What is a food intolerance?

Food intolerance is your digestive system responding, not your immune system responding and occurs when something in food irritates your digestive system or when you are unable to break down the food. This could be due to an Intolerance to lactose; lactose is found in milk and other dairy products, and is the most common food intolerance. Food groups are the most common intolerances found and over 2million people in the UK are living with a diagnosed food intolerance.

There are also many factors that may contribute to food intolerance. In the case of lactose intolerance, the person lacks the chemicals, called enzymes, necessary to properly digest certain proteins found in food.  Food intolerances are usually caused by increased permeability or “leaky gut” the gut forms a vital barrier between the external environment and our blood stream and internal systems, and has a huge role to play in managing our immune system.

Leaky gut (gut permeability – the gut lining is made up of cells called enterocytes. In between each one is a tiny gap called a ‘tight junction’ which is strictly regulated by your body to only allow molecules of a certain size through.  Certain food (as with food intolerances), medications and medical conditions can cause the gaps in between the enterocytes to become larger, allowing bigger molecules to pass through and into the blood stream.  Once larger molecules are able to pass through, undigested food particles, bacteria and other waste products can “leak” through into the blood stream, causing the body to react in an immune response, which is why you suffer what can be some debilitating symptoms.

Once we establish the foods you are intolerant to, we can eliminate them from your diet for several months, whilst administering a thorough cleanse and detox, plus re-introduction of good bacteria and digestive enzymes to repair and replenish your gut health, once we have undertaken this process it may then be possible to re-introduce the foods that you were originally intolerant to.

When I myself was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I can remember feeling quite isolated and lonely; I was also pretty depressed and lived day by day with chronic pain, amongst other things. I remember my numerous trips to the doctors, and numerous prescriptions for pain killers that never worked. Tablets unfortunately are the doctors only and first line of treatment that doctors have; there are however, so many more things that we can undertake to help ourselves.

Working with your health

The human body is the most ingenious assembly of purposeful components you will find on earth.

Beneath the skin and tissue, we find muscles, nerves, a circulatory system for the blood, which works with a pump called our heart, glands, vital organs, and that marvellous system of bones called the skeleton.

All of which can be damaged and affected by stress!

Working with your mind

The brain is the central organ of the nervous system. Everything that we do or consume affects our brains, which in turn affects our whole being.

The mind is a receptacle for everything we experience throughout our entire life.  Through learnt / instinctive behaviour we undertake the same mistakes.

The mind can be ‘re-programmed’ with careful suggestion and techniques. This helps us let go of mental and physical problems that hold us back from moving forward and achieving total well-being.

Working with your well-being

Your physical and mental wellbeing affects how you project yourself, which affects how others perceive and treat you. All of which can affect your personal and professional life.

Our bodies and minds can become ill with stress related issues.

We help you to find your energy and to learn mechanisms and techniques to change your condition. This allows you to become physically and mentally energised, and well.

A total well-being package for life.
