Tom teaches about why allergies and intolerances are more and more common in our population today and how those statistics are directly related to the food we eat as well as our surroundings.
Intolerances In Our Society
On Today’s show we about why allergies and intolerances are on the rise. Tom shares which foods he finds are the most problematic foods for a number of symptoms and which foods are most helpful at eliminating symptoms. We go through details of the elimination diet—how and why it works. There are a number of different intolerances that we can develop to different foods. If you think you have an intolerance to something, consult your doctor to get a proper diagnosis and discuss ways to treat it. You can also consult your doctor for a number of ways to help you handle your intolerance without having to make drastic changes to your lifestyle.
