The Truth About Food Intolerances
Show Notes

Food intolerances are proving to be a rapidly growing problem: intolerances to nightshades, so-called FODMAPs, fructose, histamine-containing foods and others. But why? And does just eliminating the food solve the problem?

We need to view food intolerances as a warning sign of the process that causes food intolerances in the first place: disruptions of bowel flora and especially small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO. Unrecognized or ignored and SIBO can lead over time to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, neurodegenerative diseases, even gastrointestinal cancers. Recognize, confirm, then manage SIBO so that you do not experience health problems later. And much or all of this can be managed on your own, although a little guidance can help.
