Did you know the food you eat can make you feel sick? It is estimated that 20% of the population have an adverse reaction to a certain foot that can trigger immune system responses in certain individuals which can cause undue stress on even the most healthy of bodies.
A food sensitivity, as opposed to a food allergy, happens gradually and isn’t life threatening. Symptoms of a delayed food allergy can take up to 72 hours to appear.
Seattle Naturopath Dr. Katie Disharoon uses a specialized and state of the art food sensitivity testing to identify offending foods in your diet. Food sensitivities may be caused by many factors such as stress, infections, overeating, artificial preservatives, additives, molds, pesticides, antibiotics, and environmental pollutants. Unidentified food sensitivities can then contribute to many chronic health conditions: including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, autism, ADD/ADHD, eczema, chronic ear infections, gut malabsorption, insomnia and many others.
You and Dr. Disharoon then work together to create a plan to eliminate offending foods which can improve many health problems and lead to a better quality of life.
