More than 60% of our bodies’ immune system is located in the intestines. Protecting the integrity of the gut is essential to prevent disease and ensure a long life in good health. Hidden food allergies compromise the intestines, trigger inflammation in the lining of the gut, weaken the immune system, and promote ill health. Hidden food allergies reduce your body’s ability to absorb vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Illness begins with a compromised digestive system, indigestion, bloating, gas, reflux and retention of water (phony fat) commonly caused by hidden food allergies. Left untreated hidden food allergies can lead to Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, eczema, lupus, fibromyalgia, MS, heart disease, and other chronic disease. Researchers have found over 100 symptoms and 150 diseases linked to hidden food allergies. Unfortunately, most doctors don’t recognize the connection between hidden food allergies and disease. Consequently, many people end up taking unnecessary medications, or worse yet body parts are removed unnecessarily. At the Other Side of Medicine Health Center, we have witnessed thousands of people recover from common and serious illness by identifying and eliminating their hidden food allergies.
Our approach is simple. A patient history and exam will determine if hidden food allergies are the cause of your health problems. A simple blood test is performed to detect hidden food allergies to create a personalized diet. Next, the offending foods are eliminated for three months. Specific nutritional supplements are recommended to repair the damage to the lining of the intestinal tract. The body is set in motion to heal itself. Results: You lose weight without trying and illness is reversed because the cause of the symptoms is removed. In three months, the offending foods can usually be reintroduced on a rotating basis. Natural medicine works well when it is applied properly.
