sleep is more of a luxury than a necessity. It is often lower in priority than work and social endeavors. The reality is that without sleep, you will not be at the optimal functioning level and you will have a lower quality of life.

The general term for sleep issues is Insomnia. Insomnia has many forms, including not being able to fall asleep, waking up often during the night, waking up earlier than necessary, and not feeling rejuvenated after a full night of sleep. The human body, along with that of animals and plants, is regulated by something called the circadian rhythm. This is a 24 hour cycle that determines sleeping patterns, eating patterns, hormone production, body temperature, and more. The cycle is set up to be in sync with the rising and setting of the sun. The main regulator for this cycle is melatonin. Your body develops melatonin naturally, but looking at bright lights (like the sun) will destroy it. Essentially, this means that when the sun is down and it gets dark, the melatonin that is produced will tell your body it is time to sleep. It is because of this cycle that things like jet lag affect people so much. The cycle is disrupted and needs time to reset itself.

If you find yourself with insomnia symptoms, there are many things to watch out for. The first step to take is to make sure you are allowing your body to have natural triggers to fall asleep. This means do not fall asleep with a TV or computer on, as the light can disrupt your melatonin. Try not to text or search the internet on your cell phone within one hour of sleeping. The second is to be aware of your body and how the food you eat affects you. The food you eat is related to every single process your body conducts, including the sleep cycle. Going to bed after consuming caffeine, sugar and junk food, for example, will make it difficult to sleep. Also, while many people believe that alcohol is good for sleep, it is actually counter intuitive as the dehydration will wake you up and keep you awake as soon as the alcohol effects wear off. Other foods can also be related to your sleep cycle, and sometimes helping insomnia is as simple as knowing what food you should add/avoid in your day to day diet.

At Nutritionally Yours we know that sleep is crucial to a healthier you. If you do not sleep well, you will not function optimally which can effect work, family life, social life, frustration level, anxiety and even the quality of the food you chose to eat. If you are tired, you most likely will not be able to find the energy to cook a healthy meal. Here are a few examples of how Insomnia could be related to food in regard to a few of our clients:

 

One mom does everything right at night, she eats a healthy dinner, reads a book in the evening and avoids the computers after 8pm. But when she lies down and turns out the lights, nothing happens. She cannot fall asleep. It turned out that the protein gluten was triggering autoimmune responses in her body and once she was ready to rest, her body would not allow it. She did a food test for gluten and it was positive, eliminated gluten from her diet and falls asleep just fine now.

Another woman would eat healthy during the day and enjoyed a slice of gluten free bread and almond butter around 9:30pm. By 10:00pm her heart was racing and so were her thoughts. Food intolerance testing identified almonds as a food trigger. She was amazed, changed to sunflower butter and was able to sleep better.

Lastly we have a client that eats a Paleo autoimmune diet but sometimes enjoys a sweet dessert after dinner. What happens to her is the sugar causes a spike and then a drop in blood sugar which causes her dreams to get interrupted with sudden waking up. Food intolerance testing identified sugar to be a trigger for her so she stopped the sugar and she too is sleeping better.

All of these situations indicated that insomnia cold be food related. Change the food, eliminate the insomnia, and improve the quality of life!

At Nutritionally Yours, we offer a few comprehensive food allergy tests. These can show you what your body is intolerant of along with what food are best for you. Every person is unique and has their own health struggles and their own food intolerance(s). We recommend not making dramatic alterations to your diet without first knowing what food(s) YOU need to avoid and which food(s) you get to enjoy. In the end, our goal is to improve your quality of life and sleep and help you get on the path to a better YOU.

skin conditionsAccording to studies by the American Academy of Dermatology, women after age twenty develop acne at greater rates: fifty percent between ages twenty and twenty-nine, and twenty five percent between twenty-nine and forty-nine . This means that even if you have perfect skin throughout adolescence, puberty, and your teenage years it is still possible to develop acne later in life. The two main causes of this are hormone imbalances and food sensitivities. The most common food allergy “culprit” is gluten, which first affects the gut and in turn affects the skin. At Nutritionally Yours we get many calls from women and men that start to battle skin conditions all of a sudden and they are wondering if there is a link to food allergies. Some are battling acne, others are dealing with eczema or psoriasis and some are trying to slow down or stop the skin condition called Vertiligo.

