Pinpointing Food Sensitivities Can Slow Down the Aging Process
It’s impossible to underestimate the importance of nutrition. Food makes us feel good and fuels all aspects of our complex physiology. But what about food allergies and sensitivities? What if what we eat is adversely affecting our health?
An estimated 32 million Americans have food allergies. If you’re allergic to something, you’ve probably already explored your options and know that certain foodstuffs should be avoided.
However, millions of other people have food sensitivities, which are harder to define and therefore to assess and manage.

Symptoms of Food Intolerance
Food allergies can result in serious symptoms and even death. Soy, shellfish, milk, eggs, tree nuts and wheat are some of the more common foods that can trigger allergic reactions.
Being intolerant of foods is different. The symptoms associated with food sensitivity include:
- Intestinal gas
- Abdominal pain
- Tightening in the chest
- Nasal congestion
It can be hard to identify where particular food sensitivities might lie. The modern diet often includes composite and processed foods (common chemical additives are notorious for producing symptoms), which makes it harder to isolate which element is triggering a reaction.
The Danger of Ignoring Your Symptoms
Many people ‘soldier on’ and dismiss their food intolerance as being something they can cope with, without the need for medical intervention. However, it’s crucial that any food sensitivities are explored. Left untreated, they can contribute to a range of more serious conditions, including:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Skin conditions such as eczema
- Ear infections
- Joint pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Food intolerances and allergies can be hereditary. Anyone with a family history of food allergies, asthma, hay fever or eczema should undergo testing to identify any risk.
Even in the absence of a family history of allergies, if you experience any of the symptoms listed above, then tests can identify underlying intolerances to avoid putting your long-term health at risk.
