Introduction to the symptoms of food intolerance and food-related diseases.
While food intolerance and food-related diseases. varies from person to person.
There are a few common ingredients often associated with food sensitivity.
But generally refers to reactions than a food allergy, learn how to protect your gut, what is a microbiome diet?
What is the microbiome diet?
The Microbiome is the mini-ecosystem in our gut that is the basis of good health and immunity over a lifetime. There are specific diets to help maintain a healthy balance in your gut system.
Discovering food intolerance symptoms.
Are you experiencing having a food intolerance?
Don’t you hate it, when you just enjoyed having a good meal?
Suddenly you feel having some symptoms.
Such as :
- Tummy pain or
- Even skin rashes
Consult your Doctor as a recommended precaution.
And, obviously, you are wondering what’s cause you have these painful symptoms, right?.
Food intolerance can be caused by a number of factors, so its best to see your doctor.
List of typical food illness causes
- Dairy products, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt
- Food additives like aspartame
- Flavor enhancer, such as (MSG)
- Monosodium glutamate
- Some fruits, such as:
- Wine, because of the sulfates
Other potential triggers:
However, dairy products such as milk and cheese cause diarrhea for some people.
While others react badly to wheat and high-fiber foods
What is a food-related disease?
Well, more than 250 Foodborne illness is causing by consuming
contaminated foods and beverages.
Many disease-causing microbes or pathogens can contaminate foods.
You see, there are many types of Foodborne illness.
Most Foodborne Diseases are:
- Infections, caused by a variety of bacteria
- and parasites
What are 3 common causes of Foodborne Illness?
- Improper cooking temperatures of food
- Improper hot/cold holding temperatures of potentially hazardous food
- Dirty and/or contaminated utensils and equipment
What is the major cause of foodborne illness in the United States?
It is bacteria and viruses that cause the most illness, hospitalizations, and deaths in the United States are:
- Salmonella, Norovirus
- (Norwalk virus) Campylobacter
Astonishing to hear that each year an estimated 48 million people in the United States experience a foodborne illness
Foodborne illness can cause about 3,000 deaths.
But food intolerance is a detrimental reaction.
Often, delayed to a food beverage, food additive or
A compound found in foods that produce symptoms.
In one or more body organs and system
But generally refers to reactions other than food allergies.
Precautions for cooking the right way:
At home make sure the food is cooked properly to the correct temperature.
Keep the kitchen working area clean at all time to avoid cross-contamination.
Wash your hands frequently.
Use disposable gloves when prepping meat fish and seafood products.
Do not use the same kitchen towel for cleaning and cooking.
Use only FDA approved cleaning products to avoid poisoning.
Use a spoon (only one time) to taste your food. Not your finger.
Restrict kitchen access to people and guests with a history of food allergy.
Types of food intolerances.
There are actually some other types of food intolerances such as
- Dairy, lactose is a sugar found in milk and dairy products.
- Gluten is the general name given to protein that wheat has.
But how to react to food intolerance and food-related diseases?
The best suggestion I can tell you is to do an elimination diet to figure out what foods you are sensitive to.
As I said before, food sensitivities cause inflammation and might lead to further damage to the gut wall.
But, generally speaking, food intolerance symptoms are less serious compared to allergies and often limited to digestive problems.
- Bloated stomach after eating
- Difficulty losing weight
- Excess gas
- Stinky gas
Some statistics from the C.D.C
According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention ( C D C ) food sensitivities and allergies are on the rise.
Some experts are telling you.
Because of what chemicals used in the industrial food production play role in the prevalence of food allergies.
Sadly things are not any better in the last decade.
According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal: “A Striking Rise in Serious Allergy Cases”
Insurance claim data finds that the rate of severe allergic reactions to foods like peanuts rises nearly five times over the past decade.
Also, the number of children with food allergies went up 18% from 1997 to 2007
In 2007 3 million kids younger than age 18 had a food or digestive allergy.
I would like to share a story with you about that young boy
He is an eleven years old boy but already had to deal with a lot because, he’s allergic to nuts, fish, shellfish, all legumes, bananas, and spinach.
He’s also allergic to many antibiotics and has environmental allergies including asthma, eczema, and exercise-and heat-induced reactions.
Life for this boy isn’t easy
But he’s learned how to help others with his story
His parents found out that he was allergic to nuts at the age of two.
When he was eight years old some more test were done from the laboratory
He was positive for fish, but salmon allergy level was low
So later, at Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital, he did an oral challenge for salmon which is when he eats the food to see if he react
He felt fine, afterward, and then with his mother went back home.
In bed that night, he woke ups feeling very itchy.
Then suddenly he was burning on the inside
he walked into his parents’ room and, as they switched on the lights, they saw larges hives and swelling all over his body.
