Food allergies and intolerance can be easily confused. There is no such thing as a food allergy intolerance. An allergy and intolerance are two different events in the human body.
Allergy intolerance is an incorrect term. Actually, allergy and intolerance should not be used to describe the same event in the human body. Many people think that an adverse reaction in their body that they link to a certain food is an allergy, though it may be an intolerance.
The difference between and allergy and intolerance is that an intolerance happens within the digestive system and an allergy happens within the bloodstream.
An intolerance, happening within the digestive system is a simple inability to digest…or tolerate…the particular food. An intolerance mainly causes symptoms associated with the digestive system such as gas, bloating, indigestion, reflux, heartburn, diarrhea, alternating diarrhea/constipation, pain, spasms or vomiting.
The main food intolerances are to dairy, gluten (wheat, oats, barley and rye) and fructose containing foods (fruit, added sugar of any kind, corn, beets, carrots, onions, peas, tomatoes, eggplant, sweet potato, turnips, parsnips and winter squash).
A food allergy happens within the bloodstream when foods…not fully digested…cross over from the inside of the digestive system through unhealthy tissue and into the bloodstream. Once there, the body will not recognize the not fully digested molecules and the immune system gets involved.
First, the immune system creates an antibody to that specific food. Each time the antibody comes into contact with those molecules, chemistry is generated that has far reaching effects of the human body. This chemistry may have consequences to the bowel, but the mostly widely accepted understanding of this chemistry is that it creates inflammation in the body.
If you suffer from an inflammatory condition…of any kind…it is important to identify your food allergies and to heal you digestive system to prevent the foods from crossing over into your bloodstream.
You can be allergic to ANY food, regardless of whether or not you think it’s a healthy food or whether or not it’s organic. It’s all about ANY food that crosses over to the bloodstream through and unhealthy digestive system. Food allergies go away in a few months and intolerances may never go away.
