Food sensitivities were the final missing puzzle piece to Amy's symptoms.
Starting off with 71 symptoms, Amy is down to 68, which leaves only 4 left: hiccups and burps after certain meals, itchy skin, itchy scalp, and some lingering acid reflux.
However, after much diligent work, Amy has recognized that these symptoms are not Candida related but instead are reactions to certain foods.
Candida causes leaky gut. And leaky gut causes food intolerances.
Undigested or poorly digested food particles make their way through the walls of the intestinal lining (because it has literally become leaky). These proteins make their way into the blood stream to trigger an immune response.
After time your immune system begins to recognize these food particles as pathogens and whenever you eat these foods you trigger a stress response in the body, the immune system is activated and a histamine (allergic) reaction occurs.
The symptoms to a food sensitivity will be different in everyone. Some, like Amy , experience burping, acid reflux, others can get headaches, achy joints, fatigue, and even itchy skin or breakouts.
You can order a lab test like Amy did to find results. Cyrex labs is highly recommend by functional medicine doctors and health professionals , Nora Gedgaduas of Primal Body Primal Mind, and Dr. David Perlmutter MD Grain Brain and Brian Maker both speak very highly of this lab.
Be cautious with results, false negatives are common, however positives are most often always positive.
Top 5 allergens for people are: gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and eggs.
But definitely not limited to these foods. As you've seen in Amy's video you can trigger an immune reaction in your body with almost anything from mandarin oranges to kidney beans.
Thank you again Amy for wearing your heart on your sleeve and sharing such a vulnerable part of yourself with us. You are an inspiration to us all!
