Who We Help

Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities also known as food intolerances, are very common today.  They differ from true food allergies.  Food allergies usually result in a fast and severe reaction to the food exposure such as hives or anaphylaxis.  Sensitivities tend to be more of a delayed reaction ranging from 48-72 hours after.

Often people suffering from these sensitivities may not even be aware that their symptoms are caused by the food they are eating.

You can experience symptoms such as:

 

  • Bloating

  • Mood changes

  • Painful joints

  • Fatigue

  • Headache

  • Diarrhea

  • Stomach Pain

 They usually happen due to lacking the enzyme needed to break down that food or because of a dysbiosis of the gut that led to leaky gut.

Here at The Medicine Tree, we offer the stool test, by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory, called “GI Map” that quickly identifies the source of your food sensitivities, alongside the expert interpretation of our on-site Master Nutrition Therapist.  

 

Many people turn to food sensitivity testing but this method does not get to the root cause.  Correcting the microbiome of the gut and healing leaky gut is the first step to overcoming food sensitivities.  Five Element Acupuncture and properly prescribed Chinese herbal medicine are natural, non-invasive, non habit-forming, effective methods for further helping to heal the gut and treat the many annoying symptoms stemming from the gut.
