Top Five Uncommon Signs of Food Sensitivities



Posted by: Ruth Thompson RHN, RNCP, ROHP, MSW  at 14:15 December  4, 2015

The most common signs of food sensitivities are digestive problems such as: bloating, irregularity, excess gas, and nausea. But food sensitivities—also called intolerances—can show up in other ways not typically connected to diet.

Five signs of food sensitivities not related to digestion that I see repeatedly are: rashes, headaches, sinus congestion, asthma, and food cravings.  All of these reactions represent the loss of healthy balance which comes from eating foods that the body does not tolerate.  

It is disturbing to me that these signs and symptoms are usually treated with medications or, worse still, ignored.

In a series of blogs, I will reveal how these five symptoms can be related to food, and what can be done to identify or rule out food(s) as the culprit.  First blog on rashes.
