Hidden Food Sensitivities
Detection and Correction

Hidden food sensitivities occur when there are adverse responses to the ingestion of certain foods. The reaction may or may not be controlled and influenced by the immune system.

Body Basics

The reaction can be caused by a protein, starch, or other food component, or by a hidden agent that is added to the food during processing, such as a colourant or preservative. Undiagnosed allergies, intolerances, and reactions affect more than half the population. Almost everyone has at least one food sensitivity.

However, many people are not aware that there symptoms may be caused by inappropriate food choices. They continue to eat the same foods, day after day, never getting complete relief from supplements or lifestyle changes.

Program Description

Three Types of Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities are of three basic types:

A. Food Allergies: An allergy is an inappropriate response by the body's immune system to a substance that is not normally harmful. Substances that provoke allergic responses are called allergens. Research indicates that the number of people with allergies is skyrocketing and will probably continue to grow.  

Food allergies have been implicated in a wide range of medical conditions, affecting virtually every part of the body, from mildly uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • indigestion, and
  • gastritis,

to severe illnesses, such as:

  • celiac disease,
  • arthritis, and
  • chronic infection.

Allergies have also been linked to numerous disorders of the nervous system, including depression, anxiety, and chronic fatigue.

B. Food Intolerances: However, intolerances are different. An intolerance is an inability to digest or metabolize a particular constituent in a food due to the lack of a digestive enzyme in the body, which can occur early in life or later in life with age. Without the particular enzyme the food will not be broken down properly in the small intestine. 

In addition, food intolerances can result in a condition known as the leaky gut syndrome whereby the lining of the small intestine becomes porous and undigested, larger-sized food particles are allowed to pass through into the bloodstream. This in turn invokes an allergic response from the immune system to these foreign invaders. So, an intolerance can lead to one or more food allergies. 

C. Food Reactions: On the other hand, a food reaction is an adverse response to one or more artificial additives in a particular food. The additives cause inflammation in the mucosal lining of the small intestine, or further down the GI tract in the large intestine. This inflammation can lead to a host of digestive disorders and diseases.

Artificial additives such as:

  • flavour enhancers,
  • colourings,
  • preservatives,
  • stabilizers, and
  • sweeteners

are hidden in processed and packaged foods.

In addition, pesticides such as:

  • herbicides,
  • insecticides, and
  • fungicides

are sprayed on conventionally grown fruits and vegetables, and are usually invisible to the naked eye, as well as hard to remove. Almost any food has the ability to cause an adverse reaction, depending on one's individual sensitivity to it.

How it Works in Case You are Not Familiar with the Process