Obviously, that was the reaction to the salmon.
His mom ran for EpiPen, she gave him the shot and she called 911.
At the hospital, after the ambulance ride. The doctor gave him another shot of epinephrine
Over the next days, he took a lot of pf prednisone, and, Benadryl
His life today comes with many restrictions.
His family doesn’t eat in restaurants.
With so many allergies its hard for him to find a safe place.
His mom does the cooking, and, they eat a lot of fresh foods and nut-free products.
For him to avoid all his allergy triggers can be challenging, don’t you think?
Severe allergies can be scary at times, but he knows what to do to keep safe.
He always carries an auto-injector, like EpiPen.
Many questions, some answers.
Can food allergy go away in adults?
For many, the food allergy never goes away.
Do some people outgrow allergies?
Researchers say that between around 70 percent of young children will outgrow a milk or egg allergy by age 16. also that 20 percent of children will outgrow a peanut allergy.
What food products are allergy triggers?
Why do I have allergies?
The exact causes of allergy symptoms are still being investigated.
However, it is known that these are due to immune systems pathways that lead to inflammation.
After an encounter with allergenic proteins in the environment.
These proteins are often from.
- Animal Dander
- Insect venom
- Certain foods
Food allergy factors:
The Western (high Sugar), low fiber) Diet
One theory is to blame the modern diet. Unfortunately, people don’t understand the dangers of consuming:
The Western (high Sugar), low fiber) Diet.
One theory is to blame the modern diet.
Unfortunately, people don’t usually understand that consuming
- Too much sugar
- Unhealthy Fats
Can have a serious impact on your microbiome.
A microbiome is the mini-ecosystem in our gut that is the basis of good health and immunity over a lifetime.
More about allergy and food born illnesses.
Much of our conventionally grown produce is genetically modified and/or laden with pesticides and herbicides.
And farm animals are pumped full of drugs and antibiotics.
Let’s talk about Gut Bacteria- The Forgotten Organ! That you need to treat well.
Do you know how many bacteria you host in your gut?
100 trillion bacteria, that’s right! and you really need to be very nice to them.
Because your health depends on it!
They live in your intestines.
Here is a case study.
In one study Published in the Journal Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers compared the gut bacteria of fifteen children in an urban area in Italy
With fourteen children in rural Africa.
The diversity of bacteria in these two groups was dramatically different
Why the difference?
I am telling you its all about diet
The diet of the rural African children was low in fat and rich in plant-based foods.
All of which were grown and harvested locally by villagers.
These children ate high amounts of ancient grains.
So they got plenty of the complex carbohydrates:
- Non-animal protein
- some Chicken
- And even termites
- Their occasional meat intake
This group had a “richer” more favorable microbiome of bacteria strain in their guts
Not surprising, since ” good ” gut bacteria thrive on fiber.
The Italian kid’s diets.
Were high in animal proteins, sugar, and starch
And low in fiber
The type of diet typically seen in modernized countries
They had a less rich, and ultimately less favorable microbiome profile
Then the kids in rural Africa.
No big surprise here, since ” bad ” bacteria loves to eat sugar.
And one of the consequences this reduction in ” good ” bacteria and overall microbial richness?

Food Allergy factor # 1: Hygiene Hypothesis
Here another potential factor on the rise of food allergies is
What’s called the hygiene hypothesis
Our nation’s obsession with cleanliness
Is starting to take a negative for sure!
Staying germ-free can prevent the spread of infection
But the downside is that it could be making the younger generation more susceptible to all sorts of allergies.
Food Allergy Factor # 2– Early Exposure
A final Theory that may explain the rise of Food Allergies is that
Children aren’t exposed to certain foods at an early enough age
Many doctors recommend waiting until age two or three to introduce kids to some of the most common allergens like:
- Cow Dairy
- Tree Nuts
There is growing body evidence.
That early introduction of foods such as peanuts, fish and eggs at an appropriate age, might be beneficial in preventing food allergy and that delaying food introduction might contribute to allergic disease.

What is the Definition of the Human Microbiome?
The human body microbiome is defined as the collection of microbes-bacteria, viruses, and single-cell eukaryotes
That inhabits the human body
Bacteria are often associated with infections
The bacteria that colonize the surface and insides of our bodies are essential for life
Here are some suggestions to follow.
The microbiome diet will consist
To eat a lot of fresh, whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, are terrific microbiome food
You could also eat a diet full of whole fresh food with moderate amounts of chicken and fish, the small amount of beef or lamb.
Start improving your gut today. Give your gut the best foods for gut health, so it can do its job and keep you well
All things considered, eat whole unprocessed foods, eliminate food allergies. Treat any infections, replenish your digestive enzymes.
There are simple things you can do on a day-to-day basis to maintain a very happy gut microbiome.
