Did you know that food allergies can have a huge impact on how much energy you have?
You may experience energy lulls throughout the day or just wake up in the morning not fully rested.
Either way, you can be sure that by continuing to eat food that your body cannot fully digest you will dampen your energy and eventually tax your organs.
What this means for you is:
- less productive days
- faster aging (more wrinkles, less flexibility, loss of muscle tone)
- dull skin and eyes because your liver is filtering out way more than it should
- more and more food allergies
- bloating, gas, burping, constipation, diarrhea and potentially even leaky gut
- poor sleep quality
When you are experiencing a food allergy your body has more work to do. Your liver has to filter out the byproducts caused from an immune reaction, which means that you have more susceptibility to getting the common cold or flu.
How can you tell if you are allergic to something or not?
There are many food allergy tests out there, but the best and most effective is the Elimination Diet. Basically, you take a week and eliminate all the common food allergens. After 7 days, you begin reintroducing those foods back in while recording your results. Based on how your body reacts, you can determine how well your body is dealing with each of those foods.
The elimination diet is not difficult to do once you know all the right steps. Make sure you have the proper support and understanding of the elimination diet before you attempt it yourself so that you can get accurate results. Ultimately, this will help you achieve outstanding energy and focus as you eat in a way that is supportive of your own body and digestive capability.
