The Science of Gut Reactions: How Food Intolerances Work

office girl sitting on chair wearing corporate attire with stomach painIf you have a literal gut reaction to certain foods, you may have a food intolerance. Unlike other reactions like allergies or food sensitivities, which are related to the immune system, food intolerances happen when the body’s gut causes a reaction because it is unable to break something down. A prime example of this would be lack of digestive enzymes.

Food intolerances lead to bloating, diarrhea, nausea, gas, and similar symptoms. Through discussion of these symptoms, along with talk of diet and stool testing, Gabrielle looks to identify your body’s digestive functions and abilities.

How to Solve Your Food Intolerances

If your body is unable to manufacture enzymes, produce hydrochloric acid, or perform similar digestive functions, then we can augment what you need with certain supplements and practices.

One of the most effective ways to improve food intolerances is through mindful eating that slows you down and helps your body’s digestive system focus on the functions it needs to complete.

People often work, drive, engage in stressful conversations, or watch violent shows on TV while eating. Instead of doing these things, Gabrielle recommends you take deep breaths and try to relax your nervous system before and during each meal and to sit down in one location to be more intentional.
