Your Foods May Be Making You Sick

by in Uncategorized March 1, 2019

Did you know that the foods you eat could be responsible for dozens of illnesses and chronic conditions?

What you eat sends a very important message to your body. In the United States, we spend more than two hours per day eating, and we each consume nearly one ton of food per year. Not coincidentally, more than half of the U.S. population suffers from unsuspected food reactions that can cause or complicate health problems.

March is Gut Health Month at Apple Healthcare, and we are focusing on helping you improve your digestive health.

When evaluating your health, it’s important to examine what your body is taking in. Food sensitivity could be at the root of conditions such as:

  • Eczema
  • Gas
  • Joint pain
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Bloating
  • Bowel dysfunction
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Congestion
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Apple Healthcare uses food sensitivity testing to help get to the root cause of chronic, unexplained illnesses. We work with Dunwoody Labs to administer a comprehensive set of dietary antigen testing called a food sensitivity profile, which detects adverse reactions to 88 foods. Studies have shown that in many cases, headaches and chronic gastrointestinal symptoms decrease or disappear when specific foods are identified and removed from a person’s diet.

These tests are covered by most insurance providers.

If your test results show you have food sensitivities, it means your immune system is attacking certain foods. Treatment could include removing foods from your diet and/or using supplements such as enzymes, probiotics, and antimicrobial herbal formulas to strengthen your gut lining.
