In this video, exercise physiologist and nutritional biochemist John Berardi discusses the subject of food allergies and intolerances – a health issue that seem to be on the rise in our stressful contemporary lives.
As he explains, eating foods that don’t agree with us can impact our gastrointestinal system significantly, causing a cascade of effects that inflict damage elsewhere in our body.
The gold standard for confirming such sensitivities are elimination diets. These remove certain foods from our diet temporarily, giving us the opportunity to re-introduce them in a controlled environment, and to trace any symptoms to their source.
