Food Allergies

FYI...Most food allergies occur due to leaky gut syndrome. This is when food particles that are only partially digested reach the blood stream. Undigested food particles are toxic to our body because they are not in the form that your body can use. The immune system is sensitized to protect you from the insult. You have to eliminate the offender from your diet for 1 to 3 months and take action steps to restore the health of your digestive tract.

1.  Replenish good bacteria - probiotics
2.  Remove excessive sympathetic nerve irritation to digestive system - usually due to tightness in mid and low back.
3.  Stimulate parasympathetic nerve flow by removing irritations in the neck.  This releases the Vagus nerve that is responsible for proper digestion, relaxation, and sleep.
4.  Manage stressful events in your life - Identify stressors and categorize them in terms of how they make you feel emotionally.  Then start a plan to get those stressors under control.
