DEFINING FOOD SENSITIVITY

A food sensitivity is a delayed food reaction. Reaction can occur up to 72 hours after the food has been ingested making it difficult to pinpoint which food is causing the reaction. Symptoms can included bloating, headache, itching gastrointestinal discomfort, and other ailments. The symptoms produced are a result of specific antibody exposure.

Food sensitivities may be a result of repetitive eating, or lack of diversity in the diet. They are influenced by antibiotics and steroids, and possibly others medications. Cross-reactivity with environmental allergens (pollen, dust, mold, etc.) can also exacerbate food sensitivities.
