Food Intolerance

A) What is Food Intolerance

As the saying goes, "I can hardly tolerate". The body system for some reason ceases to consider some foods "friendly" to it.
Every time we consume them, instead of metabolizing it as it should, it recognizes them as enemies and attack them with its immune. After being attacked, he will give a fight and in order to give this battle he has to spend energy, which he will get from this "big cauldron" that is his reserve and is called metabolism. So we have losses from our metabolism. So our metabolism gets lower. So fewer burning calories. So it’s easier to put weight on.

The second problem that intolerant foods create in our body is the creation of toxins due to the incomplete metabolism of these foods. These toxins tend to be deposited in layers where they accumulate when they exceed the limits of our body's strength at a certain point and they are responsible for pathological problems that we are starting to experience and that we will never think to blame our diet.

These symptoms are detailed below.

The conditions under which food intolerance is manifested are still unknown, but there are only few possible mechanisms such as:

  • Reaction to chemicals and preservatives in most foods today
  • Digestive system infections
  • Over-consumption of food
  • Monotone diet
  • Overconsumption of antibiotics
  • Excessive use of pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides, hormones, etc.
  • Contamination of the environment and the groundwater
  • New technologies in food preservation

B) Differences from allergy

Food intolerance and allergy are often confused. They may be both manifestations of our immune system, but they mobilize completely different mechanisms with different time sequences by giving different clinical picture and symptoms.
