Food Allergies: Why you can’t seem to lose weight!
Counting calories and exercise are the best way to maintain a healthy body weight for most people. However, if you are susceptible to mold allergies they may not be enough to keep you looking fit.
Because all fungi have similar cellular structure, a problem with one kind can often lead to a Candida overgrowth. Candida is naturally occurring yeast, which is a form of fungi. A Candida overgrowth is disruptive to the gut, which is 70% of your immune system. When the gut is compromised it can cause numerous problems throughout the body including systemic inflammation. When that happens your body can’t perform as it was designed and metabolic performance can be impaired.
The problem lies in that Candida causes gut inflammation. That allows the stomach to absorb larger food particles than normal. The large particles trigger food allergies. Food allergies make the gut inflammations worse. The vicious cycle goes on and on building systemic inflammation.
To gain control of the Candida overgrowth you must stop consuming foods that exacerbate the problem. By pairing the Candida Diet with the ALCAT Test results you learn what foods you can and can’t eat. The dynamic result allows your body to heal itself far more quickly than if you were to just do the Candida Diet alone.
You can see for yourself this one example of this effect. This patient lost 25 pounds in one month by refraining from eating foods to which she was allergic.
*ETP refers to Dr. Dennis’ Environmental Treatment Protocol
You might be surprised at how many common foods you are consuming that are exacerbating your problem. The key is to remove these items from your diet so that your body can heal itself.
Don’t worry, this does not mean you will never be able to eat your favorite foods again. The body can become desensitized to food allergies over time by refraining from eating the foods that are a problem. The nature of your sensitivity will change the healthier you are. As your body heals, you will be able to reintroduce thing to your diet to see if you can tolerate them.
Naturally there are going to be some things that your body simply can’t handle. But isn’t it better to know what those things are so that you can avoid them and feel good again?
