FOOD SENSITIVITY: HOW TO DISCOVER THE “HEALTHY” FOODS THAT CAN CAUSE DISEASE

Orange juice, accompanied by whole wheat-toast and some low fat yogurt with a banana on top, surely sounds like an ideal breakfast, isn't it? Probably not, according to medical experts, who opine that millions of Americans are “sensitive” to to these, and other everyday foods and these sensitivities give further rise to or may cause many other complications. Dairy products such as eggs, citrus fruits, wheat products, bananas, kidney and string beans; chemicals in processed foods; and such other foods that you may “crave excessively for” and may have at least three times a week or more.

In order to find out whether you are sensitive to these foods and ingredients or not, you need to exclude them from your diet for at least a month.( It is worth the effort, as you may discover that you are feeling really good,probably for the first time in years.)

However , at the end of the month,in case your health problem persists, then you may “not” be sensitive to any foods. You may continue your previous diet. In case of your feeling better, it is now time to find out which foods or ingredients that you had reduced from your diet had caused the problem.

Go back to the previous routine and start eating the foods that were excluded, but make sure that it is only one group per week. You may start eating the dairy in the first week. In case the symptoms return during that week, say after two to three days of eating a dairy product, Eureka!,your food sensitivity has been detected. In case they do not , start consuming the other food-group the week that follows. The search for the symptoms may be continued. One point to be noted :There is a possibility that you may discover your being sensitive to more than one food or a food group, say egg products and citrus fruits as well(including that cream-filled doughnut you are used to picking on your way, regularly).

It is therefore essential to reintroduce those foods and food groups, gradually. This implies that you may be you discover that you are sensitive to a food, during the first week and yet you may need to introduce another food group during week two. The process may be continued for week three. It is clear that you may have a rough time, for a month or two. Think of the rewards when you feel free of arthritis-pain or any other problem that has been persisting for years, caused by food sensitivities - which otherwise would have continued forever. Another important thing to be noted: once you have detected your sensitivity to citrus fruits, you need not give them up forever. What is crucial is that you should abstain from eating them for at least four to six months, advice doctors who feel that you can probably return to eating them, say twice a week, with a gap of at least three days between the two times. Most importantly, it is also advised that if you detect the sensitivity to more than one food group, precaution may be taken to avoid the consumption, of those groups, the same day.