What is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains such as oat, barley, rye, and spelt. It is primarily used in bread to hold the loaf together, but can also be found in places such as imitation meats, soy sauce, ketchup, and ice cream. It is even used in cosmetics, toothpaste, and shampoo because of its glue-like qualities. People who do not respond well to gluten have one of two reactions to it. The first way people can respond is via an autoimmune against the gut known as Celiac disease. Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, fatigue, and bloating and occur immediately after consuming gluten. The second type of reaction is a gluten sensitivity. In gluten sensitivity, Celiac symptoms can occur but are gradual rather than immediate. It should also be noted that people with a gluten sensitivity complain of headaches, muscle weakness, and various skin conditions.

There are two ways that gluten will negatively impact the body in those sensitive to it. The first is that it harms the gut by forming cracks in the outer lining, which allows toxins to enter back into the body. The second is that the body will not properly digest it and it will enter the blood stream. It is then viewed as an invader by the immune system and the attack on the gluten causes inflammation due to the large size of the gluten molecules. This inflammation or “auto immune attack” can directly result in skin conditions.

Our clinic owner, Alane battled skin conditions most of her life. It started around age 16 and then stopped during her 30’s. But even now if she eats a food she is “allergic” to or that causes an “auto immune skin attack” the result will be acne. The main links for her turned out to be dairy, peanuts, gluten and rice.

The following is a list of skin conditions which can be linked to food allergies or food intolerance: acne, hair loss, canker sores, eczema, bacterial growth, inflammation, inflammatory myopathy, chronic mouth sores, psoriasis, hives, and pale patches of the skin. If you have struggled with any of these skin conditions or any of the other above listed symptoms, they could be linked to struggles with food allergies including gluten, grains, and other food triggers.

Every woman desires to have beautiful skin; this can be achieved. We see it every week at our clinic. We are able to help women and men overcome the annoyances of food allergies linking to a variety of skin conditions. The key is to identify the food allergy culprits and then eliminate them from your diet. Yes, you can have beautiful and clear skin again!

At Nutritionally Yours, we offer a variety of food allergy / intolerance tests ranging from specific gluten and oat tests to comprehensive general food tests. All of our testing is done by nationally certified labs so you are assured the results are accurate. Test results are reviewed by our staff, who will then provide you with a personal protocol so you can know what is needed to support better health and wellness.

Each of us is an individual, with particular nutritional needs, and we are unknowingly eating foods that are causing “toxic” symptoms. One symptom of a “toxic” food reaction is a constant upset stomach.

upset stomach

upset stomach


Are you too often asking yourself the following questions???

Why is my stomach upset? What causes a constant upset stomach? Why me?


First let’s take a look at this question:

What is the function of the stomach?

The stomach is an organ located in the upper abdomen between the esophagus and the small intestine. The stomach performs the following functions:

  • takes in and breaks down food
  • destroys foreign agents
  • aids in digestion
  • sends signals to the brain when you’re full

The stomach also helps prevent infections by secreting an acid from its lining that acts on harmful bacteria that you may have consumed with a meal.

Although most absorption of nutrients occurs in the small intestine, the stomach helps break down amino acids and absorbs simple sugars, such as glucose. A sphincter, or valve, at the bottom of the stomach regulates how much food enters the small intestine.

 

Do you ever wonder why your stomach is churning? There are many possible causes of a constant upset stomach. Here are the main stomach upset culprits:

Food and drink

If your stomach is upset, it may be something you ate or drank. This may be due to:

  • Food poisoning: When food becomes contaminated with viruses, bacteria, or parasites, it can cause upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, or fever.
  • Overeating and drinking: If you eat or drink too much, you can get indigestion or an upset stomach.
  • Eating certain types of foods: Greasy, spicy, or fatty foods can sometimes cause indigestion or an upset stomach.
  • Food intolerance: Yes! Even healthy foods can be a cause of an upset stomach. Food intolerance’s are different for everyone. That healthy lunch you eat, or the organic dinner you fixed, may just be a cause for your upset stomach.

Symptoms Associated with a Sensitive, Constant, Upset Stomach

Common symptoms of constant upset stomach may include:

  • abdominal pain
  • cramps
  • nausea (with or without vomiting)
  • an increase in bowel movements
  • loose stool or diarrhea
  • headache
  • body aches
  • chills (with or without fever)

What Causes a Constant, Upset Stomach?

An upset stomach is characterized by inflammation, swelling of the stomach lining and intestines. Inflammation can be caused by food. YES! The food you are eating everyday can cause stomach inflammation and then a constant upset stomach to follow. This is because certain foods can cause an irritation to your stomach which then turns into inflammation and then a stomach ache.

If you are experiencing some of the symptoms associated with a sensitive, constant, upset stomach, what can you do about it???

The right food allergy / intolerance test can identify the foods that cause your constant upset stomach.

