Food allergies are caused by chronic inflammation inside the small intestine. The inflammation leads to damage which inhibits proper digestion. This can be caused by Candida or irritation from bacterial or parasitic byproducts. It can be caused by an extra thick layer of mucus that prevents contact between the enzymes and the food. Also, folic acid or vitamin B12 deficiency.
Fermentation starts happening lower in the digestive tract as the improperly digested food reaches the large intestine.
Since the majority of digestion and nutrient absorption happens in the small intestine malnourishment or nutrient imbalances ensue. Over time the inflammation leads to tears in the intestinal wall. The microscopic tears allow undigested particles of food to pass through the intestinal wall directly into the bloodstream. These undigested particles get tagged by the immune system as ‘invaders' and antibodies develop.
This is what causes the immune response to certain foods and explains how food allergies are more than just a digestive response. Over time the immune system gets taxed, and the adrenals wear out from all the allergic reactions.
It's a terrible, toxic situation.
And the cure is in healing the digestive tract and intestinal lining. Check out my Gut Rebuilding Program to heal the foundation of your health.
