When the food harms you…
Many people react badly to even the healthiest foods. They put on weight even though they seemingly eat good foods. The probable cause of such issue is food intolerance.
Food intolerance is the wrong response of the body to the food that is consumed. The proven method of treating food intolerance is the LEAP program.
For certain types of food the immune system reacts in the same way as to bacteria or viruses. Then the inflammatory mediators are released to the blood, such as histamine or cytokines. Combating undesirable food also weakens the healthy cells of the body. This results in numerous negative reactions. To successfully fight food intolerance, you should stop eating harmful foods.
What are the risks of untreated intolerance?
The effect of untreated intolerance may be excessive weight gain or unnatural weight loss. Food intolerances can cause inflammation of the intestines, abnormal absorption and damage to the intestinal epithelium. They also contribute to the appearance of many disorders not apparently related to the diet.
How do intolerant foods affect overweight?
Research has shown that people who have identified and removed reactive foods from their diets have lost weight and eliminated such problems as:
- water retention.
- abnormal fat metabolism (lipolysis).
- eating addiction, excessive appetite
If you have noticed any of the following conditions, you should consider performing medical examinations in the area of food intolerance:
- digestive disorders – bloating, nausea, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, anus itching
- abdominal cramps
- physical or mental fatigue – especially after a meal or after a well-slept night
- unstable weight – swelling or water retention, tendency to body weight fluctuation, weight reduction problems, even when you are on a diet and count calories
- uncontrollable appetite – crave for sweets and carbohydrates
- allergic ‘swollen eyes’ – dark circles, swollen eyes, under eye pouches
- excessive mucus secretion – chronically congested nose, nasal discharge, excessive mucus in the airways, frequent blowing of the nose, clogged or itchy ears.
- chronic pain – migraine or other headaches, myalgia, arthralgia
- sleep disorders – somnolence during the day, insomnia at night
- emotional, mental, behavioral symptoms – sudden mood changes, irritation for no apparent reason, hyperactivity, difficulty with concentration, inexplicable fears or depression..
As many as 75 different health problems, are caused by mediators released from the blood cells of the immune system. These disorders result from the action of various chemical compounds triggered during the fight of the body with harmful foods. If we eliminate these from our diets we will become much healthier.
Most patients notice increased energy, improved digestion, weight loss, reduced appetite, reduced pain, improved thinking clarity, and improved well-being.
