Do you suffer after every meal and wonder what it is that you must be ingesting that is causing you to feel this way? There are millions of Americans suffering with food allergies and food sensitivities than ever before! Why is this? Well, our crops and food in general is so processed today with so many added chemicals and preservatives that were not actually eating “real” food anymore, but engineered food to make us think that we are. While all this processed food tastes really well it’s detrimental to our bodies.
Food Sensitivity and Irritable Bowel Diagnosis is so common but they really need to be separated for accuracy and distinction. More times than not, an individual will go to a medical doctor for complaints of stomach pain, discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, etc. What do they get diagnosed with? Irritable Bowel Syndrome is their new diagnosis and the treatment in the allopathic community is to give them prescription drugs to rid their body of the pain. However, this does nothing to solve the issue; in fact it only causes more problems on top of an already serious condition. More times than not, these individuals are suffering with either a true food allergy or a food sensitivity causing the symptoms. DABCI doctors look for this common pattern.
A DABCI stands for the diplomat of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists. These are Chiropractic physicians that take over 300 hours of continued education in the area of internal medicine. They focus on the patient’s functional capabilities rather than just their symptoms. So how do they test for this type of condition? A food sensitivity panel is the gold standard. There are a variety of testing companies available to do this type of testing including: Allcot laboratories and Immunolabs. Both of which will test over a hundred different types of foods and the degree of sensitivity to them. They will then teach the patient what foods to eat, which foods to eliminate, and how to maintain a healthy digestive tract with supplements such as probiotics and Intenzyme Forte to help heal the gut. The Intenzyme Forte if used for digestive purposes will be taken with meals; if it is for inflammation then it can be taken twenty minutes prior to the meal of two hours post.