When an “intolerant” food is eaten the body “revolts” which results in constant, upset stomach symptoms. The immune system starts to treat the “intolerant” foods as strange, hostile invaders and it reacts to let you know there is a problem you need to deal with. Thus………here comes the constant upset stomach pains.

Food intolerance is much more common than a true food “allergy.”

  • An estimated 95% of the population suffers from food intolerances . The symptoms vary from individual to individual, but all have one thing in common: when a person stops eating the foods that are causing the symptoms like a constant upset stomach, their symptoms disappear.
  • However, many people are unaware that they suffer from food intolerance because their upset stomach and other symptoms may vary widely and often appear hours, or even days, after the causative agent is consumed.

 

So What is the Solution for Constant Upset Stomach?

You have been created uniquely and need your own individualized meal program. Start with a food allergy / intolerance test to identify which foods need to be eliminated from your diet…..change your diet accordingly…..then start feeling better and enjoying life! Another bonus is you will stop wasting money buying groceries that are making you sick, and you are only buying food that keeps you well.

Eating the wrong food can be devastating!

Eating the right food is TRULY your first and best medicine!!!

“One person’s food is another person’s poison!” Hippocrates

 

Why can’t you just skip the test and start eating healthy foods? Because even healthy foods like spinach, broccoli, carrots, beans, kale….the list goes on and on………can cause Food Intolerance symptoms like a constant upset stomach. It is not just junk food that causes symptoms!

DairyMucous, mucous everywhere! I cannot breath normal again, my sinuses are clogged up and I have that awful sinus pressure. Yesterday was fine, no sinus symptoms, this is baffling! It can’t be another sinus infection so what is affecting my sinuses?

Have you ever wondered how some of the foods you eat, like dairy can be effecting your sinuses? Could your excess mucous and sinus pressure actually be from some of your favorite foods that come from dairy?

Has this ever happened to you? You have a “favorite food,” mine was ice cream. I grew up on it. My family would always enjoy our walk down the block to the local Carvel Ice Cream store. (I grew up on Long Island, New York and Carvel ice cream was delicious). Years of eating ice cream and then switching to frozen yogurt as I got older created havoc in my body. First my sinuses would get clogged up and I could not breath and then my belly would hurt. Goodness gracious, all from that creamy, delicious treat.

Did you know that there is such a thing as a “good kind of mucus?” It is produced to help our respiratory organs carry on their work efficiently. This kind of mucus is being produced all the time by the membranes lining the sinus cavity. Yet when it becomes excessive it is annoying and painful and needs to be reduced.

Have you ever wondered if there was TRULY a link between mucous and the food we eat everyday? The connection is more real and verifiable than many people realize. The excessive mucus can irritate the sinus and nasal cavity and cause infection in those organs’ membranes, especially after eating certain foods. Dairy just happens to be one of those “inflammatory” foods which loves to affect your sinuses and clog them up.

Even now years later I am not perfect. I eat a dairy free diet 90% of the time. Just a few weeks ago I went to my favorite Mediterranean restaurant and ordered the meat kabobs with a side of arugula salad, with beets and feta. Within a few hours, while sitting at home watching some television and relaxing with my husband I am noticing that my sinuses are clogged up again. I had trouble sleeping that night, due to poor airway breathing. It just was not worth it! Next time I will order the delicious arugula salad and beets without the feta.

What happened from the dairy (feta) was a “delayed” food allergy reaction. Allergy symptoms may show up hours or even a day later, after a food is well absorbed into your system. This difficulty is compounded by the fact that certain foods, such as dairy, are so prevalent in our diet that it may be eaten nearly every day. And we enjoy other foods besides dairy so wondering if other foods besides dairy are effecting your sinuses is totally normal. Yes the feta (dairy) affected my sinuses that night but I have to wonder if another food did too. The meat was delicious with wonderful spices, but sometimes spices or beef can affect the sinuses if they test positive for a food allergy reaction.

So if a food like dairy is affecting your sinuses and is the culprit for how your feel, how do you find out for sure? How do you find out which foods are increasing the severity of your sinus reaction, as well as other health challenging symptoms you are experiencing?

Freddah Bahl testimony and story

Recently, I had a food allergy test done. I wake up every morning with a runny nose. When I got the results back and had a consultation with Alane, I was shocked at some of the foods that were positive. Some of my “reactive”foods were some of my “favorite foods,” and some are considered “healthy” foods. Yes dairy was positive and yes dairy was effecting my sinuses. But there was another favorite food that showed up positive and I was very surprised, and so glad I did a food allergy test. Are you wondering what the other food was? Okay, I’ll tell you. Sauerkraut!!! I was putting it in soups, salads……..I grew up on sauerkraut – I loved frankfurters, with mustard and sauerkraut! Even though sauerkraut is a ‘healthy’ fermented food, it is not good for me!

