Ahead of my doctoral program – which required me to narrow down to a specialty (sugar addiction) – I had formed studied food intolerances. Hyggelig cafe København
Many books on the subject start with food reactions, then move into chemicals within our homes and offices, gasoline fumes, and more. Important as those techniques are, they’re not about nourishment.
My interest in intolerances to food has always been their link with addiction.
Lately, I “attended” a web seminar by J. J. Virgin mobile, whose first book (I believe) was on food intolerances and how to eliminate those foods to improve health insurance and lose weight. The webinar re-sparked my interest in food intolerance and addiction.
Common causes for food intolerance include chocolate, corn, soy, whole wheat (or other gluten-containing foods), peanuts, dairy, eggs, glucose and other sweeteners.
What Does Food Intolerance Appear to be?
Signs and symptoms can include headache/migraine, joint discomfort, fatigue, sleepiness, heart heart palpitations, depression, irritability, stomach aches, bloating, and many more.
Because digested food techniques through the bloodstream, the effects of an intolerance can show up almost any place in the body.
Food reactions might be the same each and every time the food is consumed, for instance a rash.
Or the reactions might vary – say, a non-itchy break outs one time and irritation with no rash another time.
The reaction might be cumulative. Maybe a tiny area of the food triggers no reaction, but a portion eaten again that day, or several days and nights in a row, does indeed causes one.
Addiction is another possible reaction which may develop over time.
What Causes Intolerancesto food?
The causes are many, but let’s keep it simple.
One cause is a genetic intolerance or a tendency toward it.
We all can become intolerant to a food we eat often or in large quantities. Overeating a food uses up enzymes specific to digesting that food, so complete digestion is prevented.
That may bring about improperly digested food contaminants moving through the intestinal tract and bloodstream, causing an immune reaction. The undigested, unabsorbed food provides no nutrients.
We are able to also become reactive to a food we eat as well as another triggering food. Hence the set of triggering foods will probably get bigger, resulting eventually in weakness.
Food Reactions May Transformation Over Time
The leading principle of the human being body is homeostasis.
Every time a trigger food is first eaten, the body endeavors to restore homeostasis by ridding itself of the offending food. It inhibits absorption by attaching antibodies to the partially broken down food while it’s in the intestine. That may efficiently eliminate the food before it can pass in the bloodstream.
