I’ve been writing a lot about gut dysbiosis lately, and for good reason. Get rid of gut dysbiosis, and you can shave 2-13 inches from your waist. It’s why we’re holding a free seminar on the topic on April 28. But I’ll get to that in a second.
In this post, I’m going to once again touch on the root cause of gut dysbiosis, but I’d also like to discuss what can result from the condition: Food sensitivities.
Food is a sensitive issue in more ways than one
Suggest a change to someone’s diet, and they’ll throw a fork at you. (Or worse. I could tell you stories…)
Yes, we love our favorite foods. But do they ever return the love?
Most do. But there are some occasions when they don’t. Especially when you have a food sensitivity, which is the result of gut dysbiosis.
If you read some of my earlier posts, you’ll recall that gut dysbiosis is a result of an imbalance of the yeasts and bacteria, called flora, in the gastrointestinal tract. When this flora is out of balance, it can hamper digestion and cause a whole host of nasty reactions, including acid reflux, gas, bloating and more.
It can also lead to food sensitivities, which is a whole new can of worms.
Not an allergy, a sensitivity
Food sensitivities are not true allergies (they are not necessarily life-long). True allergies are caused by an IgE (immunoglobulin E) reaction in the body that can cause anaphylactic shock and death.
Food sensitivities are caused by non-IgE immune reactions toward foods, either because of improper digestion, damage to the gut lining or immune dysfunctions.
When your body has a food sensitivity, it develops a reaction to certain foods. And the types of reactions can be quite unexpected. You may suffer from a runny nose or congestion. Energy or mood fluctuations. Joint pain. Indigestion. Even headaches.
Ultimately, these food sensitivities lead to weight gain.
Body craves “the bad stuff”
Remember, food sensitivities are an immune reaction. Your body is ready to put up its dukes against the unwanted food.
That unwanted food has antigens. These are the things that prompt your body to produce antibodies to fight them off, and if you eat a lot of the wrong things, your body will crank out the antibodies.
Soon your body makes more and more of these antibodies, and if you don’t bind with those antigens, you’ll feel lousy. In other words, if you don’t keep feeding those foods, you’ll feel cruddy.
It feels like a craving, but it’s almost like an addiction: You don’t get your fix, you don’t feel so good.
We’re doomed…or are we?
See how we get sucked in to these bad foods? First, gut dysbiosis causes the flora to become imbalanced, and then it leads to food sensitivities, which compel us to eat more of what’s hurting us.
No wonder people have so many problems losing weight.
How do we get off this road to rotundity? We’ll detail the ways to identify gut dysbiosis, and then how to eliminate it, in our FREE April 28th teleseminar “Gut Dysbiosis: Don’t Trust Your Gut.” You can register when you click here: http://moourl.com/losethatbelly
