Welcome to Ask Whole9 Canada, where Summer Innanen and Sarah Ramsden answer all of your health and nutrition questions. In this week’s episode, Lisa on the East Coasts who asks, “I have been paleo for over three years but continue to have food sensitivities. Is there a way to get rid of them?”
We always encourage you to do your own self-experimentation after you have completed your Whole30 in order to determine what foods you may be sensitive to. However, if you find that you are sensitive to a certain food, this does not always mean that you will be sensitive to it indefinitely.
In this episode of S&STV, we discuss the following:
- The difference between a food sensitivity and an allergy
- The reasons why you may be vulnerable to more food sensitivities
- The importance of digestive health and how a compromised intestinal barrier can promote food sensitivities
- How healing a leaky gut is an important step in reducing food sensitivities and the appropriate steps to take in order to heal the gut
- Why a food sensitivity is a sign of systemic inflammation in the body, and when this is chronic in nature, it greatly increases your chances of serious inflammatory health conditions
- The importance of bone broth and probiotics in healing the digestive tract
Sarah has many recipes for fermented foods on her website here.
