Food sensitivities occur when there is an over-reaction of the immune system to a food or food chemical producing symptoms anywhere in the body.
- Lucy S., former patient
Food that is broken down or partially broken down enters into the digestive tract where it then encounters the immune system. The immune system must act quickly on the food particle and decide: Friend or Foe?
Food sensitivities develop as the immune system works on overdrive to protect the body from harmful invaders. If an attack is mounted, the immune system releases its chemical warfare called chemical mediators to help protect the body. Chemical mediators promote inflammation, which can potentially impact any area of the body and produce symptoms.
