Your digestive system is the core of many conditions. Your immune cells are located in your gut. Optimizing your gut, improves many immune responses. Food sensitivity is a term that usually refers to delayed immune reactions to foods. There are many clinical benefits of eliminating IgG reactive foods from your diet. IgG food sensitivities have been implicated in migraine headaches, eczema, anxiety/depression, joint pain and irritable bowel syndrome (alternating diarrhea and constipation). Bloating and indigestion are also common food sensitivity reactions, as is fatigue. Continued consumption of reactive foods may contribute to weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight. IgG food reactions are delayed and can take up to 48 hours to present, which makes it difficult to determine which food is responsible for the reaction without doing testing.
- 120+ IgG foods (non-vegetarian) or 200+ IgG foods
- 160+ IgG vegetarian foods
- extra Candida
Many reactive foods would demonstrate the presence of leaky gut syndrome. Which means that toxins from the foods you eat get into your blood stream and therefore, create symptoms that you are experiencing. By avoiding those high and moderate reactive foods allows us to then heal the digestive system using probiotics and other herbal/ amino acid supplements.
Elevated IgG antibodies to Candida are often found when someone has a fungal infection of some sort. For example, vaginal yeast infection, ‘jock itch’, and ringworm. Consuming too many sugar-rich foods can contribute to overgrowth of Candida. Symptoms associated with Candida overgrowth include:
- clouded thinking
- menstrual pain
- vaginal yeast infections
