After to speaking to so many people at one of the biggest Allergy Shows in the UK about intolerances, I decided to write this week’s blog on the reason you could have intolerances and how to rectify the symptoms.

New research from Mintel reveals that as many as 86% of all British adults have suffered some form of gastrointestinal (GI) problem or ailment* in the last year. Overall the nation’s top three tummy issues include: wind, bloating or flatulence (62%), followed by indigestion (53%) and diarrhoea (50%). [1]

Now, all of the above GI symptoms could mean you have a damaged gut, which is why you could be suffering with food intolerances to things like dairy, garlic and gluten etc.

A damaged gut means that instead of foods being broken down, absorbed and eliminated, partially digested foods can now cross through the damaged area of the intestinal lining and enter the blood stream directly. This leak can cause intolerances that then initiate an inflammatory response in the body and the release of stress hormones. This can then lead to a host of issues that may not seem related to a damaged gut, like intolerances, skin conditions, achy joints and stubborn weight gain to name but a few.
