Gastrointestinal diseases are near and dear to my heart, both as an RD and personally.
Not many folks escape this life without having a GI issue, OR, a downstream effect of a GI issue. Let me give a few examples. You have migraine headaches but maybe didn’t know that 98% of them are food related, via a type 4 hypersensitivity immune reaction. Type 4 reactions can be delayed up to 72 hours…cause and effect is nearly impossible without the right kind of test. You get hives or skin rashes. Your nails are brittle. You have fatigue but ‘nothing is wrong with you’. You’re depressed ‘for no good reason’. You have asthma or an auto-immune disease like Type 1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis but never suspected that food might be involved in any of these. Unless you see a functional medicine or natural medicine provider, no one has ever talked to you about the link between these. Call 517-290-6041 to know how to heal your gut!