I don’t miss the dairy based ice cream because there are other yummy substitutes like coconut milk ice cream and almond milk ice cream, which I can buy at the stores or make at home. But I sure miss my sauerkraut!!! However, I don’t miss those symptoms I was experiencing, including the runny nose. I am feeling much better since changing my diet .”

FibromyalgiaHave you ever considered that Fibromyalgia is linked to Food Allergies???

Is it a coincidence that millions of people have heart disease, cancer, diabetes and fibromyalgia??? Can you imagine that these conditions, especially Fibromyalgia pain can be linked to your diet? YES! The food you eat every day may be the culprit for your Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. It affects more than 5 million people in the United States. That’s nearly 1 in every 60 Americans. Mostly women have it, but men can too. Most people begin feeling the symptoms of fibromyalgia when they are middle aged, but symptoms can start before then.

  • Pain symptoms of fibromyalgia

    Deep muscle pain and soreness, morning stiffness, flu-like aching, radiating pain, sensitivity to touch.

  • Other symptoms of fibromyalgia

    Problems sleeping, fatigue, difficulty thinking clearly, also known as “fibro fog”, difficulty performing everyday tasks, stress and anxiety, depression, migraine headaches.

Do you know that Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune attack against your tissues?

There are some wonderful books that talk about how the immune system gets upset and starts attacking the body. The only problem is when it attacks your body it is attacking YOU!

  • Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to to call off the attack through diet, nutrition, supplements and natural ways?
  • Wouldn’t it be life- enhancing to learn how to get your body to calm down and act properly so you do not have to live with Fibromyalgia pain anymore?
  • Your body is a wonderful thing and it can be trained to heal itself naturally while turning down pain and turning up energy and vitality.

If you are suffering with Fibromyalgia symptoms, can combating Food Allergies & Intolerance’s bring about improved quality of life? YES, it can!

Eating the wrong food can be devastating to Fibromyalgia sufferers. Eating the right foods is your first and best medicine. Eating the right foods for YOU, can start YOU on the path to health and better quality of life. So, what foods are right for YOU? Just because a food is labeled a “health food,” is it right for you? What if you have a Food Allergy or Food Intolerance to a “healthy food?” Could what you eat be making your fibromyalgia worse? Yes, even a healthy food, if your immune system chooses, can cause auto immunity and thus more Fibromyalgia symptoms.

Almost any protein or other food substance can set off pain symptoms of fibromyalgia in the body, like deep muscle pain and soreness, morning stiffness, sensitivity to touch, and other symptoms. Numerous articles published in prominent medical journals confirm clinical experiences of the findings that the foods most likely to trigger autoimmune reactions are:

        1. Milk proteins (especially casein and lactalbumin) in dairy products – including whey, buttermilk solids, skim milk solids, “calcium caseinate,” “sodium caseinate,” all milk-derived cheeses, yogurt, ice cream, chocolate, etc.
2. Chicken protein – including the “light meat” and “dark meat,” as well as egg whites.
3. Wheat protein (gluten) – including breads, pastas, wheat cereals, etc.
4. Beef and other bovine-derived meats.
5. Soy protein – including tofu, tempeh, etc.
6. Corn protein.
7. “Nightshade” vegetables – tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, green (bell) peppers.

Fortunately for the millions who suffer from fibromyalgia pain, recent medical studies indicate that relief can be as close as their dinner plate. The studies also demonstrate that identification and elimination of the offending foods – a therapy completely free of cost and risk – often provides dramatic improvement, or complete remission of fibromyalgia symptoms.

Hippocrates, considered a medical leader to this day, discovered thousands of years ago, “one person’s food is another person’s poison.

To personalize YOU with the food YOU are eating, consider a food intolerance test to know for sure which foods are triggering YOUR symptoms. Yes, common inflammatory foods can cause symptoms but healthy food can too. Yes, foods like lettuce, turnips, carrots can also trigger a food reaction.

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain + Weight Loss, Atlanta, GA
“I came to meet with Alane in February 2005. I was very overweight and in a lot of pain. I could barely walk and was very concerned about losing my job! Everything was hurting and I was desperate for help. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I just knew my diet played a role in it. I started on a specific healing diet and nutrition program and only 10 days later I emailed the office that I was so happy! I lost 5 pounds and was finally able to sleep through the night without the pain waking me up. The weight is continuing to come off and the pain is improving each day! Thank you!” – Danielle
