Allergies are the real deal and effect many people daily. Intolerances are also a huge topic but what about food sensitivities? Do you wear a special pair of pants when you go out knowing that they expand well to a full or bloated belly? Well, what if we said to you, ‘maybe it is all in your head?’ How would you feel? We are sure you would immediately become defensive and call us crazy. We get it, that is totally normal to react and we may react the same way if someone said it to us–but just hear us out.
All of the foods you have been passing up for all those years really could all be for nothing. Food sensitivity is when you experience digestive distress after consuming food. Have you ever noticed that you feel extra bloated after eating something really greasy? Or your bowels go a bit crazy after some foods and not others? These are just a couple signs of food sensitivity. If any of the sounds familiar don’t worry! Most of us have all be there at some point But think about this too, have you ever had a hard time keeping food down when you were extremely nervous? Our emotions play a huge role in the way we digest food
This is because our emotions play a huge role in how our bodies operate and in this case–digesting food. So what we are saying is that maybe those foods you thought you were sensitive to was actually just a coincidence and really your emotions played the aggravating digestion role. Begin to take a moment to recognize how you feel before, during and after consuming food. Recognize your environments and the emotions that play into them during your eating environment.
If you feel some deep emotions, it will be best for you to sort those emotions our first before you eat. Regardless of what you eat, you may not feel that great due to the emotions and not because of the food you consumed. Just start paying attention to it more and I bet you will see some clarity in your digestion and food choices. Also, taking a probiotic is extremely helpful with digestion.
